The Mars Volta's De-Loused in the Comatorium

The debut album of the Mars Volta will be released on the 24th and is going to be awesome. I'm not too familiar with the band but the 3 songs I've heard from the album were amazing. And Best Buy and Circuit City should have a great price on it since it's a new band. (MSRP=$12.99, BB preorder price=$9.99 so it should be around $6.99-$7.99 on release week). Don't miss out on one of the best releases of the year!

I've got an advanced promo copy of the cd and it's absolutely stunning. It's better than Sparta and At the Drive-In were combined. Cedric (the singer, also from ATDI) has worked on his voice a lot and sounds great. It really doesn't even sound like ATDI most of the time. Truly awesome album.

yeah I saw them open up for Red Hot Chili Peppers and
Queens of the Stone Age.

They were really loud and the album should be great.

Can't wait til the 24th.

My fiancee' loved ATDI and was sad when they broke up. I didn't really care for their music. When Sparta formed, she was happy again and I took her to their concert. I liked Sparta alot more than ATDI. The songs just sounded better to me. I heard some of The Mars Volta and do not like it one bit. My fiancee' hasn't formed an opinion on them yet, but I think she still likes Sparta better.

UPDATED POST

My fiancee' reminded me that when we went to see Sparta the singer had laryngitis and they still rocked the place. As I suspected, she likes Sparta better than The Mars Volta.

I was a fan of ATDI but I feel the exact opposite. I think Sparta is good but a bit on the pedestrian side. Mars Volta on the other hand gives me chills.

This will be a deaf buy for me. Hope it beats Sparta.

Very interesting and good album. Much more progressive than I would have expected from this band. At certain times I swear I am listening to Rush or Yes.

Got this yesterday and am really impressed. I had their Tremulant EP and anxiously awaited this album. WOW! They definitely have the Prog. influence, with a nice edge. Very cool stuff IMO. I wonder what their videos will be like.

I also picked up Interpol's "Turn on the bright lights", which has been out a while now, and recommend it as well.

Very progressive, I am completely blown away by this album. The way the songs are put together is incredible, and cedric's voice is fantastic.

This does alot more for me than ATDI or sparta ever did.

Best album of 2003, beats out Radiohead by quite a bit
