Wow! Not much music like this around. This is to folk what the Flaming Lips is to, err, Rock. Completely tripped-out but completely accessible, it is acoustic music pushed to its literal extreme, a modern day 'Pipers at the Gates of Dawn'. Underscored by often tribal rhythms, the Collective mix extraordinary vocal harmonies with playful electronics to create richly orchestrated songs that paradoxically retain a campfire spontaneity whilst being unbelievably well crafted. 'Leaf House' opens the album with spectacular vocal harmonies and a pulsing rhythm, two minutes of madness unrivalled on any record this year. 'The Softest Voice' is haunting spectral folk that shows they can play it straight, a kind of acid comedown from the hyperactive rushes of opening two songs. 'Winters Love' builds from a hushed piece of acoustica not dissimilar from some Four Tet and bursts into a new frenetic tempo, building layers of melody until it reaches an impossibly infectious loop of pastoral glory. 'Kids on Holiday' is a demented trip of distorted, dubby bubbliness which is saturated with childish anticipation and peaks with yells of 'Holidays!' and is much better than I can possibly describe. There are lots of other highlights too numerous to discuss, including the animal stomp of 'We Tigers' and the mind-boggling 'Good Lovin Outside', and there are only two let-downs, the over-long Visiting Friends and the weak last track 'Whattit I done', but nothing detracts this from being possibly the only 5 star album this year.

Some music really is new. Animal Collective's new album has echoes of music past - Friends era Beach Boys, Boredoms, Moondog, Cornelius circa Point - but it's all pulled together in a way that is totally current. You'll notice how upon first listen how it's almost too dense, voices are everywhere, the harmonies are as thick as the best Brian Wilson pieces, each track has a rollicking percussion base, a number of acoustic guitars and noises stutter away. But you'll keep coming back and each time you'll make more sense of it. There's enough melody on this album to keep most regular guitar bands going for a whole career.
Sung Tongs has a youthful exuberence to it that is infectious. I've listened to this album at least ten times since I bought it two days ago! And before you compain - this is no rush of first love. The last album that hit me in this way was Boredoms 'Vision Creation Newsun' and that was three years ago! And I still love that record now.
Sung Tongs - add some music to your day!

I saw Animal Collective live and found myself feeling baffled, amused and inspired all at once. So i bought this album as soon as it was released. It blends a variety of sounds and styles and twists them into an original whole. The music is mostly acoustic although there appears to be electronic manipulation and perculiar effects present. The vocals range from gorgeous harmonies to tribal shouting with unconventional lyrics. It's an offbeat mix of psychedelia, folk, pop and electronics with strange songs structures. I have played it to a number of people but sadly most of them just looked either confused or slightly scared. However, if you are after something weird and different, this may be the best album you'll buy all year. I have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars - pure genius!

Similar to the reviewer previous, i caught this band live with Mum and was mightily confused... An array of almost Taliking Heads rythmics, early Mercury Rev madness, primal shouting and Tyrannasaurus Rex flambouyance but still all over the place yet exceptionally controlled in their song structures...
The record lived up to everything you see live. Initially it confuses and has a minor tendancy to trundel off down into teenage acidland territory but after a few listens becomes an obsessive listen. Join the daily habit folks, this truly is a little orange flavoured little peach that makes you want to swing from the handrails on the underground and shout in glee.

Although Fat Cat's reissues of Animal Collective's records on vinyl lets you avoid paying eBay prices for the now out of print originals, they are still a pretty penny. Owing in part to the "DMM" mastering, which I think is basically a gimmick to extract more cash from collectors and fans. Regardless, the pressing is flawless and this is a record that is certainly more enjoyable on vinyl. There seemed to be a limited run of these re-pressings and they are disappearing fast (they aren't even available in the States) so get them now, or kick yourself later when they inevitably start appearing on eBay. As for the music, well, it's Sung Tongs. Arguably AC's most cohesive statement and unquestionably one of the great records of the 00s.
