My favorite excerpt from an album review.

metacritic.com has an excerpt from a dotmusic review of The Mars Volta's Frances the Mute. It reads as follows:

An incredibly accomplished record, a true testament to the band’s imagination, intellectual curiosity and outrageous musical talent.... Unfortunately, “Frances The Mute” is also awful.


Other choice excerps from the review:

There may be moments of brilliance (and there are many), but the overall effect is one of gibberish, of Attention Deficit Syndrome with a record company advance.
...
The Mars Volta are to be applauded for releasing an album which is so obviously designed to please themselves. But the rest of us are not obliged to join them.

You can read the entire review here.
