It's a shame that the shamed head of Donald Trump didn't make the album cover crop. This song is great though. Just the right amount of tension that leads you on into warm water. No explosions, no fireworks, just warm water that slowly crawls up your body to rest underneath your chin.

I was super excited because at first glance I thought the album was called The Life of Potato. In my mind it will always just be called The Life of Potato.

Seriously, he gave us a remix of "Blue Bucket of Gold" and I was so angry when I saw it was less than 15 minutes long. He needs to at least release a live album of these reinterpretations.

I can't wait for someone to ask me who The Flaming Lips are, because that is going to be my answer.

I agree with both of you. Except I have to defend the album Fate as a definite masterwork. Sometimes their songs can be pleasant but forgetful with a collection of standouts, but Fate was top to bottom a fantastic album. Great songs, great sequencing, dynamic range of moods that fit together wonderfully, a consistent mood and theme. Anyone that has ever had any interest in the band and wants to know where to start HAS to pick up Fate.

This group and everyone in it deserve so much more respect and attention than they receive. There are real sparks flying around in every one of these guy's heads.

According to WebMD a "Yezzy" is someone infected with the Yeezy virus, which attaches to the patient's Larynx causing respiratory problems and inflammation of the ego. This condition often leads to delusions of grandeur, irregular outburst of hot air, and erratic behavior eventually leading to a beautiful death by jumping out the window, letting everything go.

Remember when that guy accused Win Butler of stealing his basketball, and it was like a weird online beef for like two weeks? That was weird. I hope that guy eventually got his basketball back.

He has mastered this character. Even his stage movements are perfectly over the top and satirical in a way that you can't tell if he is being serious or not, because they are done too well. It's a beautiful thing.

Oh hey. I forgot all about this. So, in case you are still checking this thread to stroke your throbbing upvote cock. Fuck you. You don't know my life. You call me Glib and Pseudo-intellectual? You and every other asshole in this comment section are making JOKES about child rape. JOKES. And then you try to get up on some moral high horse and call me out for asking questions? Because if we are all so certain that what this asshole did, why the fuck are you making jokes about it for internet points on a music news site. And why is this site posting interviews about this pig for clicks and ad revenue? And why is Huffington Post making a fucking interview that was only there to bait a known child rapist into walking out (She even tells him to). Why? Why? Why are YOU and every asshole on this page, this website and some garbage news site just trying to get their own selfish jollies out of this situation. That was my question. Not the shit you tried to put into my mouth. Take your stupid strawman arguments and idiot internet banter somewhere else. Merry Christmas. I upvoted all of your comments. Enjoy the little tickling feeling the little +1s give you. Oh, and Cheap Suit never loved you.

I am not informed, and I don't really care. But I'm bored. How can we all be so sure that he has done all of these awful things people are talking about, without it having been proven in court and resulting with him behind bars?

I can agree to that. I was the biggest opponent of Merriweather when it came out, just for that reason. Everyone was talking about how it was the new Pet Sounds and ridiculous things like that, and it just turned me off, because it was nothing more than a fun collection of songs, and I don't believe the band had any intention to create something different than that. So, I had to get beyond the majority of Animal Collective's fans, at the time, in order to enjoy the album for what it was, at that time. My claim at the time was that everyone's love for the album was really a love for "My Girls" as a single. Everyone loved that song and was accepting the rest along with it. I feel slightly vindicated now that my claims have come true. I just checked Last.fm and "My Girls" has 2 plays for every one play of the next most listened to song. People still love Merriweather, but mostly it's that one song that the rest of the album orbits around like the rings of Saturn. This is, by the way, also the case with Dirty Projector's Bitte Orca. Which is basically just a container for "Stillness is the Move". This isn't a rigorous study however. I should really do a full analysis to find out which highly celebrated albums in the past 10 years have very low album plays and very high singles plays.

I also enjoyed much of Centipede. But it was super exhausting almost immediately. The pacing was just wrong. It was a comic book and you couldn't pause to take a sip of your Hi-C. Just action after action after action ontop of action. So murky. So many layers. I believe the album was actually designed to reminisce on the nostalgic sound of an arcade, where all of the machines were playing their songs and noises simultaneously over top of one another. And you could walk around the room placing your head next to each of them in turn and get a different experience. It was a glorious time, and I miss those filthy carpets and gaudy Ms. Pac-Man and Centipede machines. But I can't listen to them for an hour without getting sick to my stomach. Hidden beneath this noise are some truly great songs though. So, I still listen to it often in small bites.
