After the debut, the band decided to expand their creativity and this album was what slowly began to open the door for this. Dropping the more gritty, bluesy, punk sounds that was found in places on "Hear It Is" they adapted Art/Progressive rock and began seriously using atmospheric effects... reverb,echo, acoustic guitars, backward loops, and other sounds from various effects or electric guitar flow about through this album and create textures very new and almost uncompomisingly different from most late '80's indie music, retreating to a psychedelic idealism and experimental attitude. They also were growing longer hair, dressed, and were more refered to as hippies... but for the album... songs of life,love,joy and visions from Wayne Coyne's perception create a great album.

After the Lips' not-bad-but-pretty-blah debut album Hear It Is, Wayne and the gang took a huge 180 degree turn from their debut album "Here It Is" and unleashed their sophomore effort "Oh My Gawd!" the next year. And the title says it all, as this probably goes down as the Lips' silliest and craziest album. One look at the album cover (front and back) should let you know you're in for a trip, as you see a collage of skull-monsters, landscapes, a man burning up, a scary sneering old lady, and the list goes on.
The Lips dropped the brooding mellowness of Hear It Is and totally let loose, resulting in such masterpieces as the 10-minute plus mind-trip epic "One Million Billionth On A Sunday Morning", the country-tinged acid rocker "Prescription: Love", the bizaare "Ode To C.C. Part 1" and Ode To C.C. Part 2", and the ending of the tender love ballad "Love Yer Brain", where a piano and what sounds like all the guitars being smashed to a pulp. Priceless stuff.
To further add to the eclectic-ness, either Richard English or Mike Ivins (I'm not sure who) sing lead vocals on "Thanks To You" and "Can't Exist". It's actually a good singing voice, but wouldn't show up on any other album. If you choose to get only one Lips album, and can't handle the seriousness of The Soft Bulletin, get Oh My Gawd!!! and take a trip with the Lips. You'll never want to come back.

After the release of "Hear It Is" (preceded by their eponymous debut EP), the Flaming Lips spent a while on the road, honing their chops and composing and tightening up the material that would comprise their follow-up. As such, "Oh My Gawd!" thoroughly delivers on the promises made on the first two records - and then some. The songs are more cohesive, the playing is tighter, and the direction, if you can call it that, is considerably more focused. Right off the bat, "Everything's Explodin'" sets the tone for the record with lyrics like, "Boy, you're so loud that you could wake the dead, and some of the living, they're waking, too." Tongue in cheek, perhaps, but accurate; almost everything here expands on the themes on "Hear," from the Pink Floyd-isms of "One Million Billionth of a Millisecond On A Sunday Morning" to the piano-smashing (literally) and Beatles tape-loop of "Love Yer Brain." That, and everything in between, shows a band interested in growing and building on their previous work. "Oh My Gawd!" isn't the ultimate achievement for the Flaming Lips, but it is the next evolutionary step for a rock group already obviously unique in a sea of sameness. The Lips make music for the Lips first, but are happy when anyone else gets the joke; as they put it in "Explodin,'" "If you don't like it, write your own song."

This album is worth the price of admission just for the final song, Love Yer Brain, and the shocking ending. Perscription: Love is another keeper. And so is The Ceiling is Bending. And also the ten minute epic One Million Billionth of a Millisecond of a Sunday Morning...
