I'll give it a listen though.
I sorta thought the same, but the new song AC has up on their Myspace is admittedly quite enjoyable.

I listened to Feels the other day. Or tried to. It'd be good if there were songs there, underneath the production.

Yeah, I listened to Sung Tongs earlier today and felt about the same way I did before...it's a fun listen, but the songs themselves aren't great, and there certainly isn't anything life-changing about it.

Oh well, more AC concert tickets for everyone else, I suppose.

Wow, this is probably the first forum I've been to where everybody doesn't just wank to AC incessantly. Nice stuff.

Still, I want to check out the new album. Curiosity more than anything.

Atease has at least two fucking threads about that album.

I love that the AC discussion thread here is also filled with condescending remarks about the band. It's like EYKIW as a whole, minus the wistfulness.

Hipinion probably has an entire subforum about it.

Upon my first five listens of this album, I found it bland, cold, and painfully repetitive. As I've continued to listen to it, some of the more infectious/poppy moments have started to become more apparent to me (My Girls), and I'm starting to get a warmer feel from the atmospheres. Right now, my current opinion of the album is more mixed, so I certainly feel that this album is highly overrated (see pitchfork review/atease forum).

Mind you, this is coming from a big AC fan who owns several of their albums and has seem them live twice (soon to be a third time).

I'm surprised to hear that, the song on their Myspace is essentially the best thing I've ever heard from them. At this point, I like Panda Bear's Person Pitch better than anything I've heard from AC, but I can certainly still understand why a lot of people love them.

Regardless, I look forward to getting the album and also to seeing reviews from other sources for it.

Holy fuzz, this Merriweather Post Pavilion joint is a spectacular record! As I said, upthread, I'm not an Animal Collective fan (in spite of my best efforts), but this record has blown me the fuck away. A bit heavy on the Person Pitch-isms, in spots ("Daily Routine" comes to mind) (also worth noting, yet again, that all that stuff was done to much better effect and with far greater and more enjoyable results on last year's Sea Lion, by the Ruby Suns), but still brilliant, to my ears! I didn't expect very much out of this record, much as I haven't expected much from them since the early days, leading up to Sung Tongs, but this shit is gold, Jerry. Gold. Unexpected, surprising, rapturous gold. Can't wait to get my hands on the vinyl release...!

Okay, seriously, though...

"Summertime Clothes" and "Brother Sport" are basically the best songs I've heard in about two years.

Like some unbearably perfect fusion of psych-folk (only completely and totally devoid of the -folk, if that makes any sense), the most sun-drenched acid-psych imaginable (I can't even think of anything, here...maybe just think about Person Pitch and Sea Lion lying in the sun for ten years and then played a bit too fast on a turntable), avant-pop (the nonsensical lyrics of Roxy Music's "Virginia Plain" come to mind), and the most incantatory, percussive, and cyclical field recordings of traditional Nyahbinghi music, these songs and this record which foolhardily attempts to contain them are threatening to make the rest of the musical year irrelevant, to me.

...Or at least the next two weeks, until that A.C. Newman solo record drops!

Just listen, damn it. I beg you.

Where did you hear it from? Did you purchase the vinyl?

If you downloaded a high-quality leak, I want in.
