why don't people like this?
>>99699470It's Not Good.
because pitchfork.com told them not to
>>99699470It's honestly just not that great. The first album was better, Here Comes The Indian was better, Sung Tongs was better, the pop stuff starting with Feels was better. everybody loves Essplode and I do like Penguin Penguin a lot but this album felt a lot like noise just for noise's sake.
>>99699470Way too disjointed just like Hollinndagain. Animal Collective is best when they're making somewhat coherent songs and not one take jams with noisy ambience.
>>99700142>>99700146honestly? you have been filtered.
>>99699470better than spiritdon't @ me
>>99699470every song on this album is great. their best albumzoomers fuck off
while Animal Crack Box is the worst Anco release to date, even it is more interesting than Danse Manatee, which is just sleep music
>>99699470essplode is pretty great
they're all good
>>99700472Campfire Songs is criminally underrated
>>99700173Cool response with no argument
This is now a ranking thread.Feels > HCTI > CS > MPP > SJ > STGSTV > PW > Hollinn > DM > ST > Sleep Cycle > CHz > TR > Person Pitch > Oddsac > Pullhair Fucking RubeyeFor the sake of brevity, I didn’t include any lives other than Hollinn, nor most of the solos, nor any EP’s.
>>99700597STG > Hollinndagain = Danse Manatee = Sung Tongs = Feels > Campfire Songs >>> MPP > Here Comes The Indian > Strawberry Jam >>>> Tangerine Reef > Painting With
>>99700681Oops I forgot Centipede Hz, which would be equal to Strawberry Jam
>>99700597I can't even rank them properly because like 7 of them are 9/10+. Top 3 in no particular orderSleep CycleSTGSTVFeels
danse manatee>hollinndagain>stgstv>sung tongs>here comes the indian>campfire songs>strawberry jam> feels > mpp
>>99700681I know I'm a part of the minority for thinking PW is a genuinely great album, but even accepting the consensus that it's bad, it clearly isn't the worst they've done. Did you leave CHz and Oddsac off the list just so PW would be last?>>99700701Oh, nevermind, but now I'm interpreting this as an insult to SJ.
>>99700767sj had a lot of duds i feel... unsolved mysteries, chores, #1, and derek mostly. it's still a great album though, just as CHz is. PW does not have much other than Floridada and Lying in the Grass, the rest are *fine* but just kind of bland
STGSTV > Sung Tongs > Campfire Songs > Danse Manatee = Feels > MPP > Here Comes the Indianhaven't listened to Strawberry Jam yet
I honestly can't even remember what it sounds like.
>>99700490for real. it's exactly what it sets out to be. some cozy and relaxing music
>>99699470its actually not that good. hoollindagain and crack box sound similarly fucked up but are way better.
>>99700142This. The critical part is "just for noise's sake". They can make good use of noisy stuff, but DM just feels like them fucking around without any real idea what they were trying to make.
>>99701384you are missing several albums, hollindigaan, centipede hz, prospect hummer, fall be kind, not even counting their albums since 2016
>>99700755Nobody cares about how edgy you are for putting MPP last faggot
>itt: filtered plebs
The Fireworks/Essplode mix is the best live performance anco has ever done also >>99700597listen to the fixed version of Pullhair Rubeye I honestly love it
>>99699470It's a great album and almost everything they made after it was a mistake
>>99700848Derek isn't a dud I've definitely started appreciating it a lot more once I realized what cuckoo cuckoo is actually about. Works really well as like an emotional come down

>>99702812Young Prayer is literally their best solo album overall
>>99702590Fireworks is straight up their best track to date.>Pullhair Rubeye but reversedI mean, it's listenable? My ranking in my notepad (I autistically rank every discography I complete in my phone's notes) says the five worst Anco-affiliated albums are Slasher House, Crack Box, Buoys, the reversed version of Rubeye, and Rubeye in descending order. Though I will say that I haven't heard the reversed version in a while and I've forgotten what it sounds like.>>99702848>Young Prayer is literally their seventh worst album overallI'm pretty sure that's what you meant to say. Look on the bright side, it's better than Oddsac and the albums I listed above, that has to mean something, right?
>>99699470they got filtered
>>99699470I listened through once and thought "this is cool"
