Led Zeppelin on high doses of every psychedelic imaginable...?

I can't really compare them. They're pretty unique. Definately check them out if the show isn't sold out already... which I'm suprised if it's not, since most of their upcoming shows are.

Yeah, something like that. Half of the band made the mars volta and the other half made some other band...I can't remember what their name is though.

They have a great sound, but I think their lyrics suck from what I've read, kinda like they just used random words that had nothign to do with anything. Still decent music though.

Unique, yeah. Led Zeppelin though...I dunno. Mars Volta is way more pretentiously art-rock. They try too hard IMO.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

i like the mars volta for what they're worth. i also got the impression that their lyrics are a bit sub-par, but the music is certainly worthwhile.

i think the other band you guys are thinking of is Sparta?
