Album: The Terror
Artist: The Flaming Lips


Wayne Coyne and the gang have done it again. They keep reinventing themselves, making sure they stay relevant. After close to 30 years as a band, they’re actually getting better. Known for catchy songs like ” She Dont Use Jelly” and the “Do You Realize?” anthem , the Flaming Lips went the minimalist route on their newest release, The Terror.

Normally they take the freaky, alternative and silly road. But here they rely on sonic noises, ring tones, keyboards and Wayne’s (lead singer) passionate yet dark vocals to make everyone question their life. Are we alone? How much beauty is left in the world? Find out for yourself below:
