  • Whereas I thought that Coyne’s vocal sound throughout all of the preceding song, Mountain Side, just felt completely out of place, I can thankfully say that he sounds much more at home on a song like this
  • Though a slightly odd selection for a cover song, the band does a good job throughout and they vary the dynamics of the track several times to keep it interesting

      (What A) Wonderful World is a song by The Flaming Lips and the tenth song on their fourth release, In A Priest Driven Ambulance. Opening up with a melodic guitar pattern, Coyne comes in with the iconic vocal melody for this cover in a slightly broken manner which works nicely with the somewhat downbeat sound the guitars establish.

      Mountain Side, just felt completely out of place, I can thankfully say that he sounds much more at home on a song like this.

      Although the track starts out fairly empty, the rest of the band joins in a bit after a minute in, but they don’t push for an aggressive extreme as they did on the preceding track which is a good sign.

      In addition, another positive aspect of this ...


      • track is that the instrumental bridge throughout this song feels the right amount of time and it also has an enjoyable track.

        Because this is a cover, I’m restricting from really commenting on the songwriting, but in terms of performance and sound I would say that the Flaming Lips do a good job with this cover.

        and they vary the dynamics of the track several times to keep it interesting.

        In addition, when they vary the dynamics on this track I actually feel like the parts still maintain their cohesiveness and the song as a whole doesn’t suffer which is a flaw I felt some preceding tracks had.

        Overall, the Flaming Lips come out with a solid cover here and this is certainly a track to look into.
