Yoshimi or Soft Bulletin?

For those of you in the know, I'm asking about Flaming Lips albums. Which would you recommend first? BMG just sent me a thing where I can buy any cd's for $7.99 with no shipping and handling. Flaming Lips is about the only thing I see there that I want.

Which would you recommend, or should I just get both or neither? I know not.

they are both great albums with infecting song structures and unforgettable melodies and music.

The difference is that while Soft Bulletin is just a collection of great songs Yoshimi is a great concept album where every song complements the other - Soft Bulletin can sometimes seem incoherent, despite it undeniable greatness.

The mood and atmosphere of Yoshimi alone is reason to buy it. Then you have the great great lyrics (i.e. Mornig of Magicians, Do You Realize?") nothing like Wayne has ever written. They are genuine, and honest lyrics where he questions everything right down to what is love or hate...and the very meaning of life!

the song structures are brilliant in typing F Lips fasion!

at any rate, you will be dissapointed with either purchase
