- Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is the tenth album by The Flaming Lips, released in July 2002.
- Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots appeared in best albums of the decade lists of many music magazines, such as Rolling Stone (#27) and Uncut (#11).
- Fortune magazine called the album "a lush and haunting electronic symphony."
- Calling the album "as strange as it is wonderful," Billboard magazine explained, "Beneath the sunny, computer-generated atmospherics and the campy veneer of talk about gladiator-style clashes between man and machines with emotions, Yoshimi is actually a somber rumination on love and survival in an unfathomable world."
- Giving the album four-out-of-five stars, Rolling Stone called the production "ambitious".
- Uncut declared "even by their standards, Yoshimi is astonishing" before declaring it the greatest album released in the magazine's lifetime. (Source)
