    I'm sure this album will get plenty of bad reviews, just because the reviewers can't handle the music. I think this is their best work yet. The inclusion of three extra musicians has expanded their sound with the music becoming more accesible while at the same time being more inaccesible than ever. There's an abundance of breaks, licks, weird rhythms and interesting I'm sure this album will get plenty of bad reviews, just because the reviewers can't handle the music.

The songs are really, really catchy but in a way that you'll only consider accesible when you into really weird and complex music. Ofcourse Spin is gonna hate it! Those guys think Fall Out Boy's new album is "creative"! Haha.. this is the first great album of 2007 and almost a genre unto its own. Expand

    [It] has a charm that transcends your typical noise-splunk band. [Mar 2007, p.145]
  2. An album that is as fiercely imaginative as any the Sacramento-based group has released before.
  3. Imagine The Mars Volta's swollen red super-giant bursting beyond the constraints of mass and time and finally contracting to an all encompassing black-hole, sucking in Lightning Bolt’s heaviest riffs and The Boredoms’ most intense drum work after hurtling them to ‘n’ fro against all manner of cosmic debris.
