This long-awaited Animal Collective album was recently released and has received much praise from both fans and critics. I think it is great. What is the CAF opinion?

No one else likes AC?

I’m sorry to say I’ve never heard of them. What kind of music do they play? And are they really a collective?

Well, it’s a different kind of music. I would call it “alternative” or “experimental”. GIve them a try; you might like it. “My Girls” and “Brother Sport” are two of the best songs from MPP.

Somewhere along the continueum Cloud Cult and Polyphonic Spree. More echo-y and synth driven.

Not a fan: they are deep into the idea of words as sound, so repeat the same phrase over and over.

Fine if you like them, but not everyone’s cuppa.
