Overview

Christmas on Mars might be the Flaming Lips' sci-fi epic, but Embryonic is the musical equivalent of 2001: A Space Odyssey's final scenes: transformative chaos resulting in a new start. Embryonic is the loudest the Lips have been in years, boasting a strangely liquid yet abrasive swirl of sounds. "Aquarius Sabotage" opens with fuzz bass and keyboards so chaotic, it isn't just free jazz, it's free-for-all jazz, albeit balanced by the vocodered loveliness of "The Impulse." Wayne Coyne often sounds like he's singing from another dimension, musing on humankind's frailty with the wonder of an alien or a newborn. Little about Embryonic is clear-cut or straightforward, but these very qualities make the album haunting and intriguing. [The album was also released with a bonus DVD.]
