Their early stuff is COMPLETELY different to their later stuff. The first album I heard was Clouds Taste Metallic and it put me off listening to them again for years! (Sorry if that's your favorite, it just wasn't for me.) Moral of the story: give their discography a fair punt. If you can't warm to The Soft Bulletin you still might dig Clouds, or Embryonic.

A sort of midwestern take on early Yes/Baroque Pop/Alternative. Quirky and intricate.

They run a good spectrum of modern reinventions of psych pop/rock. Not always consistent but The Soft Bulletin is one of my favorites of the '90s.

Des musiciens un peu barrés , des morceaux planants , que demander de plus ? Je ne connais pas toute la pléthorique oeuvre de ce groupe mais les albums que j'ai écouté m'ont plutôt séduit.

They don't always have it, sometimes they try stuff too experimental that just doesn't work, they release too many filler albums...but when they do have it, they're one of the best bands in the world

From HazeyTwilight 01/11/2014 19:53
Whenever I hear one of their songs, I feel a sense of transcendence every time. Wayne Coyne's voice is flawed but it's memorable and full of personality. The themes and messages he writes are also very potent and inspiring. Steven Drozd is an absolute master at his craft. The other members are important for keeping balance for the band. I can't believe that they've held their career for 25 years and still stay relevant in the eyes of music listeners. They are one of the most purest, most genuine bands to come out in, well, ever! Also, seeing them live is one of the things I must do before I die.
