The Flaming Lips - Love Yer Brain (Song)
  • As the vocals enter the mix, I will admit that I took a little bit of time to get used to them, but I think that they work nicely with the piano and I like how the other instruments, particularly the bass and acoustic guitar, are entering the mix gradually
  • Throughout the first half of the song, I think that the band does an excellent job of establishing and maintaining an incredibly melodic and developed sound (A lot of this thanks to the piano throughout the track), but I’m curious how they expect to keep this interesting for the remaining half
  • Unfortunately, the band decide to take a far more obscure approach to the second half of the track and it’s primarily made up of random percussion and yelling which highly contrasts with the sound established throughout the first half of the track
  • Despite this, I will not dispute that the writing and performance throughout the first half of this song is enjoyable to say the least and definitely makes me hopeful for the next record
  • Although the very end of this track is a pretty poor way to the end the song, (And this flaw becomes worse since this is the end of the record), I still find the first half to be enjoyable and would recommend at least listening to that part
