4.0 out of 5 stars Proper bo selecta!, 1 April 2003

This review is from: 30 Seconds To Mars (Audio CD)
The reasons behind buying albums always interests me; did you hear the album from a friend, or on music tv? etc etc. I have to confess, somewhat sadly that I bought this album through being a massive My So-Called Life fan (thus having always adored Jared Leto, in what I think his best role....controversial!) and reading an article about the forthcoming album on mscl.com!
Any MSCL fans will no doubt already know from the song 'Red' seen on the show, as I did that frontman Jared Leto has got an amazing voice (kinda like Chino Marino [Deftones] without the whine) and he doesn't disappoint in this debut album. That teamed with good lyrics of a sci-fi subject, a drummer playing along the same lines as Danny Carey of Tool, the fantasy meets somewhat glam overtones and produces a modern sound, refreshing in this era of same-old:same-old new metal.
Capicorn [a brand new name] is a great starter to the album, but if that doesn't get you hooked, I found the subdued Echelon was a good middle point to build out from. It took some effort to get into the mood of this album, but like other good bands e.g. Tool, the more time it takes to get to know/like the album, the longer you will love it. This one is a definite 'grower' (Balladie 2002).
If you like A Perfect Circle, Deftones, Tool and Pink Floyd (to a degree) then you should definately try it and give it some time.....happy listening! :)
