CD People [Animal Collective]
The Wire (p.61) - "Its title track is a joyous tribal rollercoaster buoyed along on a rabble-rousing bass line, uplifting vocalising and jangling guitar..."
CD Sung Tongs
Rolling Stone (p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 - "Animal Collective make their songs cackle with soulful eccentricity while dazzling you with deceptive chops and improvised manipulations....SUNG TONGS is its own creature, and it's got plenty of virtuosity and flair."Uncut (p.85) - 5 stars out of 5 - "This is rustic and otherworldly music....SUNG TONGS is their sixth and best album....Rarely has contrived weirdness sounded so utterly bewitching."Magnet (p.80) - "[O]n SUNG TONGS, they use their powers for good pop....As satisfying as Animal Collective can be when resistant and unkempt, domestication suits the band well."Magnet (p.67) - Ranked #20 in Magnet's "The 20 Best Albums Of 2004" - "Animal Collective captured the sound of its own feral, autistic inner child."
CD Prospect Hummer [EP] [Digipak]
Spin (p.108) - "This EP dresses Bunyan's spider-web-soft utterances with Animal Collective's rhythmic harmonies and untethered acoustic strums." -- Grade: B+The Wire (p.51) - "PROSPECT HUMMER is as beautiful yet insubstantial as origami....The songs fall together and apart as you listen, their transience making them all the more poignant."Mojo (Publisher) (p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[A]n EP-long excursion into summer-kissed bliss."
CD Fleet Foxes [2-CD] [Digipak]
Rolling Stone (p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A lower-dosage Animal Collective, the Foxes stuff their free-form songs with rich, swirling melodies; bellowing clouds of organs...and bells and assorted stringed instruments..."Rolling Stone (p.90) - Ranked #11 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "[T]he prettiest album of the year, and the warmest."Spin (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "FLEET FOXES is warm and cathartic, with all the hopefulness of a balmy summer night."Spin (p.52) - Ranked #5 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "Fleet Foxes distinguish themselves from the vintage-vinyl crowd by infusing their rootsy retro-pop moves with a sense of mystery..."Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "'Ragged Wood' moseys in on breezy harmonies, transforming the folk rock to beach pop in the pick of a high, tensile guitar string." -- Grade: AMagnet (p.102) - "'Ragged Wood' begins with a shuffling twang, but before settling too deeply into the standard top-down AMericana, the song downshifts into a loose, lovesick midsection whose eventual peak feels as natural as it does surprising."Q (Magazine) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he quintet win solely on the strength of their complex but unaffectedly lovely songs....A pure pleasure."Mojo (Publisher) (p.73) - Ranked #1 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "A musical tonic of our times; a reminder of what humanity is capable of."Blender (Magazine) (p.72) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Fleet Foxes go for a somber, bombed-out hippy vibe, with acoustic guitars and five-part harmonies filling 'White Winter Hymns' and 'Blue Ridge Mountains.'"Paste (magazine) (p.65) - "[W]hat we take away from the album is less a collection of specific moments and more of a feeling. It's like watching the sun rise over distant mountaintops, over and over, familiar and captivating all at once."Clash (magazine) (p.126) - "From the a capella opening to 'White Winter Hymnal' and the mature folk sensibility of 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song,' this album heralds the arrival of an interesting, seductive and confidently singular sound."Clash (magazine) (p.64) - Ranked #25 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008" -- "Blending the sweetness and innocence of '60s AM radio gems and Californian harmonies with shimmering, wide-open guitars, Fleet Foxes are a truly special band..."
