The album has been held notable for the originality yet entertaining quality of the music witch is claimed to be diverse but with a strong concept and has been associated with the term "genuine strangeness". GP!'s live band features Róbert Reynisson (Múm, Ólöf Arnalds, Borko) guitar , Davíð Þor Jónsson (Mugison, Flís, Benni Hemm Hemm) keyboards, Valdimar Kolbeinn Sigurjónsson (Flís, Egill Sæbjornsson), Matthías Hemstock (Johann Johannson, Tómas R. Einarsson) drums. This lineup of interesting musical forces has made audiences astonished by their life performance of GP!'s Ologies.
