I don't often pay too much attention to Pitchfork reviews, but I think the way they summed up this album in their best of 2019 list (#42) is perfect...

 

The thrill of 1000 gecs isn’t just the post-internet omnivorousness with which it connects its various reference points, but how profoundly dumb it is.

I know people seem to love or hate this album, and I unusually find myself in the middle.  I love their sound - it's equal parts obnoxious and addictive, and they are halfway between parody and tribute to the sounds they reference. Any time I listen I really can't tell if I'm enjoying or loathing it, as I'm likely doing both, which I think is entirely to the point. I think I mostly love that about them - this is likely going to be everyone's favourite album of the year, or the worst thing they heard this year.
