Animal Collective are a special collective. They are not like anybody else. They are unique. Their music is blisfully complex and requires deep aural development. Their music is mostly an introspective jamboree of distorted samples and incomprehensible lyrics fighting reality inducing bass and percussion.

The date of this show coincided with the UK release of the latest Animal collective album "Merriweather Post Pavillion". The night's set list was heavily influenced by this album as was expected. The lawlessness of the internet made it plausbile that nearly everybody at the show had already listened to this album several times over. So, with everybody knowing what to expect. Animal Collective announced themsleves and began.

Most of the show was indeed given over to tracks from the latest album, highlights including "brothersport", "summertime clothes", and "my girls". In truth it was a mixed result. The new songs did not impress as much as their studio recorded counterparts, perhaps the band hasn't played the new material live on enough occasions yet, however, another internet leak late last year contained live versions of all songs from the then upcoming album, those versions were far superior to what was played on that Monday night at Koko.

The band could have redeemed themselves by playing their more accomplished songs from previous albums, particularly "reverend green" or "peacebone", however, "chores" was the only stand out song selected from the back catalogue.

Overall, the night could have been better, it fell short of their previous show at Koko in May last year. However, there were still enough highlights to make it worth the ever increasing ticket price.
