Review by Epignosis
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Eclectic Prog Team
2 stars Megaritual can be ruthless in its cacophony (more so at times than anything The Mars Volta has done), but also contains some very refined segments. Track markers seem to have been placed at haphazard intervals, so don't expect too many clean breaks. I can't say I thought anything was exceedingly good, but I can say that this is an album for those eager to hear the mastermind behind The Mars Volta team up with his brother Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez and tackle some Latin-infused heavy psychedelic music- no guarantees though.

"A Device Imagined to Turn" It wouldn't be an Omar Rodriguez-Lopez album if it didn't begin with extraterrestrial electronic noises and disharmonious guitar playing. The track is over halfway through before anything coherent happens, and even then is on the avant-garde psychedelic side of things.

"Screaming Babies Inside Out" This is a noisy continuation of the first track, swamped with fuzz and heavy phase-shifter effects. The last bit has a pleasing Latin groove immersed with electronic sounds that unfortunately doesn't stay long.

"At the Push of a Button" The Latin groove returns along with some thankfully tasteful guitar playing.

"Bells at the Slipstream" I like the light drumming here, and the multiple guitars weave an interesting, if loud, fabric, while the younger brother's electronic sounds bore holes through it.

"Good Is Repaid With Evil" This piece has some pleasant piano, and sounds a bit like Porcupine Tree infused with busy electronic factors.

"Panta Section" A heavy fusion piece with several lively guitars, a funky bass groove, and excellent percussion, this one intersperses jamming over an easy-to-follow rhythm with cacophonic and hard-to-digest passages.

"Hands Vs. Helix" This is about as ludicrous as it gets, with those warbling guitar tones over giddy noises and a Willy Wonka-like rhythm. Veruca Salt is not impressed, and neither am I, although this piece is admittedly fun.

"Dispanec Triage" That melancholic piano returns, this time accompanied by effects and a guitar sound that actually add to the feel rather than distract from it. Overall, the longest track is one of true post-rock and sheer beauty.

"Dead Hisses to Match Our Own" This has some of the best guitar work on the album, and ultimately salvages it for me- the arrangement is killer. While this album dawdled throughout most of its time, it finished in a stellar way. It would have been better if someone had not messed with the time-stretching effects, which almost ruin it.

4 stars Unlike some of his other solo albums/projects, Megaritual is a consistent, coherent album. If Omar Rodriguez Lopez has got some sort of issue with the electric guitar, it doesn't show here. (It didn't show at TMV's live shows at The Roundhouse in London in July 08 either). This is fundamentally ... (read more)

3 stars Nothing new here...but that's ok by me. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has certainly done his fair share of recording over the past few years, and Megaritual is yet another album put together during his time in Amsterdam. The entire album is instrumental with only he and his brother Marcel as the credited ... (read more)
