I agree. Yoshimi is such an odd bird. Every listen I give it, it gets exponentially more amazing. It's just so damn interesting, musically, sonically, lyrically, and conceptually.

Just listened to At War with the Mystics for the first time.

Definitely a solid album. I totally got the feeling I was listening to an American Meddle-Era Pink Floyd.

...Which is awesome.

I finally get the Flaming Lips. Why people love them so much. I'm here listening to Ego Tripping At The Gates of Hell, preparing myself for the emotional rollercoaster that's about to follow, and it hits me...that's exactly the reason the Lips get so praised. It's not about the giant hands, bleeding foreheads, or alien costumes, but the emotional punch their music has. Anyone can contemplate mortality, but to release it musically in a way that others would want to seriously do the same is impressive. Yoshimi is nowhere near their best album, but it has more magic in it than any other that they've released. It sums up the attitude of Coyne and the band as a whole perfectly. Do You Realize pushes my emotional buttons Every. Single. Time. I hear it. No other song does that. Is it their best song? No. Is it their most moving? Yes. I think that sums up Yoshimi and the band itself perfectly.

That's pretty similar taste in FLips.

I'm sorry to hear that. At least it can't be worse than knowing they're in town and not being able to see them because of fucking Oklahoma!

Which is completely ironic, btw.

And you also get to see Arcade Fire / LCD Soundsystem, so shush.

Yeah, it's hard not to whine when the F'lips come to town and you're not there to see them land.

I saw the Lips almost two weeks ago. Definitely best show I've seen, period.

I think at war with the mystics may be the most underrated album in years. Personally, I find it a hell of a lot more accompished and diverse musically than yoshimi. I think it's the perfect blend of the soft bulletin's 60's sound with yoshimi's spaciness.

i saw them in 2002 at the final show with them and beck when beck was touring for sea change and they opened for him and then went on to be his backing band. as much as i loved sea change, that night when i saw them open, i wish they continued for 2 more hours.

the soft bulletin is one of the best albums ever.

David, were you at the Los Angeles Universal Ampitheatre show or the one in Long Beach? I saw the show in Long Beach and it was fantastic. The venue fucked up our seats; when we arrived they had some obstruction there, so they moved us to 5th row on the side. I too thought the Lips' set was over way too soon. And especially considering how depressing the Sea Change material is, it did seem a bit anti-climactic when Beck came on.

Yes, The Soft Bulletin reigns supreme. I don't know how anyone could prefer Yoshimi to this timeless classic, but whatever.
