Double LP Featuring Kacey Musgraves & Micah Nelson!

Consequence of Sound's Top 50 Albums Of 2020 - Rated 47/50!

American Head is the best and most consistent studio album from The Flaming Lips since the release of their most successful brace of albums The Soft Bulletin & Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots. Similar to those albums, the 13 songs on American Head are classically structured and feature the same sonic and production qualities. Kacey Musgraves (a fan who covers "Do You Realize" in her live set) is a guest on "God And The Policeman".

At the top of their fifth decade, the Lips rekindle their past romance with Neil Young's piano ballads, the Beatles' psychedelic guitar tones, and Bowie's stargazing anthems on a deeply personal album.
The best records in The Flaming Lips catalog are the ones that find the balance between the band's penchant for fried psychedelic whimsy and the uncanny tenderness that underpins Coyne's songwriting. For the first time in nearly two decades, they've rediscovered this winning formula. As a result, American Head stands alongside The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots as one of the very best records The Flaming Lips have recorded and should be required listening for anyone who's gone on their own quarantine-induced walk down memory lane in search of a way to survive this year.
