The Flaming Lips ‘Peace Sword’ Album Review

This six-song EP sounds like a warm cocoon shedding itself. The title track – a very Lips-ish slice of made-of-stars melody and Wayne Coyne’s voice multitracked to infinity – was written for the film version of the classic science-fiction novel Ender’s Game. But since no prog act worth its stash turns down a chance to be inspired by sci-fi, the Lips secreted five more clouds – tunes “inspired by” the movie, including the vaguely martial “If They Move, Shoot ‘Em” and the wonderfully titled 10-minute “Assassin Beetle – the Dream Is Ending.” Also, the lyrics may have plot spoilers: In the immortal words of Public Enemy, consider yourself…warned!
