The Mars Volta's Bedlam in Goliath Album Review, Stream and MP3 Download

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2008 at 1:40 PM


The Southwest's louder-than-fuck prog rockers the Mars Volta just released Bedlam in Goliath, and early reviews seem positive. Here's a link to the legal Napster streaming the whole damn thing. And here are two quasilegal links to downloads of the Bsongs "Wax Simulcra," and "Goliath".

Lastly, here's an excerpt of the Prog archives review:

"If you're not a huge fan of what TMV has done before, then there are only a few songs you'll probably enjoy. I'm surprised that there are a lot of different-sounding songs on the album; ever since Omar started pooping out solo albums in 2006, I've been very skeptical of where The Mars Volta would go next. But they did good."

Full Village Voice Media review next week, cus we need time to think about it. Have you heard it? What's your verdict? --ASD Staff Report

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
