additional thoughts: I've spent the last month with this album and its really grown on me a lot. I LOVE the middle third especially, but I'm at a point where I can enjoy the entire album from start to finish. Why is panda talking about slapping a jelly ass and cheeky slaps LOL! The man still loves his repetitions, but he is more restrained in that sense which I think is a good thing.

I Know I Don't Know/Master/Buoys all day

This album sounds amazing on some quality headphones.

Since this is my first review of a 2019 release I will start this off with my totally random theory in which decade defining albums often come out at the first and last year of the 10 year cycle. With that said, it is my belief (and hope) that we are entering a 2 year period where we will see lots of good albums. Panda Bear is a good place to start.

What is with AC related releases leaking on holidays. MPP on Xmas, Panda Bear on Thanksgiving... Ok Ok the day before Thanksgiving.

Wow, Noah is sounding so crisp and clean, very easy to make out the vocals. His tone is something else, although the melodies aren't as complex as we are used to from him. This is Panda no doubt, but this album has a unique feel from his others. Its over in a flash and sounds great on some quality headphones. Not his best, but a worthy addition.

All about the title track!
