Your'e here, welcome to de-loused. what took you so long?, 16 Sep 2004
you have arrived at my review for the mars voltas deloused in the comatorium. i hope u had a nice journey. Exit is on the left. On the subject of journeys, this time of a conceptual and not imaginary one, deloused is one. this is the journey of a friend the band once had who slipped in and out of a coma before dying. and just like comatorium a new word must be made up for describing this album. to pin a genre onto TMV would be blasphemy. on thing i would pin to them is that are without a doubt the best band writing music on this planet at the moment. If it was down to me the mars volta would have their own tv station and diplomatic immunity. Cedric bixlar sounds stirring and emotional beyond recogniton, omar as inventive as thomas edison, theodore unhumanly bangs out latin, rock,and jazz rythyms like hes never allowed to play drums again and ikey has enough smooth to cover a bowling alley. and even though you may believe me you really have to hear this album. it is everything good about music. energy,emotion, style, rythym and unpredictabilty on one cd. i think this album is yet to be recognised as one of best(im not joking) ever. it makes you feel good it makes you feel bad, and it makes you wail uncontrolably when no ones watching. Hurry up TMV im waiting for Frances the mute..
