Des deux formations issues du sabordage des telluriques At The Drive-In, Sparta s'est rapidement placée comme dépositaire de l'héritage viscéralement rock du gang d'El Paso, sans toutefois arriver totalement à combler le vide laissé par les sécessionnistes partis former Mars Volta. Tremulant, le premier EP de ces derniers, ainsi que leur projet dub Defacto, avaient annoncé la couleur, ou plutôt les couleurs : Cedric Bixler et Omar Rodriguez sont, eux, nettement plus enclins à réformer et à injecter des sons divers dans leur univers musical halluciné. Confirmation avec ce premier album. De-loused In The Comatorium est une sorte de choc culturel à grande vitesse entre rock progressif, punk, psychédélisme, funk, jazz, ou, en schématisant, entre Hawkwind, Sly And The Family Stone et le Pink Floyd des origines. Forcément, pour faire entrer autant de choses en aussi peu de place, les morceaux s'étirent sur de longues minutes disloquées en plusieurs mouvements. Traversée de saillies d'orgues, de rafales de percussions, de bruitages électroniques et portée vers les nues par la voix de Bixler, la musique de Mars Volta n'en oublie pas pour autant de garder les pieds sur terre en capitalisant sur de solides bases mélodiques et la virulence intacte des guitares. Ce sont sans doute là deux atouts majeurs qui éviteront que l'on soit pris d'étourdissements, une fois happé dans les loopings concentriques que décrit cette uvre psychotrope et fiévreuse. --Fabrice Privé

Reading some of the other reviews here you can tell some of them probably didn't listen to the whole cd or listen to certain songs the whole way through (like the 12 minutes of cicatriz esp, my favorite song on the whole cd), or they probably believe Nickelback makes good "hard" rock (no offense to trendy music listeners cause I listen to rap/hip hop and pop rock stuff too), or they believe the price of the cd means its not that good (come on now, it was released over a year ago, of course its $10), or maybe some of them just liked Sparta over The Mars Volta, but regardless, this is some of the best music I've heard ever. And who cares if what the singer says doesnt make sense? It fits in perfectly with the music alot better than most groups with lyrics that actually make sense. You must be crazy if you're actually buying a cd based on what the singer is saying!
The only person who I showed showed this music and they told me they didn't like it turned out to be a hardcore sparta fan. My brother likes it, my little sister likes it, and all my friends do too. If you end up not liking it, check your head.
This tornado of sound navigates itself through 61 minutes, meticulously avoiding anything that could be confused for a hook or sustainable melody. It almost succeeds when with nine minutes left we come upon the CD's final track warmly entitled, "Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt". The song's first half almost resembles a single, however as if to reconcile for the lapse in judgment, the bit dives into a good minute of scattershot guitar noodling before then launching into a surprisingly cohesive and extended solo. Earlier in the disc, (and I highlight the album out of order in honor of its disregard for conventional direction) we rifle between sonic diatribes and lyrical fits about "exoskeletons" and "stumbling upon a slipstream of stubble and rash urine stains where the warming of marrow drew comfort from this blanketless train". (Inhale) Yes we do.Read more ›
De-Loused In the Comatorium is a CD I encountered quite by accident and so I bought it on a whim. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting music and there was something about the packaging that told me I was in for a great musical ride. And so I was!
Several reviewers mentioned Led Zeppelin as a point of reference for use when describing this music. Yes, indeed, but it is also much more than that. The music and the lyrics are arresting, demanding the listener's attention from start to finish. These guys are top-flight musicians.
I like the entire CD, but to me the highlights are Inertiatic Esp, Roulette Dares, Eriatarka, and Cicatriz Esp. The enigmatic liner notes in the accompanying booklet add a jolt to the tension generated by the music.
My musical interests run wide and deep. This CD is one of the most unusual and compelling I've heard this year. If a streak of musical adventure runs through you, I highly recommend that you get this nightmarish yet wonderful recording. You won't be disappointed.

When ADTI (an amazing band as well) split up I had no idea something even better would come up. When I first listened to Sparta, I thought Oh man, not as good as ATDI. Read morePublished on June 15 2004 by who brought me here?
