Customer Reviews


What an extraordinary band, they played a single 20 minute encore song before System of a Down came on and stole the show. Like santana on speed, they reminded me of of the pure energy of seeing Janes Addiction in the tiny I-beam on Haight St. way back when. This track was played easily for 15 minutes and epitomized their unique fusion of latin, jazz and rock. Incredible musicians! See them live!

The full version is MUCH better

This "radio edit" is only 4 and a half minutes long. The real version of the song is over 12 minutes long- that's almost 3x! The Mars Volta is an AMAZING band, and their albums are "concept albums"- you have to listen to the whole thing to get a good idea of the feel of each song.

When all the worms come crawling out of your hair...

Don't listen to them. This song is great as it is in Frances the Mute, you'd be crazy to buy this one. If you haven't already been re-directed to that CD by another reviewer, just go and get it already!

Although their previous band's demise ultimately arrived before they were able to truly capitalize on their mounting commercial triumphs, the Mars Volta immediately impressed with their willingness to eschew conventional logic and push themselves...
