"The Bedlam in Goliath" is The Mars Volta's fourth long player and is based on the band's experiences with an Ouija board bought in Jerusalem.

The Mars Volta's brain-frying stuff has always left me cold and, while the latest material still has the full array of over-the-top instrumentation, bonkers lyrics and Cedric Bixler Zavala's soaring falsetto vocal cords, there are more than a few decent tunes.

"Aberinkula" surges out of the speakers with mock operatic choruses and frenetic percussion, creating a level of energy seldom reached again in the whole album.

"Wax Simulacra" is a song simultaneously taking off in several directions while failing to go anywhere remotely interesting.
And at more than eight minutes long, "Goliath" is grandiose and pleased with itself, foaming at the mouth with pseudo mysticism, seeking attention like a hyperactive child.

Insanely indulgent? Original and inspired?
At least you can never accuse The Mars Volta of lacking adventure. This is about as adventurous as it gets.
Highlights : "Aberinkula" and "Soothsayer".

A scouring soprano sax solo cuts across the songs’s midsection, and that vibe spreads throughout Bedlam, but so does the most pervasive melding of herky-jerk rhythms, post-punk speed, uber-funk bass, and chaotic riffage that you’re likely to find in rock & roll. If it’s Bedlam you want, you can’t miss here.
