Album Review: The Mars Volta by The Mars Volta

The Mars Volta swerves the bang and goes for a snap, crackle and pop. It only feels like yesterday I was reviewing the previously unreleased version of De-Loused, to commemorate the band's discography getting a much-needed vinyl re-release. In that Landscape Tantrums review, I mentioned the band had been out of commission for nearly ten years and that their absence was sorely felt in the rock genre. Without their creativity being poured into the scene, the removal of their idiosyncratic influence left a chronic void that was yet to be filled by another artist.

Opinion: Excellent

The Mars Volta was always a mean of rebellion, a vessel for side-stepping expectations. Forged by brothers-at-arms Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala, they became known for wild solos and even wilder haircuts, blending progressive music, sci-fi drenched lyricism, and genre-less improvisation. This new album – self-titled – is their first in a decade, and it spins the dials once more.
