iTunes Review

Released at the outset of a new millennium, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots found the noise-rockers inventing a musical landscape in which trepidation and awe collide. “Fight Song” and “One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21” overwhelm the listener with a lava flow of sonic pleasures—gurgling synths, gelatinous basslines, levitating vocals—while “In the Morning of Magicians” unearths the sweetly melancholic folk songs lurking beneath layers of auditory stimulation. With Wayne Coyne’s childlike voice calling out through an orchestral hail, “Do You Realize” becomes a blissful hymn for an uncertain future.

One heck of an album. Buy it, put the headphones on, and melt away in a stream of wonder.

Genre: Alternative

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

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...
