Mars Volta was supposed to open up for Snoop & The Chili Peppers when here in Atlanta last summer. I think one of the guys had just died and they had to cancel so it was just Snoop and RHCP.

Hey, I was at that show in Atlanta. It was unfortunate what happened. I don't like them, but I was still looking forward to checking them out live.

Brent D hardly ever says anything worthwhile. And I fail to see how TMV relates to Dream Theater

In the way that they focus on their shapeless sonic sound instead of worrying about crafting actual tunes. That album had no focus whatsoever. It is a perfect example of style over substance. However, these guys can be good songwriters when they want (see At the Drive-In). I guess they just wanted to try something new, but it didn't really work out in my opinion. Oh well, I still have hope for their second album.

TMV don't really float my boat..  I think I'll have to see them live to 'get them', but so far the album seems a bit all the same to me.

I like Sparta a lot more.

I didn't like this album at first listen. I was hoping for more of the ATDI vibe, but over the last couple months It has definetely grown on me and became one of my favorite albums of all time. Never heard them live but I just ordered a live album with 4 songs on it.

I can't really see that much similarity between The Mars Volta and any era of Pink Floyd, really.  Except maybe the vague "concept album" notion they ascribed to De-Loused.  Sonically, they're pretty divergent.

TMV does remind me a lot of certain King Crimson eras; they also have absorbed Santana, that's quite obvious several times on the album; and Yes, especially Fragile and Close to the Edge.  Mix all that in with, like, Fugazi, and you're close to the TMV sound.

Who's aware that Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, TMV Guitarist, is coming out with a solo album that is scoring his FILM project????

Sure, this can have its own thread, but I'm not really keen on the details, nor do I think there are many, at this point.
Just thought'd be awesome to share.

About six weeks ago my friend was talking about The Mars Volta and how the cover art on the album made him want to buy it. I was all like, hey, I own it, you can borrow it from me. He walked to my house at three in the freaking morning to come get it. I haven't seen him or the cd since.

























Actually, I have seen him but not the cd.
who likes movies anyway

I ordered their latest off Amazon.com almost blindly after only hearing a few 30 second clips of the tracks on this album. It sounds really damn good.

They actually released The Widow for the public last week, it's an amazing bluesy song. I cannot wait for this.
