Default Re: The Mars Volta - Bedlam In Goliath

One thing i don't understand is how a lot of people who really liked De-loused, also love Frances, but less so the newer stuff...

I would say that the new album is closer to De-loused than Frances the mute was, just becasue of the fact that the songs are 'songs' rather than 12 minute instrumental 'journeys'.

I agree that after some listening, pridgen's playing doesn't 'fit' into the music in the way that Jon Theodore's did. But, theres nothing we can do about that now, and he does a damn good job...
