Underrated 1995 album by neo-psychedelic art-popsters The Flaming Lips. Described by the band as "a kind of crunchy Beach Boys in outer-space sort of thing." For this recording the "band" consisted of David Fridman sits at the producer/engineer's helm, as he would continue to do on the Lips' following releases. Ronald, who put down some of the best damn noise guitar out there, left after the creation of the album, which put the band into a creative spin that would culminate in the legendary Zaireeka.

The songs range from sad elegies filled with longing to silly fables and joyful tales of not-quite-nonsense. The lyrics are all Wayne's, and the musical credits are split between Steven and Wayne.
