Video about The Flaming Lips’ The Soft Bulletin

I usually find “making of” documentaries to be either depressing, annoying, or both. But this documentary (embedded below) about The Flaming Lips’ The Soft Bulletin is enjoyable and inspiring.

They neatly avoid the temptations of describing the blow-by-blow trivialities, and of putting themselves under halos of “making history.” They more focus on the mystery that the music came together, and that they were able to be there and make it!
