The Mars Volta - Amputechture

The Mars Volta's new album Amputechture, is in stores tomorrow. Or you can listen to the entire album today. It's streaming at their Myspace. I think the album is OK. It's The Mars Volta. Nothing really new here. Hardcore TMV fans will like it. Pitchfork will slam it tomorrow. I predict maybe 2.4. (Update: I was close, 3.5) Pitchfork is so silly. They like albums with songs, and this isn't a song album. There are no singles, no standout songs at all. While this isn't much of an album, I will say this: I don't think that TMV are really about albums. They're about their live show. And these songs will be great live.

Speaking of TMV live, can they please please please play somewhere in NYC. I'm not going to the shitty Continental Airlines Arena. No chance in hell.
