By Mr
Format:Audio CD
A quick glance at the Average Customer review score for this will tell you everything you already need to know, I'm sure. But having only recently experienced Zaireeka, I feel it's necessary to show sme appreciation (even if it is the form of a little-read Amazon review).
I bought this album after a LONG deliberation period. I've always wanted it, owning the two most recent Lips' albums and the earlier 'Hit To Death In The Future Head' (also brilliant). But this, in my opinion, is their finest work and you'd be missing out not to give it a whirl.
It's true when they say that the album will change with every listen. Whole songs differ depending on where you sit, how loud stereos are and how close you synched them (which, I might add, Wayne Coyne acknowledges that certain songs are designed to go out). On our first play through, the players ended up about 4 seconds apart, but this was just enough to give off a fantastic reverb that shot around our heads like crazy. Melodies harmonise with each other across the space, echoes are sometimes heard before you even hear their originator and crescendos pulse around in three part drum solos.
Quite simply, this was a very, very cool experience that is specifically designed to pull friends and fans together bring their CD players around and sit in awe.
I wonder what TWO copies on the go would sound like...

5.0 out of 5 stars majestic 19 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
Unbelievable! The majesty of the Flaming Lips coming from 8 directions at once. Spark that j sit back and be amazed. Honestly, I have heard music so beautiful it made me cry before but I'd never heard anything so beautiful it made laugh.
A bit tricky with just me and my mate trying to start these tracks at the right time but it doesn't even matter that much. Basically you seem to have two CDs that try to play the tune generally and two CDs of samples and sound effects that fade in and out and merge with each other.
One great thing about this album is that you will hear something and go "Whoa! Turn that CD up" then try to figure out which stereo it's coming from and you can mix it to your ideal, listen to what you want to listen to. The ingenious thing is that this record naturally ends up loud because you turn one CD up, not the other 3 down, and as the records progresses you end up having turned them all up.
The songs are fantastic too, especially 25000 Ft of Despair (I think that's what it's called)...just wait for that aeroplane sound to shoot across the room from all the speakers.
It's time for lunch now so I'm gonna leave this here but I could talk about this record all day.
I know some people will complain about not being able to play it for lack of CD players... or hands but that makes it more special. Get together with your friends and you'll never tire of it... just cos you won't get to hear it that often.
This is real innovation - the Lips should be worshipped as deities or something. Everyone should know about this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars flaming eureka! 29 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
after many hundreds (thousands?) of hours listening to the following 3 lips albums i decided to purchase this. having 4 cds is one thing. creating the "perfect" combination of sound/volume/position of high-fi is defeating the point and not as such relevant the humour of this 4 cd set is overriding and befitting with such an audacious experiment. tunes are tangibly present but are slightly formless with freaky sounds fighting in the mix. all kinds of bizarre juxtapositions in the music emerging at disquieting levels. but you don't need drugs for this. that would actually dull the experiment. the music is near if not matching the follow up "Soft Bulletin" but obviously sounding designed for this aural/out there "sensorama" experience.

to single out a personal highlight the clashing drum solos on track 7 (just bought it- can't find the track listing) alternately competing in furious but haphazard fashion from one side of the room on the state of the art system and the old rusty but trusty boom box from the other was riveting and memorable.

the experience is subjective. most people will have at least 2 cd players.i used my dvd player for one track. and i never guessed that cheap plastic hi-fi in the spare room given as a christmas present !

5.0 out of 5 stars awesooooooooooooooooome 1 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
nevermind being a fan of the marvellous lips, if you are at all interested in music that differs from the usual manufactured pap, artistic bravery or want to broaden your horizons, this is a must have.
it's the musical equivilant of a charlie kaufman/michael gondry flick
