Panda Bear: Tomboy (2011)
In the end, there is only one single context for me: I either like an album or I don't. As for 'Tomboy', I absolutely don't like it. Actually I'm close to loathing it. I don't care about Noah Lennox being Animal Collective's driving force or what. The music he brings on Tomboy is utterly annoying and irritating. To my ears, it is, without doubt. I guess it's his voice. I can't bear it. His beats and tunes happen to be really good (most of the time..) but as soon as his voice comes in the spell is broken and gone for good. The only exception is maybe 'Scherezade' where Lennox's often feminin-sounding vocals perfectly fit. But my favourite part on this album is the last 1 minute or so of the track called 'Drone' ; it's a drone synth, no Lennox. Elevating, really. Otherwise Tomboy sucks, big time.
