so under appreciated. Completely unique and original and creative and yet modern!! a classic band that deserve all manner of praise; a sound like nothing else and yet one that never seems to sacrifice feel - brilliant

Great band! Full of great songs. Fall Be Kind, Prospect Hummer, Sung Tongs, Strawberry Jam and Merriweather Post-Pavillion are my favourite albums! :D

I've only heard Sung Tongs, Feels and Strawberry Jam in full, but damn these guys are so special in my life. They are very cryptic with their themes and their musical ideas are very all over the place, but that's what makes them so fun and interesting artists to follow. Also, Winter's Love is my favourite song of all time, so you'd figure that I'd like them a lot.

Very well made album... don't know yet if in ten years I'll see them as an hype thing. Let's see. Overall, it's a good pop album.

Must-see in live. Seeing them in live was one of the most amazing times in my lifetime. They change my way of listening to music, and they succeed to change the indie pop, which is frankly awesome. An awesome band, surprising and wonderful.

These guys are absolutely crazy!!!!! And honestly that's why I love them!!! I once read a negative article about how Animal Collective fans onlylike them because they're weird and differnet from the norm, but I don't really feel that when I listen to them. Fantastic band, they get bonus points for their awesome level of uniqueness!!!!

Combining freak folk, 60s sunshine pop, the oddball experimentations of The Residents and electronic textures, Animal Collective have built their influences into an ever-changing sound of their own.
