Picked this up towards end of 2018. Took a few listens to penetrate but got there

You can hear that Animal Collective was able to articulate the vibes they made on this album from the drugs they did. This is a lucid and trippy experience but it's rewarding when you finally understand what they were trying to achieve. It's abstract electronic pop but it's truly great music when you achieve the ear to hear it.

Thank god someone gave these kids a good spanking and told them “if you want people to enjoy your music, you have to actually make it sound nice”. Everything sounds so much more as if someone actually put thought in it. The songwriting isn’t as repetitive and hyperactive as the music, which makes it less of a problem that the music still is.

Chaotic, bouncy, and fun. Way ahead of its time, a pioneer of the neo-psychedelic movement. Very refreshing.

I can tell it needs repetitive listening to appreciate it more, but I feel like there's more rewarding stuff that takes a lot of listening to get.

Fun, psychedelic indie record. I'll admit I don't quite get the hype but there are fantastic moments of explosive choruses and catchy tunes that this was a fun listen.
