At War with the Mystics

At War With The Mystics - The Flaming Lips

Flaming Lips At War with the Mystics - (full album mp3)
The Flaming Lips are one of my favourite Cult Groups of the present era. Classed as a rock band i prefer to call them "Semi Psychedelic"
My favourite album of the moment by Flaming lips is "At War With The Mystics"
I have included some videos of some performances by the flaming lips featuring songs from the album, which is of course available for Download here

At War with the Mystics is the eleventh album by the Flaming Lips. It was released on April 3, 2006 in international markets, and April 4, 2006 in the United States. It includes a different mix of the song, "Mr. Ambulance Driver", which was originally used as part of the soundtrack to the 2005 film Wedding Crashers. The album is more guitar-driven, and lyrically political, than The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.

The track "It Overtakes Me" has gained considerable interest, being featured as the soundtrack to a UK television commercial for Beck's beer, and "The W.A.N.D." has been used in European adverts for Bud Light and for Dell Computers in the U.K. and the U.S.

"The Wizard Turns On..." won a 2006 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. The album was nominated for the Best Alternative Album Grammy. The 5.1 mix of the album was nominated for Best Surround Sound Album in 2008.
