Overview

Oklahoma's cloud-hopping psychedelic rockers the Flaming Lips have done some amazing things in their lengthy career -- from performing one of the weirdest alt-rock hits of all time (1993's "She Don't Use Jelly") on "Beverly Hills 90120" to recording a four-disc set meant to be played all at the same time. But nothing they've done to date will amaze fans old and new like this symphonic, classic-rock love letter to life itself. From the first sweeping, string-soaked notes of "Race for the Prize (Remix)" to the moment later on the album when singer Wayne Coyne yelps, "I stood up and I said, 'yeah!' " this is one of the most angelically uplifting psych-rock records of the decade -- a PET SOUNDS for the year 2000. Coyne's dappled lyrics of self-discovery are a better emotional tonic than a year of high-priced therapy, and when drummer Steven Drozd careens in behind him with snare slaps as big as the whole outdoors, you'll feel as if you'll never have a care again. Like a cross between Lynyrd Skynyrd's southern rock and the spaced-out musings of Mercury Rev, songs like the massively rocking "Buggin' (Remix)," the melancholically pretty "Superman," and the subtle, funky "Suddenly Everything Has Changed" are like little escape hatches to a world of endless reverie.
