The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute mp3 album
Frances the Mute is the second studio album by American progressive rock band The Mars Volta released in February 2005 on Gold Standard Laboratories and Universal. Produced by guitarist and songwriter Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, the album incorporates dub, ambient, Latin and jazz influences, and is the first to feature bassist Juan Alderete and percussionist Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez
Other portions of Frances the Mute are murky and distant, like field recordings from the ocean floor, while still others shift drastically between brittle acoustics and a stuttering, guitar-led volatility that threatens to crack open the earth. Its constant shifts mean the record is claustrophobic and even dizzying; it demands perseverance. But it's great when a blast of a trumpet cuts through a gloomy moment, and Bixler-Zavala's vocals are a thread to reality.
With their second album, The Mars Volta prove that in prog rock, more is more. But Frances isn't overstuffed. Vismund Cygnus" becomes a speedy, lysergic blast of Latin jazz. L'Via L'Viaquez" flits between earthquaking blues rock and eerie salsa.
This is The Mars Volta at their most explorative and imaginative! I hear talk of self-indulgence and it's absolutely absurd. Their album "Bedlam in Goliath" is a clear example of over-indulgence. They could've done something incredible and instead we have endless sitar playing with nothing interesting to look forward to after it.
Thursday, January 24, 2013. The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute (2CD). The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute. soniclovenoize double album reconstruction). Vismund Cygnus 3. The Widow 4. L'Via L'Viaquez This is a reconstruction of what The Mars Volta’s 2005 album Frances The Mute was supposed to be, notably with the addition of the title track crossfaded into Cygnus. to open the album, as well as the closing 30-minute epic Cassandra Gemini reunited as one track, instead of split into eight pieces. The main source used for my reconstruction was a high quality vinyl rip to secure the dynamics that were lost on the overly compressed and brickwalled CD version. My Frances The Mute reconstruction is thus divided into two 45-minute discs, hence its subtitle.
On March 1st, The Mars Volta will be releasing their 2nd full length album, entitled "Frances the Mute". With 5 tracks, coming in at just under 80 minutes, this album covers an enormous range of sound and emotion. They also enlist the help of John Fruiscante on one track, and Flea plays the trumpet in another song theres some good songs spaced out over cooky effects. but no songs that ill be singing along to like i do with Deloused less vocals and keyboards.
They really wanted to do six acts and started the album with "Frances the Mute" but it would have made it a double CD, of which Universal disapproved. The lyrics to "Frances the Mute" appears in the CD tray and the actual song was released as a UK CD and US vinyl single). On the back of the CD is an outline of each character's song. This is not correspond to the number of tracks on the actual CD.
