Twenty years have passed since the Flaming Lips released Clouds Taste Metallic, their seventh LP as well as their last album to feature guitarist Ronald Jones.

To mark the anniversary, Warner Bros. presents Heady Nuggs: 20 Years After Clouds Taste Metallic  1994-1997 Reissue Box Set. Featuring rarities, live takes and more, the set also includes, for the first time ever on vinyl, "Providing Needles For Your Balloons" EP.

Clouds Taste Metallic was a masterful collection, completing The Flaming Lips odyssey into the pop stratosphere. Writes AllMusic, "The Pet Sounds comparisons are obvious — two of the highlights are titled 'This Here Giraffe' and 'Christmas at the Zoo' — yet not unfair; like Brian Wilson, Wayne Coyne has refined his unique vision into something both highly personal and powerfully universal. Similarly, while Coyne's lyrics remain as acid-damaged and inscrutable as ever, his densely constructed songs convey emotional complexities far beyond the scope of their head-case titles ('Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus With Needles,' 'Guy Who Got a Headache and Accidentally Saves the World'); galvanized by equal parts newfound maturity and childlike wonderment, Clouds Taste Metallic is both the Flaming Lips' most intricate and most irresistible work."
