The Mars Volta – Amputechture

The Mars Volta

“Amputechture”

Admittedly, this album is not for everyone, but if you do gravitate towards the unconventional side of music, this might be the perfect album for you (at least most of it).  I do not know if I could love a song more than “Tetragrammaton”, it’s on a short-list of “all-time favorites”, and the rest of the album is just as insane, intense, and awkward as this nearly 17 minute stand-out.  Throw this album on (vinyl, if you can), crank up your headphones, turn out the lights, and let your mind wander…

Grade: A-

Favorite Track: Tetragrammaton

Second Favorite: Vicarious Atonement
