Fewer band's have remained so deliciously weird and consistently influential in the universe of alternative rock than The Flaming Lips. Led by the eerie and pounding The Castle, Oczy Mlody becomes the latest addition to a bulging catalogue - which continues to reinvent and surprise over 24 years down the line.

8/10 Simon Ghent Customer review, 15th January 2017
First off, I love the Lips. I got all the 12" singles they released a couple of years ago (as compiled on Heady Fwiends (shit title, but good stuff)), I have their posters in my living room, I even have Zaireeka on vinyl.
This is a good album. It follows on nicely from The Terror (their last 'proper' album) but is quite a bit more up beat (unsurprising as that was pretty much a breakup album). It's their most musical album since the Mystics I'd say.
It's good to have them back on track. Much as I enjoyed their release a month stuff, this is more thought out and hangs together really well as an album.
They're really not hitting the highs of '92 to '02, but it's good.
It comes with a bonus 7" of Space Oddity (actually really good - don't think Sargeant Pepper, think Can't Get You Out Of My Head), but it is bloody, unjustifiably expensive. But I bought it and I do like it.
