Review: The Flaming Lips – With A Little Help From My Fwends (Warner Music Canada)

Flaming LipsThroughout their career, The Flaming Lips have constantly challenged and redefined the boundaries of the music they make. Here, they team up with a truly diverse range of musicians, including Tegan & Sara, Miley Cyrus, The Autumn Defense and My Morning Jacket to reinterpret one of the greatest albums of all time: The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. At once menacing, intriguing and jarring, these songs are infused by a myriad of special effects yet retain the ideals and arrangements of the original tracks. Approach this record with an open mind and you just might like what you find.
