I have a feeling the same people who bash the interludes praise The Mars Volta for their ridiculous electronic ramblings.
I would definitely consider this Progressive. People are so anal about that word. They experiment with concepts, electronics and atmosphere, as well as time-signatures and dissonance. Sounds progressive enough for me.
The new Re-release has better vocals. They redid alot of it. I'm not too big on the bonus/remixes of the songs off of Lover, though.
the re-release is bullshit, this album was fine to begin with.
Yeah it was fine to begin with. That doesn't mean it can't improve. Have you even heard the reissue?
I hope they come out with new stuff soon. This band is great.
hmm...this sounds interesting.....would i like this if i like finch?....or is it nothing like finch?.....
this is nothing like finch
ok.....i liek finch and explosions in the sky...from what im getting....its like a cross btwn those....right?....or should i just go buy the cd?....
lol not really, I wouldn't buy it if you don't know what you're getting into, download it first then listen with an open mind, and make a decision

Yea so this is pretty awesome.

Interludes annoy me, but the actual songs slay.
