The Mars Volta - Octahedron

at martes, noviembre 17, 2009

2009. USA
Progressive Rock/Experimental

Excentric rock band The Mars Volta was funded by guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López and vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala. The band is widely known for their experimentation, latin music influence, sometimes nosense lyrics and live improvisation.

Their fifth full-length album Octhaedron comes right after The Bedlam in Goliath but represents quite a turn to the late mentioned. Considered by the band an acoustic album, it's right away more mellow and song-centered than the previous efforts, which results strange but indeed satisfying as they manage surprisingly well to write this kind of music too. This doesn't mean we won't find songs from the frantic and savage trademark side of the band, but definitely to a lower degree.

I personally applaud the album as a step forward in their so far brilliant career, they proved that even after having explored almost every heterodox weird sound existing possible is never late to pick up the acoustic and write some music classic style.

  • Copernicus: Beautiful ballad, relaxing and inspiring.
  • Teflon: Amazing groovy song, great drum work. (*Can take days to get the chorus out of your head)
