PTS, I'm honestly sitting here debating if you were either born deaf, or if you were born without any sort of logical reasoning skills. Stop hating TMV because you think it's the unpopular opinion and you want to look fucking unique or something.

Good job, Intransit, you've figured it out. My unwavering scepticism of the Mars Volta's absolutely idiotic brand of musical masturbation is all a cleverly plotted ruse to make me disliked by Internet folk. Congratulations to you.

I'm sorry that the sound of Omar fondling his guitar doesn't give me a bonor like you. Obviously, I am less of a human than you. But just so you know, I wanted to like this so much. I would have been more than happy to write a positive review about this album. I would love to share the experience that everyone else supposedly got from this album. Instead, I walked away as dissapointed as ever, feeling like I had been betrayed by a close friend (or at least an unreliable drunk uncle.)

Yes, this is better than Amputechture, but not by much. That's my final verdict. It's not Jesus reincarnate, and it's not complete steaming shit. It's an average album, with three amazing tracks, three average tracks, and a whole bunch of stinkers. Intransit, get off your high horse. If you can't accept the fact that someone in the world might not love TMV, you're just ignorant.



...Sorry if that was a bit of a rant. I still love you all, kk? ;)This Message Edited On 01.23.08

It's certainly not as good as De-loused. Nothing has been as good as that album, in my honest opinion. This is really a step-up from Amputechture but there are too many annoying songs to really go nuts about it. There are about 4 decent songs, but the rest are unmemorable.

I'm starting to think De-loused was a fluke.

Ilyena can suck mah ballz.

Seriously I think it's nothing special. I love the practical non-stop energy in Goliath.

If Pixies thinks Amputechture is better than this I seriously doubt this is going to be that great. I'll give it a listen anyway.

I hope this is better than Amputechture. Amputechture was one of the biggest disappointments of my entire life.



And what is with people and De-Loused? FTM is a far superior album.

PTS: I would try to take more than a sentence to respond to this but it's pretty silly considering the fact that what Iluvatar said about you is basically dead on.

Ptssdashiz don't take it personally. Just like Iluvatar is a slobbering TMV fanboy (and a fine reviewer no doubt) Intransit is a slobbering Iluvatar fanboy (and not such a fine reviewer).

I give this album a 3.5 because there are some painfully awful segments and the lyrics/vocals almost constantly blow.

Sentence #2 of the first paragraph needs either an "is" or a rewording.

I'd definately say this is better than Amputechture, but a little worse than De-loused. As odd as this is coming from me, Frances is probably their best album. Even though I do have to skip through it constantly, it really is their tightest, biggest, and most rewarding album.
