The third song on the album, Roulette Dares serves as a great show opener and is a tune that carries many different types of music within it; mostly rock and jazz. Unlike other songs that try to blend the two, this song actually flows well, leading from one section to another with little disorientation to the listener.
This song shows a great range in dynamics, with the song going from blisteringly loud to insanely quiet in only a beat. This ability for the band to do that and the fact that the songs were written that way can make the album a frustrating listen since the album is compresses to (nearly) garbage. I love the album, and would love an "unmastered" or "high dynamic range" version of the album, the songs deserve it.
This is an upgrade from sideshows customs. A while ago I spoke to him about updating various Mars Volta Tracks. All credits for the original drum-only custom go to sideshow and ItalianStal1ion. I added guitar, bass, and vox, and made some minor changes to the drum part.
- Added keys
- Added venue
