It's not out in stores until April (according to Amazon), but it is already...how does one say...available, elsewhere. Has anyone here listened to it?

IMO: the first track, "Yeah Yeah Yeah Song", sounds eerily like Wayne Coyne channeling Andy Kaufman. But that's just me. Best track would be either Free Radicals or My Cosmic Autumn Rebellion. or It Overtakes Me.

Not as good as Yoshimi, I'd say (not as unified in sound either) - but still worth a listen.

Blee-argh!

Heard it

Yeah, I was able to check that out, and I really like it.

It takes a listen or two of just saying "this is wierd", but once you get through that layer and start really listening to the music, its great.

Yes, its not as brilliant as Yoshimi, but what is? Its a strong follow-up. "Mr. Ambulance Driver" is the best song I've heard in a long time. I like the content on a lot of the songs. I'm not usually a lyrics listener, but the songs really do have a point and say good, interesting things. I don't take it as making a statement about Bush, but I couldn't help but hear a lot of political statements. Good ones, too. All very positive and intelligent. "The Wand" is also a favorite.

I SUGGEST EVERYONE BUY THIS when it comes out. I will.

I liked some of Yoshimi, but it suffered from being too pondering and screechy in places. Look forward to hearing this.

I heard the song off of the PASTE magazine, it was good. Similar though the singing was a little different. I liked it. I doubt it will be anything less of fantastic.

Maybe it's my lack of condition:

But At War with the Mystics is a little underwhelming after a few listens. I am a huge fan of The soft Bulletin and Yoshimi, so I will definetly give it another chance... but so far it's... :? .

I actually prefer it to Yoshimi, which had some excellent tracks but for a lot of the time I found unlistenable. This grows on me a bit more.

The Flaming Lips next album is to be a track-for-track remake of The Dark Side of the Moon.

The Flaming Lips have already recorded a follow-up to “Embryonic.” The band will release a track-by-track interpretation of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” in the near future, which it recorded with Stardeath and the White Dwarfs, a band that features Coyne’s nephew Dennis.

Henry Rollins and Peaches make guest appearances on the album, Coyne told the crowd during a pre-concert question-and-answer session. A Flaming Lips spokesman says the album will likely be an iTunes-only release, at least initially.

Check around 30:00 in the video for a preview.
Back it up a minute or so for the interview lead-in.

Listening to this right now.... wow! :shock:
They kept the basic melodies of the vocal parts but have completely re-written the music!!
So far so awesome.

I JUST heard about this "Dark Side of the Moon" thing. It's pretty awesome!
