4 stars It really grabbed a hold of me on first listen but these songs, although progressive and farily "new" in approach, didnt hold up to the next couple of listens. Nevertheless, it is better then FTM and any fan would enjoy this very much. For Instance - The intro to Tetragrammatation is awesome! That is the standout track, an awesome epic. Days of the Bathomets has a good riff. Lots of really good noise and production throughout... Definatly a good album but seemed a 5 star on first listen which disinegrated to a 4. Mars Volta fan? GET IT! Prog fan? Umm if you feel like it...
