The Soft Bulletin edges out, At War with the Mystics.

I really should get round to listening to some of the earlier stuff, but I doubt it'll be as good as The Soft Bulletin.
Unless you know better...

Transmissions From The Satellite Heart was their breakthrough album which you don't seem to have heard.

My favourite Flaming Lips album has always been In A Priest Driven Ambulance.

It's a lot less laid back than their current stuff.

It;s kinda like their earlier noisy albums but more commercial and with better songwriting.

Ok, maybe not - but I'm evenly split between it & Soft Bulletin, Yoshimi, & Hit to Death in the Future Head.

It was re-released as The Day We Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg.

Same album , but with a load of extras. Try looking for that instead.
