Pitchfork

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.

Took me a while to realize that's a squashed strawberry in the cover art and not a rare-cooked steak

Wow, this clicked in the first listen.
Despite this being very experimental, it felt warm and welcoming. I didn't feel out of my element at all despite this being one hell of a weird album.
Nice.

“Strawberry Jam” is one of AnCo’s greatest achievements while also being one of their most accessible. The production is beautiful and the lyrics are phenomenal! But the greatest highlight of the record is Avey Tare’s vocals, showing a lot of growth from his yelps to his shrill screams.
