i don't think that makes much sense... what are they trying to prove? that music is some weird sounds with effects and that everyone can make music without effort?


Are you saying that weird sounds with effects is not music?

They are enjoyable but the NORMAL versions sound better, right?

It is a good idea but they should include a bonus disc with the NORMAL tracks..

Wierd sounds with effects isn't good music, you may call it music, but it's not good.

Regardless, it is art. To me, a backwards track is the same played forward. The music is still in tact.

I like experimental music though. The world's got enough 'normal' tracks out there. Plenty of room for some innovation.

I see where you're coming from though.

I like experimental music too, but this idea of the CD being brilliant confuses me...
And I never claimed that it isn't art...


tiffany's such a rebel.. smoking pot on a non-smokers venue!

must be bad going to an awesome show and be prohibited to smoke a cigar... thank god for 3rd world countries

eric was the first act and also the worst. we had to wait two hours after the doors opened for him and when he came on it sounded like jargon noise. when you plugged your ears you could hear the beat and it sounded much better.

everybody was smoking pot in a non-smoking venue so i hope you partake in the goodness. also, try not to cry when fireworks comes on.

I can't wait though.

I don't think I'm gonna smoke any pot. My dad is coming with me. LAME.

I'm going to try to get one of my friends to go, so he'll just stay at the back of the venue and we can be up in front.

Well for one, I get my drivers license in January. And second, my parents would probably freak at the thought of their wittle ol' Alex driving a whopping one and a half hours to LA late at night without a parent. It sucks, but whatever. I'd rather go with him than not at all.

I know he probably won't like this show, but I don't really care, I just want a friend to come with me so that he will go sit in the back with his Nintendo DS or PSP or something.
#168
your dad is going to AC with you? and he has a DS and PSP?
is he actually cool or is he trying to maintain his youth?

Quote by sydbarrettsaves
no kidding! but this is a recent development in seattle. there was no smoking and no re-entry. but there was a lot of groping and other nice things to make up for it. i wish you were there sponjy so we could make out and be rebels together ;_;



jeez, what's next? no drinking?

I'm sure if I went with you we'd be the most indie and rebel couple there

He likes his gadgets. He loves being the first of his friends to have the cool new stuff. He bought a PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 on the first day they came out. As for Animal Collective, he is just wants me to be happy or something...

what are your tongs like?


Acoustic-Synth-Pop-Folk. It's only a tad bit less appealing than Feels. Probably third most accessible album next to Feels and Strawberry Jam.


EDIT: Oh I thought that said Sung Tongs.


Oh well. I guess now you know what Sung Tongs is like.

So here's a question. What exactly does Geologist do on stage? I know he hits a bunch of buttons and tweaks a bunch of knobs. And he does it in a sexy way. But specifically, I'd like to know what the hell he's doing.
#183
I'm not going to lie, I like this album better than Feels. It reminds me of what Here Comes The Indian may have been like with more song structure and less crazy. Haha

Also I am loving the screaming that Avey is doing in For Reverend Green.

From the article: "Animal Collective are a pair of prescription glasses: pass them around in a large enough room and through them some people will see clearly. I think I can make the image out - but it’s way too blurry for me to keep staring at it."

... Yeah, same with every musician or group. That's a key principal of art.

The article is good though. It doesn't really slam Animal Collective, except maybe a few criticizism of repition, which is obviously something the writer doesn't like. But he makes it pretty clear that their music is something that isn't for him. I like their repetition, particularly live. The time flies by.

I just hate music critics, especially the ones in my area. They think their taste defines what good is. This guy is rather humble though.

I second that opinion. Great album in my opinion.
