    I wouldn't call this album bad by any means, but similar to "Gumboot soup", there is a little something for everyone.

    Most of these tracks are obvious B-Sides to their previous batch of albums, just like they did on "Gumboot soup". Personally, I would have removed the rap tracks from this record and it would have been an 8.

    One of Gizz's best projects. This record effectively covers most things that King Gizzard has been able to create successfully in the past. From Thrash Metal to Dream Pop, this album has something to offer for everyone. In this album, they pull the best elements from their previous works (Infest the rats' nest, Sketches of Brunswick East, Butterfly 3000, etc.) as well as building on newOne of Gizz's best projects.

In this album, they pull the best elements from their previous works (Infest the rats' nest, Sketches of Brunswick East, Butterfly 3000, etc.) as well as building on new ideas. These new concepts are seen in "Sadie Sorceress" and "The Grim Reaper" where we hear Amby and Mackenzie rapping.

    Due to how well their previous work has been covered here, this should now be the new record that new Gizz fans/people wanting to get into KGLW should listen to.

    Definitely top 5 King Gizzard albums, excited to see what else they come up with!

    Not their strongest effort yet, but not their weakest either. Never been crazy about their grab-bag albums, and I wish this had a more cohesive sound, but there’s a bunch of good individual tracks on here.

    Fantastic and hypnotic album with every track. The first audition takes you by surprise in some parts. Too good! This album is a gift. Another one of those guys.

    Omnium Gatherum proves King Gizzard still have a whole lot of it left in the tank.

    Taken as a complete album experience, it’s a little too all over the place to measure up to their most focused work, and its robust length is pretty intimidating. But as a smorgasbord of strange sonic shape-shifting, it’s a pretty fun listen.

    Like a lot of the bands that inspired it, Omnium Gatherum is expansive, assorted, and at least a little self-indulgent, but that’s precisely what makes it brilliant.
