flaming lips are brilliant

I am fascinated b everything they do

you must hear

Race for the Prize
Waiting For Superman
Fight Test
Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell
Do you Realize?

they have a cd called Zaireeka which is a 4 disk album
in order to hear each song in its fullest you have to have f stereos and the 4 disks running at the same time!!!

awesome concept!!

Suddenly Everything Has Changed, think that is it! Basically anything from Soft Buletin is ok with me!

I really dont like these guys... I saw them live over the summer with Cake, and they actually kind of freaked me out.

yes yes "suddenly" is aw3esome

it's beautiful how they use dynamics there
there's a big instrumental interlude and then the beat comes back in when he sings,
"Putting all the clothes you washed away"

brilliant

Brilliant band, although Soft Bulletin is tons better than "Yoshimi..."

Their best song ever ever ever: Feeling Yourself Disintegrate.

I don't think soft bulletin is any better than yoshimi

I like the mood and flow of yoshimi better
as well as the song structures and mixes

But both are equal in my mind...just brilliant stuff

I can't wait to hear Zarieeka. I have 3 stereos, I'll just need one more!

Actually, while interesting, that sounds more annoying than anything.

It would be, except for the fact that the tunes are great, and the four stereos really adds to it. Unfortunately I've only participated in one Zaireeka listening party, but I hope to do more in the future...Also, the CDs can be listened to separately, and are quite good.

Basstrap: How anyone can argue that the songs on Yoshimi are better than (or equal to) those on Soft Bulletin is beyond me...half of yoshimi is terrific, and the other half (almost perfectly divided) is crap...all of soft bulletin is excellent, without exception.

fight test goes without saying....amazing song

One More Robot...again...beautiful song. And it is here that the bass fist makes its big appearance...something I really lov about this album.
"one more robot learns to be..."

Yoshimi part! is, again, indisputably great
it's just so catchy
the think I love about this album is the weird, actually asian feel...it just has that really great mello atmosphere. But beneath all the weird and interesting sounds is a plain old acoustic guitar which carries almost every song. It gives the songs more accessibility...it's just a really brialliant idea

partII is EXACTLY like watching a vidoe game. This is the only one I skip. It's cool...but actually kinda scary!

Morning is, I think, my favorite track. It brings a tea to my eye almost everytime!! The instrumental segways are PERFECTLY constructed and just surge in a heart-pounding climax on the minor chord.

Ego is the perfect song to follow this. Another heart breaker with great bass and a nice mood.
"I was wanting you to love me...but your loving never came"

Are You A Hypnotists? okay...I'm starting to wonder where your line b/w good and sucky songs is. And I HOPE it's not here. This song is one of the albums "obvious classics". I love the intense clix which happen around the "What is this? Are you some kind of hypnotist" awsome

Summertime. This was my least favorite after first listen. Now I'm just not sure where it goes...I have fallen for it. I always loved the beautufl instrumental segway, but the whole structure of the song is done is pure lips brilliance.

Do You Realize? I really don't need to say anything about this. You like it, cos if you don't I'll beat you

The last two, I admit, are weak relative to the greatness of the rest

I have resurrected this old, old thread to announce that the Flaming Lips are apparently performing on the Jimmy Kimmel show tonight, Friday, April 30(so says the local college paper). Thought some people around here might be interested in watching that.

Oh, I love these guys! "Race for the prize" is one of my favourites. I saw them live, filling in for the White Stripes, at T in the Park last year. They all wore red and white (even the animals) and opened with their own version of "seven nation army". Has anyone else heard the song "Thank you Jack White For The Fibre-optic Jesus That You Gave Me" ?

Geniuses.

if i remember correctly, the music came on at around 1am. i sat through about 15 minutes of jimmy kimmel crap and commercials (there were more commercials than anything else) when DKM were on that show...that was defeintly not worth it.
