8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 6th November 2014
The predecessor to “Clouds Taste Metallic”, “Transmissions From The Satellite Heart” was arguably the Flaming Lips best album to date and really was brilliant, so following that was always going to be a bit of a heady task. I really didn’t like at it at the time, but over the years it has become another great Flaming Lips album.
The album opens with “Abandoned Hospital Ship” which lollops along with a drilling lead guitar. “Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles” is more of an upbeat melodic pop song set against a wall of wailing, screeching guitars and would fit onto either of the previous albums. “The Here Giraffe” stands out with its pounding drums, catchy melody and general silliness. “Brainville” is probably as close as the Flaming Lips get to writing a country stomp. “Christmas at the Zoo” is just daft but that’s what the Flaming Lips do well. The album ends with “Bad Days” which was used on one of the Batman films. I always found it odd that the Flaming Lips were shoved into the limelight like that, but I guess because of that they were known to a wider audience. You can hear little hints of “The Soft Bulletin” on here, although that is only with hindsight.
