Animal Collective- Merriweather Post Pavilion
LINKS REMOVED BY REQUEST
I guess I don't really get it.
I love experimental music and I am from Baltimore (Merriweather Post was where I used to spend my summers watching concerts), so I am predisposed to like Animal Collective, but I just haven't been won over yet.
The calls for 'album of 2009' are absolutely rediculous both becuase we are in the first week and more importantly this album just isn't spectacular. Pitchfork gave Merriweather a 9.6 rating, SPIN - 4 stars.
I don't think this is terrible by any means, here are some of my favorite tracks off Merriweather Post Pavilion below, I just think all the hype has tarnished these guys a little bit.
