let's face it...,
This review is from: At War With the Mystics (Audio CD)
the flaming lips lost it a long time ago, they should have split up after the soft bulletin, they've made so many good albums in the past and when i found out they were making an album with yoshimi, a member of 'the boredoms' (one of my other favourite bands) I was really excited, when I actually got to hear 'yoshimi battles the pink robots' I was probably the most dissapointed I have ever been by an album and as far as I'm concerned this album is just the final nail in the coffin. I'd like to hope they're just doing this to make some money at long last, they deserve it after the time they've put in and the many great albums that have gone unnoticed.
If you're new to the flaming lips I suggest you buy one of their other numerous albums i.e. 'hit to death in the future head', 'clouds taste metalic', 'Transmissions From the Satellite Heart' or if you want to hear something more akin to the more recent flaming lips sound, but infinitely better, go for 'The Soft Bulletin'.
I'd avoid this like the bubonic.
