4 stars Listening to The Mars Volta is like looking at a freak.

It is very strange, like nothing else. It has bits protruding out where they wouldn't normally be. It is ugly. Although it is scary at first, it is intriguing and compelling.

And it moves. It moves with conviction and power. With all the strange bits you wonder how it moves so well.

Bedlam in Goliath is the most freakish of their albums to date. It is a really ugly album. In the previous three full studio releases, you could see something of an inner beauty in the freak. There is very little beauty in Bedlam, but it is incredibly powerful.

Sometimes this album does miss the mark (Tourniquet Man for example), but for the most part it is just really powerful grooves full of ballistic musicianship.

My standout tracks: Metatron, Ilyena, Goliath and although many disagree, Askepios
