5.0 out of 5 stars The Lips at their finest!, 17 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: In a Priest Driven Ambulance (Audio CD)
This really is the Lips at their finest. After the patchy Telepathic Surgery album, this is quite unbelievable. Every song, execept Take Meta Mars, is quite exceptional, unique, rocking. Five Stop Mother Superior Rain is the best track, just for the chorus, unprintable here. Each track is printed on the back as being 3 minutes 26 seconds long, but it isn't. Lots of great god songs, which have nothing to do with god. If you're intrigued about the Lips, maybe this isn't the album to buy first, but ultimately you will come to the conclusion that this is their finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection once again from the lips, 25 Feb 2005
This review is from: In a Priest Driven Ambulance (Audio CD)
After a brilliant but unstructured first 3 albums, this was the one where Wayne Coyne finally got it right.
Bringing in the guitar genious that is John Donahue (of Mercury Rev) they created an Album which for a long time was their best work.
Not a concept album, but a "themed" album, big difference. Micheal Ivans of the Lips revealed that all ten of these songs are religion based, even though only 3 are stated to be.
People often interperet musics meanings in their own way, what it says to them. For me this album is about bad things that happen in the world and religions lack of an explanation as to why they happen. Each song contains elements of peoples misfortunes and religious references, leading into the final song, a cover of Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World".
After the damning of religion, the album concludes with this almost sneering, sinister cover, as Wayne practically spits out each word about how wonderful our planet is, with Donahue's creepy distorted guitar riff playing in the background. The perfect way to end an album, summing up the previous nine songs into 3 and a half blissful minutes.
Another masterpiece from Wayne and the Lips, a stunning must have album, just what weve come to expect from the worlds greatest band.
