>>61519708 Oh OK. I've only heard it, I didn't know what the cover looks like.
If you're OP, it's kind of a unique sound, because it's a bit of the modern Embryonic era sounding FLips, but with a touch of the pop elements and structures of Soft Bulletin era. I would say the closest thing is 7 Skies H3 or the Electric Wurms album.
>>61519818 Wrong >>61519811 There really isn't a "right" version. it's whatever you like. But the traclist flashed in the p4k doc, makes more sense, moving Slow Motion up to be between Spiderbite and Biggin.
Does anyone have a link for the non 5.1 version of the soft bulletin, i want to hear all those remixes and shit everyone always talk about >>61519769 for me it feels more like the terror + soft bulletin but whatever
it was the biggest disappointment. they were supposed to finally start making interesting dark music after the terror like radiohead, not revert to infantile saccharine pothead love anthems. fucking dumb assholes.
>>61519915 so... they just made the songs and tell other people decide is what order is it? wew i always thought it was some kind of conceptual album, maybe not lyrically but yes sonically, i mean, race for the prize feels completly like an opener to me, so does sleeping on the roof but as a closer
>>61519967 >so... they just made the songs and tell other people decide is what order is it? No. It just is what it is. >i always thought it was some kind of conceptual album, maybe not lyrically but yes sonically, i mean, race for the prize feels completly like an opener to me, so does sleeping on the roof but as a closer There's a theme that runs through the album, but not really a narrative where songs NEED to be in a certain order.
What happened was that Warner Brothers made them remix the singles for radio airplay, so those songs were tagged onto the end of the album on the US version. And then both the US and UK versions had a unique song not on the other.
So if you want an "album they intended" drop the remixes. But you still have the problem of either Spiderbite Song or Slow Motion. There's no "correct" version with both. that's why it's just whatever you want.
To me, the correct version is the orignal US version because that's what I've been listening to for 16 years.
>>61520004 >they just were bros and helped miley produce her shit so it wasnt so shit that's not being bros. someday miley is going to look back and wish she hadn't spent so much of the best years of her life with some has been burnout turd that leeched off her naivety for personal advancement and entertainment.
Not to mention these classic rock cover albums are appalling cash grubbing jerk off refuse.
>>61519941 it's not bait. anyone who is anyone knows enough to have written of FLips completely at this point. They are are irredeemable garbage that wasn't even great to begin with.
I'm actually amazed they pulled off such tight songwriting with such strong pop sensibilities in 2013. It's easily their best work following the Yoshimi era,* conceptually reflecting hope in the face of pure despair, which is a key element to the Flaming Lips' thematic aesthetic.
*It may be harsh, but I do prefer it to Embryonic.
>>61519818 Fucking no. The vinyl release places Slow Motion in between the Gash and Feeling Yourself Disintegrate, which COMPLETELY breaks the flow of the album. Wayne's beat boxing in the beginning of Feeling Yourself Disintegrate sounds like humanity gasping for breath following the intensity of the Gash, making it sound very emotional, and Slow Motion fucks that up. It's a good song, you just don't place a nice little song like that right in the climax of the album.
>>61520345 where should it be then? also i read in another thread about some anon adding some outtakes to the album. does anybody else do that? is there an EP with the outtakes or something like that i can easily download and add to the album?
>>61520369 i wanna get high but I don't want brain damage, more like I'm on mu and don't want plain garbage. seriously, take your shite thoughts over to b, it's the only place that would appreciate feces like you. You heard me, go on. Get out of here; scat.
>>61520406 >where should it be then? On the UK version of the album, in Spiderbite's place >also i read in another thread about some anon adding some outtakes to the album. >does anybody else do that? is there an EP with the outtakes or something like that i can easily download and add to the album? Download the Soft Bulletin Companion.
>>61520406 >is there an EP with the outtakes or something like that i can easily download and add to the album? I thought you just said you wanted what the band wanted? Why are you just adding random shit to the album?
>>61520406 I can't think of anywhere it would fit on the album. The only logical place I can think of it fitting is in between the Spark That Bled and Buggin', replacing the Spiderbite Song, which raises the question of which song is better: Slow Motion or the Spiderbite Song? And while I like Slow Motion, it's not as good as the Spiderbite Song by far. You could place it either before the Spiderbite song or vise versa, but that would make the album feel slow towards the later early section, so I just can't think of anywhere it would have fit on the album. Really, I think they should have released a bonus EP with the songs that weren't included on the album, because really, they're all good. Slow Motion could have been on that.
>>61520524 since nobody gives a shit i want all the shit nigga, i already have TSB all nice and tidy, might as well have another version full of other work, somehting like those fan remixes of SMiLE, like the MQL for example
>>61520549 >lol is this a new meme? the sad truth is I just do this for a sfssfssf caause im sakhfkhasfasf. really, the number of times I have seen people post 'is this a meme' or say this is the moist SOso auateistic ethsa
>>61520612 >And what makes you qualified to know what it should sound like? ??? who gives a le fuck, autismo? i just want more music from a band a like outtakes and b-sides are always cool, the hell is wrong with you?
>>61520796 OK the actual album outtakes are >The Captain >Satellite of You >100 Foot Hands/Realizing the Speed of Light
Then there are compilation tracks recorded during the Soft Bulletin Sessions >Headphones Theme from Seemingly Infinity >Little Hands (demo for Robert Plant)
Then there are BBC/John Peel radio sessions >The Switch That Turned off The Universe >We Can't Predict The Future >It Remained Unrealizable >Up Above The Daily Hum
And songs only played "live" on the Boombox Experiment shows >A Winter's Day Car Accident >Schizophrenic Sunrise >Altruism or That's The Crotch Calling The Devil Black >Should We Keep The Severed Head Alive? >Heralding a Better Ego
And then of course, the official band stereo mixes of the Zaireeka tracks, once intended for Soft bulletin >The Big Ol Bug Is The New Baby Now >OK I Admit That i really Don't Understand >Riding To Work in the year 2025 >15000 Feet of Despair >A Machine In India (edit)
I think that's everything, along with Slow Motion and the Mokran remixes of the three singles (Race For The Prize, Buggin and Superman).
>>61520496 he was half right >The somewhat forced burlesque style of This Here Giraffe, Christmas At The Zoo, and Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World however, had arias that were a little too distorted which denoted a very tired group.
>>61521805 >the soft bulletin winning by a landslide i knew this place was infested with p4k plebs. the soft bulletin is cheesy infantile crap like>>61519898 said. i will never understand why people love it so much
>>61524481 >That's because you don't know music theory. fuck you. i've been playing bass and guitar for over a decade. i know more about music theory than 99% of the drones who hail that album as a masterpiece. it's simplistic pop music with gimmicky instrumentation and overly-sentimental lyrics.
if you truly appreciated music based on it's utilization of theory, then you wouldn't be listening to pop music to begin with
>>61524982 >Pop music uses music theory though ok i worded that incorrectly. what i meant is that if you value music based on the creative and technical utilization of music theory, then you wouldn't be listening to pop
>the spark that bled ok so they know how to play 7th chords on guitar
>>61525518 i'm not about to get into the "art music vs classical" argument with you, and i'm definitely not going to chart out an entire song to prove a point to some anonymous pleb on a nicaraguan stamp-collecting board.
