There isn't a whole lot to say about Merriweather Post Pavilion that hasn't already been said. As a product of a hyperactive blog culture, the latest full-length album from Brooklyn/Baltimore based Animal Collective is as divisive an offering as they come. On one hand, you have the obsessives who approach every Animal Collective related project with wide-eyed acclaim and suffocating enthusiasm, while on the other side you have the tunnel vision pundits who hold firm that the band and all its byproducts are a vacuous representation of a vampiric hype culture. However, to say that the answer lies somewhere in between would be way too easy-- the truth is, Merriweather Post Pavilion is an accurate representation of both sides of the argument with very little wiggle room in between. In short, yes, it is overhyped beyond reasonable measure, however, it's also very, very good, and is without a doubt worthy of the polarizing dialogue it inspires. ..Keep Reading.. - chris gayomali Animal Collective on Tour 01/20/09 - Grand Ballroom - New York, NY 01/21/09 - Bowery Ballroom - New York, NY 01/22/09 - Metro / Smart Bar - Chicago, IL 01/23/09 - Music Box @ Fonda - Los Angeles, CA 03/24/09 - The Forum - London, UNITED KINGDOM
