This band usually gets hit with the "prog rock" label by lazy journalists, which is only a fraction of an accurate discription of the kind of music they make. Still the words "progressive" and then "rock" are probably one of the easiest ways to sum them up. Progression is key, these are the guys that broke up their previous band right as it was becoming a potential cash cow just because they felt bored and limited by the music. Anyone who states that The Mars Volta will NEVER top their first album definitely cannot see the band's intentions. Which are PROGRESS! and avoiding boredom. and making crazy sick music. But it's cool, like what you like, it just must have been annoying when Cedric was asking people who worship the early LPs to "put our first two records under your pillow, maybe the tooth fairy will come, you never understood us anyway."

This record is a psychotic, beautiful, nonstop-genius-hardcore sonic art project from hell. The Mars Volta is the greatest band on the planet and this is the greatest album they've released to date.

Where "Frances the Mute", and to an even greater degree "Amputechture", had failed in enabling The Mars Volta to find their new voice after the odd but accessable brilliance of "DeLoused...", "Bedlam in Goliath" finally marries the two halves of the band into one cohesive, listenable whole. The songs here feel like they actually have somewhere to go, but the scenery on the way is just as interesting, and once the songs reach that destination, the album is simply dynamite. The experimentation here seems focused instead of the earlier jamming wankery of the previous two albums, and the addition of a new and highly skilled drummer that continually impresses throughout the record make this their first post-DeLoused success, in my opinion, and a top contender for album of the year.

the only mars volta album to do a justice to them is and still remains deloused period they will never achieve what they had on that album nor will they ever I personally love them and am speaking straight from my heart which aches everytime they release another album which will always pale in comparision to deloused nonetheless i still buy every one and am always dissappointed. My loyalty to them will forever remain even if i disagree with the direction they are going in. They are the future of what is to come.....

The Mars Volta just take your brain and turn it into mush with this CD. The addition of Thomas Pridgen as their new drummer just make the attack even more brutal. This album is just 100% craziness... IT'S AMAZING!

I love this album!!! I love the odd time signatures and the massive drum attacks. I also think that this is TMV's most accessable album to date. Stand out tracks: Metatron, Wax Simulcra, Cavalettas. Check this album out.

The Mars Volta is one of those rare bands that is able to keep coming out with amazing albums one after the other. This album is just an assault on the senses. From the begining it is a loud brilliant work of art that the guys from volta do best. This album is just controled chaos. If you were a fan of the other albums you will love this one.
