4 stars In a time were music is stuck in [&*!#], hip hop and pop are more powerful than ever (that's bad) and the so called "rock" bands like Linkin Park or Evanescence play the same bad song over and over again, The Mars Volta seems like fallen from the sky!!! Finally a good band to reach mainstream popularity... and what a great album too! Their music is a great mix of prog, psychotic sounds and free jazz. But if I had to say the type of music they play... I'd say [%*!#]ing loud music would be the right name... but good [%*!#]ing loud music!!! My favorite songs are "Son et lumiere-Intertiatic esp", Roulette dares (the haunt of)", "Drunkship of lanterns" and "Televators". This last one , unlike the rest of the album, is a beautiful and sad number played with acoustic guitars. the chorus at the edn and Cedric´s vocals give me the chills every time. By the time I'm writing this review I haven't bought "France the Mute" (their 2 album), but I'm sure it won't take long before I do. I say this because I'm told it's even better than "De-loused in the comatorium"...I surely hope so, but if not I'm still happy this band even exists!!!!!!!!!!!
