While some may scoff at the gentler side of the Animal Collective (especially when contrasted with the fully electric assault of last year's studio release), Sung Tongs easily stands alone as a crowning achievement in their eclectic discography, one that finds the group fully in control of their musical prowess and all the better for it.

JojoDec 1, 2004I give it a 10 based solely in relation to other 2004 releases. This is the album of the year, for sure.
NickAug 30, 2005Leaf House may be the best song ever written. Beside that this album evokes all that I love from music. Wholly unique and completely infactuating.
