    This album is very similar to the previous Animal Collective album, Centipede Hz and is incredibly overdone i think. Could've really benefited from a more conventional approach. The real stand out tracks on the album are Little Fang and Strange Colores which benefits from this approach. Though the rest of the album has some good melodies, it is just destroyed by the overuse of effects.

    It feels like walking through a haunted house, it's very fun, somewhat scary (in a sort of blanket with eyeholes cut out sort of way) and sort of cramped at times. Sometimes you'll get to a really jazzy, cool part like "Little Fang" and be like "woah this is awesome", and sometimes you'll get to a part where one of the actors will touch you for a little longer than is socially acceptableIt feels like walking through a haunted house, it's very fun, somewhat scary (in a sort of blanket with eyeholes cut out sort of way) and sort of cramped at times.

    This is a great album by a super band. Including Avey Tare, Angel Deradoorian and Jeremy Hyman. Little fang is a fantastic single. Although it seems like the best moments on this album are when the aren't so drowned out with effects and same goes for the vocals. Sometimes the effects are just too much. I would like to see another album that is more polished with less effects andThis is a great album by a super band. Including Avey Tare, Angel Deradoorian and Jeremy Hyman.

    A burbling psychedelic rain forest that harks back to the vintage wood nymph traditions that once defined the AnCo legacy.

    The album's stand-outs come when they soften their stance. [May 2014, p.93]
