Review by Marty McFly
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Errors and Omissions Team
1 stars When Omar was drunk one day, he decided that creating this monster can be quite a good idea. It is not, sadly, but I can understand that year 2k9 wasn't completely fine for everyone. Or maybe only certain months, period of weeks, because some his other releases from the same year sounds good, or even great.

This is dark, but dark as void. Cold, but as empty tomb, where you're not enjoying the fun, because it fails to terrify you. This ain't progression, nor experimentation, because this is just circling around one tone. Let me state that all tracks sounds basically the same. And I don't mean that they are let's say all symphonic, or all upbeat (like "the same" when talking about other albums), but they're alike. There's no difference between them and it's quite sad. This album doesn't provide anything interesting, not even for fans. Who would enjoy this after all, except those who likes to suffer from terrible sound. Again, I don't mean terrible as in Extreme/Death Metal, because EDM can be quite interesting and some may see perfection in it, something that even I can understand (and sometimes see myself). But this is blasphemy. Trap for bold listeners, who venture to explore new realms of prog, only to find this ugly, abandoned, one eyed, filled with body tumors and crippled child that haunts waters of "Prog" label it carry because of other albums.

1(-), because this is absolute opposite of what I can like. Or enjoy. Or consider interesting. Or Proggy. Or even listenable.

2 stars Being a big fan of The Mars Volta, naturally I'd like to hear all of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez's solo albums and side projects as well. So I picked this up very recently and gave it a spin. Firstly, can I say that I have no problem with artists and musicians who decide to carry out full-on experiment ... (read more)
