iTunes Review

Described by frontman Wayne Coyne as “Syd Barrett meets A$AP Rocky and they get trapped in a fairy tale from the future,” Oczy Mlody—Polish for “eyes of the young”—is a set of viscous, synth-driven nocturnes that extends the band’s recent run of moody experimentation. While “Galaxy I Sink” recalls the despair of 2013’s The Terror, the prismatic pop of “We a Family” sounds relatively unburdened, thanks in part to an appearance by friend and collaborator Miley Cyrus.

Customer Reviews

Oczy WaahWah

The first track sounds like it could be from The Soft Bulletin. In a good way. If we can refrain from hanging out with Miley Cyrus and concentrate on his band everything will be right with the world.

It's not bad, it's just not interesting

I remember when the Lips were an organic actual band that wrote endearing songs. Now they sound like what they've become--Wayne and Steven making sounds on Pro Tools. There are at least three really good tunes on this album, but the rest is wholly uninteresting and soulless.

Refreshing soundscape!

I've been a music hound for many decades, and I'm old enough to have some perspective about "albums" that just exist and albums that cement their place into peoples' hearts and minds. While 'Oczy Mlody' isn't quite in the same league as 'Yoshimi Battle The Pink Robots,' it nevertheless comes across as impressive as hell. I'm not sure why some of the early reviews are so negative. I find this album to be more fresh and bold AND accessible than anything the Lips have put out since Yoshimi. I just bought the album yesterday and I've listened to the entire album 3 times. I am finding it more enjoyable with each listen, even the last track with Miley Cyrus. I'm definitely NOT a Miley fan, but that aside, I think that track, as well as the entire album, deserve fairly high praise. I wouldn't say there's a single blockbuster track, but as is the case with several of the all-time great albums, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I wouldn't put this in the "all-time greats" category (Dark Side of The Moon, Yoshimi, Wrecking Ball, OK Computer, So, etc.), but it's a very strong and meaningful effort, in my humble opinion.

Biography

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...
