I think Mt. Zoomer is their best album.
Don’t leave out “Animal In Your Care,” great jam.
Someone must have been taking a nap while pitchfork booked their fest.
I wish he had kept the drum track on “Surfer’s Hymn,” that sounded a little bit cooler at Governors Island. Certainly doesn’t take much away from the album though.
Agreed. I feel like this review was already half written before the album was listened to. All of the reports leading up to the release have provided a pretty easy narrative that just about any set of songs would have had a tough time wiggling out of. As for apathy, there are times on Is This It? when Casablancas sounds like he’s about to fall asleep.
If this had come out in a vacuum, I think we’d note the couple bum tracks, get into the handful of really solid tunes that you mentioned, and feel grateful for the album as a whole. Maybe with time.
“The Suburbs” can now take its rightful place alongside “How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.”
Looks like you need a towel for all that egg on your face!
Does this mean new Animal Collective material?
The Suburbs is no less of a turd than those other albums.
Is he reading the lyrics off of the paper on the ground?
Oingo Boingo gets shut out again.
