Panda Bear "Person Pitch" receives 9.4!!!

So Pitchfork gave Panda Bear "Person Pitch" a very well deserved rating of 9.4. Panda Bear (and his other Animal pals...including Grizzly Bear ;-) ) has been one of the few artists trying and succeeding at pushing musical boundaries. And like anything by fellow boundary-pushers Radiohead, this album just keeps getting better & better. I can't say for sure if this will be my album of the year, but it's shaping up that way so far. I can't recommend this album enough.
