3 stars I just love The mars Volta, because it is a band that could always do something out of the expectations. They did it again. Am i gonna say that this album is the greatest i have heard..NO!!!, Of course i like this album very much so, and songs like: take the veil...and the four parts of Cicatriz are incerdibly great songs, i have this album since one week and i did listen to it about 15 times and i know i will play it another 100 times or so. Why not a 4 or 5 stars review than? Simply because, there is a small deception that some of their greatest songs do not figure on the live, also because at moments the sound is not very good and also the singing of Zavala is not always (95% yes) as powerful as it is with the great Frances the mute and The fantastic Coma.

If your already a fan buy it it is worthed a 4-5 stars album, if Coma or Frances first.I think it is a good live album, but even if they did special things, i am inpatiently waiting for the next studio album!!!!
