0.0 Deviant STAFF | April 4th 11

I rate albums 5 after 1 day all the timerBut in all honesty, this is merely good and nothing more. Panda Bear attempts to take the sprawling mess of Animal Collective and wrap it into something resembling cohesiveness. And it works to a certain degree, except the original foundation was never that good to begin with, thus the re-interpretation suffers as a result. I see no second coming of Christ here

Remember that first time you used hyperbole? Yeah it's kinda like that.

5.0 classicTom Tom | April 4th 11

koala bears are cuter. but technically they aren't even bears. so i don't even know why i brought that up.r

1.0 awfulJohn Lennon beat his wife. STAFF | April 4th 11

All these songs sound so damn good,even if their meaning's hollow...

Hollow words dry out your mouth
and you might find it hard to swallow
all this shit that we keep feeding
to keep ourselves and you believing
that no money can change us then a door opens up and some devil persuades us...

This is good and all, but House of Balloons is better... sorry Noah
rbut they are completely different albums why would they ever have to be compared

Sometimes I feel bad for not thinking that this guy is the greatest thing since Jesus Christ...but then again I'm always right.

4.5 superbAdam Knott EMERITUS | April 4th 11

So guys, it might be time to rethink all those 5s you gave Merriweather Post Pavilion. This is everything that Animal Collective's last LP could have been. I'll just stand over here while you guys come to terms with that.

Everytime i try to listen to this i get even more disappointed, im just going to quit before i start to get worried about his next release

3.5 greatJohn weathered old reviewer Hanson STAFF | April 4th 11

People are gonna come at this album expecting to "get" Animal Collective/Panda Bear, and its unfortunate that this doesn't do anything to convert the 'non-believers' that Merriweather Post Pavilion didn't already do. However, its still a great album, only marred by its perhaps too light nature. Also, "Drone" is kind of annoying (and yes, I get it).

It's really a shame that a sound-off must be 50 characters because "thank you" is all I have to say.

4.5 superbSean Milo | April 3rd 11

This will most likely hit a 5. My mind is blown. I knew I could count on you, Noah.

4.0 excellentNavajoJ | September 16th 11

While "Tomboy" is as experimental and interesting as Panda Bear's previous work, it's slightly more accessible.

Bump

2.0 poorCrowe | August 11th 11

. . . then Tomboy is precisely most of what Animal Collective do wrong.

Bump

3.5 greatRodrigo | May 2nd 11

This album makes me a not so happy Panda. Not as bad as sexual harrassment but not as good as... sexual harrassment.

Bump

4.0 excellentstillill124 | May 1st 11

Tomboy blew my mind completely upon my first listen, then it quickly lost its excitement. Luckily these songs have replay value. Could use some song dynamic I guess. Surfer's Hymn is truly incredible though, perfect song imo.

Bump

2.5 averageshazwagon | April 13th 11

Can't connect to this record AT ALL.rTo me it comes across as strained, self-conscious, repetitive and empty.

Bump

2.5 averageJerrad Williams | April 6th 11

There are some good songs here but some of the effects really take away from the songs and even annoy me to the point of turning this album off and listening to Person Pitch.

Bump

4.5 superbbigguytoo9 | April 4th 11

pretty excellent album, not as demanding or as indept as Person Pitch was. I am kinda missing the 12 minute epics, either way its a good addition to the Animal Collective/Side Project pile of albums.

Bump

4.0 excellentEthan | April 4th 11

It's awesome, sure, but once the initial shock wears off I think more people will realize that it's not quite as good as Person Pitch or the last few Animal Collective albums.

Bump

3.5 greatSleaper | April 4th 11

SOOOO good mayyn,ronly one song i dislike.. drone. one of the most boring songs ive heard in my life lol, but apart from that its simply awesome

3.0 goodAndru Okenuf | April 4th 11

As talented as Noah Lennox is, his latest release is neither novel enough nor engaging enough to merit the endless praise that undoubtedly will be lavished upon it.
