Incredible B-sides

The sun trilogy(the first three songs) and a change at christmas is all you need. Sunship balloons has to be my favorite flaming lips songs, it radiates happiness and fun. I think these four songs really prove how much heart The Flaming Lips have; moreover, it's great to see that this band can do anything they want musically, just incredible. The EP with the four b-sides is totally worth listening. The remixes are alright, I've heard better; but you should definitely check this one out.

Four really good songs- Four really good stars

Forget the remixes, the new songs on Ego Tripping are absolutely great. "I'm A Fly in a Sunbeam" is yet another great Lips instrumental. "Sunship Balloons" is amazing, it could be a single, a good one at that! Steven takes up vocals yet again on "A Change at Christmas". The remixes aren't bad, just nothing special in my opinion. Did I mention "Sunship Balloons" is amazing?

Worth the discounted price.

This EP is worth the money for the new songs only. The remixes are basically all throwaways and can hardly stand next to the Lips' new efforts. And really, that's all that matters. The four new songs all have the wonderful qualities of the Lips' previous efforts, but they now seem to be pulling all of their experimentation together. "Assassination of the Sun" and "Sunship Balloons" in particular point toward a very bright future if they continue on this path, and "At War With the Mystics" is looking all the more exciting.

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 2000s, 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 sound,...
