The Flaming Lips - The Terror (2013)
After 2009's rather disappointing "Embyro," The Flaming Lips  have returned with what is one of the best albums of their career. Always unpredictable, "The Terror" sees the band further developing some of the sounds they had previously dabbled in on "Yoshimi." It's a very laid back, spacey album that wears its Krautrock influences on its sleeve. It's also quite a beautiful album that takes multiple listens to absorb. It may not have the over-the-top ambition of "Yoshimi" or "At War With the Mystics," but it's still a unique and excellent addition to the band's discography and further cements their position as one of the best modern psychedelic bands around.
