The story of this record ... is the strength of Avey Tare's voice, and how his singing anchors these songs, invigorates the band's idiosyncratic melodies, and offers a clear portal into Animal Collective's utopian dreamworld.

Más pesados que nunca, Animal Collective agarra ese puñado de agresividad que los caracterizó en Hollinndagain y con un sonido más experimental logra hacer algo que por sí tiene un grado de rareza (o sino miren su portada y se darán cuenta de lo que hablo) y lo intensifica con claras canciones que difícilmente no resuenen en tu cabeza.

PD: Fireworks está en mi top 3.

AnCo expand their sound even further from 'Feels' to something way more playful and colourful. Absolutely love Avey's vocals here especially on 'For Reverend Green.' I'd say that this album is probably the best starting point for this band as it presents everything that makes them so essential.

Favourite tracks: Peacebone, For Reverend Green, Winter Wonder Land

One of their most colorful and varied projects, Strawberry Jam illustrates perfectly what Animal Collective really is: an intense, disform and adventurous group with lots of weird ideas that blend together in an almost liquid fluid-form. This record has both experimental, challenging moments and catchy, memorable songs in the same measure, which makes the album a fun experience. This may be a good start to newcomers in the Animal Collective territory. Highly recommended.
