  • Opening up with a very epic sounding introduction comprised of interesting instrumentation and a powerful vocal section from Coyne, The Gash soon transitions into a piano-led section before the drums come in to help establish a rhythm for the track
  • After about two and a half minutes, a listener actually hears Coyne’s voice for what it actually sounds like before transitioning back into the more operatic vocal section which I think serves as a nice change to the typical sound of the Flaming Lips

      The Gash is a song by The Flaming Lips which appears on their record The Soft Bulletin. Opening up with a very epic sounding introduction comprised of interesting instrumentation and a powerful vocal section from Coyne, The Gash soon transitions into a piano-led section before the drums come in to help establish a rhythm for the track.

      After about a minute and a half into the track, the main vocals come in and deliver the first verse of the track which


      bears some similarity to the more epic-sounding vocal sections from the introduction, but more practical for a verse thankfully.

      Something that I must just absolutely praise about this track thus far is that the sound has been incredibly full and features both a good amount of music and vocals.

      Whereas another Flaming Lips song I just reviewed, Fight Test, primarily focused on the vocal performance, The Gash has a nice balance of both interesting musical parts and interesting vocal performances.

      After ...


      • about two and a half minutes, a listener actually hears Coyne’s voice for what it actually sounds like before transitioning back into the more operatic vocal section which I think serves as a nice change to the typical sound of the Flaming Lips.

        This more operatic-like section continues on for a bit of time before the track surprisingly comes to its close.

        Although the song itself is a bit over four minutes long, it truly didn’t feel as if I was listening

        to a song that long.

        In fact, the Flaming Lips made it feel like it was a song about half that long which should go to show that a listener probably won’t get bored listening to this track because of the interesting change of sound and tone the Flaming Lips provide throughout this song.

        Overall, I found The Gash to be quite an interesting sounding song and would highly recommend it to any fan of the Flaming Lips or experimental music in general.
