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

“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! Avey Tare’s vocals also show a lot of growth from his yelps to his shrill screams.

Fav Tracks: Fireworks, For Reverend Green, Peacebone, Unsolved Mysteries, Derek, #1, Cuckoo Cuckoo

Least Fav Track: Nah
