Man, It Feels Like Space Again emerged as the band's sixth full-length, this time far more ambitious, unexpectedly funky, and cosmically colorful. Even with just nine tunes of moderate length, MIFLSA feels every bit as epic as the mind-expanding double albums of '70s freaker-outers like Pink Floyd and Hawkwind. The production drifts through different styles minute to minute as well as song to song. The band takes flight with all the blissed-out chamber pop friendliness of Super Furry Animals or Spiritualized on album opener "Waiting Around for Grace," moving quickly to a far more swaggering glam rock feel on "Elvis' Flaming Star," which sounds like Ariel Pink imitating Bowie. The album rarely slows down, offering up track after track of blown-out guitar tones, drifting synths, and even the occasional sound effect of atom bomb explosions. Things feel pleasantly crowded, from the laser beam party rock of "Zond" to the Funkadelic-flavored groove of "Outside Is the Right Side." The band finally takes a breather with the beautifully spare Dylanesque acoustic opening of "Medicine Hat." It's a stark contrast to the glimmering psych tones that saturate the rest of the album, but the respite is short-lived. By the second half of the tune, the band is back in full force, layering the song's soft structure with armies of fuzzy guitar tones.
