This is my favourite Flaming Lips record. It's just so fucking intense and aggressive in its sound. The production is both masterful and sloppy. It seems to have been given a very rough, unfinished kind of sound. But it's totally intentional and this makes it all the better. Honestly, if you have a high end hi-fi, don't play this record through that. The more detail you can hear in the sound, the worse the listening experience is. Play it through something basic, but loud. I think it sounds much better this way.

And when you get to the final track, 'Watching the Planets'. Turn it up all the way. Because that song is the soundtrack to the fucking apocalypse!!

Vinyl sounds great to me. Although it lacks the "special" feeling that all albums that came before had. I have a feeling that this was the first Flaming Lips vinyl release that didn't get a dedicated vinyl mastering. I have original pressings all the way back to "Transmissions.." and every album up through "At War With the Mystics" just simply sounds better on vinyl. I'm not saying Embryonic sounds worse on vinyl, I'm just saying it's nothing special. It just doesn't have that same depth that previous albums have.

As for the album itself, this is quite possibly one of the greatest Flaming Lips albums ever recorded. I put this above "At War With the Mystics" and "Yoshimi".
