Out Of Stock The Mars Volta - Octahedron (2xLP)
Octahedron - its eight songs carefully calculated theme - opens up more possibilities than we might have thought for the Mars Volta. It shows that for the first time they really can do restraint, without compromising the overall impact of the instances where things are let rip (musicomh.com). At the end, Octahedron is a solid album that probably has two slow songs too many. While previous albums tended to lean too far towards indie-prog insanity, this one leans too far in the other direction. But the band is still doing basically the same things they always have. They aren’t trying anything particularly new or adventurous here, they’ve just changed their ratio of slow-to-fast on its head. The result is that curious newcomers might feel more welcome listening to Octahedron, but they probably shouldn’t be fooled into thinking that this album is what the band is all about. However, existing fans of the band will find a lot to like about the album even with the usual craziness toned down a bit. (popmatters.com)

About: "...Octahedron is almost exactly the inverse of the formula the band has been following since they started. Instead of an album full of crazy prog-rock jams broken up by the occasional slow song, this album is dominated by slow ballads and mid-tempo rock songs and broken up by a couple of crazy, fast pieces."
