Animal Collective are my favorite band, so my opinion was a bit skewed from the start, but hearing these songs evolve from their original live versions has been a real treat. Immediatly after hearing "Fireworks," I knew it was my new favorite song of theirs and the Studio version on "Strawberry Jam" is almost as good. This album is filled with such beautiful melodies, creative sounds and recording techniques and vocal delivery. "Reverend Green" is amazingly catchy and driving. "Winter WonderLand" is pop perfection if I've ever heard it. Put this album on headphones or see them live. These guys have a perfect mix of natural, child-like bliss and scary, unpredicatbleness to their sound that transports you to a different planet. You don't find music this good on Earth very often. If you listen with an open mind, it's hard not to fall in love with it.
