This next L.P. is amazing for two major reasons.
1. The Flaming Lips : Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, is an absolutely fantastic record! I was never a Flaming Lips fan until one night at work I heard the title track on KTRU Rice University radio, and had to find this record! On my next day off of work I hit all my favorite record stores until I found it. Took it home, spun that rascal and was floored at what a great record it was.
Y.B.T.P.R. sounds like the soundtrack to the greatest sci - fi film never made. Its atmospheric, ambient, and pop all at the same time, with an otherworldly melancholy vibe. Love it!
2. Its CLEAR RED VINYL! My Favorite kind of vinyl! I love clear vinyl over all the other types. It is a great combination of futuristic and retro! Like something you would see on Futurama or The Jetsons!
I can not recommend this album enough. Even if you cant find it on vinyl, get it on any format available. Trust me, you will not regret it!
If these are your personal pics, thanks for taking the time to provide excellent photos!
My first Lips' disc was the 180g edition of The Soft Bulletin - an album with incredible production value. It came packaged with a CD of bonus tracks.
I am with you completely about Yoshimi, and I too ordered a ltd ed red wax copy.
And when I learned that all the albums that followed were released on brightly colored vinyl as well, I promptly ordered At War With the Mystics and Embryonic (also with a bonus CD.)
Thanks again for the great photos, and keep them coming!
Welcome aboard The Spin Times! Glad to have another vinyl lover sign up!
Yeah I take the pics when I have a free moment or two. Part of the charm of vinyl, for me , is the amazing album art, of which it would be a shame not to share. I meant to post more the last few weekends but I got caught up in other bidness. But more on the way, I love records and just gots to show 'em off.
The New album, The Terror, is out now! And dont forget 4/20 is Record Store Day with some very cool 1st time releases coming out! Dazed And Confused soundtrack on pot green vinyl!
So until next time, SPIN THAT SHIT!
