Expectations were high for the Flaming Lips to deliver another “She Don’t Use Jelly” to continue their MTV dominance with slackery-weirdo anthems. Instead, “Jelly” turned out to be a fluke — and instead of trying to churn out another hit, the Lips focused on crafting ambitious albums to critical applause. 'Clouds Taste Metallic' is solid but low-key, lacking instantly recognizable Lips songs. But on its best tracks, like “Placebo Headwound,” “Psychiatric Exploration of the Fetus With Needles” and “Christmas at the Zoo” (an inspired rip of Thunderclap Newman’s “Something in the Air”), they flex their songwriting and studio mastery and warm up for 'The Soft Bulletin'’s knockout punch.
