  • Summary: This is album number three for the side project band for Animal Collective's Dave Portner (aka Avey Tare) and Black Dice's Eric Copeland.

  1. A clear triumph, a dense work destined to grow thicker with each listen. [#266, p.65]
  2. For the most part... the seemingly endless boundaries and subtly propulsive rhythms draw the listener into an engaging world of manipulated samples and shimmering loops.
  3. For fans who are obsessed with seeking out everything Animal Collective, Black Dice, and experimental noise related, it's a fine bet, but for others this is going to rub the wrong way, which I suppose is part of the point.

    Dead Drunk will leave you feeling as if you sucked on an exhaust pipe and chased it with crystal meth. [Apr 2006, p.97]
  5. The result aims for a “shitty is pretty” messthetic that is more novelty than anything else.
  6. The entire album is too claustrophobic for its own good.
  7. Dead Drunk sounds six billion times better in concept than in execution.
