5 stars First off this album gets a five star rating because aside from being an amazing prog masterpiece there is for me alot of sentimental value to it. This album is beautifull because it just brings so much to the table, it has alot of emotion, its production was nothing less than incredible, the song writing is very unique and in your face yet can be gentle (televators), the vocals are very well placed, and of course who can forget that helicopter in Cicatrez E.S.P

De-loused is pulled together by its constantly changing atmosphere, though mostly in your face it often times feels more like an excited friend that has big news and stops for air sometimes than an enemy that just wants to see you cry. the small pauses of "breath" is what sets it apart from the mars volta's other album, in future albums you have to stay on your toes the whole album because if you dont you will be mentaly kicked in the face,

All in all i recommend it for the prog fan who cares nothing of making sense of lyrics and has a bit more of a crazy dance side to them

native bandit | 5/5 |
