4.0 out of 5 stars I Realize the Genius of the Lips!, January 18, 2003
By 
This review is from: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (Audio CD)
Having no knowledge of the Flaming Lips outside of their oddball hit single from years ago in "She Don't Use Jelly" I had no idea what to expect from this record when reading of it's critical acclaims. What I ended up getting was one of the most surprising, fulfilling albums I've come across to date. It's a neo-psychedelic pop masterwork that is even more rewarding in the long run than the short. What appears to be a loose concept record about a young girl, Yoshimi, and her battle against those "evil" robots as their called in the mesmerizing track "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots pt. 1" is in the end quite touching thanks to the very sincere, solid lyrics of lead Lip Wayne Coyne. "Do You Realize??" ends up being possibly the best single of the year with it's hypnotic acoustic guitar underlay and touching lyrics. Each song is highlighted by an airy touch of electronic nuances that give the album a robotic feel, but still a very human one. I really can't say enough about how surprised I was at the brilliance of this album and each further Lips release will be very much anticipated.
