I fucking love Alligator if only because it feels more like a band just sitting in a room somewhere playing music, whereas Boxer feels a little too polished sometimes in comparison. I mean I absolutely love both albums, but I prefer Alligator just a tiny bit more.

Like, I've always loved the 3 Flaming Lips albums I knew, but there are like 5-6 more that I had never heard. So last year instead of constantly consuming new music, I checked out those albums and got really deep into them, listening to nothing else for a month or so and just lived inside them. That's hard to do with new releases sometimes because there's this pressure to keep consuming new releases in order to keep up with the times, but sometimes that turns music into a homework assignment instead of an immersive experience like it should be.
