5 stars This album has grown a lot on me in the last years, positioning itself in second place after De-Loused (of course), on my list of favorite The Mars Volta works. It's a very eclectic album, following the steps of Frances the Mute's on the search for more complex compositions, adding Latin music influences (singing some parts in Spanish, which I love), some post-rock and their traditional post-hardcore imprint. It contains some very aggressive sections with their classic hyperkinetic drums but also with several catchy riffs. My favorite track in the album is Day of the Baphomets, which I can also considerate my favorite of all their discography. Meccamputechture, Tetragrammaton, Vermicide and Asilos Magdalena are killer ones too. The weakest tracks in my opinion are the first and last. Still a 5 stars album for me.
