The four "ACTS" on this EP are actually excellent pieces of music but I'd like to start a petition, get about 10,000 signatures on it, and show it to all the bands who are trying to create something "original," "epic," or "profound........"

Do you know what the header of this petition would read?

THIS MANY PEOPLE CAN'T STOMACH ANYMORE "ARTISTIC" AMBIENT INTERLUDES


Anyway, here's to hoping I don't have to press the "skip forward" button every other track on the new album.

I really see where you're coming from....

You are right about the interludes on both Mars Volta albums: De-Loused interludes = effective and Frances the Mute interludes = detrimental to the album.

And while there are certainly plenty more examples of garbage-interludes than tactful ones there are few bands that use ambience to their advantage, such as:

Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky
