I received an email that a funzone package has shipped. I guess this is our Fanzine

I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS ALBUM!
I have only listened to Lucy, and my comments were actually inspired by The Beatles not the Lios. That being said, I do like a lot of the Lips stuff, however, I wasn't really fond of the last album. I just started blabbering about my reaction to Lucy. I'm not sure what produced my warm reception of that song. I only listened to it once.I just heard Lucy for the first time yesterday. I thought it was brilliant but here's what I was wondering...was it a brilliant remake or was it a remake of a brilliant song? Sometimes I forget just how incredible The Beatles were. This is going to be the most old fogey thing I've ever written ("old fogey" is the second most): I'm just so sad about the music "kids today" are listening to. It's utter rubbish on the radio. I think that one of the absolute greatest things that I did as a parent is expose my kids to good music. I gave them the foundation and they did the rest. I remember hearing The Beatles blaring from my son's room one night. He had "found" them on his own. Now I'm not implying that there isn't great music being made now-we're Here , aren't we? It's the manufactured, over produced, prefab, formulated shit that's on the radio that makes me sad. Yes, there is some art out there, but most of it is formulated, money making garbage. It's so distressing because music is so important. For most, it's the first form of art and beauty that reaches out and touches us. It makes us feel. Music needs to be experienced. Kids need to be awakened and their souls need to be touched by art.i totally agree with your message but don't you think that this album was a little over cooked? i love worm mountain but this is just crazy over drive, fuzz, noise, and featuring some "artists" that fit perfectly with "formulated, money making garbage"
Sorry...I really did mosey in here just to say I liked a song.
