If that doesn't describe "Cassandra Gemini" from Frances the Mute, then I don't know what does.

Now listening to "Metatron" off the new album. I have to say, I think it's really fucking good, and a lot less obtuse-sounding than most of Frances the Mute, which to me is the Mars Volta at their most over-indulgent.

But hey... to each his own.


I feel the opposite.
