4 stars The third Mars Volta LP Amputechture is another good album from this creative/unique art rock band. The album has way less ambiance than like Frances the Mute or Deloused. And sometimes this album kind of reminds me of Yes or King Crimson sometimes. The musicianship on this album though is one of a kind, i love the latin sounds they put in their music, it's good that they represent their culture in their music. Some great tracks on the album are Tetragrammaton,with fantastic drumming by Jon, Day of the Baphomets, which shows Juan's great bass playing. And Meccamputechture which displays some crazy vocals by Cedric. This album is more straight foreword than Delouse or Frances. The Mars Volta still kept their own sound intact on Amp, but like i said this album reminds me of some old 70's prog. I have been following the mars volta since the early days and they always know how to put out great albums. Deloused and Frances are better than this one but this is still an album not to miss. Check it out and get ready for the ride! 4 stars
