Panda Bear: "Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper".


Yawn.

But not necessarily because it's awful (which it is); Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is so intellectually impotent and sonically barren, it sets one's mind adrift amidst the clouds, which at once become makeshift trampolines that ping-pong the astral body to and fro, giggling with glee like a tickled toddler. The music contained within the record's fifty-one minute span could be adequately described as some surferesque attempt at marrying Surf's Up with New Age Of Earth, for reasons unknown or unknowable.

However, maybe that's the whole point - in which case, even the concept itself is awful. Should something be said of PB meeting the grim reaper? Does this offering constitute Noah's dying dirge? Is death totally into experimental muzak? Are any of these questions even worth pondering?

Cue the nightmares.
