5.0 out of 5 stars The Flaming Lips take chances...Luckily March 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Flaming Lips seem like a sort of morphous brilliance that has sporadic outputs of utter genius. This album is exquisite as it is rockish but also shuns the alternative sound by being quirky and rejecting the easy way. From the redundant, incongruent sound on the first track, I knew the album was a masterpiece. Their refusal to allow the song to be just another Dinosaur Jrish alternative ditty, they interject this annoying sound which does nothing to enhance the sound but at first is quite annoying. But to listen the Lips a lot is to understand this. In a sort of smarter Pavementish way they dont take themselves too seriously, but yet create such brilliant moments that are brilliant in there irony. The rest of the album is an echo of the first track. An equivocating voice coupled with layered instruments makes this a intensely delicious listening experience. Except for gingerale afternoon this album shines from beginning to end...

5.0 out of 5 stars Expected a fairly good album, got a masterpiece. Feb. 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Flaming Lips have continued to amaze me ever since I was introduced to "The Soft Bulletin" about 6 months ago. What makes the lips a truly great band is that they progress immensely on each disc and yet, all of them are still genius. "Hit to Death in the Future Head" is no exception Every song is great, but standouts include "Felt Good to Burn", which has a mellow-goldish vibe and especially heavy lyrics for a lips song ("All summer long we refused to die
We just slept and f****d and got high
And all we'd steal. We lit up on the Ferris wheel"), and "You Have to Be Joking". After giving this album a couple listens, I immediately ordered "In a Priest Driven Ambulance" and "Telepathic Surgery". I'll probably eventually buy their debut and "Oh my gawd!" as well. (knowing the lips, I'll love them all)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great album, one of the band's best. Oct. 23 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Flaming Lips, hands down the best band I personally think the world has to offer, had really done an amazing job with this album. Hit to Death in the Future Head is a beauty, with all kinds of creative sounds never heard before. Funny, because Wayne Coyne said this album is still "a bit of a mess really", but overall, "very fun to make". The result, in my [humble?] opinion, was a masterpiece. Talkin' About the Smilin' Deathporn Immortality Blues (Everyones Wants to Live Forever), is an amazingly creative and fast-paced rock song, and as if the title didn't say it all. Gingerale Afternoon (The Astrology of a Saturday) and The Magician VS. the Headache are very well done fast paced paced songs as well, with some amazing guitar work. The Flaming Lips have amazing sound. This album demonstrates what they do best.

5.0 out of 5 stars smiling deathporn blues Aug. 8 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If The Jesus and Mary Chain grew up in OK instead of the UK this is the type of music they'd be putting out. Wayne Coyne and Co. sound like they're having the time of their lives putting this album together and you will to when you take a listen. Definite whistle along, stuck in your head, thumping your steering wheel classic is "Gingerale Afternoon (Astrology of a Saturday). "Halloweeen on the Barbary Coast" is a wonderful sprawling track that forshadows the epic numbers from their last two albums. The Lips are one of those rare bands that have been able to consistently put out music that is in touch with the times and forshadows things to come. Save your Flaming Lips albums for Gawd's sake! Your children will thank you because it will probably take that long for the rest of the world to realize what they missed out on.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best album of the nineties!!! March 14 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
the flaming lips have done it again. they have created the most artistic album lyrically and musically. this is by far the best album of the nineties. the album starts off with the tour-de-force sound of " Talkin' Bout The Smiling Deathporn Immortality Blues (Everyone Wants To Live Forever)" and never slows down. "Hit to Death In the Future Head" is a cacophony of acid-psychedelia style pop with the strong points of the album being songs like "Hold your Head", "Frogs", and "Gingerale Afternoon (Astrology of a Saturday). This album is a must have in any flaming lips's fan collection and is a great album to buy for people who are willing to explore the dimension that is the flaming lips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative Best Jan. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is to me the most creative and expansive album the band has released to date. The album summoned up a sence of creativity that opened the door for a new and original view. From the Dream Pop to the psychedelic majority of the album, it creates a panorama effect. The album is like a kalleidescope as layers upon layers of sound make for a new listen each time. New parts throughout the mix seem to appear from the already discovered sounds. The wonderful songs, creativity and feel make this an outstanding piece.
P.S.-they should drop the PA sticker... it's almost senseless to be there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully bizarre album. Sept. 28 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Though not as catchy or fully-realized as later albums like "The Soft Bulletin" or "Clouds Taste Metallic," "Hit to Death in the Future Head" is a must-own. Bridging the gap between the ragged guitar madness of their previous albums and the pop mastery they'd later exhibit, the Lips (which at this point included Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev) write beautiful melodies, and then bury them beneath layers of gnashing guitars, used to best effect on "Frogs" and "Hit Me Like You Did the First Time." It's good, noisy, psychedelic fun. -Chris Willie Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars The good ole Lips
This album has the best Lips sound. The classic sound. Squelchy guitars, backwords strings, and just general all around weirdness that forms a melody. Read more
