3.0 out of 5 stars Unoriginal, 11 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (Audio CD)
This album is totally overrated.
Many of the songs are very good. Do You Realize is brilliant.
But so many of the songs include melodies and tunes etc which have been heard a hundred times before in a hundred different songs.
They were sued by Cat Stevens because Fight Test was such a rip off of one of his songs.
In the morning of the magicians is also another rip-off. It is a good song... but SO unoriginal. It could easily have been made by copying and pasting lots of different bits of other peoples songs together.
"Are you a hypnotist" and definately "all we have is now" are both totally drab, and again unoriginal.
If you want a trully breathtaking album, buy something by Grandaddy or Mercury Rev. I prefer Sparklehorse to this.
The Flips are a good band, but this CD is such an unoriginal CD, why did they have to rip off so much other stuff?
The way this CD has been acclaimed is a total joke.
Buy something else.
