Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is the tenth studio album by American rock band The Flaming Lips, released on July 15, 2002 by Warner Bros. The album was well-received critically and commercially, helping the band break into the mainstream, and was adapted into a musical in 2012

Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me But you won't let those robots defeat me Yoshimi, they don't believe me But you won't let those robots eat me. Yoshimi. Cause she knows that It'd be tragic If those evil robots win I know she can beat them. There is debate as to whether or not the song and album as a whole is about Yoshimi fighting cancer, (pink could symbolize breast cancer,) but one thing’s beyond debate: it rocks! "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, Pt. 1" Track Info.

I think it's safe to say that the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne is a genius, equal parts Thomas Edison. So let's just come right out and say it: after the one-two punch of Zaireeka and The Soft Bulletin, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots is a bold and inventive work, brimming with ideas and sublime moments of brilliance. But it's also unfocused and top-heavy, a concept album about robots and karate that, somewhere along the line, strays into languorous, contemplative songs about mortality and death.

Yoshimi represents love and compassion. To be defeated by the pink robots is to become one of them, to give up on love and your fellow man and behave like a robot. Hence the line from another song on the album, "one more robot learns to be something more than a machine. That line means, "one more person remembers how to be a person and not a mindless, selfish "pink robot. Joe from San Diego, CaI saw this guy on the Daily Show last night who wrote this book Wired for War about the future use of robotics in . warfare (already using over 35,000 droids in Iraq). Dave from London, EnglandIt's a great track, and a great album and their new album is fantastic too! and yeah!

The album was well-received critically and commercially, helping the band break into the mainstream, and was adapted into a musical in 2012. Uncut declared that even by their standards, Yoshimi is astonishing

godlike
Good sound quality as fas as I can tell, red vinyl looks good too. Gatefold cover, would buy this particular copy again.

Kit
Got it new from Amazon UK: gatefold, red translucent and NO lyric sheet.

Frdi
Can confirm does not come with a lyric sheet but the sleeve is a gatefold with an extra photo of the band so I guess that is the trade off.

MOQ
My copy is pink translucent vinyl. Is that not the norm?

Eseve
Yes, it's not very visible on the pictures # 3 and 4, the vinyl is red/pink and transluscent.

Shakagul
Bought it new without lyrics sheet :(It is also red transparent vinyl

Zololmaran
This edition does not include a lyrics sheet. Mine came with a plain white sleeve. Bought it used though, so I'm not 100% sure.

Phallozs Dwarfs
Mine didn't and I bought it when it was released.

Pemand
Does this edition have the gatefold sleeve?Edit: Just got it; it does.
