Animal Collective Ranked Bigly

Tryna avoid controversy with this one. Also not counting Tangerine Reef since it's like an audiovisual soundtrack or whatever the fuck
1Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

Fun, arty indie pop with some neo-psych in there for flavor. Actually-good hooks, beautiful production, just solid all-around. 8/10, might even be an 8.5 who knows
2Animal Collective

Starts and ends extremely strong, meanders a bit in the middle. 7.5/10
3Animal Collective
Centipede Hz

Sonically busy, electronic-leaning AnCo is good AnCo. Not especially memorable but it's really fun while its on. 7.5/10
4Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

Has some very cool moments and overall it's more engaged than much of their preceding work, but no individual songs really grab me the way the best stuff on Feels does, and the sonic palette isn't quite as interesting as it is on Centipede Hz. 7/10
5Animal Collective
Painting With

Decent indie pop, no more and no less. Not as lush or catchy as MPP and more stripped-down than Centipede, but I still wouldn't make a stink if someone threw it on the aux. 6.5/10
6Animal Collective
Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished

Lots of people seem to think all the electronic squiggles and static make the indie-folk tunes underneath it all less plain-jane than they would be otherwise. I am not one of those people. Eh, "Chocolate Girl" is pretty good at least. 6/10, leaning towards a 6.5
7Animal Collective

I don't really care for AnCo's excursions into ambient music, but this still manages some interesting textures and compelling sonic contrast. 6/10 but I feel like it could maybe grow from there?
8Animal Collective
Sung Tongs

a bunch of half-written song fragments played on repeat ad nauseum. Also one of Avey Tare's less likable vocal performances. 5/10
9Animal Collective
Danse Manatee

Basically all the most directionless and dull parts of STGSTV collected into an interminable slew of nonsense. 3.5/10
10Animal Collective
Campfire Songs

Hey aspiring musicians please do not attempt to play ambient music on an acoustic guitar because it gets extremely grating extremely fast. 2.5/10
