5.0 out of 5 stars A truely genious concept based album., 15 Nov. 2002
This review is from: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (Audio CD)
The flaming lips are famous for writting sureal lyrics over brilliant pop harmonies. This album does not differ. This time around the Lips prefare acoustic guitars and sound effects to electric guitars (early lips) and orchestral segments (soft bulletn), yet still shows signs of old lips traits. The songs are brilliant and is hard to pick highlights. Ego tripping at the gates at hell mixes an amazing melody with thoughtful, lost love lyrics. Morning of the Magicians ponders the realitys of love and hate and One more Robot and yoshimi battles the pink robots part one and two tell the story of, as u would guess, a girl called yoshimi fighting pink robots. However as hinted in the "Fight Tests" brilliant pop and lyrics the theme of this story is that sometimes you have to fight for what is right, and with the robot falling in love with yoshimi, that any man can be bought to clarity by love (as the lyrics say amazingly "is it wrong to think its love, when he trys the way he does".
Its Summertime is about dealing with death, and is put amazingly, and "Are You a Hypnotist" emphasises the sudden mystery of love and deception. All We Have Is now has a brilliant tune and messege that you should treaure life and the album ends on a glorious instrumental track. However the highlight of the album is Do You Realize, in my opinion one of (if not THE) best songs ever written. It makes you feel warm and appriechiative of life, and has brilliantly simplistic melodies and lyrics. Alot of the things mentioned you actually don't realize about life and the songs bring you to a blunt, yet strangly pleasing evaluation of life ("everyone you know will someday die, but insted of saying all of youre goodbyes yet them know you realize....") This song, and album is better and more simplisticly genious than anything the beach boys or any band (apart from the lips themselfs on the soft bulleton) have made.
