4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By The Chad Who Loved Me on 10 April 2006
Format: Audio CD
This compilation of the Flaming Lips covers 1984-1990. For many this is not the Flaming Lips we know and love. To be fair it is not their best work. However, anyone who likes their nineties output pre-Zaireeka should give it a try. They released four albums worth of material, much of the best stuff sounding like something similar to the heavier songs off of 'Hit to Death in the Future Head' and 'Transmissions From The Satellite Heart'.

It's a bit of a shame Amazon can't show the sleeve notes, since Wayne Coyne has written a short description of each songs and told the story of these years. He describes the quality and bizarreness better than I can.

Tracks 1 to 8 are tracks lifted from each of the albums, these are the best songs on the CD, through these songs you can chart the growing sophistication in song writing and layering of sound, by the time 'God Walks Among Us Now' appears, it is hard to differentiate them from their nineties output. 'Bag Full of Thoughts' and 'Jesus Shootin' Heroin' are fun nosy songs that go round and round. 'One Million, Billionth of a Millisecond on a Sunday Morning' is where the CD really kicks in, it's nine and a half minutes long, and packs so much stuff into it. 'Chrome Plated Suicide' is basically 'Sweet Child o' Mine' but with better lyrics and without Slash's guitar. 'Unconsciously Screamin' is one of the best songs of the bands entire career.

For Completists Only, pretty much 11 Oct. 1999
By happydogpotatohead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wayne Coyne's self-deprecating liner notes on the inner sleeve are pretty much proven true by the music on this disc. Much of it sounds like the Replacements if the Replacements had taken too much acid instead of drinking too much beer. That being said, there are some good songs on it, like "One Million Billionth Of A Millisecond..." and "God Walks Among Us Now," but largely this is the sound of a band in search of a clear identity. It's not comparable to the band's classic CDs like "Clouds Taste Metallic," "Hit to Death..." or "Soft Bulletin," but it is an interesting glance backwards. The song choice on here is remarkably poor, as well, but Coyne says in the liner notes that some of what he considers the "best" of the early Flaming Lips songs aren't included here. We could all have done without the ultra-lame cover of Led Zep's "Thank You" and the completely aimless "Michael Time To Wake Up" and "Hell's Angels Cracker Factory." In short, this shouldn't be anyone's first exposure to the Lips, but it's OK for fans who want to complete their collection. Not great...just OK.

So very cool! 8 Jun. 1999
By sparkyboy@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Flaming Lips deserve so much more than their 15 minutes of MTV/radio fame permit them. Sure, "She Don't Use Jelly" is a good song, but they are capable of so much more. This collection of Lips songs proves it. The previous review is correct. Wayne continuously rips the band as being mediocre, but I really think the material is incredible. I only wish that half of the bands that crowd the television and airwaves had half the talent or creativity of the Lips! With songs like "Jesus Shootin' Heroin", who needs pop culture icons like Dave Matthews and Trent Reznor?!? And wait until you hear 'The Soft Bulletin'!!!!!!

A great retrospective...by amateurs 17 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Flaming Lips are one of those bands you seem to either love or hate. I just happen to love them. Inside the liner note of this CD, Wayne keeps nailing it home how they are just a bunch of amateurs. I personally think they have a ton of great songs, and alot of talent to boot. Great ideas never stop with these guys. This CD is awesome and I haven't been able to stop listening to it...the songs just get into your brain and nothing gets them out short of an icepick up the nose (do not try that at home!) If you are a new Lips fan and don't know what to get, this is a great retrospective of their early stuff. For the established Lips fan, this offers alot of cool rarities...by it now!

Early Lips remind me of why I love them 14 Dec. 2003
By E. Bartoszak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a collection of older stuff, that I went back to, after falling in love with "Yoshimi", "Soft Bulletin", and "Clouds...".
It's definitely more raw, more unrefined, but I can still spot the parts of the Lips that made me a fan.
Highly recommended for any beginner to the Lips,(...)

definitely the lest painful way to explore the early lips 17 Mar. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album is definitely the best way to experience the early flaming lips as their full-length albums from the early career are a bit on the rough side...THe liner notes are also great, and basically reiterate what I just wrote.
