Great Album, but...,
This review is from: Wiretap Scars (Audio CD)
OK, well firstly lets establish one thing - Sparta are carrying the flame lit by At the Drive-in. Whereas Cedric and Omar went on to try and develop a new kind of sound and, in my opinion, have excelled at this with their new band "The Mars Volta" - the remnants of At the Drive-in have not really developed the sound they had and i feel that Jim Root's vocals will never live up to those of Cedric. They certaintly don't display the passion that they had with At the Drive-In.
It is a good album, but for At the Drive-In fans you might be better off checking out Snapcase's album "End Transmission" or even The Icarus Line's ASTOUNDING album "mono".
all in all it should have been so much better...
