From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Gizz has released another album like "Oddments" and "Gumboot Soup" that is an eclectic mix of songs with no overarching genre theme or styling. We end up with heavy metal songs similar to stuff from Infest the Rats Nest, to chill electronic songs like those from the Butterfly 3000 album, to even a couple hip-hop songs akin to something the Beastie Boys would make (that's not a comparison I expected to make on this site!) I enjoy most of the songs on the album, but the constant genre jumping makes it hard to call this album cohesive. The Dripping Tap, the first and longest song on the album, is one of the highlights of the album, a fast rocker of an environmental-protest song. Some other the other highlights of the album for me include Ambergris (a very chill song almost reminiscent of Prince), The Garden Goblin (which has hints of 80s prog in it), Presumptuous (a kind of chill rock song with hints of Santana, especially at the guitar solo), and Red Smoke (probably the most laid back song on the album). I think people will have certain songs from the album they love, but there's just so much jumping around on it that there aren't going to be a lot that love everything here. Probably worth somewhere between 3-3.5 stars.
