Raconte must be the most divisive song that we've seen here in quite some time. I don't think that anyone feels moderate about it.

I know I think those of you not in love with it are insane, so I suppose I agree

Raconte is pretty pedestrian Animal Collective-ish stuff.

It's nice, but very middle of the road if you have been all over indie music for a couple of years.

What does Animal Collective even sound like anymore? The Animal Collective I knew from the Sung Tongs days bears no resemblance to the MPP stuff. I don't know that Raconte doesn't sound like M83 either.

I always find AC comparisons confusing, fwiw.

Regardless of what Raconte may resemble musically, it's the combination of that and the girl's musings that make it so special. That vocal sure doesn't remind me of Animal Collective.

When I read Canadien's post the first time, I thought he said Animal Crossing so I couldn't figure out what he was suggesting, except maybe that Animal Crossing is an average cutesy game, but nothing spectacular...

Pretty pedestrian if you've played The Sims for a couple of years.

Having now heard Raconte several times, I think that putting the spoken-word bit in French would have vastly improved the song by giving it a bit of mystery, at least to us Anglophones. As much as I try to understand the lyrics, though, I just cannot comprehend what he was trying to accomplish there. It doesn't work as a child's fantasy. It doesn't work as a hallucinogenic parable. It doesn't work as ecological warning. It doesn't work as a political commentary based on the pejorative term "Frog." It doesn't work as some sort of postmodern exercise in absurdity. It's just an utter train-wreck lyrically. Apologies to those of you who like it.

I think you're looking into it way too much.
