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

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...

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.

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.

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

I feel as if this is a self reflective and meditative album that was made reclusively and influenced by drone and surfer rock music. The end result is beautiful and memorable. Panda Bear shortens his tracks yet gets flack for it, but each track still holds the atmospheric style and sound that make his role in Animal Collective a piece of the overall puzzle to them. Tomboy is no exception and is a must listen.
|4.0 excellent||NavajoJ | September 16th 11|
While "Tomboy" is as experimental and interesting as Panda Bear's previous work, it's slightly more accessible.
|2.0 poor||Crowe | August 11th 11|
. . . then Tomboy is precisely most of what Animal Collective do wrong.

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

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.

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

Four years after Person Pitch, and another stunning outing from Panda Bear. Tomboy retains the lush, Beach Boys-esque vocal harmonies from PP, but emphasises repetition to a greater extent (which could be a nod to Peter Kember's work in Spacemen 3, who produced this album). While not as innovative and unique as the previous outing, it stand toe-to-toe with MPP and PP for me, and it is sure to be one of 2011's best albums.
|4.5 superb||bigguytoo9 | April 5th 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.
|4.0 excellent||ECRbubs | April 5th 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.

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.
