5.0 out of 5 stars Omars Finest, 7 Aug. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Xenophanes (Audio CD)
excellent work. this is probably my favourite work associated with The Mars Volta and i can already tell i am going to play this one to death. Everything that was awesome about The Mars Volta just got better (sorry Cedric Bixlar-Zavala). the vocals offered by Omar and Ximena are hypnotic when they are not euphoric, and the rhythms and musicianship will not disappoint. All songs are in spanish, but this is great for the person who speaks little or no Spanish as the ear is drawn more to the sounds rather than the meaning of the words. This makes each listen as fresh as the one before. Every track is plain awesome. A good balance of sounds throughout - this album will kick you in the knackers while kissing you on the face.

Fans of Mew or The Sound of Animals Fighting might appreciate this album

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased, 15 Oct. 2009

This review is from: Xenophanes (Audio CD)
I am very pleased with this album. If I was to relate it to any of The Mars Volta's meterial, it would be similar to Octohedron. In the sence that it feels a lot more pop than a lot of Omar's other work.

This album is all in Spanish, so don't expect to be able to sing a long haha.

The only reason why I have given this album four stars is because it took 8 days for it to arive. It should take a maximum of five days, so it was a bit annoing. But as far as the album goes this is five star meterial.
