Each of their CD's has some sort of flaw that makes it less than perfect.

Eunuch Provocateur (4/5)- A really cool rocked-out song with a good intro and three minutes of an electronic beat and weird noises to end the CD.
Andre 3000
If you're interested in "The Mars Volta" then this Ep should be a great introduction to their music for you.

One of the freshest new rock bands in years is the Mars Volta, a sort of space punk band that blasts in and out and leaves you dizzy. The EP "Tremulant" is a fierce little chunk of music that blends together a dozen different musical styles into a big glorious stew.
The EP features a mere three songs. "Cut That City" has a steady buildup before exploding to life. "Concertina" is a more conventional rock song, but it's always ready to twist when it seems to become ordinary. Closing track "Eunuch Provocateur" is a mind-blowing example of what Mars Volta does best: rapid-fire, loud and strange, with plenty of dizzying instrumental stretches.
The Mars Volta is not what most people think of as a rock band. They rock, sure. But they cram in about every musical style that shouldn't fit together: punk, funk, psychedelica Latin, a touch of jazz. And at the heart of it is art-rock. Rather than defying the standards of rock music, the Mars Volta grabs those standards and twists them into a Dali-esque sculpture.
It has the weird, science-fictiony lyrics that Mars Volta does so well, but it's hard to hear them. Cedric Bixler's high, thin voice bobs in and out of the explosive music, and at times you can catch little hints of things that don't seem to make sense. No matter. His voice sounds almost like another instrument being played, whether he's wailing or murmuring.
"Tremulant" is a good intro to Mars Volta's full-length debut, the magnificent sonic avalanche "De-Loused in the Comatorium." The only problem is the hunger for more it leaves in its wake.

The Mars Volta, with Jeremy Michael Ward, creating great music, I believe this is when they finally got their style, if you listen at the concerts they did before releasing this EP, it seems like they had an idea already, but they were working on their style on those european tours, after which they got to the studio and made this.

3 songs, less than 20 mins, but it seems like a whole hour when you listen at it closely, maybe because of the complexity of the songs. I had heard de-facto and had gotten to admire Jeremy Michael Ward, but when I got this, I couldn't believe the masterpiece he did on this record (as well as the other musicians) I'm sure he's responsible for putting on eunuch provocateur a hidden record that when you play the track backwards you can listen at a little girl singing a kinder-garden song in slow motion and then sayin: ¨Did mom or daddy ever had to spank you¨,I know it's sick but it's great, even in de-loused there's stuff like that, at least in Drunkship of lanterns when you play it backwards there's a second voice singing "it multiplies".

The Mars Volta is such an epic band, you gotta listen at their albums several times and play some tracks backwards to get the whole picture, for me they have re-defined the word art.

When At The Drive-In, probably the greatest post-indie/punk band ever (and easily the best of the late '90s) went on "indefinite hiatus", the band basically split in two parts; Sparta and The Mars Volta. The split was pretty much down the middle, the guys with 'fros went to TMV, those without went to Sparta. TMV took the unpredictable, experimental attributes of ATDI, Sparta took the catchy, radio-friendly side. While Sparta quickly produced an album and went on tour with Weezer, TMV took a little longer to get themselves together. But enough about Sparta, this review isn't about them.
What The Mars Volta has given the music world with this EP is a peek at the future. This band is going to be a major contributor to the evolution of music over the next few years, provided they can keep it together. The Tremulant EP, although only 3 tracks, is a (approx.)20 minute assault of intense, ethereal, and overall brillant music and it will leave you wanting more, guaranteed. Much like ATDI, TMV has a sound that no one will be able to duplicate. Buy this now, go see them on tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and count the days until their LP comes out.

The Mars Volta are the Pink FLoyd of tommorow. The tremulant ep is one of the most raw,energetic and beautiful albums ever made. Omars amazing ability to create a symphonic sound is the perfect complement for Cedrics desperate lyrics. This album define them as well as set them apart from their peers. With this step they cut off all ties to a.t.d.i. and become some entirely new. Experimental, passionate and uncompromising. This album sounds like reality itself bending. If you are a Mars Volta fan you should defintely own this. Tremulant sets the pace for TMV foward thinking sound. Be ready to fall victim to their undeniable talent.

a dizzying blend of angular rock, electronic tomfoolery, and psychadelic dealings galore. things take a very interesting turn within these 3 songs. beginning with a faint blip that echoes some old Pink Floyd material, the first cut explodes with a calculated fury that is both primal and highly intelligent. the second song has a bit of a dubby structure and is a highly effective and powerful piece of music. the final track is a nice ep closer that has a sustained electronic ending that leaves the listener wanting more and more. a nice teaser for their epic De-loused album.
