4 stars Mars Volta's masterpiece so far. I never get bored of listening to this album, but I do get bored of some parts of the album. I have to say that nowadays it doesn't keep me on the edge of my seat as it used to, and I actually find some of the more interesting parts boring, so that's why I only give it four stars. Not because it's bad, it's great, but it looses replay value very quickly once you understand what the hell the musicians are trying to do and how they are transferring those feelings that they want expressed to the listener. If you want to start a Mars Volta collection start here...and stick to it for a'll get the music eventually...even though some people think Mars Volta has no melody they need to stick to it a bit more, their melodies are done with dissonant chords and notes so it all sounds off until your mind puts it together, and somehow lowers the speed of the song to hear each little note.
Tasartir | 4/5 |
