From Stereogum’s review of Centipede Hz, by Animal Collective. I am afraid I have rejected that possibility.
But I did try and be fair in the Guardian review of it: I was probably a bit generous TBH. I guess most Guardian readers either know exhaustively who they are or have no idea at all, which made the balance between exposition and criticism more annoying than usual.
Leaving aside Tom’s characteristically fine review, we can all agree the quoted sentiment is ridiculous/pointless, right?
“we need to accept the possibility of a record so excellent no people can list it yet”
1. Did we just decide that Animal Collective is above criticism? Is that what happened here?
2. Is this the Pitchfork review of Kid A for our generation?
