The first Mars Volta album that does not hold a central theme or concept, Amputechture still feels very much like something massive and epic. Never a band to be easily pigeonholed, Amputechture constantly pulls and pushes in opposite directions. The Mars Volta are visionaries for a nation of music listeners who have all but lost their faith in music that both challenges and rewards at the same time.

Reviews:

''Amputechture'' is the third full-length studio album by American progressive rock band The Mars Volta, released on September 12, 2006 on Gold Standard Laboratories and Universal Records. The album debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 selling over 59,000 copies in its opening week and an estimated 400,000 copies as of 2009. The album marks the final appearance of drummer Jon Theodore, and is the first studio album to feature guitarist and sound manipulator Paul Hinojos, formerly of At the Drive-In and Sparta. - Wikipedia

How can there not be a Mars Volta song title generator on the web? Seriously, who else could concoct a tracklist that includes "El Ciervo Vulnerado," "Asilos Magdalena," and "Meccamputechture," other than a Santana and Brian Wilson after a three-day sandbox bender? Whatever. Our dancing shoes are on.
