animal collective's new one reminds me of genisus
honestly, it does. and i mean that in a good way. its as if genisus was actually good or something. and its totally pop. its not noise pop, avant pop, wierdo pop, its just lush, organic, melodic, harmonic, and beautiful pop music.

ive listened to "merriweather post pavillion" twice and its easily the best thing since "sung tungs", a far grater acheivement that its two predecessors. the vocals were the most immediatly impressive thing to me, they really have mastered that harmonizing thing they do. much better use of electronics and synths on this record too. ill need to listen more but this might be the animal collective album that really does it for me.

now hears the wierd part, i knew ac had a record coming out, and that it was anticipated, but i had no idea itd been out for three godamned weeks already! im totally out of the loop on the indie scope, but that's because most indie sucks. animal collective by lorrd doesnt suck though.

Do you mean Genesis?

greedrex 02.02.2009 03:31 PM

that's what i was gonna say. I don't know any genisus.

Anyway, I love it. I really do. Though, I think it's tied with STRAWBERRY JAM. And truthfully, I think DANSE MANATEE is the only AC release I dont think is great.

its still registering as an ok album for me. my girls is an amazing song tho..... shouldnt it be "genii"?

noisereductions 02.02.2009 04:17 PM

^ "My Girls" is incredible. No denying that.

Rob Instigator 02.02.2009 04:39 PM

i prefer the zero boys reissue of their first album.

HaydenAsche 02.02.2009 05:55 PM

It hasn't grown on me to the point of their other releases.

Onani Nic 02.02.2009 05:59 PM

I have no desire to listen to this album.

Savage Clone 02.02.2009 06:06 PM

Everything since Here Comes The Indian has left me completely cold.

It must be due to Peter Gabriel's absence from the group after that time.

speaking of listening to this album.... i finally heard it. i went to play chess at a cafe and it came on. it's way overproduced and pretty bad. not as bad as "strawberry jam", but still bad. it didn't distract me from winning my chess match.

Everyneurotic 02.02.2009 07:11 PM

seems mediocre to me still.

strawberry jam grew on me, so anything can happen. thank goodness it's not as turdtastic as feels.

noisereductions 02.02.2009 07:35 PM

I just thought of a good band name: VaGenesis.

ricechex 02.02.2009 10:06 PM

It reminds of YES bc of the vocal harmonies. Still, not a bad thing when you can do something new with it.
