    Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk rarely comes down from the krautrock klouds over the course of its 30-minute running time.

    It’s hard to make an argument for anything here being essential for the Flaming Lips’ career arc, but, it is a side project, and as side projects go, this one is strong.

    Electric Würms as a whole: cool and weird with some great moments, but little structure or direction.

    On Muzik Die Schwer Zu Twerk, they're underdeveloped, and the result isn't nearly electric enough and just too perplexing.

If you like Zaireeka and Embryonic - you are in for a treat! Good times indeed! After the fallout from firing their drummer, it looks like they are clearing the pallet. Expand
