CRITIC REVIEWS

90
No Ripcord

With Tomboy, Panda Bear offers a proverbial yet remarkably resonant and dense album.

90
Consequence of Sound

Aside from being a top-notch album musically, it very well may be Lennox’s most accessible work to date.

85
Pitchfork

He's condensed the sprawl and stylistic shifts of Person Pitch into seemingly tidy songs.

80
Drowned in Sound

Here these 11 much shorter songs don’t so much buckle under Panda’s voice as become absorbed into it.

Great

This record really surprised me, but also kept me very relaxed. With its drone-like consistency and charismatic character, Panda Bear's 'Tomboy' is an overall chill listen, and surprisingly much better than a huge fraction of the AnCo discography.

Btw, 'Last Night at the Jetty', 'Drone', and 'Alsatian Darn' are consisted in one of the best 3 track runs ever.

Color: Red and Grey
FAV TRACKS: Drone, Alsatian Darn, Last Night at the Jetty, You Can Count on Me, Slow Motion, Benfica

It's a solid record, but an MPP to CHZ-sized step down from Person Pitch. Took me a while to warm up to it. It gets repetitive even by Panda Bear standards at times. Drowns in reverb.

Favs: Slow Motion, Alsatian Darn, Surfers Hymn, Last Night at the Jetty

Least Favs: Drone, Scheherazde

An album I often hear people claim it's not Person Pitch, as if that makes it a bad album.

Person Pitch, but not as good.
