Red album had a few decent tracks. The rest were WHAT THE FUCK RIVERS.
After his take on an anti-drug song, I just really had enough of him. Really, honestly, truly, completely done. For those of you keeping score, that was off of Make Believe.
The samples I'm hearing of the Flaming Lips album sound pretty good, though my favorite song is Silver Trembling Hands because it switches up the noise with that casual off-beat soft rock sound that's been popular as of late.
I like interesting percussion, but some of the acid sounds on Embryonic seem recycled from song to song. Maybe that's just me being an amateur at guitar tones.
Heads up for potential late album of the year winners, consider that the new Atlas Sound AND Fuck Buttons albums come out within the next seven days! *excited*
Also, not sure if anyone else heard it, but the debut album from Neon Indian is a potential winner too. Pitchfork summed it up best when saying it's like a mix of Deerhunter and M83.. or something like that.
