Listened to the album a month or so ago, and TBH it lacks the energy of their previous albums. A step backwards for them IMO. I think their El Groupo Nuevo release was way better, and sounded a lot more like what we'd expect from Omar and Cedric.

I love The Mars Volta, I saw them 2007 BDO, I missed them at 2004 because it conflicted with Muse playing, which was real stupid on organises behalf... f**k Iggy Pop.
