This review is from: Embryonic [Standard] (Audio CD)
Even if you are a fan of only the FLips more recent accessible stuff, Embryonic has got some smashing tunes that rock good. Yes, there are some "boring" bits (i.e. quieter, not such obvious ear candy) but they grow on you, are mellow and pleasant - track 9 really sounds like 70's Hawkwind at their more ambient. And there is the occasional bit of ""cacophony"" (Aquarius Sabotage) but it sounds fantastic! You just know these trax are gonna sound great live. The Flaming Lips are a great band and are never less than intriguing. Hurray!
