Personally, you can't compare tmv albums, because it's about growing into the music, growing up as a young progressive band... not every album has the same musicians. #tmv

i think this band's detractors are easier and easier for me to understand as time goes on.

This. The more music they make, the more I lose patience with them in some aspects

Hey Xeno btw, found an error in the last word of the 3rd paragraph:



" Its plodding pace mixed with The Mars Volta's poor use of electronics makes it breeze in and out of the listener's mind without a second though."

Definitely agreed. Band is pretty directionless, because their stated focus is about changes in the music, band changes genre with every song on an individual LP, etc.

those things are okay with me, i just think they're getting worse at it over time. i've also outgrown them somewhat since i first heard them.

Deloused sounds pretty childish now that I am older... you can see atdi present there, but I am not going to deny that Deloused is a classic, even now. A lot of changes, but just as many solid hooks that make listening an enjoyable experience.

my AOTY so far but there's a handful of other releases that are close, and number of upcoming albums that could definitely de-throne it.

btw Frances is not only my favorite album of theirs, it's also in my top 10 of all time.

I disagree that "Whip Hand" is a weak track. I hated it upon first listen but it shaped up to be one of my favorites. Great review.

Empty Vessels blows so hard. Most generic chorus in recent memory.
