Best The Mars Volta Songs
The Contenders: Page 3
Can't believe I had to add this song. It starts noisy and chaotic and then gradually ascends into something beautiful
A ridiculously underrated, underrepresented "demo" (It's basically a finished song)
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.
This song (and this album) have a starkly alternative vibe from previous Volta songs and albums. Noctourniquet in particular is my favorite from this album. The song itself has a smooth ongoing rhythm to it which is paired perfectly with the dark off putting lyrical melodies. Three fourths of the way through the song the rhythm of the verse switches to a reggae groove which is very surprising and a nice contrast since the song is rather dark.
