I had never of The Flaming Lips before yesterday. A used CD store was playing "Yoshimi" and I found myself really enjoying the songs. So I asked the people at the register who it was and they handed me the CD, which I bought without hesitation.
I've played it over and over since then and I like the music even more than the first time. "Flight Test" is contagious. It grooves, yet retains a beatiful melody and poignant lyrics. The title track is also one of my favorites--another infectious (and hilarious) groove.
The album has it's soft side, as well. "In the Morning of the Magicians," "Ego Tripping, "One More Robot," and "All We Have Is Now" are quite hypnotic and smack a bit of Pink Floyd. The more upbeat songs reminded me the the later Beatles material, which is a pretty solid endorsement.
I don't think "Do You Realize??" is close to the best track, even though it's featured on the little sticker affixed to the CD cover. It's okay, but the others are better.
Overall, "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" is a fresh, strong album--easy to listen to and even easier to recommend!

Format: LP Record
The Flaming Lips have always been comfortable with remaining just outside the trappings of mainstream music. They have successfully carved out a kind of fringe career making confectionery pop music infused with an electronic sensibility. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is the finest example of these sensibilities and possibly one the few truly great albums to come out of this decade. With infinite replay-ability the album belies it's upbeat veneer with an undercurrent of very real emotional philosophy. The record ranked on a number of greatest albums lists over the course of the last decade and with good reason, it's a singularly unique musical experience from a very gifted band who have allowed popular culture to influence but not dictate their unique sound or essence.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots by Flaming Lips
what can i say one of my favorite bands. great guitars and arrangements. If you don't know who they are this is the album to get for your introduction. nice little riffs throughout. I think a good addition to your collection. check out good rockinroll

With its delusions of grandeur, its original computer-generated atmospherics and its haunting lyrics, 'Yoshimi'' strikes with songs that treat of mortality, love, pacifism and melancholy in a strange yet beautiful way. I would say this is a must for every Lips fan, and the best album to introduce someone to them. Their best along with the Soft Bulletin!!

I don't feel like I should like it... but I do. Tongue in cheek approach but with some beautiful lyrics. Lead singer's voice is an acquired taste. And if you can find the CD "Fight Test" with "Thank You Jack White (for the Fiber Optic Jesus that You Gave Me)", don't hesitate - it has some interesting remixes and suprises.

I absolutely love this cd... It's at least 4 Gold Star material...
->Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell
my fave song/title on it
My friend gave me a copy and as they say better late than never... The music is superb and the lyrics are eccentrically interesting... As well as the vocals smooth nicely over the music...
Pick it up and give it a try... You'll like it even if your name isn't Mikey - a Flaming Fan - Savannah Skye...

wow. ok,i can't say this is my favorite band... but i love listening to this cd... and i lost the damn thing. but till i can scrape up some money to buy it again, i just keep listening to the 30 second samples on amazon. yeah i know pathetic. when i first heard flaming lips, i was really suprised at how unique their music was. some of there songs remind me of an addictive video game beat you can't get out of your head while others are more melodic... the weird thing about this cd is that i can put it on low and go to sleep with it on or put it on high and get all "pumped up". the only other cd i've heard from the flaming lips is soft bulletin which is good too but in no way does it compare to yoshimi battles the pink robots. my favorite song is "yoshimi battles the pink robot part 2" i think it's called (sorry, remember i haven't listened to the cd in a while)i love it when yoshimi screams at the top of her lungs... i get chills all over... get it or regret it
