Absolutely amazing album, unlike anything I have ever heard. Will definitely find its way onto my chart.

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!

There are some highlights in here such as Sleep Drifter or Nuclear Fusion, but overall, not one of King Gizzard best albums.

Like nothing I've ever heard before - completely original and fantastic. It was a wonderful idea to include microtonal tuning in each track, and the end result certainly did not disappoint! I'd recommend giving the album a few listens and allowing yourself time to absorb it fully before rating it.

Favorite tracks: Rattlesnake, Open Water, Nuclear Fusion

Pretty aimless, but weirdly hypnotic. I enjoy it.

@sethmadsen: glad you came back for more :)

Personally, its an instant like _because_ of the non-standard tonality, but I can imagine it's a bit of an acquired taste.

Don't write this off on first listen, people! ;)
