Noah Benjamin Lennox is known as the Co-founding member of the band Animal Collective and as the solo artist Panda Bear. Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper is his fifth solo album.

Compared to his previous releases Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper is perhaps his most assessable work to date. I would describe the music as electronic with melty vocals, psychedelic – imagine the Beach Boys on some heavy acid. The album truly shines when it isn't trying to be too experimental. Sometimes it can just be really out there. The record is bizarre, intoxicating, sometimes beautiful and always dreamlike. Overall it's definitely something you need to be in the mood for. Standout tracks include "Mr Noah", "Butcher Baker Candlestick Maker", "Boys Latin", "Come To Your Senses", "Tropic Of Cancer" and "Principe Real".
