I'm torn. I'd rather just wait for the album to come out, but I want to hear the tunes. Waiting won't be too difficult though.

This is their first since Mystics correct? I really dug their last few albums, but somehow still managed to avoid really exploring their work before like... whatever that album from the late 90s was that made them big.

Wow, I totally phail at flaming lips.

Yep, first since Mystics. You haven't heard anything from before The Soft Bulletin?!? Oh man...start with Clouds Taste Metallic, then Transmissions from the Satellite Heart for sure. Both are absolutely fantastic albums, with Clouds probably being their peak before the late 90s/2000s work that made them famous. It's got Ronald Jones as their lead guitarist, and he's just insane.

I actually have both of those album on my ipod I believe. I think I tried listening to them a couple years back and didn't care for them much. But I'm hardly pretending to have given them a fair shake. I'll return eventually.

The Soft Bulletin, a true classic of American music.

One of my top 15 favorite albums EVAR.

And considering the recent exchange in Random, I hope 1B1L sees my photos from my 07 show in here what with her not realizing I'm a huge Lips fan.

Looked back, and the funny thing is that I actually remember seeing your pictures, but I didn't realize they were yours. They're awesome, especially the one at the end with all the confetti strewn across the stage.

Three more weeks until my next Lips show, so I'll share some pictures from my past couple...

This is the 2007/2008 New Year's show in OKC (which, slight shameless self-promotion here, I actually reviewed for this site):




Over 5,000 balloons all released during the countdown, so fucking amazing to see


And, the show earlier in 2007 in Minneapolis:


This moment made my life that night


Shit, just looking at these again makes me sooo pumped to see them again!

Explosions In the Sky

EitS + Flaming Lips. My mind would be positively blown if I could make it to one of those shows.

Well, you did get to have a beer with the National, so count it as even.

I haven't been to a concert since last summer. I think I'd really like to see a Lips show more than anything too at this point, just because it feels like they really know how to put on a show. I mean, fuck, I'm not even seeing Shuttlecock this time around.

I'd rather see a F'lips show at this point. Lance, you haven't listened to Yoshimi? That's got your name written all over it.

Pretty sure Yoshimi came after The Soft Bulletin, YLB. I've listened to and adored both of those and At War With The Mystics. Yoshimi is my favorite actually. One of the most playful, theatrical, and sonically rich albums I've ever listened to in fact.
