Clouds Taste Metallic
Released: Sep 1995
Label: Warner Bros.
A justifiably confident band takes its love of studio manipulation to new extremes on this set, which deploys xylophones, bells, birds, whirring machinery, exploding cities, cheering crowds and more as instrumental accompaniment to songs about cosmic orgasms, burning postmen and the inevitable triumph of evil over everything we know and love. Given the grim ending they predict, the band advises you to "show no mercy/ in your dreams," and this album is pretty much them doing exactly that: It's dreamy, and they're merciless -- even when you think they're joking.
