The Mars Volta
Frances The Mute (Universal Records)

By: Mike SOS

The Mars Volta have outdone themselves on FRANCES THE MUTE, a tripped out, multi-faceted journey of space rock via salsa music and lush ambiance. Yeah, it's way crazier than the last one, and that's saying a lot. Be ready for Spanglish lyrics, an unabashed flurry of adventurous fretwork, Flea on the trumpet, and endless waves of droning noise sounding as if it came from a sci-fi movie soundtrack. As well as the most challenging 76 minutes you'll spend with a CD. Guaranteed.
