RotD: “What Would I Want? Sky” – Animal Collective

24 11 2009

Animal Collective — Indie music’s great white hope. Seriously. Pitchfork gave this song a 10. Out of 10. I shit you not. There’s no such thing as a 10. Not just for music either, in anything, in life. No 10’s. Because think about it, if you ever reached 10 on a scale, then what?

Is Pitchfork telling me this is the perfect song? Should I just pack it in? Is this it for music? How can it get better? Can I type more consecutive rhetorical questions? Seriously though, this is a life lesson for the kiddies out there — there are no 10’s. Giselle ain’t a 10. Michael Jordan can’t play basketball at a 10. Albert Einstein’s brain tops out at 9.99, not 10.

You know what they say: Nobody’s perfect. Well, there was this one guy, but we killed him a long time ago.

Yeah, we’re talking about Jesus. He was a 10. The guy made Franzia out of Ice Mountain. Maybe that’s the benchmark. Fall Be Kind EP comes out December 8th. Try not to ruin your skinny jeans thinking about it.
