Comments: This is the best CD that I've ever heard. I'm usually really hesitant to give out a perfect 10 out of 10 score to an album. But with Merriweather I have come to decide that every single track is amazing. If you aren't into experimental, spacey, and naturey sounding music, you might not dig. If you take into account everything the Animal Collective's puts into one song, you will realize how complex yet simplistic each song is. The great thing about Merriweather is that not all of the songs are upbeat or slow. There is a nice mix of rhythm. Merriweather takes elements of prior Animal Collective albums in producing a most complete and experimental record. Listen up hopeful experimental bands and take note of Merriweather. I'd go as far as to say Merriweather has set the standard for future psychedelic music. A few of my favorites are: "My Girls"; "Also Frightened"; and "Brothersport".
