Experimental, even by The Flaming Lips standards, the band's third album is a glorious and mind expanding mix of heavily effected guitar solos, backwards recordings and surrealistic imagery. Again, the classic song titles keep coming with 'Chrome Plated Suicide', 'Hari-Krishna Stomp Wagon (Fuck Led Zeppelin)', and 'Drug Machine in Heaven'. Telepathic Surgery became a big influence on many bands such as Mercury Rev and Beck to Grandaddy and The Olivia Tremor Control. Deluxe 2 LP re-issue on blue vinyl. Includes bonus track 'Hell's Angels Cracker Factory' (23 minute long version) on Side 3, with etched image on Side 4. Plain Recordings. 2005.
