549. The Flaming Lips - zaireeka

This album deserves a 10 based on its concept alone. Four CD's to be played simultaneously, each adding, through different cd players, speakers and directions within a room, sounds that together will form an entire song. The beauty of these discs too is that no two listening sessions will be the same. Getting four people to hit 'play' at the same time is impossible. You can also play just one, two or three cds at a time, in any combination. In short it's brilliant and the music is almost secondary, luckily though it's the Lips and the music lives up too the concept.

9.3 out of 10
Below is track 1 from disc 1. The same track on discs 2, 3 and 4 help complete the track.
Okay I'll Admit That I Really Don't Understand
