Yeah Wayne, we know, you'll never be able to write another 'Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots pt. 1' or another 'Waitin' for Superman' or another 'She Don't Use Jelly' again. Quit rubbing our noses in it.
The Flaming Lips are Dead. Long Live the Flaming Lips.
I hope Jeff Mangum never comes back to Earth. I hope there's never another NMH record that causes a resurgence of these bands and this kind of music. I say it and I mean it. This shit sounded like music from another time when it was new. I consider 'The Battle of Electricity' to be one of the last gasps of 90's music, of the sincerity and lack of irony that is entirely pre-9/11. I don't miss the music because it's still here; I miss the placidity and the emotional headspace that made it possible for records like this one to rise to the surface because that is gone and it's never coming back.
