Omar Rodriguez-Lopez – Zapopan


Omar Rodriguez-Lopez


The love of synths and dive into sound manipulation (as previously done by others close to Omar) shines through on this release. This collection of songs is nothing more than reworked and reimagined selections from other solo albums (Unicorn Skeleton Mask & Saber, Querer, Osar y Callar) – however, I prefer the originals. Late era Mars Volta songs are really influenced by this period of experimentation, especially the increased use of electronics.

Grade: C

Favorite Track: Hollow Change/Archangel
