Oddments is more a mixture of the garage and psychedelic rock that the band had been playing across their prior albums.
The opener features keys reminiscent of late 60s psych rock like The Doors or The Zombies, which works quite well.
Stressin, one of the most faded and lofi tracks on the album, shows a more lyrical and comfortable side of the band that becomes more apparent as the album progresses. Vegemite is a fun, catchy, and upbeat song carried by a prominent yet simple drum line. It's Got ... read more

This is the album where most people start to pay attention. Regarded by some (fairly so) as their best album, I'm in Your Mind Fuzz is a return to the energetic sounds of Willoughby's Beach and 12 Bar Bruise but way more psych sounding.
The first four tracks are perhaps the band's best run. Electrifying riffs, powerful drums, and a steady, unifying bassline bring these tracks together seamlessly. Cellophane, one of their best songs and my favorite on the album, is the third track in this four ... read more

Other than that, nothing really engages or keeps my attention on the album until the closer Float Along - Fill Your Lungs. It's a great closer, featuring lovely sitar and a relaxing groove.

To begin with, I'm not really a fan of narrative or spoken word albums like this to begin with, so I was a little apprehensive about even listening to it in the first place. However, for them to do something like this on their sophomore album takes some balls, which I can't help but respect. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything about this album interesting. The instrumentation was bland, and tanked in the second half. The narrative hardly kept my attention, I much preferred to listen to the ... read more

ompared to their "debut" EP Willoughby's Beach, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard turn up the noise and include a wider variety of genres and styles, getting more into psychedelic, and at times, punk sounds. The longer album loses some of the energy present on the EP, which is disappointing considering how strong the first two tracks are. Elbow is garage rock perfection, and Muckraker compliments its energy and mood very well. The addition of keys was a nice touch.
The title track ... read more
