Flaming Lips "Borderline" = amazing!
 
http://link.brightcove.com/services/...02B0000821597N

I think there's some Lips haters on board, but they're one of my all time favorite bands. They covered Madonna's "Borderline" and it's incredible. Video above. Actually brought tears to my eyes, so if you don't like them, then just don't watch it. Thanks.

Is that some weird video player that I don't have?

Silent Dan Speaks 04.05.2009 02:40 PM

Holy shit that was amazing!

Do they have a new cd coming out any time soon?

SuperCreep 04.05.2009 02:52 PM

Those six minutes almost made me forget about At War With the Mystics. Good stuff.

im sure im going to like the Flaming Lips one day, but like all the others, today aint it.

I've never listened to them. I listened to bit and pieces of this. It sounds alright. Any recomendations, best album, ep, etc?

StevOK 04.05.2009 04:47 PM

I read in Rolling Stone the other day that they are releasing a new album in June.

My favorite album is The Soft Bulletin (one of my favorite albums of all time), and my favorite ep is Ego Tripping At The Gates Of Hell.

My favorite album by them is Clouds Taste Metallic... I find a lot of their later stuff boring, but to me Clouds is a good mix of their later "mature" stuff and their earlier kinda noisey/weirder stuff.

noisereductions 04.05.2009 07:06 PM

Clouds is great. Soft Bulletin is my fav. Transmissions is amazing. New album June/July, but I doubt this is on it.

narlus 04.05.2009 07:25 PM

if they had released 'one billionth' as a single-sided 7", their career would have been flawless.

pbradley 04.05.2009 07:37 PM

I have The Day They Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg on CD and vinyl. Most people like Clouds Taste Metallic or The Soft Bulletin.

You know, I like to listen to the Flaming Lips with one hand resting in a bed of steamed soybean pods and ice, while gently masticating a live roach. I note that it's best to dial down the lights to dim, if not completely off, and to have my trusty neighbor, the Laotian nail clipper with fangs, come over in her teddy and purr like a small engine. And, though alchemical (philosopher's stone turns to gold) and not strictly metalworking, yet still forging/smithworking, remember there is always Piotrek: upon this rock will I build my church. Is there no mercy for the widow's son?

Jesus Egg = Priest Driven Ambulance, son. (plus Mushroom Tapes, yo).

SuperCreep 04.05.2009 09:25 PM

In a Priest-Driven Ambulance is my favorite. Their best album all around - the "Jesus" trilogy is fucking great and the What a Wonderful World cover is one of the best closers I've ever heard. Oh, and Five Stop Mother Superior Rain is wonderful too, of course.

I'm partial to their earlier noisier stuff. I like Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi too, but I maybe pull them out once or twice a year. I think they achieved that whole "21st century orchestral pop Pet Sounds" thingy better on Zaireeka than the SB or Yoshimi. It's a shame it's such a bitch to listen to properly (even if it is well worth it when you can), else it'd be held in much higher regard. At War With the Mystics was just crap, sans about three songs.

RanaldoNecro 04.05.2009 10:00 PM

I am just getting into them. Tried not to rush the experience or force it. There song titles get me so excited..

RanaldoNecro 04.05.2009 10:05 PM

Most original imagination award goes to them. Which BTW is what it is all about.

RanaldoNecro 04.05.2009 10:07 PM

I didn't cry. I must be a little dead inside...

StevOK 04.05.2009 10:23 PM

I didn't cry either, but I might have had I been stoned and listening to it in better quality.
