His first in the Amsterdam series with the album artwork on picturedisk, how can any serious Omar and vinyl fan not seek this album?
This album is so full on jam that you feel almost there with them; long and improv-heavy tracks for the most part making great use of brass, there is also a middle-eastern sounding relaxed track on there, before the outro track which starts out sounding like a comical mid-80's cop show theme tune from american TV and progresses out into total madness. The delivery did take about a week but it was coming from Austria I believe so that isn't bad in any way.
Immense album and not too easy to get hold of on vinyl, so if you get the chance be sure to buy it.

This entirely instrumental album is an interesting and somewhat dizzying offering from the mars voltas Omar Rodriguez Lopez.
There are only five songs, all of which are lengthy and dramatic with a fantastic combination of instruments rarely used together in such unique ways.
I should take a moment to give a warning - purist At the Drive-in fans should stay away aswell as any kids who have just seen a mars volta video and think this album will be 'cool'
A fine and well executed album that although is not very approachable offers a brilliant insight into the inner workings of; in my opinion, this generations most talented and under-rated improvisationalist.

well umm i got the frank zappa album 'hot rats' about 2 years ago and really really liked it, i dont know much about that genre of long long compositions as well as i would like to, but i would say that of all the stuff that is around nowadays, this album is the closest thing to hot rats that i can find.
i give this album 3 stars at the moment, but only because ive had the album for about 2 months, and this is an album that takes alot of listens and i still don't think i have digested it properly.
if you have never bought an omar album befor, i would suggest a manual dexterity volume 1 befor buying this, and of course the mars volta albums (although the songs on here dont share too much in common with MV)

this was one of Omars first solo releases, and it's totally instrumental i would strongly recommend Apocalypse inside of an orange over this album, as not only does the album have some of the same ideas in it, but the production and delivery is much better, in my opinion. The tracks have enough going on to keep you interested without wanting to press the skip button. hope this review helps

Treads Familiar Ground with a Difference 1 April 2006
By Zachary A. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is not as much a divine revelation as others here might lead you to believe. It certainly has nothing on Omar's more challenging and diverse solo offering, _A Manual Dexterity_ (see my review on that). This album is fun, has some scintillating moments, and even unexpected turns (Omar playing sitar!), but it offers few advances on the tradition from which it arises: funky jazz fusion a la Miles.

The only things that differentiate Omar from his more advanced forebear, John McLaughlin, is that Omar is more concerned with Hispanic rhythms (which is great!) and that where McLaughlin offers exotic scales in strategic placement over exotic modes, taking the guitar to places it had never been before (hear him on the albums from Miles Davis's _Bitches Brew_ to around the time of _Jack Johnson_ and also on anything by Mahavishnu Orchestra), Omar runs out of scalar sophistication and instead resorts to formless dissonance and outright noise. Now, I am a big fan of formless dissonance and outright noise (I am the biggest fan of Stockhausen that I have ever known), but on these Latin fusion jams, these strategies turn into a distraction after the fifth time or so Omar resorts to them after some particularly refreshing guitar workouts.

What I am trying to say is this: This album is a decent jam session. It is far short of the voice of God, though. The musicianship, outside of what I have spoken of in regards to Omar's leads, is all in all decent. Another highlight is Adrian Terraza's horn contributions. I hope he continues to be highlighted more in Mars Volta. The rest of the musicianship I can take or leave. Omar's brother is a competent drummer, but only that. The bass parts, handled mostly by Omar, are mostly repetitive and largely uninspired bass runs, my only complaint about Mars Volta's last album as well. The rest of the band goes completely free for long stretches, why not the bass? (Listen more to Charlie Haden's playing on Ornette Coleman albums, guys; master free-jazz bass lines on the next album and I will call Mars Volta the best rock band hands down since Radiohead.)

Lest you think I protest too much, this album IS good. It's more inspiring than 90% of the music coming out today. Its main use, though, is to get me dreaming of where Mars Volta will be on the next album. If Omar keeps honing his chops more in the direction of John McLaughlin, if they continue to integrate Latino rhythms in new ways, if Terraza's horns continue to take the band out there, and they keep on throwing my brain curveballs, then great. As far as paying twenty-five bucks for the jam session that hints to me the future directions of Volta, well, I am obviously a fanatic. Would most people think these moderately-inspired jams worth all this money? I doubt it.

madness and madness 10 Jan. 2006
By N. Metzger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is another great solo effort by Omar, and a must have for any die hard fans. Atonal guitar freakouts abound next to some very nice jazz florishes. The addition of the saxophone and sitar add something that was missing from A Manual Dexterity (not to take away anything from that album). The sound is more lush and accomplished, but at the same time still very experimental sounding. Omars solo efforts are a terrific companion to the Volta albums, but are also works of great skill and creativity on their own. Can't wait for Manual Dexterity Vol. 2.

Omar is God 18 Feb. 2006
By Bernie A. Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After receiving my copy in the mail, I could'nt wait to pop it in the cd player. Needless to say I was'nt dissapointed, it was everything I expected & more. It's a beautiful thing when a band like the Mars Volta comes along & just changes the landscape of music, I have'nt been this excited about a band since Radiohead came out with Bends & O.K.Computer. & Omar, although not the most technical guitar player on the planet, he is in my mind the most interesting. As I sit & listen to him I always wonder what he's going to do next, & to me that's what keeps me wanting more. The album itself is very much Bitches Brew like, it's very unpredictable music wise. & Omar's playing reminds me of Santana on crack. The album reminds me of Caravanserai by Santana, & The Inner Mounting Flame by The Mahavishnu Orchestra

Just what you should expect 15 Jan. 2006
By L. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Omar prooves how experimental he really is in his 2nd solo album. Awesome freaky guitar effects and scales that don't quite make sense are used with passion. If you don't feel comfortable with music very far beyond the sphere of "pop" this is not for you. Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page fans who want to hear unconventional experimentation must give this a listen. But beware; listening to this should take up your whole attention. It is definately not background music.
