I’ve always loved the flaming lips, and basically all of their phases. Yet this album has just never stuck with me. After doing some relistening of a lot of the Flips discography recently, I decided to give this album another shot, but sadly it’s still not really doing it for me. I think this is one that I'm just going to keep coming back to ever so often until I finally get it

70/100 (Average). Remember that those buttons say helpful/unhelpful, not agree/disagree

Neo-psychedelia at its best.

Only good, the singer tries to sings notes out of his range and it ends up sounding dull, and I don´t like the lyrics that much. The instrumentation is amazing.

Maybe I'm not ready for this album. Really didn't move me in any way. All the songs sounds the same for me.

Major label graduate albums don't come any more genius than this. Hell, I don't think many albums come like this.

A set of very personal, in-depth lyrics with interesting, multi-layered melodies makes for an extremely accomplished piece of art. None of it fell flat, all of it was consistently great.
