Deerhoof: Friend Opportunity (4.5/5)

#6 out of 10
Non-Metal Album of 2007

Year: 2007
Label: Kill Rock Stars
Genre: Experimental Pop
TRT: 36:36

This band makes me so happy. It's hard for me to imagine anyone listening to them and not feeling better about themselves and the world in general. With odd lyrics, adorably cute vocals, and music so quirky it'll make you laugh, it's impossible to listen to them without smiling at least a couple times, and the album closer Look Away is the perfect anchor to reality, showing a more serious side of the band. I'd have to say that this is their best record to date.
