absolutely essential 2002 concept album of emotive basslines, squelchy analogue synths & manicured acoustic guitars.

few bands can craft life-affirming songs about potentially depressing subjects (the passage of time, fighting for what you care about, good vs. evil) as the flaming lips & on ‘yoshimi…’, they're at the top of their game. ‘do you realize??’ is the standout, so immediately gorgeous that it's obvious that it's the single. funny, beautiful, & moving, this album saw the flaming lips continuing to grow & challenge themselves in not-so-obvious ways.
