The Flaming Lips - Fight Test (CD, 2003)

This is the only Flaming Lips CD I own. It's a promo version of this EP, and I know I didn't pay for it. I used to have Transmissions from the Satellite Heart on cassette, but it's gone now. That's OK; I didn't really like it anyway. I don't really like this CD, either. I liked The Soft Bulletin for a little while, but not that long. I don't really like The Flaming Lips. I realized that while I listened to this today.

I know. I'm not cool.

They cover Beck's "The Golden Age" on this EP, and it's not good. There's also a nine-minute techno/dancy remix of "Do You Realize??" that would be totally sweet if I were someone who liked shitty music. And "Thank You Jack White (For the Fiber-Optic Jesus That You Gave Me)"? It's every bit the name-dropping self-indulgent toss-off that the title indicates.

Wow. Not only do I not like The Flaming Lips, I'm realizing now that they piss me off. That is odd.

"Fight Test"
