Animal Collective Compared To Brian, Again

THE MANEATER "Aren’t The Beach Boys fantastic? 'Good Vibrations' is an outstanding song, though ‘excitations’ probably isn’t a word. Brian Wilson is either the most genius or most insane songwriter that ever lived. The man wrote songs in a giant sandbox and was friends with Charles Manson. After writing Pet Sounds, however, he regained his sanity, and that’s when the music started to suffer. John Stamos was their drummer, for instance."

"However, if Brian Wilson still wrote songs in his sandbox and never severed his ties to cult leader/convicted murderer/folk singer Manson, he probably would have been a prime choice for collaboration with Animal Collective, whose new album, Feels, recalls Wilson at the height of his insanity."
