The Terror

The Flaming Lips - 2013

You already know who The Flaming Lips are, but for those who don't know the scope of their career, it basically went like this: Phase 1 - They made very weird, very experimental music meant to be annoying, Phase 2 - They turned into an indie rock band that made raw, but hooky tunes to great effect and moderate success, Phase 3 - They became the modern day Pink Floyd, crafting and orchestrating two of the greatest concept albums of all time, Phase 4 - A bunch of stuff… The Terror is a return to the noisy, psychedelic, drug fueled style from their first few albums, and I get that it's a big part of where they came from. I think it's crap. It's easy to make a bunch of noise, spout nonsense, and call it an album. What they did in the middle two phases of their career, that was hard. That was genius. This is an album for those people who claim that they like the Sid Barrett era of Floyd better than the Gilmour era. "Look…The Sun Is Rising" is the opener, and I actually thought they could go somewhere from there. Sadly, they didn't.

Oof!! Would have loved if your entire review had simply been this part: 'I think it's crap'.
