    Still testing boundaries...

    Let me first say that I love the Flaming Lips... I do... and I love the Beatles. And I thought that this album would be the a perfect marriage between the two. There are definitely some great moments, but the album is very harsh at times, very soft at times, and very overwhelming at times which makes this album very difficult to listen to while doing anything other than just listening to this album. I know that The Lips are experimental at times, but I wish they had dialed it back a bit, like a Soft Bulletin or Yoshimi or Clouds Taste Metallic take on this album instead of a Zaireeka version. That being said there are some very interesting moments and I enjoyed hearing the guest artists that appear on the album.

    Hard to beat the original, but this is a fun reworking. It has interesting versions by some accompanying artists that I haven't heard of, but none that are distasteful. Despite the modern sound with samples and such, many of the songs are surprisingly faithful to the original. I have been a long term Flaming Lips fan, and enjoy their offbeat take on this classic. Warning, some of the accompanying pictures in the CD are sexually graphic, not for children.

    I love how the Flaming Lips defy logic with a great cover of an album from The Beatles. Lucy in the Sky is probably my favorite track of the entire record. That crash that comes throughout makes it seem like the world is coming to an end!

    As a Flaming Lips fan you begin to expect different takes on songs you already know, but some of these takes are a little too out there. Okay effort, but would rather hear some new original material.

    Most of the versions are worth a listen..Some however are an embarrassment both to the Flaming Lips and to The Beatles
