I don't understand how you can say they sound like "utter shit". That's usually reserved for the usual suspects such as Brokencyde, Millionares (or, in my case, Saves The Day and Underoath). That being said, Animal Collective's latest is a really pretty, abstract canvas of sorta psychedelic enjoyable "indie pop". I don't understand how someone can consider it "unlistenable." Sure, you may not ENJOY it, but it's not far fetched that people really like it.
