People have noted two things about this band: That they are consistently good, and that they are consistently doing new and different things. Both are true, and it means that essentially anyone can find something they like in their discography. Here is a breif overview of their discography:

• Noise rock: Studio albums from their inception to around the time of Clouds Taste Mettallic, they made really fun, raucus noise rock.
• Psychedelic art pop: The Soft bulletin and Yoshimi, both of which are quite highly revered. Still very fun, but less noise and more weirdness. At War With Mystics could also be here kinda, though its a little noiser.
• Increasingly electronic: From Embroynic to Oczy Mlody (and beyond?) their studio albums have gotten increasingly experimental and electronic. Not my personal favorite, but some really like it.
• Cover albums: With A Little Help From My Fwends (Sgt. Pepper's), Playing Hide And Seek With The Ghosts of Dawn (In The Court of The Crimson King), and The Flaming Lips Cover Dark Side of The Moon (self explanatory) are three great full-length, track for track covers. They usually employ a whole host of collaborators and such, so they are not fully Flaming Lips albums, but they are all surprisingly good. Fun and wacky in the usual FLips way.
• Odds and Ends: Some of their best stuff is the stuff that defies catergorization. 7 Skies H3 is a personal favorite of mine; its selections from a 24 hour long song they did at some point. Its closer to postrock than anything else. Its really cool and moody and atmospheric. The other album I would put here, Zaireeka, is a weird project released on 4 different CDs or vinyl records, that have to played simultaneously to get the full effect.

Hope you love them as much as I do!

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

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.
