Easily the greatest band of our time, if not all time.

If you aren't familiar with them, or are only slighty, let me know. I'll hook you up.

I've only heard those that you posted on your Downloading thread. I like what I've heard so far. I also recently downloaded the song, Televators.

Televators is the most mellow song from that album. Great, atmospheric song.
Check out the video for it, too.

I remember when I was really into Dreamtheater, people were mentioning I should "transition" my listening habits over to them. I never really did, though. I think I heard one of their songs. Maybe. I eventually went on to Liquid Tension Experiment, and now, I barely listen to any prog rock anymore Crying or Very sad .

They're pretty awesome. Not too many successful instrumentally talented musicians around today so thumbs up for The Mars Volta. They tend to go a bit pretentious* at times with long silences, inane lyrics and crappy fillers** but the majority of their stuff is solid. Eriatarka is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard, amazing ensemble piece. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Zam3qALUuk

I'd rate them highly among prog-rock bands.

*Marked by an unwarranted claim to importance or distinction

**Tool is guilty of this too I'm afraid.

I agree with you on everything, except the pretention bit. They certainly could come off as pretentions, considering the nature of the lyrics, and the fact that 2 of their 3 LP's are concept albums, but the band themselves, mainly Omar and Cedric, are two of the most humble, down to earth guys ever. They just don't give a shit. They don't care if they ever sell a single album, and it shows. They make the music they want to hear, that no one else can or will make.
