Flaming Lips | The Soft Bulliten
RfK says the Flaming Lips have a similar musical progression as Pink Floyd- a long, strange career, true artists who stayed true to their visions and became more commercially acceptable with each passing release, getting more mainstream. Pru wrote of The Soft Bulliten, "An amazing album from end to end, the Lips finally made their brilliance apparent to everyone with this 1999 album. A nakedly humane record draped in seemingly surreal elements, the disc made everything old seem new again. It's bizarre, beautiful orchestral pop music, and also the last great pop album of the 1990s."

"The Soft Bulletin" is one of the great albums of that era. A friend made me a tape of it (remember tapes?) for a cross-country move. Awesome friend.
