5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 16 April 2012

This review is from: Strawberry Jam (Audio CD)
I simply have to pass my own opinion of this record, it is truly fantastic. As it has been said many times, AC's work is somewhat divisive, some of my friends love it but some just don't get it - put off by the occasional screams, the dripping sounds and the traffic noises, too surreal and new for their boring, mainstream, conventional tastes. Animal Collective's work is so organic, so imaginative, that it conjures up sublime psychedelic pop unlike anything you will have ever heard of before. It's very difficult being an Animal Collective fan because you tell people and they just have no clue who they are - people prefer instant gratification in the likes of Travis or The Killers, while with Animal Collective it may take a few listens to really 'get' it - but believe me, it is so worth it - you will be justly rewarded. 'Peacebone', 'Unsolved Mysteries' and 'Winter Wonderland' are three of my favourites, while 'Derek' is just so incredibly catchy, I never though a lighthearted song about a childhood pet could turn out to be so brilliant. The double of 'For Reverend Green' and 'Fireworks' is the best work they had ever done (until their latest album). These guys will never support a Coldplay gig, but maybe that's a good thing.

This album may change your life and by simply listening to it you will have joined a select group of people with the willingness to try new things. Give it a few listens, and if you haven't done so already, buy Merriweather Post Pavilion, their later album as it is like this but on another level.
