Hardly party music, but remember Dark Side of the Moon? Pass the bong. This is some good shit

Tiny Mix Tapes

The Soft Bulletin is absolutely stunning. Zaireeka was a massive breakthrough for them, but Soft Bulletin is the true gem in their catalog.

AllMusic

There's no telling where the Lips will go from here, but it's almost beside the point -- not just the best album of 1999, The Soft Bulletin might be the best record of the entire decade.

NME

'The Soft Bulletin' is a joyous, celestial celebration of sound. Rhythmic and piano-laden, it's heavenly in both its conception and execution.

Spin

The Soft Bulletin may be the most extraordinary rock record you'll hear all year.

Rolling Stone
Their music isn't, how you say, universally accessible, and the weirdness gets same-y, but no one else has posited a parallel universe in which the Sixties and the Nineties exist simultaneously, allowing for a peculiarly convincing brand of monolithic robotic swirl.

A solid album that helped define their sound and break out as one of the most important psychedelic acts of the modern age. I know this is what made these guys legendary, but I could never say this is their best.
