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
