Eccentric Squad THE FLAMING LIPS Released 10th LP ‘YOSHIMI BATTLES THE PINK ROBOTS’ 20 Years Ago Today

Back in time

16 July 2022

Band: The Flaming Lips
Who: The eccentric fairy tale rockers from Oklahoma,
conducted by mastermind Wayne Coyne

Album: YOSHIMI BATTLES THE PINK ROBOTS – the band’s tenth LP
Released: 16 July 2002 – 20 years ago today

AllMusic wrote: “After the symphonic majesty of  ‘The Soft Bulletin’, the Flaming Lips
return with Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, a sublime fusion of Bulletin’s newfound
emotional directness, the old-school playfulness of Transmissions From the Satellite
Heart, and, more importantly, exciting new expressions of the group’s sentimental,
experimental sound. Funny, beautiful, and moving, ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots’
finds The Flaming Lips continuing to grow and challenge themselves in not-so
obvious ways after delivering their obvious masterpiece.”
Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: One of my all-time favorite bands on record and live. This is
their second-best longplayer after their outstanding tour de force The Soft Bulletin‘, released three years before. It sounds like listening to a sonic science fiction fairy tale
with lots of blissful and starry-eyed reveries, wondrous stories and magical tunes.

The singles: Do You Realize? / Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1 / Fight Test
