  • Some of the songs on Embryonic are edited free-form jams. Frontman Wayne Coyne explained this one in the album's press notes: "Another of the early freak-out jams that showed us a new way. We began to name our free-form sessions using astrological signs. We didn't know how many we'd end up with, so this naming system was a solution to keeping track. But it quickly began to color what the little pieces of music meant. I guess everybody already has an abstract concept in their mind that is evoked by the zodiac stuff."
