The Flaming Lips, The Terror
2013 | Label: Bella Union / Republic Of Music

Hidden within the cheery, let’s-release-music-in-a-gummy-bear-and-ride-through-life-in-a-metaphorical-plastic-bubble public persona that has come to define The Flaming Lips over the past decade, darker things have been lurking: angst, anxiety, a deep fear of the unknown. And while the Oklahoma-based psych rockers have been moving aggressively in a bleaker direction since 2009′s trippy Embryonic, The Terror may well be their most dour and disturbing display to date.

The post-apocalyptic haze of distortion, martial drum beats and stuttering, Morse-code keyboards that… read more »

They did give me my money back, mind! Thanks emusic! Although they still haven't fixed the issue - doesn't look likely they will, as someone points out in another post,

Very disappointed by emusic. Unlike CD version and other download sites every song has a few more seconds on the end of dead air; seeing as how most tracks are supposed to transition seamlessly this ruins the listening experience.

This version of The Terror is really not worth the credits and Emusic does not seem to any intentions to do anything about it.

This otherwise excellent album is supposed to have seamless transitions between the different tracks. The Emusic version has some rather unpleasant breaks that spoils the listening experience and the intention from the band.

Looks like there are bonus tracks for the itunes-version (wikipiedia lists 3 e" iTunes exclusive bonus tracks")

No 'Sun Blows Up Today' on the emusic version of The Terror? How odd.

2011: I Shall Be Released

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

May 23, 2011, was a small landmark for pop music. Lady Gaga had announced on New Year's Eve that her new album Born This Way would be released on that date, and the drumbeats heralding it kept building; it sold more than 1.1 million copies in its first week (partly thanks to massive discounting). It wasn't the biggest release date for any album ever, and it's not the last release date that will ever be… more »

What If The Grateful Dead Weren’t

By Sean Fennessey, Contributor

The Grateful Dead are a peculiar entity, and tough to think about critically because they exist almost entirely as their own subculture. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones are similarly successful, massive revenue-generating groups, but they defined culture at large. Everyone can find ways to wrap themselves in the subtext of those bands or, in the least, find songs that they admire. The Dead are a different thing; with fans of the group comes a… more »

Icon: The Flaming Lips

By Jim DeRogatis, Contributor

Formed in 1983, the Flaming Lips are fast approaching their third decade as one of the most inspired and creative bands in rock, on stage as well as in their distinctive recordings. As noted in the intro to my 2006 biography, Staring at Sound: The True Story of Oklahoma's Fabulous Flaming Lips, a band that produces an artistic triumph, as well as its most commercially successful release, on its 10th album (Yoshimi Battles the Pink… more »
