    Hehhehehe, saw them live.

    They sounded like a jumbled incoherent mess of instruments. The people tripping on hallucinagens liked it though.



    Some of their album stuff is A-OK though.

    sry, I wanted to get my view in. ehheheeeeeeee

    I've seen all three versions of this band live.... At The Drive-In, Sparta, and Mars Volta. Mars Volta definitely puts on a trippy show, and Rolling Stone says they put on the best live show going. I wasn't on mushrooms so I was at a disadvantage. I liked their music better when they were At the Drive In.
    I hope that donkey doesn't have a heinie troll!

    Frusciante is a legend and can kick Omar's playing style any day of the week.




    Good cover as well.

    Great improv.

    Well it is all opinion, but I think Frusciante is on a completely different level of muscianship and skill with his music. A more enlightened level.

    I will say that the best solo on the latest MV album was JF's. hehehe

    He's ok. He's no Mars Volta or Tool, but not bad.

    Their music is something you have to be in the mood for...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Frusciante and Flea have both done extensive work on Mars Volta albums...

    I saw them open for A Perfect Circle. Music, not bad. The show they put on was pretty cool though.

    Well, I will disagree.

    But there is no real point in arguing this sort of thing because it is simply something that can't be argued.
