The Southwest's louder-than-fuck prog rockers the Mars Volta just released Bedlam in Goliath, and early reviews seem positive. Here's a link to the legal Napster streaming the whole damn thing. And here are two quasilegal links to downloads of the Bsongs "Wax Simulcra," and "Goliath".

Lastly, here's an excerpt of the Prog archives review:

"If you're not a huge fan of what TMV has done before, then there are only a few songs you'll probably enjoy. I'm surprised that there are a lot of different-sounding songs on the album; ever since Omar started pooping out solo albums in 2006, I've been very skeptical of where The Mars Volta would go next. But they did good."

Full Village Voice Media review next week, cus we need time to think about it. Have you heard it? What's your verdict? --ASD Staff Report
