Live 2016 Performance On Double LP!

TAS Rated 5/5 Music, 3/5 Sonics in the April 2020 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

"For the performance of The Soft Bulletin that took place at Red Rocks in 2016, the Flaming Lips were joined by a 68-piece orchestra and a 57-person choir. As a result, instead of piling on overdubs of fake instruments, the live performance used real instruments played in real time. And new arrangements by Tom Hagerman confirmed the landmark album would meet with a fresh set of ears. "

" The turbo-charged opener "Race For the Prize", creates a vast soundscape that somehow encompasses 132 musicians. But the arrangements vary significantly. The most epic song on the original album, "Waiting For a Superman", is stripped down considerably, yet the live performance matches the studio version in its intensity - and that's saying something. Buoyed by the choir, the searing guitar solo at the end of "Feeling Yourself Disintegrate" keeps building in intensity. Hagerman's arrangements reveal hidden charms locked within the most introspective cuts, and throughout the record it's clear that the Flaming Lips put real thought into this project. Good for them. They got it right - twice."- Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound Magazine, April 2020

On May 26, 2016 The Flaming Lips performed their classic album The Soft Bulletin in its entirety with the Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. The Flaming Lips (Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd, Michael Ivins, Derek Brown, Jake Ingalls, Matt Kirksey and Nicholas Ley) were accompanied by a 69-piece orchestra and 56-strong Chorus. The performance was conducted by the internationally celebrated conductor Andre de Ridder. The Flaming Lips performed the 12-track album in its original sequence with new arrangements for each song that use the orchestra and chorus to great effect. This entire concert was produced by The Flaming Lips, Scott Booker and their long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann. The resulting live album is released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Soft Bulletin, originally released in 1999. The album was the band's breakthrough moment and featured the hit singles "Race For The Prize" and "Waitin' for a Superman".
