Mars Volta


Universal B000721402

Released on September 12, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

The third album by The Mars Volta, marks the first time Omar and Cedric have created a work without a single unifying narrative. The essential creative process remained the same: Omar creating the music (including the horn sections) for Cedric to lyricize—but this time with the freedom to document unrelated stories, vignettes, inside jokes, various people, events memories… All in all, Cedric likens the experience alternately to the compartmentalized episodes of Rod Serling’s NIGHT GALLERY or the disparate plotlines of David Lynch’s TWIN PEAKS: Storylines not necessarily linear or in any way connected, but all told in the same voice.

My faith in the Mars Volta has been restored. After the fuck up that was Francis the Mute, i was really skeptical about this record. This has all the musical intensity that i loved about Deloused without all the ambient garbage noise that came with FTM. It is clear to see that they are evolving their musical writing style, but not in the worst way. This album has a more powerful feel in some songs than their last two works. I recommend this highly for fans of their better stuff.
