Like most of the Flaming Lips material this CD/DVD contains some fantasy-based, way out there stuff. It took them seven years for Lips frontman Wayne Coyne to write and finally direct this music/film about the colonization of Mars. The band members star in the film. The CD is filled with the musical score (all instrumental) from the film. This is a logical step for the eccentric band to take and true fans have been waiting for this to come out for years. Interesting take on the holiday season.
