I bought it, I was only able to listen to two of the LPs at the same time. It was kind of neat.

First track from A Little Help From My Fwends. The Drozd-led Electric Wurms doing Fixing a Hole. Pretty damn boring, considering it's one of the cooler tracks from Sgt Pepper.

For fun I turned on the Flaming Lips debut album.

Does it make me pretentious if I say I REALLY like it?

I like their early stuff too. Not nearly as much as what came later, but it's got a cool Jesus and Mary Chain thing happening.

I bought them all on coloured vinyl last year but have yet to listen to them. I'm a big fan of Hit to Death in the Future Head though.

I was surprised by how post-punk they were. Reminded me a lot of that 80s punk scene that I like, but am not well-versed in.

I guess Wayne licensed a Clouds song for a new Kmart advertising commercial campaign. At least money from it gets sent to Ronald Jones. While most current and former fans dislike Wayne and his choices at least he has made good on making sure Ronald Jones gets royalties. I don't care about bands licensing songs to commercials these days. You do what you have to. Kmart is a sad department store chain and there's nothing they can do to rehab their image anyway.

The second single has great music but the lyrics are just bad.

How?? has terrible lyrics.

And so far, that is my ONLY complaint about this album....what is everyone bitching about with it? All I've heard is that critics and early listeners are absolutely hating it.

I think it's fucking fantastic and probably my favorite thing they've released since....the 90s? Maybe...that's a bit of a stretch, but I'm thinking about it.

Just finished The Castle and I agree. That song was excellent. As is the album. I'm really happy.

The Flaming Lips

I liked what I heard of it this morning quite a bit. It has some good song titles.

First impression: I don't care much for this. Not yet, anyway.

It's a weird album because it has the haze and mood of The Terror, but sweetens it up a bit with some sparkling melodies from time to time. That's an interesting progression but, unfortunately, it takes an enormous nosedive lyrically and thematically. Part of what made The Terror such a powerful, enveloping piece of work was its sense of purpose and brave dedication to maintaining an atmosphere that limited replay value but strengthened its message. Conversely, I'm not sure what Oczy Mlody is trying to say. It's like they felt they needed to put an album out but didn't have any real reason to, so they stayed in a similar headspace to the last album but tried to stretch out from it just a bit.
