Rarely do bands put out a single or ep with even one good exclusive track. The Lips have included three, the first three on this ep, and they are all thematically related to the sun. The sun trilogy songs are just as melodic, memorable, and sonically full of adventure as recent Lips material has been. The remixes are only of peripheral amusement, and the Christmas song is a great attempt at profundity, and even if it doesn't quite get there melodically, it's decent enough. You'd be hard pressed to spend less money and get more quality tracks than this charming ep. Here's hoping Christmas On Mars and their next proper album will continue the sonic exploration.
