Laneway Festival Adelaide. Joe Hayward. Drawing upon jazz-fusion and acid rock, the album's more laid-back sound was described as "unlike anything they've released before" and as "an album more likely to get your head bobbing and hips shaking as opposed to losing footwear in a violent mosh".

On their first trip to the United States, the band gets some wind under their wing as they record their first album in the traditional way of having all the songs written and rehearsed thoroughly, and then recorded as a band in the studio.
Riddled throughout this record are tape manipulations, phase shifts, and saturations. None of this gets in the way of the music, but greatly enhances it and places it in it's own trippy fantasy world. The record starts off with a big bang, four drum stick clicks and you are immediately thrown into The Gizzards realm with the four part "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" suite. This 12 minute epic is loaded to the brim with fuzzed out harmonicas, guitar freak outs, and the powerful bellowing of "WOOOO".
The second part, "I'm Not In Your Mind" has the band stretching the jams out to dizzying levels in a middle eastern flavour. By the time the final part is rocking, we have reached a highly climactic moment in the record, as this section sounds absolutely triumphant.
