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

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.
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.
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.

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.Read more ›

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.
