This is a great album, but it takes many, many listens to understand. I bet most people who rated this album only listened once or twice which i guess is fair enough but if you put in the effort it really pays off.

well that was on my old account where i only 5'd my favorite albums

i'd give this an honest 4 or 4.5, probably a permanent 4.5 cause it really opened my ears to a lot of
new ideas on how to approach music and got me enticed into like how silence or just really quiet
moments in music can bring out some awesome stuff. also it holds one of my favorite songs (meet the
light child) and always hits the perfect mood for whenever i don't know what to listen to

everything animal collective does is genius for me, they're like one of my favorite bands/artists

it's probably a stupid album to a lot of people and i can bet a shit load of super smart music scholars (LAKES) will attest to it being one of the worst things of all time but i don't rate albums off of musicianship just how it compares in enjoyment to the other things i've rated

i love this album lol, it hit me as hard as everything else i gave a 4.5 so it stays there
and yeah, kman all their old stuff is incredible

this isn't one of the worst things of all time, it's pleasant at times but it's also boring and grating and not really anything special despite sounding relatively unique

umm yeah obviously with music like this, conventional notions of "musicianship" are thrown out the window and you have to look at this in terms of how enjoyable and interesting you find this music as opposed to whether you think other people would be able to see it as a classic.

as you can see i currently have this as a 3, i would say it's still far closer to 3.5 than 2.5 and i guess i don't really look back on this album as being that great because i've realized there's a lot of experimental music that interests me more than this and also hollindagain is significantly better than this (to me). but i still wouldn't say that this release is boring. grating, i guess that's part of it's appeal, i would say grating in a good way. and i don't really disagree with my review of this considering it an above average album because it IS an above average album and i feel this release definitely deserves a positive review because it's so underrated.

"Its the least atmospheric by far" -- that's an odd thing to say considering atmosphere plays a bigger part here than melody. it's just not a "pretty" atmosphere or what you would normally think of atmosphere. strawberry jam stands out to me as their least atmospheric...it has some strawberry-esque electronic sounds here and there but it has far more of a focus on avey's singing/melody than on atmosphere.
