AllMusic Review by

Introducing Gorky's Zygotic Mynci compiles highlights from the Welsh band's first two U.K. albums, plus their singles and EPs for the Ankst record label. While it might not be an official album, it is an excellent introduction to Gorky's wild, sunny eclecticism, featuring everything from warped art pop to homages to the Soft Machine's Kevin Ayers. What stops the music from becoming too precious is the group's surprising facility for pop hooks and their cheerful sense of humor -- it might be bizarre music, but it is never alienating.
