    I think of this song as "anti-pop." It's so ugly, seemingly purposefully, that it's some form of art. That doesn't mean people have to like it. I do, personally.

    Wow, this track seems to be pretty polarizing.

    You know, I really like Noctourniquet. It's dark and unsettling and beautiful and haunting. But this track. My God. I can't listen to it. I skip it every time. It is the only Volta track I skip. It's just painful.

    This is easily the least accessible song on the album, but I fucking love it.

    Try getting it on vinyl and get rid of at least some loudness..

    Mars Volta with a taste of electro. The drumming is neat, and the disjointed feeling, as if a tape was cut up and pasted back together.
