Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.1/100, a mean average of 78.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.7.

This album is infectious and a pure pleasure to listen to from start to finnish.

The distorted guitars, vocals, harmonica, synthesizers and amazing turkish instruments are a great fit for the electric post-apocalyspe themed album with a microtonal twist.

This album is not as progressive as Polygondwanaland, or as frantic and energetic as Nonagon Infinity. But it does stick to the same core King Gizzard principles and sounds. There’s energy, it is free flowing from song to song and it is almost hypnotic in its robotic nature. A great listen throughout.

The originality and uniqueness on display is fantastic with this album sounding completely new to anything I have ever heard before. The way that the group create completely different soundscapes on each record amazes me and makes every album of theirs worth a listen. Songs like Rattlesnake and Sleep Drifter really demonstrate the quality of the record and show how complex and multi-layered the group can be. The little nuances as well that you hear with multiple listens really add to the record as it makes it more fun to listen to the album again and just makes the music sonically pleasing. However, it can sound a little too wild at times but that becomes part of the charm after you listen to it a lot. Overall, another experimental and extremely enjoyable release from a group who consistently make great music.

Amon dull? Hopefully young people will get to Neu and Amon Duul through these guys and realize this is pretty banal retro rock.

Another beautiful concept from the Psych Rock geniuses. The addition of microtones feels so incredibly natural in their already winning formula, whilst the subtle mystery and darkness within the instrumentation creates a stunning atmosphere. Definitely their best album to date.

I love this album. I was obsessed with King Gizzard for a while and this was the only album I could get my hands on at the time. It sat in my car for a good month and was the only thing I listened to. The microtonality might be hard to get used to at first, but give it a chance, it will blow your mind. Maybe... no guarantees. Billabong Valley and Open Water are two of my favorites and Nuclear Fusion is one of the band's best songs.

First King Gizzard album I've listened to. Although not entirely my cup of tea I respect the talent at work. Definitely one of the more unique, fascinating and weird listening experiences I've had in a while. Absolutely will listen to more of these guys!
