I think it could be an A minor chord, maybe with the open D string. I dont know what that's called. Am/D? or D/Am? I doubt Omar knows either.

But he's got the A note with his pinkie on the 4th string, the E note on the second string, and the C on the third string which makes Am

Yeah thats an awesome video. I stumbled on it one day looking for videos of john frusciante, and I was like hey, these are three of my favorite musicians jamming. Good stuff. Theres another one on youtube or google video from the same session.

Mars Volta has the potential to make a great record, they just have to understand what they do well and what they don't. People said about some double albums, oh you could have made a perfect single album. Frances the Mute is the extreme example...you could have cut an album half that length and not even lost a single song. Just cut the noise. What in god's name do you need those additional two minutes for at the end of The Widow? It's a mindblowing song, great vocals, lyrics, guitar solo, trumpet, organ. They're incredibly talented musicians, but they really need to take a hard look at the final product if they want to be great in my book.

widow is faaaaaaar from their worst song. it's certainly not chaotic like a lot of the other stuff, more traditional structure, but the song itself is superior to most. same with televators. they're very good at writing those kinds of songs.

I only have Deloused, and I was wondering: is it worth getting Frances? Or is Deloused better?

I personally like Frances the Mute better, but it depends whether or not you like structured songs more, because if you do, keep deloused.

theres jon theordore, (virtuso drummer) juan alberete or something (base) and ikey ownes (keboard) plus a load of sax, clarinet and flute players making it about a 9 peice sometimes. but omar and cedric are the main creative force i think


btw, theres rumours the new album will be titled 'Amputechture' not sure of the release date, august 24th i read somewhere. production by Rich Costey, art work done by 'storm'. theres also a frances the mute remix album in the works and a dvd

I saw the Mars Volta at a concert last year, I was only there for System Of A Down.

I dont know about them yet, they seemed pretty trippy to me but i couldn't understand what they we're saying. sooo yeah what album should I buy if i were to go ahead and try to listen to them?

well seeing as how there are only two albums, i would say buy both

de-loused in the comatorium is spacier/trippier and has a lot of really solid songs on it
Frances the mute is just...bigger, longer despite having 5 songs.

either way you win
