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 smiling deathporn blues Aug. 9 2003

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 Best Lips Album of the Early 90's! April 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
This and Priest Driven Ambulance, although I perfer this one much more. It's an incredible, psychedelic experience, and an essential album for all Lips fans. If you've yet to hear it, you've yet to live! :)

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 pocket full of capsules and chocolate icecream Feb. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
"hit" is my 2nd favourite lips album and clearly the best production-wise. its chaotic noise-pop, like "magical mystery tour" beatles and jesus and mary chain making a album. it makes me think of disney world for some reason? "felt good to burn" sounds like listening to the beach boys on acid. "hold your head" is a triumphant pink floyd-esque song that really closes the album more than perfectly. the album is VERY psychadelic and once you've heard it, i trust you'll sell your copies of "the soft bulletin" and "yoshimi". its ok and yes, those 2 albums are ...

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.

This album.. what can i say, from the first track to the last you are bombarded with sound that only a band that knows what they are and what the people want could create. Listening to this album makes you feel as if your in the studio helping to mix this masterpiece. Most novice music lovers know the Lips from their only hit single "She Dont Use Jelly", but let me tell you there's more than enough "Jelly" to spread accross a whole loaf of bread on this album. stop reading and buy it!
