3.0 out of 5 stars Good......but not great!, 21 April 2006
This review is from: At War With the Mystics (Audio CD)
I think I will always look forward to a new Flaming Lips release. They show a type of creativity and inventiveness that most bands barely hint at and have never put a foot wrong, creating a flawless succession of albums from "Hit To death In The Future Head" in 1992, all the way to their previous offering "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots". Therefore it kind of pains me to say it, but "At War With the Mystics" just isn't up to the very high standards that the band have set themselves.

There is some excellent music on here, but there are also a couple of fairly mediocre tracks and, overall, the album just doesn't gel as much as the genius of "The Soft Bulletin" or "Clouds Taste Metallic".

I may learn to love it given time. But, at the moment, it seems like a pale imitation of the Lips at their best.
