CRITIC REVIEWS

85
The Line of Best Fit

At its best, the album is all at once loud, ethereal, and haunting - as if being violently jolted awake from a lucid dream you can’t quite remember.

Exclaim!

On Gamel, OOIOO praise the traditional while eschewing the benign to create a truly original rhythmic screed.

Spin

Yoshimi and her band of misfits have flawlessly constructed and posited every sound on Gamel—of which there is a glorious wad—with dazzling precision.

72
Pitchfork

Like the group's best work, it takes a number of heady out-rock ideas and lines them up into a fairly easy to digest mixtape.

70
Drowned in Sound

Initially overwhelming, Gamel is a gloriously bonkers concoction of flavours that turns out to be extremely delicious indeed.

AllMusic

Gamel is a frenzied and ecstatic experience, and one that ends up being brilliant in its bizarre combinations of sounds and ideas.

Consequence of Sound

That droning, metallic ping could be a bit taxing to some listeners over the course of an entire album. It also occasionally falls from a prominent role, the usual OOIOO formula overpowering.
