    Its seamless collection of earworm melodies and heady grooves make for a pretty compelling argument that it was well worth the wait.

    Though motorik beats carry much of the set and there are prog and sci-fi-metal elements, Changes throws back to tracks like "Ambergris" and "Kepler-22b" in its tapping of soul, disco amd R&B, styled along both classic and modern lines. [Dec 2022, p.18]

    Changes is the most subdued and modest record of the Gizzard’s October harvest.

    King Gizzard are never less than compelling and even when their concepts are modest, they deliver a final product that's psychedelic pop/rock/funk/soul/prog/what have you at it's very best.

    Changes isn't the most complex album King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have ever made, but it's been gestating in the backs of the member's minds for years, and feels oddly representative of everything they do well. Whether you're a true Gizz-head or just dipping your toes into their psychedelic swamp for the first time, it's worth a listen.

    The result borders on easy listening with a yacht-pop vibe, before the psychedelic starbursts come out to play. [Nov 2022, p.75]

    Iconic Super Album. Absolutely love this album. So great to listen to while creating art! Opener Change is amazing and builds into anIconic Super Album. Absolutely love this album. So great to listen to while creating art! Opener Change is amazing and builds into an electrifying crescendo! Hate Dancin gets better with each listen, reminds me of Michael Jackson. Astroturf is amazing with a gnarly flute solo. Gondii, Exploding Suns and the final track all form a beautiful ending. Gondii is incredible and reminds me of Scott Weiland. Love it Full Review »
