Re: The Mars Volta

I actually consider The Mars Volta to be progressive rock.

Re: The Mars Volta

I saw these guys open for The Pixies and was absolutely bored senseless.

Sorry.

Re: The Mars Volta

I think they're pretty damn great.
De-Loused was great and I'm definitely getting Frances the Mute

Re: The Mars Volta

their first album was very good, but did go a little over the top at times. From what I've heard from the new album, it sounds very similar, but with a little more classic rock influence and with guitar solos that were not totally warped with effects. Hopefully they'll continue to improve, because the band members have always had talent.

That's one thing I will admit: they are very talented musicians, especially the drummer. I just can't stand their music.

Re: The Mars Volta

I picked up Frances The Mute a couple weeks ago as my introudction to them, and I quite liked what I heard

Re: The Mars Volta

I got myself a copy of Frances the Mute from a friend. I haven't given it much attention. Besides, I'm into punk lately, and my musical palate rejects anything that's too progressive.

Does this mean you may change your opinion of the Ramones?

Re: The Mars Volta

I've been on a punk "kick" since before I joined this forum, although it's just now peaking, since it was such a radical change from the prog that I was into before. I haven't listened to any Ramones since I've recently gotten into punk rock. I was probably judging from what I heard during my prog days.
So to answer your question: maybe, but I do recall not liking their stuff in the past. But as I said, that was before my musical taste turned to punk.

Re: The Mars Volta

Listened to them while high for the first time last night. Pretty trippy, interesting stuff. Not sure how I'd like it while not under the influence of substances.
