Mars Volta – De-loused In The Comatorium

What a joyous noise!

It’s a prog rock metal pop punk latin jazz freak out, and this is a really satisfying album. The band is insanely tight, restlessly shifting tempos and moods, often within each song. The dude singing sometimes sounds like Geddy, then other times not at all. They’re like shapeshifters!

It sounds, to me, like a band that the lead singer tyrant of the band I was in used to also play with… except that the Mars Volta are really fucking good and that other band was really fucking not.

These guys really went for it, and the results are brilliant. Fully recommended for the good headphones when you’re ready to have your brain melted and your spirits lifted.

      It is! That’s part of Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt, which is the last track on the album!

      Also, that girl’s crazy. I don’t care how tired you are, you go see Pixies and Mars Volta! And then come home for sex! Silly girl.

      Yes! Looks like lots of Mars Volta fans in these parts, and that’s a good thing. This album is crazy awesome. I get the feeling that when I play it again, I’m gonna hear new things I totally missed the first spins.

    What an album and what a band. These guys consistently blew my mind with their retro-futuristic sound (is that a thing?) and their seemingly endless supply of energy. I became a fan for life the first time I heard “De-Loused…” Hopefully your post will inspire others to check them out.

      Hey thanks Rich! Yeah this CD was really great. I don’t think I was quite ready for just how crazy awesome busy it is, but once I got strapped in, there was no way I was gonna let go!

          I do make some excellent finds*, sometimes. 🙂

          *There are many more excellent items I’d love to have, in the junk shop, but I pass them up because they’re scratched. I only buy pristine discs. 🙂
