NOT Pink Floyd,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essential Mercury Rev, The: Weird Years 1991 - 2006 [Ltd.] (Audio CD)
Do not buy this thinking Mercury Rev are anything like Pink Floyd. Second rate Flaming lips is more like it. A few moderately good songs. A lot just go on and do nothing (alright, just like the many bad bits of Atom Heart Mother).

What a pointless 'review' this really is. As a follower of both the Floyd and the Rev for many years I have at no time heard anyone suggest the latter sounded like the former, so what exactly are you trying to say here? As for the Flaming Lips, comparisons are almost inevitable bearing in mind the close connections between the two bands. Personally, although I enjoy much of the Lips work a lot, I would contend that Mercury Rev are the superior band on the basis of the stunning "Yerself Is Steam" album alone!
