#37 – The Flaming Lips – “Oczy Mlody” – 52 Weeks of 2017 Albums

Their first album in three years since re-imagining The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper with a motley crew of freaks and fwends, Oczy Mlody is the 14th Flaming Lips studio album and 20th overall in a career spanning 34 years since their inception in 1983 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Best described as an atmospheric symphony of chill, Oczy Mlody is more an elaborate musical composition for full band in 12 movements than a mere collection of songs presented over two sides of a standard rock n roll album. Imagine the HAL 9000 computer from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001:  A Space Odyssey attempting to decipher the Dark Side Of The Moon without rise or crescendo building solely upon a bleak emotional landscape of enveloping sound. An album that boldly states, “There should be unicorns!”, this is certainly music to listen to while hunting for faeries and witches and wizards to kill when your not too busy listening to the frogs with demon eyes.
