the flaming lips. in a radiohead forum. in a u2 forum.

damn. the latest flaming lips album, "yoshimi battles the pink robots" (or something to that degree) made me want to throw a brick after i listened to it. i hadn't felt so impressed by an album since the first time i heard "zooropa" at 16.

needless to say, it has some "kid a"-esque tones to it, so i think a lot of you would like it. so if you haven't picked up this album, go now!!!!!!!!1111111

what is the point in doing something like that? I never understood, it's not like it was some huge corporation's website who had fired them or made their lives miserable, why hack a fan website?

They're American. I think from Oklahoma, to be more specific.

First I listened to it on their website (Thanks AcrobatMan for the heads up on that one) and I liked what I heard so I bought it today. Thank you melon for another excellent recommendation. If you were that impressed by it, I knew it had to be good.

God I love this band. I want to get their previous album before Yoshimi--"The Soft Bulletin."

As soon as I get a job and a paycheck...

I've heard only rave reviews about this band from several friends whose musical taste I trust. I gotta check them out.

Good timing, I just got "Yoshimi" in the mail today. GREAT album. I love the whole tone/feeling of the album. Good mellow stuff.

Oddly, I ordered Soft Bulletin with it, but that didnt show up, just this. Wonder if BMG sends their cd's separetly now.

The Flaming Lips are from the Norman/OKC area of Oklahoma. Chris Martin was pretty excited about it and kept mentioning it when Coldplay was in town.

I must ask: Is it fair to judge the Flaming Lips by "She Don't Use Jelly" and the Yoshimi title track? I don't like either one of those songs, but everyone raves about this band. Any thoughts?

I don't think "She don't Use Jelly" is a good representation.

They were in town here last week. I, unfortunately, was not.

I wish I could have seen them with Beck - especially with the whole Costume Charachter thing they had going on!
