3 stars Something is missing here. Is it too mellow? Not weird enough? I am not sure, but no tracks on OCTAHEDRON have ever caught my complete attention. This is, by a long shot, The Mars Voltas most quiet and acoustic kind of album. There are no gripping epics that could be found on DELOUSED IN THE COMATORIUM or AMPUTECHTURE. Also missing are any "wild and wacky" prog songs that I enjoy so much from this group. This is probably the most assessible album for newcomers to The Mars Volta, but that also makes it the least interesting for longtime fans. Not that this is a weak or poor album, OCTAHEDRON just fails to offer anything new or innovative. 3 stars.
