King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard Albums Ranked

The most prolific and diverse band in modern rock and one of my favorite contemporary bands overall. Also check KG, it jams and funks and microtones and everything.

Eyes Like The Sky

Honestly, I can hardly remember a thing from this album which it probably the worst thing I could say about King Gizz.
15King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
12 Bar Bruise

Not bad but pretty average lo-fi rock. Can't blame them for this one though since they were just getting their feet in the water.
14King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

Hot Wax and Sleepwalker are all I really come back to. Mostly just a collection of some decent lo-fi Aussie-rock singles, but a couple are even downright annoying.
13King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Sketches of Brunswick East (w/ Mild High Club)

King Gizzard's short-lived collaboration to make some soft, jazz-inspired tunes. Pretty good album but lacks variety or interesting songwriting. The Spider and Me, Rolling Stoned, and Countdown are the standouts.
12King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Gumboot Soup

It's in the title - a soup of leftover tracks from their 5-album run in 2017. Lacks cohesion as an album but still has a few standouts like Beginner's Luck, the Last Oasis, and All is Known.

Float Along. Fill Your Lungs

The band's first attempt at the long-winded, krautrock-inspired psychedelia that would characterize their later albums. Fun tunes but only hinting at the greatness to come

Fishing For Fishies

King Gizzard's short bout with environmentally-conscious blues and blues rock. It's a good album but the song gets a bit lackluster as it goes on. Real's not Real, Boogieman Sam, and Cyboogie are my fav tracks from here.
9King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Paper Mache Dream Balloon

The band's short stint with purely acoustic instruments. Similar to Fishing for Fishies, it's good but a bit slow in that it doesn't maintain momentum all the way through the last few tracks. Sense, Bone, and Trapdoor are the standouts.
8King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

Four 10 min and 10 sec tracks that split this album into quarters(!), each representing a season. All great songs (especially The River, one of their best) but a couple of them tend to drag to reach their respective run-times.
7King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Murder Of The Universe

Their most proggy album to date, the band tackles apocalyptic, Lovecraftian themes with spoken word and aggressive instrumentals. Surprisingly catchy (Balrog!) and great flow between tracks but the spoken word does tend to obstruct the music at some points.
6King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Infest the Rats' Nest

Yet another short bout of genre-hopping has the band playing...thrash metal? A couple cuts are lacking here but the rest of the album is just great King Gizz material with Stu sounding more aggressive and the distortion and heaviness turned up a notch. Love the lyrical concept, too.
5King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Flying Microtonal Banana

The album that kicked off their 2017 album run has King Gizz's first go-around at playing around with microtones, and the rest of their usual psychedelic goodness. Rattlesnake has always been a bit overrated to me but everything else on here is great too.
4King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

I really appreciate the experimentation they're embracing with this album. Microtones, electronic funk, groovy psychedelia, and even a doom-inspired closer make this one of their most diverse albums yet. Every song here is great.
3King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Nonagon Infinity

Hard, fun, seamless, and catchy. King Gizz barrels through the runtime and doesn't waste a second. One of their most well-constructed albums featuring all the elements that give them their unique flavor as a band.
2King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
I'm In Your Mind Fuzz

Would be the band's absolute best album if not for #1 by a hair. Long krauty tunes and everything else that makes King Gizzard great but done better than the rest. Easily their album that I revisit the most and one of the best to sit all the way through. The first four tracks are their best material hands down.
1King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

Spacey, unique, cohesive, polyrhythmic, and fantastic. Every tracks flows seamlessly into the next - wonderfully paced and masterfully executed. This is the band at the absolute peak of their abilities and what made me fall in love with them.
