nah, overrated album
zaireeka > Boces = Yerself is Steam > hit to death > everything else the flaming lips ever did > everything else mercury rev ever did
>>
>>61562581
haha. The Soft Bulletin is the only thing that either Mercury Rev or the Lips ever did that was 10/10
>>
>>61562453
oh boy
>muh pet sounds of the 90s

you get a yawn from me, soft bulletin
yes, i am speaking to an album because it is probably smarter than anyone who actually likes it
>>
>>61562736
You're a certified autist.

Seriously there's a million times better songwriting and sonic ideas on TSB,
>>
>>61562788
oh boy
>i'll call him autistic that's a good trick

your post is another yawn on top of yawn mountain
soft bulletin is standard songwriting with traditional studio embellishments. it's not a good example of anything
>>
>>61562788
>this is what delusional pitchfork pleb actually belive
lmao

>>61562453
lmao flaming lips are absolute garbage compared to mercury rev
>>
>>61562930
then what is Zaireeka? It's a failed experiment. Failed. Didn't do well because it was a good idea executed badly.

I also don't know what you mean by
>standard songwriting
they're a pop band, always have been - every record of theirs up until embryonic is filled with pop songwriting
>>
>>61562980
mercury rev just have 2 really great albums, everything else gets fucked in the ass by even the shittiest of the flaming lips albums
>>
>>61563029
I'd say
Deserter's and Boces 8/10
YIS 7/10
rest is dogshit
>>
>>61563003
>then what is Zaireeka? It's a failed experiment. Failed. Didn't do well because it was a good idea executed badly.
nah bruh
is great, you are just on the wrong mindset
>>
>>61563071
>deserters above YIS
hahaha holyfuck how can someone be this wrong
deserters is just poor mans soft bulletin
>>
>>61563029
>mercury rev just have 2 really great albums
two more than flaming lips desu
>>
>>61563075
I like it. But the songwriting really doesn't touch a lot of their stuff in terms of songwriting. Although I do have the 4LP - bretty cool.

ok kid

the flaming lips, mercury rev, and every single other neo-psychedelic band btfo
>>
>>61563308
I gave it a 7 man. I like both bands, but I honestly don't see what all the fuss is about compared to an album like Boces which comes out of the gate crashing, and provides some fantastic noise pop.

>OTC >>> AnCo
lmao
AnCo mastered the genre m8
they did what all those other bands did before and did it in their own way, better, poppier, and more experimental
also OTC is the most overrated boring garbage band.
mercury rev tried noise, anco did HCTI, STGSTV and fucked them in the ass
flaming lips went bleeps and bloops, anco did fall be kinda/MPP and fucked them in the ass
OTC tried le artistic beatles/beach boys rip off, anco made feels, sung tongs, other ep's from the same era, and fucked them in the ass.
Panda Bear made person pitch and killed chill-wave before it even existed.
and now painting with and freakin with deakin are on the way, i wonder who will be fucked in the ass now
>>
We all know the Beach Boys circa Smiley Smile were the best psych pop band ever

better than animal collective, flaming lips, mercury rev, the beatles, whatever

MQR smile is literally SMiLE + all the other drugged up stuff, you should check it out fo you havent.
still love smiley smile tho, feels like proto danse manatee or something
>>
>>61563661
I like AnCo but they can't string a coherent album together for shit apart from MPP and Strawberry Jam.

>>61563742
cool too but they fell right the fuck off after Smile

>they can't string a coherent album together for shit apart from MPP and Strawberry Jam.
what are
>STGSTV
>feels
>fall be kind EP
>water curses EP
>sung tongs
also danse is great but i cant understand why people hate it is ok.
just because it doesnt flow perfectly it doesnt mean is not coherent, learn to abstract
>>
>>61563934
I really want to tell you that the Soft Bulletin is better than Pet Sounds but I can't really think of a reason for why it could be, apart from my own personal taste.

I also don't want to start an argument in which I become entrenched in my opinions about a genre I consider to be my very favourite.

I'm gonna go.

Sort stuff out in my head.
>>
>>61563980
STGSTV is a 9/10 for me but has a couple of weak songs
>Same for Feels
>Fall be Kind has two blindingly shit songs
>Water Curses is meh
>Sung Tongs is ok I guess. Winters Love is GOAT but songs like Visiting Friends don't do very much for me if I'm not high
>>
>>61564007
>Soft Bulletin is better than Pet Sounds
well, i preffer the songwritting on ps by far, but soft bulletin does similar stuff with a more modern sounds, some tracks just drag a little and dont feels solid, but i would say soft bulletin has higher highs overrall, but not by far
>tfw feel yourself desintegrate + sleepin on the roof
>tfw lets go away for a while
>>
>>61564058
for me there are no weak tracks in STGSTV or feels unless you are listening to the go, but if you have the time and space both are perfect.
fall be kind is goat dude, perfect combination of feels/person pitch and MPP
>water curses is meh
well yeah, maybe if you arent much of an avey guy, but the record has some of the most atmopheres and textures in catchy pop music
>but songs like Visiting Friends don't do very much for me if I'm not high
just play it laying down with your eyes closed in your bed m9
