Lewis, I was saying Strawberry Jam is an album that is still eclectic enough to avoid the pure homogeneity of MPP, but I could hear them restricting some of the diversity and contrast that made Sung Tongs enjoyable. It was still a weird *** surprising album, but the extrema were clipped. Neatly trimmed, making the listening experience somewhat more unified. Sorry if that was unclear. Think of it like Dowsing Anemone with Copper Tongue. It's a transition between the obvious use of metal in Choirs of the Eye to the absence of metal in Blue Lambency Downward. Strawberry Jam was a transitional album in that respect. I could hear them hint at some real homogeneity in Strawberry Jam's diminished textural and song to song variety.

Word, makes sense. I'm still a little lost as to how you feel the album was "neatly trimmed" but you're probably viewing it from a different angle than I am- which, to be honest, is a large reason why I like Animal Collective so much because everyone seems to have their own personal view on any one album.
And I do agree that the homogeneity makes MPP more immediately listenable, though that's the exact opposite of why I ever listened to them in the first place.

Explain?

Yeah, my Best Buy had like 3 come in or something. Its a pretty high profile release the kind of thing Best Buy highlights as its "indie pick"
