2 stars A very strange electronic music album with vocals sometimes (thankfully not always!) reminiscent to David Lynch's 'Crazy Clown Time', 'Octopus Live Aid', the twenty-fourth solo album by extremelly prolific solo artist and The Mars Volta mastermind Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, seems to be a compilation of dance rhythms, minimalist synthesised sounds & loops built together in a surreal sound sequence.

Not really a fascinating journey, this album is very monotonous and intended only for hardcore Omar Rodriguez-Lopez fans only.

There's really nothing more to say about this LP; the only somewhat interesting track here is 'Worlds Get In The Way', but it really have a little difference from everything else on this record.

Overall rating: 4/10. Not recommended to start listening to Omar Rodriguez-Lopez from this album, he has much more interesting records in his vast discography.

ole-the-first | 2/5 |
