Summary

Summary

EGO TRIPPING AT THE GATES OF HELL, the second companion EP to the Flaming Lips' acclaimed YOSHIMI BATTLES THE PINK ROBOTS trumps its predecessor, FIGHT TEST, by featuring four previously unreleased songs and three remixes. The first three, sun-themed tunes--"Assassination of the Sun," "I'm a Fly in a Sunbeam (Following the Funeral Procession of a Stranger)," and "Sunship Balloons"--are laid-back, reflective songs that continue in the mellower vein of the YOSHIMI album. The remixes, however, are more upbeat; "Do You Realize (T.P.S. Remix)" and "Ego Tripping (Jason Bentley Remix)" are 1980s-influenced, synth-laden renditions, while "Ego Tripping (Self-Admiration with Blow-Up Mix)" is a study in creative beat-making that utilizes a vocal snippet as percussion. Finally, the Christmas-loving trio offers a Yuletide tune of its own devising, "A Change at Christmas (Say It Isn't So)," complete with jingle bells. Clocking in at more than 30 minutes, EGO TRIPPING is sure to satisfy Flaming Lips fans until the group's next quirky pop masterpiece.
