The Observer (2017 Remaster)
Label: Warner Records
An amazing album from end to end, the Lips finally made their brilliance apparent to everyone with this 1999 album. A nakedly humane record draped in seemingly surreal elements, the disc made everything old seem new again. It's bizarre, beautiful orchestral pop music (but mixed like a contemporary R&B album), and also the last great pop album of the 1990s.
