I still need to get this album. From what I've heard of it, it seems okay, but I think I'll learn to love it if I gave it a couple of good listens.

To introduce yourself to the band? Definitely go with their first album instead.

how can one dislike the mars volta?

First you take a coffee mug.
Then add two teaspoonfuls of water.
Add a drop of olive-oil.
Crack egg into mug, careful not to break the yoke.
Cover the top with clingwrap.
Put in microwave for 90 seconds.
NOW YOU HAVE A POACHED EGG.
Add salt to taste.

What the fuck does a poached egg have to do with The Mars Volta?

And that's not a true poached egg anyways. Bring water to a boil in a sauce pan with a little salt and a tiny bit of vinegar to keep the white together. And if you are going to poach an egg in a microwave, poke a couple holes in the yolk with a toothpick since it can explode otherwise.

"EVERY PERSON WHO HATES THE MARS VOLTA HAS WANTED THEM TO MAKE FOR YEARS"

^ Not really. This album is mellow, but it retains the same style they've always had(especially that of their first 2 albums as you said). I don't anticipate any massive switch on the part of TMV haters.

Well I don't think criticisms have been pointed at them completely changing their sound, just restraining it which is what occurred with this record.
