67. De-Loused In The Comatorium

I picked this up on the cheap in the summer, knowing that the Mars Volta were the sort of band that could possibly be amazing, and different. They are an acquired taste, I'd only listening to this a couple of times (and not with my full atention) before today, but after having discussed it in depth (its plot of speculative fiction, the musicianship, its influences and its influence etc) last night with a huge MV fan, who rates them as up there with Tool and Radiohead in the top 3 bands on the planet that are still recording.
Flea played bass on 9 out of 10 tracks on this album, its produced by Rick Rubin, At The Drive-In were great, this is different, really prog-gy, really good.
