...the closest you will ever get to the best music ever invented.
The Mars Volta is an eargasm addiction, give me my daily fix of vitamins T-M-V now!

Everything else just sounds so...boring

Band that caters to striving pseudo-intellectuals. Looks deep and meaningful on the surface, but has no more substance than 80's butt-rock (hair) music.

The Mars Volta and System of a Down, while their music is pleasing to listen to, and seems to have deep lyrics are pretty shallow. They rely on simple-minded bush bashing (SOAD) and big words haphazardly thrown together (The Mars Volta) to sound creative, unique, and hardcore.

Prog-like band which fuses prog, blues, a bit of jazz, and of course, internal headphone gravy. Some despise them. Some bow to them. All and all, a great band regardless.

A band that originated in Texas from post-punk At the Drive In, (also a great band), and decided to reform to develop numerous concept albums. The first, being De-Loused in the Comatorium (the story of a past band member Julio Venegas who commited suicide), is a masterpiece, blending Latin roots (some members are hispanic), trademark post-punk rock riffs, jazzy interludes, progressive and experimental synthesization and much more to create a deep, emotion-filled record. Their recent release, Frances the Mute, is just as legendary, yet focuses more on the song length and digital paraphernalia rather than conventional song-structure. And for the Mars Volta, this is definetely a good thing.
The Mars Volta are indeed a special group of musicians. Their cd booklets are strewn with philosophical and aesthetically stimulating images and words, fueling their contemplative sound. They cross many boundaries and break the barrier between conformity and musical subconsciousness. They are madly orginal and insanely creative.

Prog band from Texas. Mixes alot of Salsa, and Jazz with there straight foward prog-rock. Amazing lyrics, will blow your mind. Your ears will orgasm to Omars wicked guitar while you listen to Cedrics voice.
"Frances the Mute is one bad ass song." (Notice I said song, not album
"Frances the Mute is one bad ass album"
"De-Loused is better than Frances the Mute album."

The best and most original band in the world. This band does not fall under any category of music. They are their own stuff. The music they make is so fucking crazy it makes you want to jiz your pants. After the break up of the band At the Drive-in, mars volta was born. And what a wonderful thing that was.
-Hey bud, whats that stain on your pants?
-Oh shit, I must of been listening to Mars Volta.
