Danse Manatee is Animal Collective's second album, released in 2001. It was the first album to feature Geologist, and since the group had not created the Animal Collective name yet, it was released as "Avey Tare, Panda Bear and Geologist". It was much more collaborative in nature than Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished, and was noticeably more abstract

It was widely panned by critics for its use of harsh noise and abrasive textures. However, the band still speaks fondly of it in interviews.
