The Flaming Lips At War With The Mystics 180g 2LP
Half-Speed Mastered by Stan Ricker!
2007 Grammy Award Winner for Rock Instrumental Performance (The Wizard Turns On...) and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical!
Cosmic, consciousness-expanding and mind-shattering, At War With The Mystics,
the highly anticipated followup to The Flaming Lips’ Yoshimi Battles The Pink
Robots brings together the expressiveness of recent albums with the heaviness,
volume and intensity of the band’s earlier work. At War With The Mystics is
personal, political, psychedelic and powerful pop.
After lauded indie albums, The Flaming Lips debuted on Warner Bros. in 1991 with the masterful Hit To Death In The Future Head. In 1994, “She Don’t Use Jelly” from Transmissions From The Satellite Heart became an unlikely pop hit. Clouds Taste Metallic (1995) led to a year of touring. 1999’s The Soft Bulletin topped an avalanche of year-end Best Of lists and helped rank the band among the most influential in the world. 2002’s Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots became The Flaming Lips’ best-selling and most widely acclaimed album, ranked #4 in Spin and #11 in NME on their end-of-year lists, and with one track winning a Grammy® for Best Rock Instrumental.
