You can tell that just from the mixed reviews this new album's had from critics.
I wouldn't call myself the biggest Mars Volta fan, just becasue i don't listen to some of the stuff of Frances The Mute a huge amount, and Amputechture hasn't got anywhere as much listening time as De-loused. When i first got De-loused, i realised that the sheer power of the music appealed to me, along with cedric's vocal melodies, which really soar in my opinion.
Sometimes the whole thing sounds like a crazy mess, especailly some of Omar's guitar madness, lol. But when they come together again, its amazing.
