Took a few listens.....
By S. Leestack
At first the production seemed a bit dated, but it grew on me after a few listens. Been playing it nonstop ever since. Refreshing change since the last three MR records were somewhat similar. If you like the last few Flaming Lips albums, you'll like this.
Beautiful and Epic
wonderful textures and sounds. they show their true colors with this album. If you enjoy psychedelic music, this is a must have. Mercury Rev shines on!

Is there an explicit version available?
Sounds like the same keyboard=i need more texture;-)Ease up on the metrosexual vibe please.Nothing like the Flips...I like October Sunshine and am a big fan of some of theire past work.

I've been a fan since the beginning. They've outdone themselves, which says a lot. I like to listen to Butterfly's Wing with my eyes closed, relax and let it roll.
MERCURY REV ARE SELF MASTERS
THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A CROSSING OF THE STYLINGS BETWEEN THIS BAND AND ANOTHER HUGE CREDIBLE INDIE BAND. (FIGURE IT OUT). MERCURY REV ALWAYS SEEMS TO CAPTURE INTEGRITY MELODY AND HORNED INNOCENCE AND CHRONICLES LIFE. I AM FOND OF THIS ART.
A few of my favorite things....
Mercury Rev keeps on keepin' on. This album stays true to the band I have grown to love while at the same time keeping it fresh and interesting. Just what I needed to help welcome fall and the crisp air, a great album.
