"This is one of those albums people are going to obsess over for many years to come." - Pitchfork
"Once you've labored in cult obscurity, fielded rumors that John Tesh wanted to cover one of your songs, appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, composed an orchestra for forty automobile tape decks and enjoyed a Top Forty blip, what do you do for a follow-up? The eccentric Oklahoma outfit The Flaming Lips serenely release another winning neo-psychedelic recording. Densely textured but melodic...No one else has posited a parallel universe in which the Sixties and the Nineties exist simultaneously." - Rolling Stone
As previously announced, The Soft Bulletin Recorded Live At Red Rocks With The Colorado Symphony Orchestra was recorded May 26th, 2016, at the prestigious Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. The Lips (Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd, Michael Ivins, Derek Brown, Jake Ingalls, Matt Kirksey and Nicholas Ley) performed their universally acclaimed 1999 Warner Records album The Soft Bulletin in its entirety accompanied by a 69-piece orchestra and 56-strong chorus and was conducted by the internationally celebrated conductor Andre de Ridder.
