I was thinking the same thing cb. After the second listen, I noticed the lack of intense moments found in Reverend Green, but this works.

when that distorted keyboard/guitar/whatever comes in at 5 seconds in summertime clothes, it sends chills down my spine. the main riff the song is built around is incredible also. avey and panda bear work together impeccably on the track. the chorus is one of the best animal collective melodies/moments ever. definitely the track thats most reminscent of sj also.

The melody in the crazy part on In the Flowers reminds me of SJ, I think it kinda sounds like Unsolved Mysteries

Fantastic album, and a great way to start off the new year of music. I've never heard an Animal Collective album before, and this makes me really want to go into their back catalogue.

I've been a casual fan of Animal Collective since my friend showed me Strawberry Jam about a year ago. I then listened to Feels, Sung Tongs and Panda Bear's Person Pitch and they are all really good but all of them were kinda lacking something. Merriweather Post Pavilion is just on a whole other level. I haven't enjoyed an album this much since... well probably ever. Ok maybe that's an exaggeration but this is a fantastic record and I highly recommend checking it out. And now to get back to listening to it... :DThis Message Edited On 01.06.09

Summertime Clothes makes me warm and fuzzy inside. I haven't been this attached to an album since The Microphones - The Glow, Pt. 2

I actually like the first track the best, the flower one. The first two and a half minutes are peaceful.



Then it explodes.



And is great until the very end. That and Guys Eyes(I think). The one with the weird voices put in.
