    According to most sources, it's been pushed back to Sept 23. However, from what i've heard it's a very very agressive surround mix.

    Please describe "very very agressive" I know I'm going to like the disc no matter what, but I'm wondering if you mean agressive good or agressive bad. And where did you hear this? I'd like to read it.
    thanks.

    I wouldn't expect anything less from the Lips.

    Even their normal CDs are what I would call aggressive. I don't have studio quality equipment but neither my home or my car can reproduce some of the bass without distortion. for instance, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 2 kicks my stereo's ass. I'm truly afraid what the DVDA will do! [​IMG]

    I remember earlier this year the release date was set for sometime in July. This is beginning to be a bummer. I've really been looking forward to this, I guess I'll just continue looking forward...

    While waiting for Yoshimi to come out, I was wondering if anyone has their Zaireeka album?

    It's 4 CD's with 8 songs split over all 4. The idea is that you sync up 4 stereos/8 speakers at once and hit play to get 8 channels of craziness. I'm intrigued.

    I also read somewhere (can't remember) that Flaming Lips DVD Audio WILL be the first cd/dvda flipper.. Maybe this is because of the delay?

    from HighFidelityReview.com:

    ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots’ CD+DVD-Audio Scheduled for 23rd September
    *The release date for ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots’ by the Flaming Lips has been confirmed as September 23rd by Rick Gershon of Warner Bros. Records Publicity.

    In a message circulated to the industry’s entertainment editors and some wire services, the contents of the “CD+DVDA” package – which consists of two separate discs and not a single hybrid – are detailed, but once again Warner Bros. falls flat on its face when it comes to promoting the benefits of DVD-Audio. Nowhere in the release does it mention high-resolution audio or the presence of a multi-channel version of the album, and even the words “DVD-Audio” are absent from the text!

    Here are the contents of the news release:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hailed as one of the most innovative and influential bands in modern music, The Flaming Lips will release a special Collector’s Edition of their critically lauded 2002 album, ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots’ (produced by The Flaming Lips, Dave Fridmann and Scott Booker), on September 23, 2003.

    Packed with special features, the deluxe CD+DVDA edition includes all the original selections from ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots’, with such key cuts as the title track, (Part 1 and Part 2,) ‘Fight Test’ The Grammy® Award winning track ‘Approaching Pavonis Mons By Balloon (Utopia Planitia)’ and eight other essential Flaming Lips originals.

    Other highlights are such rare and previously unavailable (in the U.S.) bonus audio tracks as ‘Up Above The Daily Hum’ the Japanese version of ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots PT. 1’ and ‘If I Go Mad’, the B-side to the UK single ‘Do You Realize?’ In addition, is the special ‘Floating In Space Remix’ and ‘CD101 (live)’ versions of ‘Do You Realize?’ and an acoustic rendition of ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1’ from AOL Sessions.

    DVDA video selections contain two versions of ‘Do You Realize?’ one directed by Mark Pellington and the other by Flaming Lips frontman, Wayne Coyne. The videos of ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt 1’, ‘Fight Test’ and ‘Are You A Hypnotist?’ are accompanied by documentaries chronicling the making of ‘Do You Realize?’, ‘Yoshimi’ and ‘Yoshimi 5.1’. Also spotlighted is the audio oddity ‘Phoebe Battles The Pink Robots’ (recorded for but never used in an episode of ‘Friends’), and the trailer for the film-in-progress ‘Christmas On Mars’, with an all-original Flaming Lips score.

    Additional bonus material includes DVD ROM animated episodes of ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt 1’ and ‘Fight Test’.

    It is currently first week of November ...and will be two separate discs.

    If it sells well enough there is hope for Soft Bullentin to follow.

    If this one isn't going to be a CD/DVD-A flipper, perhaps some of the other discs originally scheduled for release on September 23rd (the handful of R.E.M. releases, for instance) will be.
