5 stars A drunkship of perfection

Before this, I had never really like The Mars Volta. They were a weird, unappealing band full of scratchy and seemingly opiate induced music. However, I eventually got more curious and got the band's debut, De-loused in the Comatorium. Damn am I happy I did. Despite still having that weird, slightly avant, quality, the album displayed an incredible amount of energy, joy, and outright ecstasy while playing. The music is full of wonderfully dissonant melodies, augmented guitar tones and spectacular instrumentation. The style in which the entire album is crafted is wonderfully creative and fresh, truly breaking away from any other style of music at the time. Overall, this album is truly masterful. 5 stars.
