I think you'll really like it. People who aren't particularly attached to old Flips seem to love the album.

I can't blame Wayne for having sex with K MONEY. She's hot as hell.

 
She's also making more exciting music than the Flaming Lips are these days.

The Big Old Bug Is The New Baby Now is one of the strangest songs ever. I wonder what they were smoking that day?

I spent way too much on The Terror, but it's a beauty.

She is hot.

But your spoilered statement is laughable.

Buttefly, How Long It Takes To Die is my early favorite on the album.

I like this album a lot. More so than Embryonic.

Definitely better than Streethawk. With Streethawk as a unit for my enjoyment of an album I'd say The Terror is 1.685 Streethawks.

I was reading the lyrics while listening to this album. Wayne is seemingly fascinated by the sun. And pain, being alone, dying, controls, violence and fear. Yeah, it's quite bleak. Makes the album even scarier.

My copy came with a mini CD including All You Need Is Love and Sun Blows Up Today. Too bad I don't like either of those songs.

I listened to the title track on vinyl, with headphones plugged in. Wow that song is creepy. There's some really bizarre shit coming through on the right channel that sounds like a tape being eaten.

If Ke$ha had anything to do with the breakup of what appeared to be a great relationship, I'm going to have some demons to wrestle.

Gave my first listen to The Terror and really liked it. It certainly has a demented quality to it, but I appreciate that it is almost a cry for help rather than a blaring scream. Flaming Lips have always been hit or miss for me, with seemingly no correlation with the general consensus - I thoroughly enjoyed Heady Fwends but could barely get through Yoshimi - but I'm liking this incarnation that they've been pursuing with Embryonic and now The Terror.

Thought you'd like it

I'm not saying this is an early AOTY or anything but I definitely think it'll be hanging around there at the end simply because it keeps improving with every listen, which is special.

That's not really all that "special."

Doesn't most every good album get better with repeated listens? It's kind of the natural way of things. You listen to a good album more often, it shows itself to you, you learn more about it, you notice new things, the melodies grow on you, etc.

Of course not. Every single album ever is supposed to be listened to once, and the opinion developed is set in stone as your end-all, be-all thoughts on that album from now until eternity. Duh. The term "grower" is only thrown around by people when a band they like releases an album they really wanted to like, but didn't manage to form an honest "zomg amazing!" opinion on it in that crucial first listen.

Well yeah. I should have specified a degree of improvement.

I went from undecided/intrigued/disappointed with the Terror after several listens to being totally in love with it in on the next one. That happens sometimes, but for me that's special.

You don't think some albums have more depth than others?

And for me at least, it's definitely not a given that I will like an album more each time I hear it.

Pretty sure that was sarcasm.

I'm actually with you on Yoshimi iyup. Not a big fan.

I was responding more to the second part, about "grower" just being a term people use for revisionist purposes.
