Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (ORL) December's release is available for download from his site already. If still not too long ago with every of his new release often listener was afraid on getting some noisy and chaotic heavy mix (what happened time to time), with his ORL most recent releases the problem is different.

For some time he found out the heavy use of electronics on his solo releases, and this album is one between such series. All music is played by trio, without guest musicians or usual female vocals. But the music is not so different from what was released during few last months: deeply psychedelic (pop) rock with melodic tunes, overdose of electronic effects and noises, melancholic, obviously influenced by ORL some last Latin music flavoured albums. Omar sings himself all vocals, and besides of it all space is filled with loops and all possible electronic noises over the head.

This album is far from some earlier releases with bulk structure and raw improvs. Still enough experimental, it is much more easy listenable, better structured and in many places more remind experimental psyche-pop, than rock. Again, as often with ORL, he doesn't care too much about consistence of materials he releases as solo albums, so quite often compositions remind more blueprint or rehearsal versions for (possible) future The Mars Volta releases.

Not the best and not the worst ORL solo release. Really interesting one for artist's fans, for newcomers it's better to start from Omar's more essential albums.
