4 stars The Mars Volta's Bedlam In Goliath is another strong original album from this talented young band. You can see their punk influence in this album. This is probably their heaviest album yet. Very different from their last album Amp which reminded me of Yes or King Crimson. With the new addition of their drummer Thomas it looks like the band is more comfortable on this album than the last. Most of the songs on this album are shorter in length and less solo's by Omar. Some standout tracks on this album are Metatron,Goliath,Agadez, and mu personal favorite Conjugal Burns. Not many bands can bring this kind of unique music to the table but this band can. This album get 4 stars from me, the only weak track on this album is Cavalettas. Besides that this album is just as wild as any other Mars Volta album.
