Piss album is real?

An Alabama (ROLL TIDE!!) 9.


I've come around and decided I like Oczy Mlody a lot actually. I've also come around and decided the Terror kind of sucks.

Their beer was awful garbage.

The greatest hits regular version is basically what you'd expect the ten most popular songs of theirs on Spotify would be; in other words, it's completely unnecessary unless you just listened to Do You Realize for the first time and kind of liked it or something like that. The deluxe album was pretty good and playing through its entirety brought me back to when I loved the Lips.

Haven't seen the Lips live since 2013 but their recent shows look stellar visually, at least coming from the random photos/videos I've stumbled upon.

Mercury Rev kind of sucks.

I guess the Lips did something with the Spongebob Squarepants musical?

Their old pre-Zaireeka stuff is really dated. I mean, it's good for what it is but it's definitely a product of its time; and I understand why the band evolved the way it did. Personally, I wish they'd have done more stuff that was similar to Embryonic, but I can't complain about too much outside of the Miley Cyrus collaborations.

These are my thoughts on the Flaming Lips in 2018.

That's kinda odd to me because I think Embryonic sounds more like their pre-Zaireeka stuff than anything else.

I'm certainly biased because of how long I've been listening to them, but I also am not afraid to drop a band when they start sounding dated to me, and while I could see Hear It Is or Telepathic Surgery being called "dated", I 100% disagree when it comes to Priest Driven Ambulance, Hit to Death, Transmissions, and Clouds. Those hold up phenomenally well, especially the deeper cuts like "When Yer Twenty-Two", "Halloween on the Barbary Coast", "Felt Good to Burn", etc

The only problem is the use of the equivocal "kind of."

Whether you end up liking Mercury Rev or not, I think the thread title is still accurate.

Shut up DUMMY

The Flaming Lips were a band you'd enthusiastically claim to be a big fan of a decade ago, to where we are at now you'll feel a bit embarrassed and old if you claim to love them to someone.

Yeah, it's such a shame. I'm of the opinion that there's no such thing as a guilty pleasure and to just like what you like but I am definitely not offering up that nugget to anyone without caveats. Same as Metallica and a host of other bands that decided to fade away rather than burn out.

Right? Even like 5 years ago when The Terror came out, I would've called them one of my all-time favorite bands. Now I don't say that anymore.

Yeah it's not a band I ever talk about anymore, or if I do, it's in the context of "can you believe how stupid Wayne Coyne has been for the past 10 years"

It's the voice of MK Ultra
And you're doing what it wants

It's amazing, he turned 50, left his wife, and has just been an embarrassment ever since.

As you can see from my Avi, I thought The Terror was dope but since then...
