4 stars I know there are many listeners ( and even The Mars Volta fans) who hates O-R-L solo works. And I understand them very well - it depends what are you searching in your music. Even TMV albums have quite controversial fame. Yes, they are noisy, dirty, with strange sounds combinations, not very clear structure (often), and many respectable listeners hate this chaos (and Cedric Bixler-Zavala vocals as well).

Then, speaking about many O-R-L solo albums, such kind of problem is only increasing. In this album ( as in many other his solo works) vocalist is the same. There are less order, more chaos, less structure and all music in whole is not mellow or pleasant. Even worst - this music isn't even heavy enough to be accepted by metalheadz. So - you really should be a strange person for listening such a crazy work.

If after all was said you're still interested, I can shortly tell you what can you expect there. Because of same vocals and similar roots, you will easy feel the connection between this album and any TMV work. Same melancholic if beauty acoustic/electric guitar tunes, same strange sound mixes, same voice. But - everything is much more chaotically mixed, without heaviness, but with strong psychedelic scent. With plenty of beautiful melodies, excellent guitar work, huge amount of jazz fusion arrangements, electronic loops.

Much more experimental, than any TMV album. It's understandable - TMV is commercial project, it brings fame and money. Solo works are usually commercial nonsense, but it's a laboratory for experiments and heaven for musician's soul. Not all materials there are of the same high value, some pieces are just sounding garbage. And what? If you really want to hear alive music with its nervous, soul and monsters inside - it's a best place. If you prefer a bit more polished (and respectable) product - go to TMV releases. And if you're really interested in The Mars Volta world - albums like this is "must have" ones for you.

P.S. Not for lovers of mellow music. Sorry.

4 stars This album gave me a lot more than I expected, and its the first album in a long while to do so. I have heard all the Mars Volta albums, excepting Bedlam in Goliath, which seems to be out in other places but not where I am, and this album is a distinctly new taste. I didn't care much for Deloused, ... (read more)
