4 stars This was probably the best debut of the decade which also marked a new trend in the development of mainstream rock music. De-loused in the Comatorium is the first and so far most satisfying release by The Mars Volta and after buying the CD I played the album like crazy for an entire month.

What actually surprised me the most about this album is that its popularity transcended the regular prog/art-rock community and actually got its way into the mainstream media. Actual people that I hang around with who don't usually enjoy art-music were really enjoying De-loused in the Comatorium!

Over the course of the next couple of years the popularity of this album has increased even more which might have to do with the ever-changing direction that the band has been known on their later releases. This might even have made this album look better than what it actually is.

I'd like to summarize by saying that this debut might not be an essential release for fans of prog rock but it doesn't hurt including it in your collection.
