Steve is a big fan. "De-loused in the Commatorium" was his number 1 pick in cd essentials. I think they are brilliant. Some of the most intersting songs I've ever hear. Cedric Bixler's lyrics are amazing. The band will blow you away live as well.

I believe you are referring to, "The Mars Volta" ...and yes. They do rock!

I have one of their albums (Frances the mute). It's cool, interesting. Not my favorite but worth listening to.

I hear the passion in their music and understand why people like them. Still it doesn`t change the fact that they`re not my cup of tea.

Don't know much about them but I do know that their bassplayer is Juan/John Alderete and people might remember him as the bassplayer from Racer X (with Paul Gilbert) :)

Get their first one, Deloused in the Comatorium, that one is a more consistent album and s tighter and more focused and might be more accessible too...

Haha, recalling all of your posts I have seen on the forum, I often wonder, what DO you actually like munchocruncho? :wink: Even thought I don't agree with your opinion on TMV, I still have a massive ammount of respect for you, just because you are related to Felix Pappalardi!!!!! :shock: :D
