Completely missed this band at the time. 2018 listen and guided to it through positive reviews here - great album starting with the Father to Son rip off - "Fight Test". Also loving the "Do You Realize??" which/ appears to lend some of itself to Arcade Fires "Half Light" don't you think

From contra
This album is catchy and fun to listen to and the feeling and concept behind it are great. I don't listen to a lot from this genre but I genuinely love everything about Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, and it's been the gateway for me to listen to more albums like this.

Favourite songs: Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 1 & 2, In The Morning Of The Magicians

This album is gorgeous it sounds bunkers and It still is catchy as hell, it's lyrics are simple at the same time they are dreamy. So go on, listen to Yoshimi pt.1 and fight some robots, cause this album makes you feel like you actually could do that.

Brilliant through and through. Fantastically thought provoking lyrics and the structure of the album pays off brilliantly. I could do without a couple of the more story-driven tracks that seem to lack the metaphorical qualities of some of the others, but it's a minor blemish on an otherwise amazing piece of psychedelic pop/rock.

My favourite Flaming Lips record ! The psychedelic pop evidenced in the great "Soft Bulletin" also plays a huge part in this record, but there are also welcome undercurrents of electronic music and space rock. "Yoshimi" is a concept album of sorts, but it's also a dizzyingly dreamy voyage into the unknown. I love the run from "Fight Test" until "Yoshimi Pt.2", but the rest of the record is equally excellent. Their magnum opus.

Only got this album this week and given it a few listens - loving the vibe. Excellent and interesting and could feature in a future top 100 - totally missed this band at the time unfortunately

From nitomano
Este album significó tantas cosas para mi, en el 2002 yo tenía apenas 10 años y me adentraba al mundo de la música cuando leí reseñas positivas sobre el album en general y mi interes hacia el mismo creció bastante, pero por varios motivos no me fue posible escuchar el disco nunca. Tiempo después (Unos 8 años aproximadamente) me encontré con el disco en una tienda de música y sin dudarlo lo compré y vaya que valió la pena el tiempo de espera, todas las canciones me parecieron excelentes y el sonido en general me pareció único.
Poco a poco este disco se ha convertido en uno de mis favoritos debido a su originalidad, su belleza y también al factor nostalgia y sorpresa que generó en su momento.
Realmente me fascina en su totalidad pero en especial It's Summertime y Ego Tripping At The Gates Of Hell son mis favoritas.

Might not be their best and most of it's appeal is the product of Soft Bulletin's pop mastery. Although this does showcase all the prominent elements of Coyne's craftsmanship & artistry.
