  • In my opinion, if this section had been cut then the band could’ve certainly helped cut down the track length and also could have interested Coyne’s voice to the track earlier which would make it easier to hold a listener’s attention
  • Although this song does make for somewhat of an enjoyable listen, the biggest issue with this song is that it seems to have a disjointed introduction which goes on for several minutes and then finally the section actually feature Coyne’s vocal performance
  • The problem here is that a listener is first subject to about four and a half minutes of music (Some of which could have been easily cut) before actually getting into the bulk of the song which seems to come in too late
  • Nevertheless, the parts are somewhat solid and although I wouldn’t consider this as good as several of the preceding songs, it’s not terrible

      Prescription: Love is a song by the Flaming Lips and the seventh track on their sophomore release, Oh My Gawd. Opening up with a quick percussive rhythm, the bass guitar joins the mix and the band does a good job of establishing a groove in the song right from the start.

      As the guitars enter the mix, the song takes on a far more aggressive tone, but it also seems to carry somewhat of a more confusing sound.

      Personally, I


      would’ve been interested in the direction that the drums and bass were going in, but I can’t say that the song lacks character.

      Although this opening really goes on for a long time and gives the impression that the song will be an instrumental.

      Coyne does eventually join in the mix with his vocals after about four and a half minutes.

      I should mention that for about two minutes before he comes, the band really does alter the flow of ...
