Holy. Shit.  It's like Elvis Costello fucked Freddie Mercury, and let their progeny hang out with Ben Folds.  Really drawing heavily on the first five or so Queen albums, but with a sense of pop hooks that Elvis Costello showcased throuhgout most of the 70's and early 80's, with the sort of post-modern tweeking the Flaming Lips are best known for, Flight of the Knife isn't just the best album I've heard this year, it may be the best album of the decade thus far.

A true masterwork from a band who are only two albums old.  And, it's dirt ass cheap on iTunes right now. Go. Get it.  Love it.
