TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘The Soft Bulletin’ – By THE FLAMING LIPS (1999)

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘The Soft Bulletin’ by THE FLAMING LIPS
Released: 17 May 1999 / The band’s 9th longplayer

ROLLING STONE wrote: “The eccentric Oklahoma outfit Flaming Lips serenely release another baffling, winning, neo-psychedelic recording. Densely textured, awkward but somehow melodic, The Soft Bulletin finds these pop oddballs with their poker-faced humor firmly intact… Their music isn’t, how you say, universally accessible, and the weirdness gets same-y, but no one
else has posited a parallel universe in which the Sixties and the Nineties exist simultaneously, allowing for a peculiarly convincing brand of monolithic robotic swirl.”
– Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: The Flaming Lips are The Wizards Of Oz Rock creating a fairytale universe with both elves and demons, with good ones and bad ones and
other-worldly symphonies that transfer you to a never-never land full of rainbows…
