    A cover album of The Beatles is band enough but Sgt. Pepper you couldn't have picked a more iconic album to ruin. At first I listened to this and thought this is bad a score of 2 would be right then I listened to the original and compared and a score of 2 is being generous this cover "album" is dreadful.

    What was the need for this? It's a bunch of half-baked attempts to modernize the music of a timeless album. It's like re-recording the entirety of "The Dark Side of the Moon" with the lead singer of Black Flag, Henry Rollins. Oh, wait, The Flaming Lips already did that? Damn.

    An inspired madman's tribute. [Dec 2014, p.105]

    It's largely horrible, but sometimes impressively so. [Dec 2014, p.94]

    Ultimately it doesn't feel much like a proper Flaming Lips album, at least not as much as their take on Dark Side of the Moon, but like that album it's an intriguing glimpse of whatever strange journey they have planned next.
