One of the Best Albums I've ever heard,
This review is from: Relationship Of Command (Audio CD)
Neither The Mars Volta or Sparta will ever compare to At The Drive-In and no other ATD-I album is as good as this, they're all excellent but this is the best. Personally i think it's one of the greatest albums of all time.
That said, I can understand why you might not like this, his lyrics are highly metaphorical, Cedric doesn't have a great singing voice (although I love his voice) and he tends to shout alot and the music can be completely crazy at times.
If you don't like this sort of music, or haven't ever heard anything by ATD-I i wouldn't advise buying this album as you may be in for a suprise if this isn't your thing.
If you do like this style of music this album is an essential.
Although the whole album is perfect, My favourites are: One Armed Scissor, Pattern Against User, Cosmonaut, Arcarsenal, Manequin Republic, Enfilade and Non-Zero Possibilty
I have listed over half the album, but that's becuase it's so hard to choose!
I always think it's a shame I'll never get to see any of this stuff played live =[
