ODDSAC - Finally seen it
Firstly, greetings to one and all. I've been meaning to find an Animal Collective forum for ages now, so finally got my arse into gear this weekend - mainly because I've (at long last) just watched ODDSAC. I'd say I've been a pretty avid AC fan for about 3 years now but I was slightly dubious about the whole ODDSAC concept (didn't think I'd enjoy the visuals etc.) and it was always really expensive when I looked so kept putting it off. Anyway, bought it in the end and I'm absolutely blown away with it - it's far surpassed my expectations. Musically I enjoyed 'Screens', 'Tantrum Barb' and 'What Happened' the most. 'Tantrum Barb' is such a delightful high after enduring the long psychedelic visualization sequence in 'Urban Creme', and I though 'What Happened' was an exhilarating ending. Visually, I think the opening sequence with the fire dancers, and the camp/marsh mallow & vampire scenes made me smile the most. Sorry that my first post is just me rambling about AC.. but none of my friends like them so, meh.
