But they are better WITH Deakin.
Spirit They're Gone... is a really good album, and that's just Panda and Avey. Strawberry Jam is their best album (imo), and that's all four. I don't know what the fuck Geologist does other than have the best nickname.

'Sung Tongs' was just Avey and Panda, too. As far as I can tell, though, Geologist is more responsible for the current Animal Collective sound than any of the other band members. What he 'does' is build the samples and loops that lend all their new material it's bombast.
If Animal Collective were Roxy Music, Geologist would be Brian Eno.
