They are not really famous in Germany, and (even I...) do not really know much of their music.

I don't really care for this album, but their others are fantastic. Also, if you have the chance to see these guys live, do so.

Love it!  Went to the Jodrell Bank show, which was the most immense gig I've been to.  Love the Lips!  Be good to hear something from Hit To Death In The Future Head tho!

Ziggytrix, I am glad you said that!  I am VERY guilty of doing this - feeling compelled to "correct" people about who "came first."

Who came first?  The primordial ooze came first.  Whew, so glad THAT'S settled... =o)

Can't someone just comment that two things sound similar without accusing one of taking something from the other?

Personally, I don't hear this as sounding all that similar to Perry Farrell's vocals at all.  There is a vaguely similar vocal reverb effect, but adding effects to vocals wasn't invented by either of these bands. *shrug*  Maybe I'm just not thinking of the right JA song.

Their album covers are always engaging, and apparently their music isn't for everyone.  Well, those folks will always have their classic rock to listen to.

Agree on both counts. And for me, "interesting" = "meh" so it averages out to a 5.

Had to walk downstairs to my computer and rate this "sucko barfo" - very appropriate rating level when I hear this kind of crap . . . er, I mean, when I don't appreciate someone else's taste in music (forgot I was Canadian there for a moment).

Normally I hate the FL, but his voice isn't so annoying in this one. Maybe it's the fact that his voice is so affected as to be almost unrecognizable...{#Ask}

I agree 100%.  Pounding, thumping, bass driven genius!  Saw them do this live in November last year and did much wigging out like a nutter!Turn it up to 11!

Interesting article on these guys in current SPIN mag.  I never knew this but one time they released an album that had four CD's, and you had to play them all simultaneously on four different CD players.  Now that is saying "FU" to your record label, gotta love it.
 
Zaireeka is that album.

You need at least four ____(plural noun)____ and ____(a place)____ to enjoy it properly.*

plural noun suggestions:
1. boomboxes
2. cars with loud stereos
3. club soundsystems

place suggestion:
1. a deserted level of a parking deck
2. an open field in the middle of nowhere 
3. an empty warehouse

* this is only a recommendation

Sooo good to have the boys back into their downright odd future-punk selves. Although Sparklehorse Danger Mouse is still counted among the out-there, no, way out-there mashers with the possibly the best name in rock. My 2 cents.
