About this album

It was announced in March 2007 that the album is to be made into a Broadway musical by The West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin and director Des McAnuf. [5] Frontman Wayne Coyne said of the plot:
“There’s the real world and then there’s this fantastical world. This girl, the Yoshimi character, is dying of something. And these two guys are battling to come visit her in the hospital. And as one of the boyfriends envisions trying to save the girl, he enters this other dimension where Yoshimi is this Japanese warrior and the pink robots are an incarnation of her disease. It’s almost like the disease has to win in order for her soul to survive. Or something like that.”

    This is a great album, very well-produced, arranged and performed. but most of their other albums are actually better!

    One more robot bass line is top class [2] The Ego Trippin at the Gates of Hell bass is pure perfection as well.

    It's not a tribute to Pink Floyd.

    I’m so glad I’ve listened to this album. Is the first I hear from this band, and the impression I have is that they combine many resources in a very neat but also colorful way. This combination is just wonderful: One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21 Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 1 Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 2 In the Morning of the Magicians Very recommended to those who enjoy psychedelic rock combined with electronic. An interesting tribute to Pink Floyd: they took the best of them but it is shown in an original way.

    This is one of those perfect albums. The only song i'm not in love with is yoshimi battles the pink robots part 2. I wonder if it will ever grow on me?

    I'm pretty sure In the Morning of the Magicians is part of the storyline. I think the intentionally childish/simple lyrics are fitting.

    It's a conceptual album but just the middle of it. The other songs post YBTPRP2 doesn't make sense with the main concept.

    Listening to this album on acid with a couple good friends is an experience everyone should have. Just be safe and don't do it alone. Take a low dose and get a test kit if possible

    There are some good songs on this album. I'm pretty sure this is a concept album. How would it not be?
