this is sheer brilliance.
a singer/moog player, bass guitar player and a drum/percussion player. with elements of harmonica and organ, nothing sounds quite like it. original and not one song sounds alike. not to everybodys tastes, but this is one of the best set of songs i have ever heard, and with jack white at the production helm, this album is perfect in every way possible. you wont get a better album(ep). thats a promise.
my favourite song is 'h is o' but the rest are equally sublime.
a music lovers must have item.

Whirlwind Heat: Flamingo Honey (Dim Mak) 14 Nov. 2005
By Young Music Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Experiments with music has always been kind of a saddening idea in music, because it means goodbye to the old sound and the way you love it. But sometimes, an experiment can just be a self-testing, which was why it was always in Whirlwind Heat's nature. It was also the reason little amount of people who like music take them as seriously. Only Whirlwind heat would name all of their songs after colors, and only them would they write 10 songs in 10 minutes. Quite a feat, ain't it? It's a lot better than getting short 30 second clips in stores, ain't it? Aye ca-friggin-ramba. Think of it as an EP where you are listening to clips of what is to come with another album. That is what I love to do. "The Bone" starts off kind of 80's New Wave-like which, to tell you the truth, is a shame to lose in 1 minute.

After "The Bone" comes the wild and frantic "Meat Packers". If there is ever a reason to buy this album, "Meat Packers", despite it being kind of messy, it keeps time conscious. "Lazy Morning" is one of the best pieces because it sounds like an actual morning song made from electrical piano. And to try and capture an entire day in 1 minute is kind of difficult.

The thing you have to love about this album is that this is one of the albums that is very fun to listen to and fun to experiment on your own. And it also may be pointless, but so is writing 69 songs about love (Magnetic Fields). So that you won't be able o say it is a total waste of your time, Flamingo Honey isn't a total waste of your money. But a simple follow to a command to try their talents and their hand at originality again. Just don't expect it to change your life, as much as it could broaden it with ideas.

Ratting: 6/10
A Whirlwind of Music 12 April 2013
By Jared J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a fantastic album by Whirlwind Heat. Whirlwind Heat take their name from a Sonic Youth album and although influenced by Sonic Youth they create a sound-scape that transcends many more genre's. Whirlwind heat do this with just keyboard, vocals, bass and drums. Flamingo Honey is the gem in their catalogue and shows the extent of Whirlwind Heat's musical abilities and the extent of their experimentalism in just 10 songs each tracking in at about one minute, and not one minute too short or too long. This album is heavy, hypnotic and leaves you begging for more. This is a classic that has no counterparts. The vinyl 10" edition features a hand etching on the b-side and is well worth the purchase if found! 10/10. Think Beck + Sonic Youth + Jack White.
Just enough time to pull out. 13 July 2006
By Philip K. Harrold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first found this, I was super excited. I haden't heard any material from the Heat since Do Rabbits Wonder, which absolutly rocks. My initial reaction to the first song was, "Wow, they really... grew up." But still in a fun way. 60 seconds later, it was the Whirlwind Heat I was used to. The sheer find of the album at a Virgin Megastore kind of hid the fact that it was, in fact, an EP with ten one-minute songs.

It's definately a more diverse effort than their first release. If you're a fan of sporadic changes of all kind mixed with the craziest Moog fest you've ever heard, this is definatly a winner.

Flamingo Honey = Better than everything. 27 Aug. 2004
By matt sturgess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whirlwind Heat have improved upon the potential that "do rabbits wonder?" had, and have made some of the best music since...forever. Each song stops at or around 1 minute, and sound fresh and energetic. the pleasant start of the album, "the bone", glides along until brutally transitioning into "meat packers", and never stops pummeling you until the lovely closer, "lazy morning". david, brad and steve are having the time of their lives, and it shows.
