Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion (2009)

On November 18, the track "Brother Sport" was leaked onto the internet by way of its inclusion in a French music podcast. The track was subsequently posted on many blogs, including Pitchfork, and now it's posted on this blog. I like Animal Collective's songs, however i think that this album is very overrrated. I see that most of critics love this album by giving high ratings. For me, this is another interesting and nice Animal Collective record, there is nothing beyond. By the way, i don't like the stupid album cover, it's a kind of trick for primary school students. "Brother Sport" is the best song from Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Word! I just published a similar review on my blog, also with remarks about the ugly album cover. Great minds think alike?

First of all, learn to use the little known but much lauded semicolon; nobody will be able to take your reviews seriously otherwise.

As for this album being overrated, I truly believe that is a misapprehension. MPP, by any standard, is one of the best releases in years to get this kind of critical exposure. The last time was probably when Ys by Joanna Newsom dropped.

I personally think it is a good thing to see, a band actually deserving it getting hype. I think this because I'm sick of seeing worthless bands like Vampire Weekend having their hackwork being praised in the blogosphere.

My two cents, whatever they're worth.
