Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

This week was bookended by a pair of songs — Animal Collective’s “Today’s Supernatural” and Grizzly Bear’s “Yet Again” — that come from two of our most anticipated albums of the year. Are you so excited? You guys seem pretty excited about them. I am too. Which do love more? Who would win in a fight, Ed Droste or Avey Tare? After you place your bets, check out this week’s highest and lowest rated comments of the week, as voted on by you, below. (Also, you have a few more hours to stream all of Yeasayer’s Fragrant World here before the clips get scraped from YouTube. So get on that if you haven’t yet.)
