The Bedlam in Goliath

Ok, I really wasn't anticipating the Mars Volta's newest release to be as awesome as it is. Maybe due to the disappointment I had with their prior album "Amputechture". But this new one reminds me of the first time I listened to "Frances the Mute". These guys really show their rhythmic strength and vocal hooks. I keep finding myself humming parts of the songs over and over again as though they were haunting me from another realm. The drummer is crazy, the guitarist is insane, and how the hell can vocals that high come out of a man? Not to mention the messed up concepts these guys come up with for their albums. I will take my time driving in to work tomorrow so I can make sure to enjoy the sounds of this new Mars Volta album played loudly through my car stereo.
Check it out.
