mars volta Vs Sparta,
By A Customer
This review is from: Wiretap Scars (Audio CD)
hmmm, everyone seems to be just comparing Sparta with The Mars Volta, fair enough its an obvious comparison to make but they have both gone in totally different directions and shouldnt be compared. Its like comparing Newsnight to The Simpsons. That said, this album is a must buy for any punk, rock, metal or emo fan. It has a great blend of melodic tunes and more angry rock for whatever mood your in. Songs such as the beautiful 'Collapse' and the thumping, 'Cut Your Ribbon' are highlights. Buy this album AND De-Loused in the Comatorium by The Mars Volta like I did and you'll love them both in very different ways.
