This is the only FI album I've heard but I really liked it. They have a new one coming out soon I think.
>Animal Collective - MPP
surprising pick. I feel like the obvious pick for AC would have to be Painting With since just about everyone agrees on that being a letdown. but I'm not sure how CHz will be remembered either, it seems to neither be disliked or liked by the general consensus. It really works for me, but it took a lot time for me to get my head around it. They seem to be the kind of band where their fans can't agree on which records are their best and worst.
>Sun Kil Moon - Benji
Never listened to Sun Kil Moon, but I saw this album getting praised out the ass when it came out. I saw it described as a lyric-driven singer-songwriter kind of album and I'm not usually into that sort of thing so I passed on checking it out.
