EDITORS’ NOTES

Prepare to enter the world of your inner child, where words are rendered meaningless and every sight and sound is wonderfully new—that's the feel of this colorful 2004 album. Chiming, folky fingerpicking weaves through Avey Tare and Panda Bear's close harmonies on "The Softest Voice" and "Mouth Wooed Her," while assorted sounds (and their own voices) get twisted and looped into giddy exhaustion. Still, it all feels incredibly organic, like two children gleefully running through a forest ("Good Lovin Outside") before sitting by the campfire to clap and strum in celebration ("We Tigers").

The first true great animal collective album!

Although this is still one of their more challenging albums, it is one of the most creative and thought provoking albums I have ever listened to. A must listen for any AnCo fan and anyone looking to have their mind bent.

Flawless

Since its release this album has stood unwaveringly as my absolute favorite piece of music. It's beyond flawless, it's a masterpiece like none other with no rival out there.
