    They put out a new album last year and toured. I would love it if they played since I've never had the opportunity to see them live, I've heard nothing but great things.

    Mars Volta is unbelievable...I was bent out of shape after their drummer died a couple years back...but the new guy (black kid with dreads) is just as unbeliavable...Omar and Cedric have this chemistry like JimmyPage/RobertPlant on stage thats fun to watch...they are gonna be around along time and they will keep getting bigger and bigger...and then 30 years from now they will be like Pink Floyd...

    I absolutely agree they should be back but they are a commodity for the LA kids so nobody gets excited...

    I've really wanted to see them for a while, i don't think people give them as much credit as they deserve

    when i saw them at detour...

    their "meh" stage show was only outdone by the absolutely shitty sound...

    some of the worst sound I have ever heard at a concert, and I LIKE TMV, everything sounded like distorted gibberish because of the shitty sound...

    The Mars Volta could have been the biggest band in the world but instead they'd rather jerk off on stage for 2 hours and on their records now I cant remember who said but they sure said it best

    I love TMV, in fact it's pretty rare for me to encounter people who didn't enjoy De-Loused (inb4peopleexploitthatstatement). I've yet to get the chance to see them but I'm not worried about never seeing them . I'd check them out unless there was a conflict that is rarer than usual.

    They keep getting worse and worse did you not understand the post?

    Deloused is amazing easily one of my favorite records of the past 10 years

    Francis is amazing as well but lacks in some areas still some of the greatest stuff out there

    Amputechture was good but you could start to hear their downfall

    and then there was Bedlam which was just absolute shittastic

    once again a great band willingly flush themselves down the shitter

    I agree. I was introduced with De-Loused and it was fucking AMAZING. Then when I started to explore their other shit (specifically Bedlam) and it was disappointing and a bit over the top.

    i did understand your post mister, i'm just not diggin your tunnel of perception. personally, they rock my world... inside out. especially, the bedlam in goliath. maybe you need to let go of how you think they should sound, and listen to what they've laid out. they've evolved.

    i saw them back in october....whew..they left me in a state of no words... just in awe.

    peace!

    tmv live is just painful and boring. I have seen them three times now, and although i will give them credit for tightening up their live show recently, it is still overall a boring and overly masturbatory experience. Stop dicking around and play the fucking song already.

    Bedlam is actually my favorite album by them and I never understood all the hate for it.

    I hope they show up at Coachella. I saw them open for the Chili Peppers in '06 and the sound really wasn't that great, but they just explode on stage with so much energy it's fantastic.

    Omar can turn a guitar solo into a 10 minute epic piece.

    Bedlam and Frances are my most favorite.

    please god no mars volta...they are so, so, so bad. i think they are doing it on purpose as a joke to everyone who goes to their shows. some borat type shit.

    then theyll release a movie in a couple years and everyone will see how retarded they were for being fooled into thinking they were a real band.

    I think they're a band that should stick to small, acoustically tuned environments like theaters. I've seen them twice in an arena, and seen the bit from the coachella DVD, and I have to say, it's just not comparable to their studio work. and I'm not griping about jamming. bands that can jam and stay heavy are few and far between (and for the last decade or so have almost always included josh homme), and on their albums, the mars volta offer, in essence, the best results of their jamming and sound-honing. but live, outdoors or in a large space, they just lose their texture and timbre.

    I saw The Mars Volta when all they had was Tremulant and Deloused, and that's the only way I'd ever want to see them. They are not going to be the next Pink Floyd. Shoot, they're not even going to be the next Jupiter's Ring.
