The Flaming Lips: Transmissions From the Satellite Heart

Ian Christe, Alternative Press, 1994

WHEN THE FLAMING Lips look out at the world from Oklahoma, it must seem hurried and strange. They don't let it affect them. Transmissions From the Satellite Heart, their sixth album since 1985 and second for Warner Bros., demonstrates that the Lips are a rare group of players who have made it to the big leagues without losing their love of the game. They don't need money to satisy themselves, just room to experiment.
