3 stars The beginning? Not quite.

To say that this was a new band is well, wrong. The Mars Volta already had accomplished musicians from bands passed, (At the Drive In) and were well accustomed to the process of putting out a record. That said, this is no ATDI clone.

The final track on this record should make it pretty clear that The Mars Volta was heading somewhere, with its modern qualities combined with the craziness of King Crimson. Pure energy. In fact, Eunuch Provocateur is still one of my favorite Mars Volta pieces, the sound and passion of a band that can't wait to literally rock your face off.

A fine introduction that caught the eye of many and would lead to their magnum opus of De-Loused. There the ideas would become more refined, and the experience simply unbelievable.
