3.5 greatlecolumbus | May 4th 19

I don't know how I was able to put up with the production quality of the metal tracks on here.
There's so many interesting ideas on here and this music is so dense that it DEMANDS higher
fidelity. It frustrates me in the same way Ulver's Nattens Madgrial does - any sense of atmosphere
gained by an oppressive, unclean recording is overshadowed by a feeling that these incredibly
interesting songs just aren't been served by their recording quality. Considering the financial
cost of recording music as dense and detailed as Kayo Dot's, it's understandable why they went
with this route but thank god they crowdfunded for Hubardo.

4.5 superbXenophanes EMERITUS | January 4th 12

The addition of metal influences is certainly welcome, but as tradition, Kayo Dot can't make a consistent album to save their lives, even with a 32 minute runtime.

3.5 greatYazz_Flute | January 4th 12

As short and concise as Kayo Dot have ever sounded. Still, at roughly 32 minutes in length, Gamma Knife is very aesthetically dense. The chaotic pseudo-symphonic rumblings of Driver's latest projects are present, but his older "metal" atmosphere has returned. The middle trio features a twist of black metal peeking through the cacophony of wooded instruments. Very solid for sure.

Damn why is it so short ? Would have 4'd it if the runtime was decent. 3.6

3.5 greatEasterInTheBatcave | December 20th 15

Kayo Dot go black metal (in their own way), but sadly, this album doesn't live up to the awesomeness that statement implies. The production on the three middle songs is horrible, and, even worse, the songs themselves are boring. I do like opener "Lethe", though, and the closing track is interesting.

0.0 Lambda | August 12th 14

Not my cup of tea. The production on the three middle songs just sounds bad (and not in a good, lo-fi manner) and the fact that the songs don't seem to go anywhere doesn't help matters. I do like opener "Lethe", though, and the closing track is interesting. 2.3

Kayo Dot are still eclectic and bizarre as ever, but thanks to the reappearance of metal and a more concise, half-hour tracklist, Gamma Knife ends up as another successful Toby Driver album.

3.0 goodGnarlyShillelagh EMERITUS | January 9th 12

I mean I doubt I'll listen to this more than twice after January is over and there's more music out...

Bump

4.0 excellentbrcry | January 4th 12

I've listened to it three times so far, and i love it more each time. The production is far from perfect but that's not a deal breaker.

Bump

4.0 excellentFadedSun | January 4th 12

Initial impressions are that this is awesome, although the recording sounds a little muddy at times.
