music review

The Flaming Lips
At War with the Mystics
* * *
The Flaming Lips have been everything in thier 20 year existence, this may be the first time they haven't been exciting. The album's first 5 tracks are solid, and then the album seems to dissolve to some forgetable instrumental numbers, and mellower tracks. For an album that was supposed to be angry, it ends up perhaps their most dilluted in years. That doesn't mean there's some great moments on the disc, and a few good songs, but overall it's a mild dissapointment.
