Been listening to lots of ATD this week, and feck they were amazing.
Mars Volta, where do you stand>
2nd album = Pretty good
3rd album = Gay (with like, two good tracks)
before jumping off in a Cedric-esque manner
in terms of enjoyment...
but if forced to choose, I'd choose ATDI
The band that got me 'into' music as it were. I love them in so many ways, it's RIDICULOUS.
but I listened again recently and didn't like it so much. It all sounds very righteous and earnest, but doesn't really say anything. Not to my ears, anyway.
but before that they were fantastic. The second half of In Casino Out is amazing beyond belief as is the first half of Acrobatic Tenement. Vaya is probably my favourite. The song with the scary backwards bit is astonishingly good.
Uhhh...which bits, exactly?
the most 'I really liked their early stuff' comment ever.
I got into them through my brother who was really into his punk and such and didn't really like Relationship when I got round to it. The first one I really liked a lot of was In Casino Out as I was quite an emo kid and it sounded a lot like Sunny Day Real Estate and other bands I liked.
Vaya was also like this but also a bit proggy and odd which I liked and continue to like but somehow apart from a few songs Relationship of Command is too much for me. I probably haven't listened to it enough or something as everyone seems to think it's their best but somehow what I like about the band the most is the snappy fast ones.
I even like that El Gran Orgo record which everyone seems to think should be deleted and forgotten.
The Mars Volta really don't do it for me either though I did see them in Prague when the Tremulant EP came out and they were one of the best acts I've ever seen. It was a tiny room and the performance was just perfect. The drums especially.
really like el gran orgo.
really pop punk but very enjoyable.
probably my favourite pop punk song.
im shocked at how much vaya love there is here. theres never normally this much.
its my favourite too.
in fact, it was recently named 4th greatest album of all time by Christopher Alcxxk of Drownedinsound.com
even if if just for Rascuache
is amazing, dont care about the rest
Wasting my air is one angry piece of music. Bless those smack heads.
- one must be factually accurate in these matters.
did they not do smack as well?
i was pretty sure they did.
drugs are cool.
THIS IS FOREVER !!!
