CD Reviews

A must have ep fo flamin lips fans
C. Kirby | Mt Pleasant, SC | 07/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fine ep that kind of is an album. What I mean is, it clocks in at just under 45 minutes, and it contains nothing but unheard material. No, it isn't all major studio work, but where would the Residents be if that is all that matters? A great unknown piece of the flaming lips puzzle. Enjoy....baby."
Essential for Flaming Lips fans - and not as hard to find as
Zen Vulture | Chicago | 11/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"2 months ago, I didn't realize this EP existed. I was shocked to see it listed for $100+, even $200+ Since then, I got into some bidding wars for it (some lucky bloke got it for $8.50 - brand new!) before I got my hands on it at a price that fit my pockets. Keep this little tale in mind when shopping for it. As to the EP itself - for FLips fans, it is worth $200+!

"Bad Days" sounds just like the "Clouds..." version (but that's okay, that horrible batman movie ruined this song for me anyway -my fault for watching it) and I believe that the same version of "...Waterbug..." is available on the "Turn It On" single, but everything else here is unavailable elsewhere as far as I know and is pure GOLD! "Chosen One" and a slightly harsher version of "Slow-Nerve-Action" (which ends with a short, instrumental hidden track) are worth it alone. Wayne Coyne has a certain sadness in his voice that doesn't depress you, but kinda touches you, especially in the beautifully clumsy version of "Little Drummer Boy".

Bottom-line: Get it, but don't hurt yourself in the process.

Why?

"Why doesn't anyone listen to these guys? They're quite possibly the most innovative, creative, and original (heh, all those mean basiclly the same thing) out there. Very few people are actually listening to them, while they do listen to absolut rehashed crapolla from bands which are falling apart or are only a fad."
