The Flaming Lips- At War With The Mystics (2006)

This is a special album. It's Pink Floyd meet 70s funk- and it's all about what we hate today- George Bush, popstars like Britney & Gwen Stefani, superficiality, ohwell, it's complicated! I love it that each track is unique-and it's really about Flaming Lips getting their point across. The tracks are somewhat erratic but unique , great lyrics and leaves you astounded. Noted for their pyschedelic music, elaborate live performances and unique song titles, this band made it to the list of 50 Bands to See before You Die! Notable tracks: Pompeii Am Gotterdammerung, The Sound Of Failure, Free Radicals, It Overtakes Me. My favourites are Goin' On and Haven't Got A Clue. Words just can't describe this album. Listen to it. Savour it.

Downloaded it, savored it for 10 minutes, and then deleted it. Never been a fan of the 70s. Only song I liked was Goin' On. :-)

i'm speechless. Its not really 70s la..and not all with the 70s influence...its an infusion of different influence- each track is unique wor.

Yes, each track was unique, but just ain't my cup of tea la. Don't flame me ah...:-P

Remember, I don't rate Pink Floyd. :-)

i know why u like Goin' On, coz it sounds like 80s/90s stuff. I like it too. Got an easy feel to it. And there's just this haunting note to the vocals.
