  1.  Well produced, but a little disappointing after "No Doubt"

    Posted: 

    Gwen Stefani's solo career has taken her down a polished pop career, with perfect recordings and intrgiuing vidoes. Unfortunately, for my taste at least, it means she's moved away from her roots with the band No Doubt, which though less polished was much more enjoyable. If you enjoy pop music, give it a whirl - if you loved No Doubt, I'd probably look elsewhere.

  2.  Absolutely wonderful use of vocoder effects

    Posted: 

    This album is spectacular - fun, cheerful, and like most of the reviews say, just makes you want to dance. I'm particularly impressed by the light use of the vocoder effects - many bands have tried this but used it with far too heavy a hand, while this feels pitched just right to add a fun, unique touch to already great music.

    Its odd, but many people who'd normally avoid this kind of music love this band - it seems to have a much wider appeal than most bands. I'd definitely recommend giving them a go.

  3.  Absolutely wonderful, like all the Flaming Lips albums

    Posted: 

    Although not quite as unified as their later albums, ("Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" or "At War With The Mystics", for example), the individual tracks still exhibit the wonderfully whimsical lyrics and upbeat, well paced music. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone, but newcomers to the Flaming Lips might be better off starting with one of their later albums.

  4.  An excellent, if unusual album!

    A friend suggested I give the Battles a go, and I'm very glad I did. This is a very unusual album, with minimal vocals, but absolutely excellent and unusual indie instrumental work. I love it, but you may want to try and listen to a track or two somewhere before buying it, as this is very much a love it or hate it type of album.
