DESCRIPTION

The underrated follow-up to 'Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots' is more sober and pointed, full of philosophical grey areas and moral imperatives. “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song” asks to what end we would use unlimited power and privilege (“It's a very dangerous thing to do exactly what you want,” Coyne sings), “Free Radicals” is a Dubya-era plea to a suicide bomber, and “The W.A.N.D.” is a fuzz-rock ripper that updates John Lennon’s “Power to the People” (“We’ve got the power now, motherf---ers!”) for the modern era. But 'At War with the Mystics' isn’t all polemics: ballads like “The Sound of Failure,” “Vein of Stars” and “Mr. Ambulance Driver” find the Lips at their most restrained, autumnal and lovely.
