That's the first time I've seen Pridgen wear a shirt. Outstanding.

Awesome. The Mars Volta and their other projects are constantly pushing the envelope.

I really want my 5th time seeing Volta to be at Rothbury! Sherwood Forest is calling out to you Omar and Cedric...

omars solo shit and quintet stuff is leagues beyond TMV nowadays, TMV are kinda getting stale.

I agree. His solo stuff is far more focused I think. Don't get me wrong I still love Volta but I really wanna see this quintet live sometime. Great video!

this is the sickness for sure! Volta shall never be stale, they are always re-inventing themselves, Omar is just a mad man that needs to put oun different facets of his art, in different forms.

Solo stuff more focused?? practically every song is one long jam!! EPIC

speaking of melting walls, check this shit out..

That's a pretty rockin' video. Perhaps it's now time for me to get into The Mars Volta, esp. considering they're playing Roo. Any tips on what albums I should pick up, folks?
