Well i'm a huge atdi fan, been one for awhile and i can say that this is one of the best cd's they put out. It might only have 7 songs but who cares, these songs are sick!!
01 . Rascuache--One of my favorite songs by this band, just an awesome song, the way its put together everything flows perfectly. On a scale of 1-10 i'd give this song a 15, its sweet!!
02 . Proxima Centauri--This song kinda starts out alittle weird, kinda gives you that "What the hell?" type feel, but trust me it gets into a good song. Its just another perfectly put together song. 9/10
03 . Ursa Minor--A mellow song, some nice breakdowns towards the middle, the drumming is awesome towards the middle too. All in all a good song 9/10
04 . Heliotrope--This song is awesome, its pretty fast to start out with then breaks down to a slower pace but picks right back up. Awesome awesome song. 10/10
05 . Metronome Arthritis--This is such a sick song!! Its perfect, i really enjoi this song a lot. Kinda mellow, but at the same time its intense. 10/10
06 . 300 Mhz--This song really reminds me of The Mars Volta(another badass band you need to check out), just the way its played, its another winner 10/10
07 . 198d--A slow song, but a perfect way to end. This is a slow song but i tell you it gets intense further into it. 10/10
Well i don't know if this helped or not but just check this cd out, i know its only seven songs but they are awesome everyone of em. A lot of people think this is the best CD atdi put out, and i won't disagree, it is an awesome cd, but i like all they're cd's and can't really pick one over the other they are all just incredible. If your new to atdi then pick this cd up as soon as you can and every other album they have!! You will not be disappointed, i swear.

Of all of ATDI's albums, I'd have to say this one is my favorite. It's short, yes, but each of the songs is of such a high quality you feel like you're getting more than just 24 minutes of music. Some of the songs, like Metronome Arthritis, 198d, and Rascuache, just totally knocked me out. Metronome Arthritis, in particular, is one of the best songs I've ever heard. The breakdown:
1) Rascuache- one of the best songs, it's a really good way to start off the album. It's pretty fast paced and very catchy. As always, Cedric's vocals shine, even if the lyrics to this song make even less sense than they normally do.
2) Proxima Centauri- a very interesting song, in the way is speeds up and slows down. The lyrics have something to do with ancient Romans in space and mention things like "spacesuit togas"- wierd, but cool.
3) Ursa Minor- I had heard this song before I bought the album and I loved it- it's another pretty catchy song. It might take some getting used to, since it's kind of offbeat, but it's another great song.
4) Heliotrope- I love the way this song starts off- the guitars ath the beginning are extremely cool. It stays pretty fast the whole way through and it's got some interesting lyrics- "Inseminating motives of a lukewarm persistence/Let the thieves in through the front door/Let them take what they've been missing."
5) Metronome Arthritis- my favorite. It starts off slow and bass-heavy, very ominous, and slowly builds to a stunning climax- "What if forensics find the answer?/What if they stole my fingerprints?/Where did I leave my book of matches?/We'll find you." It's got a great solo near the end and the lyrics are the best on the whole album.

Frantic yet full of blissful arrangement, At the Drive-In's Vaya is one of their most complete pieces of work, seemlessly written and another original piece by an original band. Released in mid-1999, this album can be considered one of the main reasons that ATDI began to catch fire and prompted the marriage of Ross Robinson and Grand Royale for Relationship of Command.
Overall, this release demonstrates the many facets of ATDI: slowed down, dramatic songs and energetic speedy anthems. Cedric's voice and lyrics are both flawless, adding the most interesting dynamic to the band's tight rhythm section. As a whole, the EP manages to encapsulate the best ATDI moments in the short twenty minutes: "Racsuache" with it's ambient feeling and pushing chords, "Ursa Minor"'s powerful chorus and breakdown, and the dramatic and flowing "198d".
While most people have been introduced to ATDI due to the phenomenal success and critical ravings of Relationship of Command, even a casual listener would and can appreciate the music on this and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in dynamic music. The sound of ATDI is uniquely theirs and comes out in full force on this CD, making it essential for the fan and an interesting gift to the uninitiated.

More polished than In Casino Out and more electronic and Radioheadesque than Relationship Of Command, Vaya is an interesting little sidetrip between the two worlds, and I say little because the overall cd's a little less than 24 minutes long. Very hard to describe, there's still the punk emo influence but just a world unto it's own...
The lyrics are ofcourse awesome, beautifully poetic, futuristic, and incapable of description. Songs such as "Metronome Arthritis" reflect shades of political veiwing or even paranoia ("What if forensics finds the answers? What if they stole my fingerprints?" Cedric says), "Ursa Minor" seems like it's telling a tale of future oppressions of gravity police and such ("propeller snapped/decapitated while you slept upon your pillow/inertia kisses those around me")...
"Heliotrope" might have references to religious conspiracy, "Proxima Centauri" is an intergalctic droolfest involving ancient Romans in space...the crazy vocal blabbering at the end of "300Mhz" is a nice experience...the overall effect of this EP is a sound experiment signal sent via satellite from another planet. It's also a good and relatively cheap installment to get if you want to sample ATDI. Afterwards, you'll want to try out their actual albums.
