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.

Customer Reviews

Completely Inventive...

Yes, "Do You Realize??" is incredible...but so is this entire album. There is really no comparing this album with anything else out's ethereal, wonderfully lighthearted... and yet, it makes some painfully candid points about how short life really is and living it with all the passion you can muster.

Pure Originality. Pure Soul. Pure Genius.

This review is coming from a skeptic of new music. The thing I personally believe is missing from a lot of music nowadays is soul. The Who, The Rolling Stones, James Brown, The Velvet Underground, and hell, even old punk had tons of soul. ( I didn't mention The Beatles because, they were above having soul and their massive composing skills and creativity just rolled off their fingertips.) However, this album and Soft Bulletin AND At War With the Mystics are all deep, soulful, creative journeys. Wayne, if some how you read this I want you to know that bands like yours, WILCO, and few others keep me going. ( along with the classics) I'm a aspiring producer/ George Martin and you guys keep me from drowning in the Cynic pool. Keep playing, and don't stop the soul Ob-la-di Ob-la-da Brotha!


If you play this album in one boom box, the soft bulletin in another boom box, embryonic in another boom box, at war with the mystics in another boom box, the clouds taste metallic in another boom box, and any three six mafia album in another boom box and press play at the same time what you will get is a syphony of musical ecstacy. This should be played at my funeral and my grand entrance to heaven. If I get to heaven.


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...
