5 stars Along with Phideaux's, Doomsday Afternoon, this is my favorite album of the new millienium so far. I feel that this album, for me at least, seems to have had the same effect as Marillion's Script for a Jester's Tear did in revitilizing Prog music. THis album had been reviewed countless times so Ican't contribute much more except to say that it has no weak point from beginning to end! On some later Mars Volta works, the amount of "background" noise and "non-music" gets az little annoying but not here. Everything falls into place with the masterpiece Cicatriz ESP in the center to hold it together. Everything on this album is excellent from the lyrics, to the concepts, to the musicians (Volta and Chili Peppers). This gets a rare 5 stars from me. By the time I have finished all my reviews, there may be only 8-10 perfect 5stars for me. THis is a solid one of those!
