Glass half full Doof: best Panda Bear since 'Person Pitch'!

Glass half empty Doof: this album barely scrapes a 3 out of 5

It's mostly average stuff. Some brief moments of splendor but this project is growing tired.

Beautiful music. Possibly his best album, and one of the top two or 3 solo anco records.

Leagues better than the new Animal Collective. Really just a nice collection of hypnotic songs. Nothing more, nothing less.

I never thought "a slap on a jelly ass" would be a Panda Bear lyric in 2019, but here we are

4.5 superbbeefshoes | May 2nd 19

Buoys is the most reserved and minimalistic Panda Bear release so far, and it is possibly Lennox's most charming album as a result. Unlike the previous three LPs, this album is mostly free from the reverb-washed vocals and textures that largely defined Person Pitch and Tomboy. Instead, the vocals are bathed in a cold, mechanical auto-tune lacking the typical lush vocal harmonies. The album's samples are also mostly comprised of acoustic guitars, completely lacking the massive synths from Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper. Buoys takes a lot of risks, but they mostly pay off apart from a few awkward uses of water sounds (Dolphin is the worst offender). Regardless of how polarising it might be, this is arguably Lennox's most unique and consistent solo release in a decade, and I am thoroughly enjoying it.

2.5 averageSandbitchButthole | February 8th 19

When you miss your boys so much, you make your voice sound like 4 different people to compensate.

Inner Monologue is really good though.
