And so we reach the apex of their ten year noise rock sequence, from their debut "Hear It Is" to this sonically dense, undeniably great record "Clouds Taste Metallic". Just when you think they couldn't top "Transmissions", they do ! It's a dizzying, wondrous pop record drawing from their earlier forays into psychedelia.

Loud, abrasive, and proud. The way only the Flaming Lips could do

Total lo-fi mastery. If GBV wrote this, it would be their magnum opus.

This is one of my favourite Flaming Lips albums. A kind of psychedelic indie pop for the nineties, Brian Wilson meets Todd Rundgren at an acid party. Like most Lips records it's beautiful and noisy, featuring great songs in, brainville, guy gets a headache, and, kim's watermelon gun. Some great songtitles here. Great fun.

I always thought Transmissions from the Satellite Heart was the best pre-Soft Bulletin Lips record. But this one seems to stand up better to repeated listens. There's a lot more silliness (Guy Who Got a Headache..., This Here Giraffe, Christmas At the Zoo), but the guitars offer a much more varied backdrop to Coyne's rambling than on Transmissions. And there's slightly more insight in some of the lyrics too: Placebo Headwound is something special in that regard. The Soft Bulletin cemented the Lips as a musical force, but this album solidified their alternative rock legacy.
