Product Description

Coming from the ashes of At The Drive In in 2001, Mars Volta have established themselves as one of the most experimental, eclectic and fascinating bands of the new millennium. And in an age when baldness is the norm, hope is restored when a collective as way-out as this bunch can rub shoulders in the Billboard Top 10 with this years 'Pop Idols' and whatever else is being force-fed to the unquestioning masses. Mars Volta - The Lowdown is a two disc set featuring one CD of fascinating interviews with the group at different stages in their career and in which they set the agenda for their ideas, ruminate on their manifesto and prove themselves to be amongst the sharpest brains in show-business. The set alsofeatures the history of At The Drive In as an audio biography with band interview clips. Finished with booklets, poster, slipcase and rare photographs throughout, this set provides the full lowdown on a group who refuse to conform!

AVOID (opensource, opensource, opensource) 12 Jun. 2009
By Alaric - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The interview disc features content that is already all over the internet: on youtube, in transcript ect. You'll be spared the time to rip it from wherever, but that is all you'll have paid for. It runs in reverse order chronologically -Bedlam to Deloused.

The ATDI disc is a read biographical report, nothing special and not quite garbage.

This reviewer finds it nice to have these things on a hard copy and in good quality (even if the known video corresponding to some of them is absent), but this set will likely enrage anyone coming to it with higher expectations.

CD of Interviews 18 Sept. 2011
By A.Berlanga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As noted this is a compilation of interviews. It is pretty interesting but it is a CD worth of interviews and commentary. One reviewer is correct about the open source, at least for a portion that I recognized. I did buy this expecting music to be thrown in it, but it was my fault for not reading the description. I do think these guys are one of the best musicans out there on many levels. That said this CD is something I would of prefered to have borrowed from a library, and is not something I am going to play reguraly or possibly even rarely.
