Favourite Albums of 2011 #3: "Embryonic"
The Flaming Lips
There are a lot of people who say that the Flaming Lips have gone all conventional and unadventurous. I think they need to listen to this album. Maybe it is not the kind of unconventional and adventurous that earns the respect of the more outré-loving members of Frank's APA (in whose pages this first appeared), but it is rather out there compared to anything Joe Normal listens to*. Not that there is anything wrong with what Joe Normal likes, but it is great that this kind of semi-psych weirdo music can find something approximating to a mass audience.
As previously discussed, the record cover seems to feature Wayne Coyne being born out of a woman's lady parts.
*I expect some disagreement with this proposition.
