For $100 going towards an OKC animal shelter, you can have your name immortalised in the six hour song "Found a Star on the Ground"

I don't ever want to know.

Would be cool, but I'd be hard pressed to spend my money improving Oklahoma. With apologies to all those little pooches, of course.

I'd so do it if I had more than $1k in the bank. Plus with our dollar it'd probably work out cheaper than $100

Alright Lips fans, I need some direction. I started listening to them within the last year or so, and I own The Soft Bulletin (love it) and Yoshimi (meh). Which album should I look into next?

Couldn't possibly back that recommendation up more, particularly if you loved The Soft Bulletin.

Yep, it's a relatively smooth transition into the earlier work if you go with Clouds Taste Metallic.

Agreed that Yoshimi is meh compared to Soft Bulletin, although it has some amazing tracks and impressive production.

I find Yoshimi pretty boring to be honest. Easily last of the five albums I've heard. Definitely got some good tunes though.

I liked Yoshimi a lot more as I listened to it a lot more.

Well, I just had a look at the tracklist. And I really like Fight Test, One More Robot, Yoshimi 1&2, Ego Tripping, Hypnotist and Do You Realise?, which is more than half the album... so I guess my problem with it is I just don't get much enjoyment out of listening to the album, even if I enjoy the individual songs.

Yeah, that seems to be my experience so far. Now that I look into it, I enjoy the last pair of songs (all we have is now, pavonis mons) about as well as anything else there. Seems odd to my head, but that's where I am with it.

Thanks for the recommendation, Impy et al., and I'm glad there seems to be a consensus.

I love these crazy motherfucking bastards.

The Flaming Lips Premiere Six-Hour Song “I Found This Star On The Ground” | Ology

I am not kidding when I say I will listen to this. Apparently it's "Velvet Underground meets Super Mario Brothers"

The EP has two extra tracks,

Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die [6:37]
Evil Minds [4:00]

...both of which are pretty much in keeping with the music so far this year. The 6hr piece is not lossless WAV/FLAC but a 800mb MP3 320k track, all songs are on a 1.5 gb flash.

.....oh yes and iTunes hated importing it...
