  • Although I enjoy the sound that Animal Collective establishes with this track, the biggest problem I have with it is that they don’t allow the song to really take off
  • Just as with Runnin The Round Ball, the band establishes an interesting track, but just as it’s starting to get going, the track abruptly comes its close which leaves a listener completely unsatisfied in my opinion

      Throwin The Round Ball is a song by Animal Collective which appears on their second release Danse Manatee. In contrast to Runnin The Round Ball, this track has far less of a building feel to it, but it is also another instrumental.

      Rather than having a more traditional musical structure, Throwin The Round Ball strikes me as being a collection of random pieces of noise.

      Though this description may not sound incredibly


      positive, I should reassure a reader that the result actually is not bad.

      Had Animal Collective pushed this song to a dissonant extreme, the songwriting would have been completely ruined, but they went with a somewhat melodic sound throughout this track and the random sound collections surprisingly work well together.

      Despite this, the track still has a large flaw to it which is coincidentally the flaw that Runnin The Round Ball also ...

        Although I enjoy the sound that Animal Collective establishes with this track, the biggest problem I have with it is that they don’t allow the song to really take off.

        Just as with Runnin The Round Ball, the band establishes an interesting track, but just as it’s starting to get going, the track abruptly comes its close which leaves a listener completely unsatisfied in my opinion.

        Because of this, I can’t honestly

        recommend Throwin The Round Ball because I feel as if it would only be a waste of time for most listeners because the band presents an interesting sound and then fails to follow through with it.

        Unfortunately, Animal Collective are dragging out some songs like Meet The Light Child or The Living Toys while cutting more interesting songs such as Running The Round Ball or this track before they can really take off.
