Great song ❤️

Good job Miley and the flaming lips. Great song!!!


Ha - Lucy version is amazing. Wayne Coyne and The Lips, plus Moby, and also featuring Miley. Unreal. First band I ever saw live, some 50 years ago, back in my home town of Croydon (South London). And didn’t they do well. Now this. Well worth downloading this track, and then moving across to the real Sgt. Pepper. Also check out the Moby/Lips collaboration a couple of years ago with The Perfect Life. Sure is! Bazza

Pretty rough listen

I hoped for a better release from this band, but recent history has proven that they are no longer interested in the symphonic rock, that made them famous on 'The Soft Bulletin', and instead this album is a collection of noisy and discordant unfinished ideas. The songs that do show promise are then hurt by bad and unnecessary vocal additions (see With a Little help from my friends, and Getting Better) deeming these tracks almost unlistenable, especially the former. Being the Benefit of Mr Kite is also a struggle.

All is not entirely hopeless. Miles provides a glimpse of hope on Lucy and Day in the Life. Phantogram do a great job on She's Leaving Home, Steven Drozd provides a rare moment of restraint on Fixing a Hole, and Foxygen and MGMT's Ben Goldwasser work well on the reprise. But these are just moments within a greater sense of confusion and disappointment. The self-indulgent nature of Flaming Lips recordings are becoming intolerable. Not only have they managed to alienate Beatles fans with this release, but their own fans as well.


Formed: 1983 in Oklahoma City, OK

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Even within the eclectic world of alternative rock, few bands were so brave, so frequently brilliant, and so deliciously weird as the Flaming Lips. From their beginnings as Oklahoma weirdos to their mid-'90s pop culture breakthrough to their status as one of the most respected groups of the 21st century, the Lips rode one of the more surreal and haphazard career trajectories in pop music. An acid-bubblegum band with as much affinity for sweet melodies as blistering noise assaults, their off-kilter...
