FILTER Grade: 82%

Plants and Animals

With La La Land, Montreal’s Plants and Animals smooth out the royal sensations of 2008’s sprawling Parc Avenue, dialing down the bombast and style workouts in favor of something more closely resembling their bare-knuckle live shows. The trio is more comfortable here with intimate moments and the songs are more organic. Although not without its missteps (“Future from the ’80s” brought to you by vocoder choruses), La La Land finds the plateaus to be nearly as interesting as the peaks. MARTY GARNER
