4 stars This is not your typical live album, it was very different then what i expected. I thought it would have around 10 live songs instead there are only are only three songs with lots of improve and these songs are cut up into sections, each section of these song are given strange titles. But the Mars Volta always do everything different from the norm. Some great highlights are Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt which features some great bass playing from Juan in And Ghousted pouts. A great live version of take the veil. And there is also a live version concertina, this track is much faster from the Tremulant version, with some sax added by Adrian. And the highlight of the live album is Cicatriz ESP, in Part 3 of Cicatriz there is an amazing solo from Omar and some soaring vocals by Cedric, I think his voice is better live than in studio. This is a great live album by the Volta, but this album is not for every one. Mainly only for volta fans or experimental rock fans. 4 stars for a unique live album
