http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/flaming-lips-stretching-out-for-mystics-1003972098.story

Coyne discloses the new material's vibe is different from previous studio polished albums such as 2002's "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" and "At War with the Mystics."

Among the new songs currently in the mix are the Joy Division-meets-Miles Davis Group (John McLaughlin era)-sounding "Convinced of the Hex" and the John Lennon-inspired "I Don't Understand Karma," which Coyne describes as his response to "Instant Karma."

I sincerely hope that this is the one that convinces them to never release another album ever again.

I've always thought they would end up doing something like this......if not a full fledge jazz type album. Curious to see if they have enough worthy material to justify a double disc release, but the possible single / EP releases from the album could end up being classic!

Not sure why......but I've always had it in the back of my mind that if The Lips were going to release a double disc set, it would be a full on cover of The Who's, 'Quadrophenia.'

My copy of A Priest Driven Ambulance is a double LP. It's a reissue of course with extras and all that. But still, what's the big deal about a double LP?

I don't know what Joy Division meets Miles Davis Group sounds like, but I'm sure it isn't anything by the Flaming Lips, even though I somewhat like them.

Hmmm...I pretty much feel the same about the Lips as I do Spiritualized. I keep buying the new releases hoping for them to be good, but I'm always disappointed with the new material. The Soft Bulletin has some good tunes but it's downhill after that. Still, I have my fingers crossed, but I don't have much hope.

I don't dislike Miles Davis but tend to get nervous when a band cite him as being an influence on their new project.

I loved the Lips. Their music hasn't excited me in years. They need to get back on drugs.

There are many bands, the Lips included, who fail to follow this logic after their first album. Luckily, there are a greater number of bands who fail to release a single thing, saving the public from the potential travesty of another band ever being as terrible as the Lips.
