It's no mean feat to fuse a sense of lyrical melancholy with a tripped-out, often experimental musical bent, but that's one of the chief factors that makes this veteran Oklahoma band's 2002 standout album so consistently intriguing. Dubbed for the contributions of guest collaborator Yoshimi P-we (leader of the Japanese experimental combo the Boredoms, who befriended the Lips on a Lollapalooza stint), her electronic sensibilities elevate Wayne Coyne's typically consciousness-bending songs into a realm that's too organic and sonically rich to be dubbed a Floyd rip-off. What seems to begin as whimsical, rhythmically adventurous concept album (the titular "battle") soon unfolds into a shimmering, ever dreamy collection that drifts between space-rock ("Approaching the Mons of Pavonis by Balloon," "Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell") and such rewarding, introspective fare as Coyne's disturbingly beautiful meditation on death — and unlikely hit — "Do You Realize."
