EDITORS’ NOTES

Described by frontman Wayne Coyne as “Syd Barrett meets A$AP Rocky and they get trapped in a fairy tale from the future,” Oczy Mlody—Polish for “eyes of the young”—is a set of viscous, synth-driven nocturnes that extends the band’s recent run of moody experimentation. While “Galaxy I Sink” recalls the despair of 2013’s The Terror, the prismatic pop of “We a Family” sounds relatively unburdened, thanks in part to an appearance by friend and collaborator Miley Cyrus.

Oczy WaahWah

The first track sounds like it could be from The Soft Bulletin. In a good way. If we can refrain from hanging out with Miley Cyrus and concentrate on his band everything will be right with the world.

It's not bad, it's just not interesting

I remember when the Lips were an organic actual band that wrote endearing songs. Now they sound like what they've become--Wayne and Steven making sounds on Pro Tools. There are at least three really good tunes on this album, but the rest is wholly uninteresting and soulless.

A Little Better Than The Last Few, Still Not Great

The Flaming Lips are like Radiohead. They were both great bands that decided to start releasing albums without listenable songs. I am all for experimentation, but I still want melodies.

This is much better than the last couple albums, but still no nowhere near as good as the recordings from 1990-2006.
