I can't wait for the new album, I'm actually waiting to hear it compared to other albums I didn't wait to listen for.

Circa Survive sounds nothing like The Mars Volta. And I agree that "Living Together" is the best song on the album.

Extremely well written review, but the end made me feel that the writer felt his opinion was absolute ("if you don't find something new with every spin, you aren't listening hard enough"). Kinda icky.

I think he meant that it sounded like TMV in the experimentation respect, not necessarily the overall sound.

Never said they did. Said "Recommended if you like." Big difference amigo.

Hehe, didn't mean to sound like that. I'll try to be less "icky" next time :-)

Not even close.

I'm surprised about the 10 for vocals. I know Green is good, but probably not better than his instrumental counterparts in the band. I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out for sure.

For me, it is just hard to imagine anyone else signing on this record like Anthony does, and that is why I scored his vocals so high.
