Easily their best album Goddess On A Highway, Funny Bird, Holes, Hudson Line & Bottleneck Stomp are some of the best things they have ever delivered. I still prefer Flaming Lips though,as they do this style of music the best.

VERY Flaming Lips-esque, though compliments don't come much higher

Wow, some of the best dreamy music! And it really rocks at times! I only think the last track is a bit weirdly placed. I am never really excited for that song to start after Pick Up If You're There.

To lose faith in oneself, yet still with a glimmer of hope that things will get better.

So, I'm gonna listen to this a few more times, and then it'll go into my top hundred. That's how great this is to me.

Lying on the ground, staring up at the stars, it's impossible to ignore just how vast this universe is.

I gave it 3 listens and it never grew up on me. Godess on a highway is a brilliant dong, and probably holes and opus 40 stand next to it, but man the rest of the album seemed a bit lifeless, I just never got it.
