I have similar feelings about Mystics as I do How to Dismantle Your Career An Atomic Bomb. The songs are all fine by themselves, they just don't really fit together on an album. Mystics in particular feels like it would have made 2 or 3 great EPs.

No, heavyweight vinyl can be delegated to 1 LP. Typically bands will spread out records on two 180 gram LPs because of the time limitations on each side of vinyl.

I love the Flaming Lips. I think their best albums are Yoshimi and The Soft Bulletin, but this seems to be an almost unanimous opinion haha. I was telling a friend of mine that I was a fan of them only to find out his uncle is Michael Ivins, the bassist for the Flaming Lips. What a crazy surprise that was!

A year on, and I'm still in awe of Embryonic. I've really found an awesome niche for it: late, late nights when I'm completely burned out, mind shut off while drifting closer to sleep one minute at a time. If it's raining outside, even better. I suggest shutting off the computer, lights, etc. Anything it takes to focus you in on the intricacies of the album, really, and you will be rewarded. It's an extraordinarily difficult album that sounds cool no matter what, but its impressive structure and the thought put into it aren't revealed until you spend some time with the album, preferably with no distractions. Wayne claims this album was created by pure happenstance, but I don't hear that at all. This is the closest they have come to creating an album-long composition, the closest most bands come to doing so.

Cooler yet is that the Flaming Lips are still capable of making an album that causes me to step back and rethink what the band is about, what they do best. It's impossible for me to ask one sound of these guys anymore, now that this album exists; they have succeeded all across the map. All I can ask for now is more of that inspiration exhibited here. I was getting worried about them, but it wasn't the sound they needed to adjust; they merely needed to loosen up and enjoy being weird again.

i love it, from start to finish, from the loud and scary noise blasts down to the barely audible, hushed moments.

The Lips are playing The Soft Bulletin in its entirety for NYE in OKC this year. Pretty fucking cool, if you ask me, although it'll probably be an über-mellow show because of that.

After listening to Embryonic again today, I really wish that was how the production was on Achtung Baby. I'd like Achtung Baby a lot more and I think it would probably have been a lot more alternative and mainstream-fucking-up. If only I had multitracks from that album.

Awww, poor Cobbler...I guess you must move to the U.S., as their NYE show is always in Oklahoma City.
