Trying to convince people who make statements like womp just made that there is something to Animal Collective that they're just missing is never going to work. I know there are lots of people who just don't enjoy what they do; having met womp, I'd say it's a safe bet that he's one of them.
Listen to "Chocolate Girl" three times, Campfire Songs in reverse order, and then "Iko Ovo" through your car stereo, and finally Fall Be Kind with a dog in your lap...then you will really get Animal Collective.
You can't just go buy any album. It's scientific. You gotta buy Strawberry Jam. It's the departure point. Listen to it every night around dusk for about a month. Then buy Sung Tongs, then I want you to steal a car, get in it, and drive west. Play the album full blast. When the album ends, get out, and get into a fight. Then get back into the car, then come back and meet me in Columbia, Maryland. I will let you into the most prestigious amphitheater of all time... the Meriweather Post Pavilion.
Then... you're gonna be an Animal Collective fan, man.
