10 Years Ago Today: The Flaming Lips release "The Soft Bulletin"...
10.0 out of 10.0
Perhaps the decade's most aptly titled album, 'The Soft Bulletin' is just that: a state-of-the- universe report treating everything from immunology to astrophysics in the barest, almost childlike terms, and ultimately a sweeping meditation on love, death and humanity set to lush lysergic symphonics. Like 'Magical Mystery Tour' a generation before it, 'The Soft Bulletin' confronts horror and absurdity with bright orchestral pop and pristine psychedelia. A century of science and war is resolved in a deep blue wave of guitar reverb.
