Product Description

Amazon.ca

Après moult concerts –, histoire de roder son répertoire – le quatuor californien 30 Seconds To Mars sort un premier opus plus que prometteur. Cependant, il est difficile, à l'écoute de ce disque, d'imaginer la direction esthétique que prendra le groupe par la suite. Il semblerait que la formation se borne, avec un brio nulle part pris en défaut, à faire le tour de ses influences en forme de panorama des musiques des trois dernières décennies du XXe siècle ! Progressif çà et là, new wave ou post-punk par ailleurs, voire flirtant avec l'indus, 30 Seconds To Mars ratisse très large sans jamais sombrer dans l'opportunisme : grosso modo, de Pink Floyd à Tool ! --Hervé Comte

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Surprise June 17 2004
By T. Hall
Format:Audio CD
One day I heard a video playing on tv. It was so different from the usual Green Day knock-off bands you hear so much now. I only caught the last minute of the song but I didn't catch their name. I kept thinking "boy, that singer sure looks like that pretty-boy, Jared Leto, but it can't be!" I finally caught the video again months later, then got the CD.
Good music for me gives you de ja vu, but yet sounds like nothing else. Theme-wise, it seems to be about rebirth, beginnings, and ends. Musically, it combines guitar and synthesizers nicely (like Orgy does opposed to how some 80s metal did!). It creates a majestic feel (not apocalyptic or doomy feel).
It's quite interesting just trying to describe it. I wavered between a 4 and 5. The first two tracks alone got a 5 with me. I don't always subtract points for the use of cliches. Cliches are cliches because often they are simply true. For this being their first piece of work, they show excellent potential for evolution. It got a 5 in the end because it took me to a new place, and that's all I'm searching for in my music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average rock band June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of this band when I went to see Incubus in concert and 30STM opened the show. My friend told me that he was Jared Leto from Fight CLub, but he had not heard their music either. Needless to say once they opened with what I knew later to be "Capricorn" I was amazed. Jared is an lively front man with blistering guitar and amazing voice. Once their 40 minute set was over I went to the concession area and purchaced their album. On the drive home we listened to most of the album. It was on a constant loop for about two weeks home and work.
Their music sounds as if you mixed a little bit of Tool, a dash of Pink FLoyd and then add a special seasoning. This is a gem from the very beginning to the beginning again. Quite possibly one of the best albums that I have in my collection and one of the best rock shows that I've seen. Truly unique and a breath of fresh air in the wave of disposable music.
Take a listen before you buy, but I think you will be happy with the results.

5.0 out of 5 stars few albums will move you like this one... March 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
it only takes one word to describe this album...aweinspiring. in a medium that continues to blame their parents for failed relationships, the content of this album is a breath of fresh air. on the same page as great artists as pink floyd and tool (LOOSLEY!!), the prog-rock nature of this album is captivating. the fact that Jared Leto (Requiem for a dream, Panic Room)is a famous actor is irrelevent. the landscape provided by this project is mezmerizing. like tool the lyrics are thought provoking, you think you know what he's saying, but after the second listen you get a new perspective on hte words themselves. the guitar work litterally bleeds through your speakers as if textured seven or eight times to get the thickness of a wall that they're trying to build around their own words. many people got a little taste of these guys on the radio with the single, Capricorn, but to put it modestly, they don't belong on radio. the artistic nature of the music would be lost on anybody not looking for something that would provok them to think and expirience solid emotion. a moving record from the least expected source is my vote for one of the most heart wrenching albums of the year.
side note--if you're not intrested in buying the album i URGE you to download "Oblivion"( the best track on the disc) and then tell me that you don't want to buy the record. that song alone is worth the price.
ENJOY!

5.0 out of 5 stars 30 SECONDS TO MARS - 30 SECONDS TO MARS Feb. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Oh my God! This has to be one of the greatest albums ever recorded. 30 Seconds To Mars are a band that nobody can even come close to comparing to. In my opinion, they're the most original band out there today. Their s/t debut album is full of so much potential. If the record label pushed them right, I think this could be a number one album. A friend of mine heard TSTM's song "Capricorn" about a year or so before it was ever released. This was back in the days of AuidoGalaxy. But the only version we could ever find for any of their songs was like the poorest quality you could ever hear. And the songs were still amazing. Needless to say, I think I was the first one to by this album in the Houston area. Words can't even begin to describe how amazing this album is, you just need to here it for yourself. And Jared Leto has an awesome voice. Everyone and their mom should give these guys a listen. My favorite songs include: Capricorn (A Brand New Name), Oblivion, Echelon, End of the Beginning, and 93 Million Miles.
01 - Capricorn (A Brand New Name) - 5/5
02 - Edge of the Earth - 4/5
03 - Fallen - 4/5
04 - Oblivion - 5/5
05 - Buddha For Mary - 4/5
06 - Echelon - 5/5
07 - Welcome To the Universe - 4/5
08 - Mission - 4/5
09 - End of the Beginning - 5/5
10 - 93 Million Miles - 5/5
11 - Year Zero - 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good Jan. 10 2004
By adrif
Format:Audio CD
When I started getting into this band, I had no idea it was Jared Leto's project. In fact, I really didn't care who Jared Leto was as an actor. Had I known about the hubbub, I would have avoided this at all costs, and missed out on a truly good band. The only star deduction (from 5 to 4) was taken for the space theme. It gets annoying at times.
As far as the tracks, I couldn't disagree with Chris from Louisiana more. Obviously this is a matter of opinion, but just in case there are people like me out there, I figured I'd toss in my 2 cents.
"Capricorn" is OK. It seems great when you hear it on the radio with the other tripe, but when you hear what else the band is capable of, it appears mediocre in comparison. I much prefer "Edge of the Earth".
"Fallen" is one of my favorites, and the chorus guitar and vocals bring to mind the "Thanks to Maynard James Keenan" in the liner notes. It is definitely the most Tool-esque (Aemina days) track. This, and "Buddha for Mary", are what break up the occasional monotony on the album and take it to the next level.
"Buddha for Mary" is the most striking track. The imagery is very disturbing, and the vocal processing fits. Also very heavy Tool-esque guitar pre-chorus. When people complain about over synthed voices, it brings to mind Cher and Madonna's techno experiments. That is not the case here. It is not processing for the sake of being technical or artistic, it adds to the song. I think the specific part he had a problem with is the first few lines. After that the song is very different, and he may not have made it past that.
"Oblivion" and "Echelon" are the most commercially accessible tracks on the album.

This CD blew me away in terms of producing. Man, you can't get beyond a track called Oblivion on this CD!!!! Very addictive.
Sort of spacey, atmospheric feel.
