"The Bedlam In Goliath",
This review is from: The Bedlam in Goliath (Audio CD)
i must agree with those who feel this is the best Mars Volta album to date.
it has been a blast seeing this band grow and evolve since "De-loused In The Comatorium" (in my mind, another absolutely priceless album), and, again, i have to side with those who see the most far-reaching expirimentations of "Frances The Mute" and "Amputecture" come astonishingly full-circle in the ferocioulsy focused bolt of of pure power that is album no. four.
my top three tracks from this record would be no. 7 "cavalettas", no. 10 "ouroborous" and no. 3 "ilyena", on which Cedric delivers some of his most phenominal vocal work to date (which, indeed, is saying something).
that being said, there is nothing on this record that i would skip. to play this album start-to-finish and enjoy it as a whole work is just about as awesome a musical experience i have ever had.
a new masterpiece from a band of truly exceptional artist. LOVE these guys!
