No, you don't need to get your eyes checked...

Easily their most accomplished and sonically compelling offering to date, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE's new "Merriweather Post Pavillion" LP is a trippy collection of driving sound fields colored by layers of Beach Boys vocal harmonies in the key of "Feel Flows." Strangely enough, it's also named for starchitect Frank Gehry's 1967 outdoor concert venue, one of his first major constructions. Unlike one of Gehry's buildings, however, this record is something you'll be able to live with for a long time to come.
