It is just so inventive, irreverent, so ridiculously fun. There are few things I like better than seeing an artist set out to be radically themselves, and achieve it perfectly.

This is the soundtrack to Gen Z kids with "trauma" and ADHD engaging in pretty crime while vaping. 1/5.

I have no idea what I just listened to but I LOVED it. It’s pure chaos and I’m here for it. I did NOT expect to like this as much as I did. I’m questioning everything I know. Lyrically, it’s pedestrian; amateur at best. But that’s not the point. It’s anarchy in 28 minutes. Almost mocking every aspect of pop to borderline parody levels. 4.5/5 but rounding to 5. 5 stars for this is insanity. I’m embarrassed but also don’t care. I don’t even know who I am anymore. Do I think it’s as good as Sgt. Pepper? No. Not even close. But i just can’t give this a 4 as I enjoyed it way more than most 4 stars I give out. This is coming from an older Millennial (Xennial) who gave pretty much every 70s rock and folk album 5 stars.

100 gec's particular brand of hyper pop is more refined on their sophomore release. Still present is the frenetic and seemingly nonsensical mish mash of genres but there's more of a sense of direction here. They employ ska, metal, electronic, and hard rock elements to create something truly unique. I absolutely see why people don't like this band, but for me, they elevate these seemingly disparate sounds and lyrics to art worthy of examination and criticism.

I was a big fan of 1,000 gecs for its new, everything-at-the-wall take on hyperpop. The joke is much less funny the second time around, though – there are some shining moments, samples, and memories here for sure, but the middle section feels underbaked and tired, almost as if the band is grasping at ideas. There's barely enough to support a scant 26 minutes, and given the time it took to come out I wonder how long the band can keep up the jest.

This I feel pretty confident as a very recent entry, as they are definitively at the bleeding edge of a newer genre. And it is dope as hell, which helps obviously.

I NEVER give an album I've heard heard of a perfect 5/5 score. I won't for this one either, but damn I am close! I REALLY enjoyed this one. At fifty-seven years of age, I always thought I'd mellow out.... but, I want to hear more from this band and if the rest is similar to this one - I'll be really happy! Seven Fifty-seven I may never go to heaven! But, at least I got to hear this before I die... Standouts: Mememe, Hollywood Baby, 757, Billy Knows Jamie, One Million Dollars.... ever song! All great. 4.75

Fun, frantic, intense, and feels *new*. The list definitely needs something like this on it.

I randomly heard one of their songs on the radio the other day and piqued my interest - glad this popped up. Didn't disappoint. For a freshman album - self released, it awesome!

Amiable frenetic pop with all modern trimmings. The reviews led me to expect something a little more over the top. The dopiness of some of the lyrics detracted from the overall quality for me.

This is... Something. Fast paced, a lot of autotune, some good songs, some I liked less

The earlier tracks are better exemplars. And the gecs are producers par excellence; 10,000 is closer to a sizzle reel than an album in length and breadth. Not here does wider genre play translate to a superior sophomore effort.

Why is this even considered worth putting on this list… Here today, gone tomorrow.

A mishmash of genres drenched in layers of irony. Undoubtedly a unique blend, but it comes across like the sonic equivalent of a novelty mountain dew flavor. Won't be part of my regular rotation, but I have no doubt they will be included in future editions of the book. My favorite track was "One Million Dollars," which was more sample based. If the whole album was more of a collage like that, I'd be on board. But when they sing it just kind of makes me wince, especially when auto-tuned - regardless of whether that was an ironic aesthetic choice or not.

I think I'm getting too old to still 'get' this.

Good electronic beat with vocals that seem intentionally diffuse. It caught my attention that they have a slight eighties feeling, but suddenly it turns into very noisy or unclear music... it's a strange mashup of tracks that doesn't quite define itself.

Only good thing about this album was how short it was. And the song about the frog was sort of cute, but that's not enough to redeem this one. 1 star.

It was not good. It was short that's about it. A lot of voice modulators. I did not care for it. It certainly did not need to be recommended to be included on this list.
