iTunes Review

The title track was written for the sci-fi film Ender’s Game, while the remaining four songs were inspired by the film and the original book by Orson Scott Card. In many ways a suitable follow-up to the 2013 album The Terror, Peace Sword focuses The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne by working with another writer’s imagination. The limitations imposed by this process free Coyne to worry more about his songs' sound and emotional tenor than the overriding story. As a result, tracks like “Peace Sword (Open Your Heart)” and the grand ballad “Is the Black at the End Good?” feel complete underneath all the pretty and dazzling effects. “If They Move, Shoot ‘Em” slithers away from straightforward writing into a subliminal track that sounds like a movie’s most devastating scene. “Think Like a Machine, Not a Boy” brings out Coyne’s lifelong love of Pink Floyd by crafting the sort of plaintive, static, and beautiful melody that’s always been one of his strengths.

Heard this album off soundcloud

Grate Can't stop listening to this.

Another Flawless Masterpiece.

Great!!!

After the rather bleak sounding The Terror, these songs bring a little fun back to the flaming lips music. A must have for any fan!!!

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,...
