Product Description

Product Description

The final pre-major label album from The Flaming Lips brought a huge shift in sound that would define their work over the greater part of the next decade. The first album to feature Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue on guitar, In A Priest Driven Ambulance features more structured songwriting and tighter production. The lyrical wit and insight of Wayne Coyne had never been better as his obsession with religous imagery moved to the forefront. Features 'Unconsciously Screamin', 'Rainin Babies' and 'God Walks Among Us Now'. Deluxe 2 LP reissue on red vinyl. Plain Recordings. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Early Stuff April 23 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to the Flaming Lips quite a bit ever since "She Don't Use Jelly" became a semi-hit a while back. I just recently heard this album for the first time and I'll have to say I'm incredibly impressed and wish I had gotten this a long time ago. The sound on this album is very different from what they sound like now. It's very much a guitar-based sound and the Brian Wilson and 60's pop influences that really came through on their later stuff like "Clouds Taste Metallic" have yet to appear. Yet, this album is startlingly original; there isn't any other band that they really remotely sound like. The songs are all great, especially "God Walks Among Us" and "Mountain Side", two particularly caustic tracks that are incredibly catchy as well. "Mountain Side" in particular gets me; midway through it goes off into this noise breakdown for a few minutes only to go right back into the song again. To top it all off, the album ends with a great, unexpected cover of "What a Wonderful World". How can you get much better than this?

5.0 out of 5 stars Paisley Licorice Screamhead Nov. 22 2001
Format:Audio CD
A transitional record for the Flaming lips, bridging the manic, eclectic psonic pspew of the 1st 3 releases & the more user-friendly major label output. The sonic barrage of "God Walks Among Us Now" and "Lucifer Rising" is balanced with the Zeppelin-meets-Neil-Young melodicism of "There You Are" and the memorable thump of "Take Me Ta Mars". Their ability to mix out-and-out WIERD with utterly compelling & accessible still confounds known natural laws to this day. This is where the zygote of what was to become today's Flaming Lips can be viewed, grinning.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 'Lips first Masterpiece March 25 2000
Format:Audio CD
I'm a longtime fan of the Flaming Lips first of all, and as such, I find all of their albums to be wonderful. However, this album (in my opinion) is their very first Masterpiece! The albums that preceeded this one are fine albums true, but this was the first one where I feel they fully realized their potential. This is a gorgeous album both lyrically, melodically, and of course it's tempered with fine dissonance. If you are just getting into the Flaming Lips and want to pick up their back catalogue, this is the true gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars an amazing album Sept. 8 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this is actually the album that got me back into the flaming lips. it's really just fine, every song is wonderful and different and GOOD. lots of jesus/god songs, that really have nothing to do with jesus or god, as far as i can tell. i've never heard the american release, the one with the bonus tracks stuck right in the middle of the album, but i know that the ten tracks i have are among the flaming lips best. this album would be worth it on the merit of any of the single songs alone. buy it.
