So true. If you're gonna listen, you really have to sit down and pay attention. Their second album is probably my favorite though.

Agreed. I couldn't get into Frances much myself cos all the ambient stuff but I've only heard it like 5 times I should probably give it another chance, it seems to be a lot of people's favourite one.

If you give time for Frances, it's extremely great. During the first few listens I had a hard time paying attention, bat after a while I got to know the whole thing and it got better and better.

Yeah I really didn't like Frances much until I just kept listening to it. I love it when the trumpet comes out of nowhere and some of the guitar solos just really make it great.

Can't agree with that, the album offers something new almost every listen.

Sometimes I think Omar rules at guitar and other times I have no fucking idea what he is doing like when he just plays random notes that make no sense and sound like shit. Gotta take the bad with the good I suppose.

@TommyGun - Too true, I saw TMV @ sonisphere in the UK and they were awesome for the most part (playing tunes off this record), they finished with a chilled out Goliath in the vain of Rapid Fire Tollbooth, then Omar just tripped out completely. He just does what the fuck he wants IMO.

Yeah man I've seen him playing live with Juan Alderete and Deantoni Parks. They pretty much just jammed for an hour and a half, Omar fucked around for most of it but did play some awesome shit too. He has admitted in interviews that he's completely ignorant of music theory so I guess he just noodles around for a while and every now and then he comes up with something brilliant.
