    Any Animal Collective/Panda Bear/Avey Tare/etc. fans here? My friend introduced me to AC around 2005 with "Winter's Love," which remains one of my favorite songs they've recorded. Over the years they've experimented a lot, avoiding making the same album twice all while retaining their sound. I've really come to love their music, as well as Panda Bear's solo career. I know less about the solo careers of the other members, though I've listened to a few of Avey's solo albums and liked them.

    Some favorites:

    I dropped acid and saw them live this year in chicago. Alvin Row was incredible

    Deakin just released his first solo project and it is a really nice chill record that didn't disappoint me

    I don't think it ever got better than
    their first release.

    Though I love their collaboration
    with Vashti Bunyan

    I think the Fall Be Kind EP is up there as one of their best releases

    Really late on this, but yeah, I listened to Deakin's album a couple of months ago and was impressed. People in the comments sections of AC videos have been ragging on poor Deakin for a long time because of how long it's taken him, and how rambling the road to get there had been, but it turned out great in the end.

    Person Pitch is still one of the best albums of the last ten years.

    Don't like much of the AC catalogue though, sounds like the music of people learning to make music.

    Big fan, although I definitely have to be in a certain mood. My personal favorites are Sung Tongs and Panda's Person Pitch. Avey's Spirit They're Gone... can be a good listen too, again if my ears are in the mood. The first few Animal Collective albums aren't worth it, and lately I think they've been a bit lost too. But I really like that they just push on with whatever has grabbed their attention, rather than taking the easy route and churning out another "my girls" style single every couple of years.

    I have a couple music critic pals who just can't stand the band, which continues to surprise me. You can foam at the mouth about stuff like Lightning Bolt or Faith No More but dismiss Animal Collective without really listening to their stuff?
