This album is awesome. I love the change of pace, i think it was a great move by the band. So far their sound has been pretty predictable from album to album (albeit awesome)

It takes a few listens to get into, but pretty much their best since Deloused
Seeing them in two weeks

best since de-loused, may bump to 3.5 soon


Frances?!? and no don't give me the "ambient is shit" argument, you don't rate frances 3 or lower due to a bit of outstrung ambient

Mars Volta are such a promising band, but I get the feeling they'll never release a magnum opus incorporating all of their abilities coherently. This is closer, but... Still is a bit lacking.

Either way, excellent album, excellent review.
