All Animal Collective Ranked

I have an odd(sac) tradition of jamming a LOT of Animal Collective in November. Here we are again. They're so bizarre and I love them so much. This is my whatever ranking of everything I found I was worthy of ranking in their wild discography. I've included their more well-known EPs and singles, but again, this just me. EDIT: DAMMIT - The list is in reverse order, so #1 is my bottom and #18 is my favorite. Ugh
1Animal Collective
Danse Manatee

#18 -dissonant, brash, occasionally delicious
2Animal Collective
Prospect Hummer

#17 - gorgeous, meandering, lower than it probably actually is
3Animal Collective
Campfire Songs

#16 - also gorgeous, ethereal, one of their most "experiential" listens
4Animal Collective

#15 - the fat off of Feels. Same feels, more dissonant approach
5Animal Collective

#14 - an aggressive foray into sound-effects indie, with very incidentally pretty moments scattered
6Animal Collective
Bridge to Quiet

#13 - a deceptively catchy batch of droners
7Animal Collective
Tangerine Reef

#12 - a deceptively beautiful batch of droners
8Animal Collective
Painting With

#11 - tried to punch out my own ears when it first came out, realizing they were just having a sloppy, glossy good time
9Animal Collective

#10 - hard to believe that maybe the 2 best songs from the Centipede Hz sessions didn't make it onto Centipede Hz
10Animal Collective
Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished

#9 - "perfect percussion" sounds different to everyone, but there are cathartic, gorgeous songs bolstering this surprisingly epic first offering
11Animal Collective
Water Curses

#8 - these songs are just about as sticky sweet as their A-side brethren on Strawberry Jam
12Animal Collective
Centipede Hz

#7 - like a tropical punk-rock record that got smashed into an industrialized grinder - some of their most meh stuff mixed with some of their most awesome
13Animal Collective
Time Skiffs

#6 - a "return to form" if you thought they ever lost it - admittedly safe, beautiful and diverse throwback album
14Animal Collective
Sung Tongs

#5 - the grower of all growers - always amazing that this sounds like way more than just 2 dudes banging acoustic guitars, drums, and vocals
15Animal Collective
Fall Be Kind

#4 - Merriweather's autumnal little brother sometimes surpasses it's big bro, just an EP though
16Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

#3 - you know - this album kicks arse
17Animal Collective

#2 - these last three don't need much introduction, hence my Merriweather half-assery - this album makes you feel like you're a part of the actual Earth
18Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

#1 - one of my all-time favorite albums - a gorgeously bizarre approach to myriad styles of indie-pop that all pop
