So, I walk into FYE yesterday afternoon, and what is it that I find for sale at $11.99???....only the most kick-@$$ cd I've bought in a while-ok, ok, the ONLY cd I've bought in a while, I'm poor.

I wanted to get but Frances the Mute , yah, know, four extra bucks that i ended up spending on the most freaking AWESOME muffins at Frulatti-but I diverge.

De-Loused In the Comatorium is one of the most original rock albums I've listened to ever. It's got some blues, some Latin flavor, some vocals worthy of Thom Yorke and Matthew Bellamy, and some Santana-ish guitar solos.

I'm listening to Eriatarka (track #6) right now. Kind of Pink Floydish in the quieter moments of psychedelic guitar solos. The drum part is a bit like John Bonham's in Moby Dick.

    You cant compare the mars volta with any other rock band. They are in the're own genre. The track Take the veil cerpin taxt is one of my favourites. Did you know the singer and gutarist are from a band called at the drive in, which is and incredibly different sound to the mars volta.

    The Mars Volta are fantastic. I'll be seeing them live this fall, opening for the Chili Peppers (I'm going for the Mars Volta, honestly). But FYE ripped you off. I got their album for 9.99, and it wasn't even on sale.

    Really? No bands live? I mean, I haven't been to a lot, but I've seen most of my favorite bands live. Definitely try to get to some shows!

    The Mars Volta are the greatest band i've seen live yet. I saw them last summer in Finland for the first time. About At The Drive-In: Omar and Cedric were in the band until omar wanted out (sort of right before their breakthrough). At The Drive-In was probably more popular than TMV is nowadays but nowhere as good. The other members of ATDI formed Sparta, which is actually a pretty crappy band.
