The Drugs Don't Work!
on 18 August 2002
As one of those who jumped on the bandwagon after The Soft Bulletin, I'm afraid I was expecting something quite different.
Whatever it was that The Flaming Lips have been on to come up with the concept and tunes for this album, I really wish they'd spent the time in The Priory instead!
I was also lead to believe that this was a concept album, but I'm afraid I can only follow the narrative for the first half of the album - after that it just goes on and on and on about love, (hardly a ground breaking subject!).
So... two weeks after buying it, I'm afraid I've replaced it on the Hi-Fi with The Soft Bulletin - in the hope that the disappointment of this album will fade into memory!
