“De-loused in the Comatorium”

The Mars Volta released the perfect gateway drug for their music by making this their debut album.  Sure, there are some crazy and very atypical moments on this album compared to most modern rock, but not nearly as crazy as what would follow in their subsequent offerings.  The atonal sounds and incredibly high falsettos that brought back prog-rock and jazz-fusion are abundant, but if ever there was a Mars Volta LP that most people could listen to, it is De-loused.
