The Flaming Lips' second major release of the year, coming less than 6 months after The Terror see the band in a far more optimistic mood. Peace Sword is an EP as opposed to an album nevertheless it has a running time of over 35 minutes, which is longer than some albums. The six tracks contained here are all excellent, and some are up there with The Flaming Lips' classics.

Being a long term fan of The Flaming Lips I was always going to buy this, and indeed did on the day it became available. The sound is a progression from The Terror and this is a good thing as the direction The Flaming Lips have been heading in in recent years may have lost those who came aboard circa Yoshimi but has seen the band grow artistically and become one of the most pioneering bands in the history of music, those who choose to give up on The Flaming Lips after Embryonic have missed out on some of the best new music of recent years. Unlike their output of 2011/2012, which produced a few gems though quite a bit of chaff, 2013 has seen The Flaming Lips put out two collections of some of their strongest material, indeed with their recent live shows highlighting The Terror it's easy to see how happy the band themselves are of their most recent work.

Opening up with the Theme to the motion picture Ender's Game, Peace Sword (Open Your Heart) is an uplifting piece of sci-chedelica with The Flaming Lips exploring some of the themes of the movie which has to be one of the best theme songs to a movie to be released in a long time, which also works as a song all by itself.

This is back a bit to the Flaming Lips sound of Yoshimi, mixed with the sound scape sounds of The Terror. It has moments of greatness with lush happy/sad melodies and some trippy sounds generated by modern technology, but for me the production comes across as if to make it sound like the speakers are faulty, so you do not get clarity of the components making up the overall sound you hear, even worse on a ipod. In summary not bad at all, I just wish the production was clearer and then maybe I would have enjoyed it more.

Wonderful return to form, and as a 6 track mini album easy to accommodate listening-through in one sitting. Pop it on, turn it up, close your eyes and let it swamp you. The vinyl is superb, great quality and packaging (if a little difficult to read given the closeness of the colour tones employed. Ultimately of little importance). Also, you get a free CD inside. Well worth it. Go on, treat yourself!
