4 stars I guess I would place BEDLAM IN GOLIATH as my 3rd favorite The Mars Volta release after DELOUSED and AMPUTECTURE. Both of those albums had wonderful tracks in abundance. BEDLAM has some but overall the album is less cohesive as the other two. This is a very loud and rocking album. Be careful when you first listen to the opening number "Aberinkula"- it will knock your speakers down. 12 tracks are here with not really a bad one among them. It does tend to drag a bit in a few places but overall, I can give this 3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4 stars
