Out Of Stock The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin (2xLP)
"...'The Soft Bulletin' is a joyous, celestial celebration of sound. Rhythmic and piano-laden, it's heavenly in both its conception and execution. The songs are a series of dazzling collages of harps, strings, operatic choirs and stereo sound effects. Yet it's still a pop record. Three of the best songs - the brilliant 'Race For The Prize', 'Buggin'' and 'Superman' - are mixed by Peter Mokran, an engineer better known for his work with Puff Daddy and R Kelly. As ever with the Lips, though, it's not just the sound that makes this a great record, but Coyne's skewed emotional lyricism. Loosely speaking, a concept album, 'The Soft Bulletin' continues his preoccupation with The Great Themes (life, death, good, evil, existence itself), veering from Superman to artificial insemination in the space of a few seconds. Suede, this isn't. What makes the Lips unique is that over a decade into their career, ideas are still cascading from Coyne's head. Like Jason Pierce and Kevin Shields, he's determined to make music in different and ever more interesting ways, and on this album he succeeds triumphantly. The combination of the emotional and experimental is more touching and wonderful than it's ever been on any Flaming Lips record in the past. It's some achievement." (Read more: www.nme.com)

About: "...The Soft Bulletin, their follow-up to the four-disc gambit Zaireeka, is in many ways their most daring work yet, a plaintively emotional, lushly symphonic pop masterpiece eons removed from the mind-warping noise of their past efforts" (http://www.allmusic.com)
