This is a vibe album, as most King Gizzard albums are. In the same way that some movies are vibe movies: your enjoyment will largely depend on the extent to which you can vibe with it. And I can vibe with K.G.
They dragged out their microtonal instruments again, and they definitely experiment to get some interesting tunes out of them. This might be a sequel to their 2017 album Flying Microtonal Banana, it's definitely not a redo. The band has clearly evolved in the 3½ years (and 6 studio albums) since then.
What I especially love is the sheer fun that shines through their music. Some songs even sound like they started out as jokes, before they got turned into well-produced songs. On top of that, the microtonality adds a lot of flavour to the music, without making it too hard to listen to.
