  • Though the first verse (And all the verses for that matter) has a very simple melody and is just simple overall, I must say that I definitely enjoy the simplicity of it and the Flaming Lips manage to have a great sound for very little
  • In my opinion, this is probably the most accessible track on At War With The Mystics and is certainly worth listening to

      It Overtakes Me is a song by the Flaming Lips which appears on their album At War With The Mystics. Right from the beginning of the track, you can tell The Flaming Lips certainly have their own unique sound on the track. The song opens up with a very unique bass rhythm which is fairly prominent throughout most of the song. Though the first verse (And all the verses for that matter) has a very simple melody and is just simple overall, I

      must say that I definitely enjoy the simplicity of it and the Flaming Lips manage to have a great sound for very little.

      As the song progresses, the band continues on with a very experimental sound and although the song is accessible, it’s certainly clear that psychedelic influences can definitely be heard on this track. In fact, while listening to quite a few parts of this track, it sounds almost as if the track could be categorized as being space rock and I’m definitely reminded ...


      • of some of Pink Floyd’s early work with Syd Barrett from this song. Although I personally enjoy the track, I should mention that if you find that you’re not enjoying the track after a few minutes, then I would just stop listening as the song basically continues on in a very similar fashion throughout its duration.

        Despite this, and this is one of the great strengths of the song, the track is able to keep from getting monotonous due to spacious breaks in between parts

        where you get more of an experimental sound and feel from the Flaming Lips. Though the vocal sections are pretty poppy in nature and fairly conventional (Though nothing the Flaming Lips does is genuinely conventional), these instrumental breaks throughout the song allow a listener a glimpse more into the sound the Flaming Lips generally have with a very psychedelic and experimental groove. In my opinion, this is probably the most accessible track on At War With The Mystics and is certainly worth listening to.
