5.0 out of 5 stars The Mars Voltas 'Mainstream' Album?, 28 Aug. 2009
This review is from: The Bedlam in Goliath (Audio CD)
this is the most accessible mars volta album in my opinion. Previous Mars Volta albums seemed to take a ferw listens to grow on me. this album on the other hand delivers the goods straight to the family jewels in a reletively no-nonsense manner. the lengthy improvs and minimalist atmospherics of previous albums are absent, in favour of an abundance of comapratively dancible Jimi hendrix/Tom morello-esque acid/funk riffs, booty-shakin latino percusion and phat dub beats to keep the album drivin alon at a lively and sexy pace. i would recommend this album to anyone new to the sound of the TMV or anyone who liked the Deloused in the Comatorium album but felt alienated by the subsequent releases.

On the other hand, if you are drawn to the more unrestrained, wildly experimental side of the Mars Volta, why not try Omar Rodriguez-Lopez solo work, particularly 'An Apocalypse inside of an Orange', 'Cryptomnesia' and the collaborative album with Lydia Lunch.
