8/10 Brett Staff review, 11 December 2009Hey The Flaming Lips have got a new album out and it's mint. I didn't like the last one very much and I wasn't hugely arsed about Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots even though everyone else totally bummed it (although it did have it's moments) so this is quite exciting really. It was technically out last week though so I'll motor through a quick wee reviewsy. Basically if you like the idea of the rhythmic propulsion of bands like Can, Silver Apples and The United States of America given a fresh lick of modern production paint and installed into crazy pop songwriting (sometimes touching, sometimes a wee bit dark) you'll be shit in luck with the vast majority of 'Embryonic'. Karen O's on a few tunes, MGMT are on one and it's all dead good so buy it if you want to! We fully endorse it!
10/10 Jack Customer review, 7th September 2015
I needed to do a little ode to this album. I've just been re-discovering its simplistic beauty. Embryonic followed on from At War with the Mystics - which saw the Flaming Lips at their most poppy and accessible. Things could have so easily gone downhill and sad for them if they had tried to do another album in that vein but Embryonic came along. With it we really hear THE BAND, properly, for the first time in a long time - probably since Clouds Tastes Metallic. The tracks are still utterly unique and interesting but it's really just a group of guys having fun recording live in a room. And oh my god the bass is gorgeous throughout.
