I'm creating this for one reason and one reason only: declaration of Warde's idiocy. The Mars Volta produced one 5-star album and two 3.5 to 4 star albums in a single fucking decade, you chodescraper. What other band has done that since the 1970s? And their most recent album was easily their best since their debut. These guys are murder. De-Loused is one of rock's all time great guitar records. Who cares that no one understands what Cedric is saying? That's the appeal. He's a space cadet, but when he croons in Espanish my little nipples stand at attention. Que amor fantastico metallico!
I'm sure you'll respond with some variation of "Well, that's just my opinion, man". Guess what? Opinions are not infallible. Many, many, many opinions are downright stupid - and yours re: MV is one of them. I like you, man, that's why I'm trying to help you realize what a failure you are.
Fuck prog. The Mars Volta are the best rock band of the last 10 years.
