Best The Mars Volta Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
The creepy, driving edge to this song paces along until the chorus, where an infectious hook goes round with the floor taken out. You're hopping on stones in a stream as a steady bass thumps beneath. But then when the bridge starts moving, the melody goes soaring, matched by octave-higher crooning, with the chords going around and gradually stepping ever higher, until the anthem reaches a climax in the final chorus. At last. And as if dripping, we fade into an eerie hum.
Their best song should be higher!
Amazing power in guitar and voice.
Seriously, no one listened to this song?
This is probably my favorite off of Deloused, albeit being the catchiest too.V 1 Comment
My favourite song, and that is not just because I'm latin American
Awesome chorus, drums, and vocals. The guitar is funky and the song overall is well constructed, easily my favorite song by them.
No one can open a song like The Mars Volta
Transitions are amazing. Great song, fast and full of energy.V 1 Comment
In my opinion, Zed and Two Naughts is possibly the best 'song' they've come up with in the last, oh, five or so years. Not since Cassandra have I heard a more compelling piece. The fact that it's at a wonderfully listenable length of less than six minutes is another treat. Noctourniquet is an amazing album.
Can't believe I had to add this song. It starts noisy and chaotic and then gradually ascends into something beautiful
This song is as eerie of an opener to an album as you will find. The very song that initially got me interested in The Mars Volta (I was late to the party...and what a party it was). I perhaps have a stronger liking for Cicatriz, L'via (Frusciante fan) and possibly even a few other tracks now, but in the first few weeks of listening to TMV, this is practically the only song that would get a play, Mars Volta or otherwise.
