The Mars Volta - Cotopaxi
Another Mars Volta classic. This song features a more typical or usual song structure that really wasn't a part of TMV's style (especially in the early days). Featuring energetic, bombastic playing from all members of the band, the bass and the drum part really shine in this track. Cedric Bixler-Zavala comes at this track with is usual high-octave/high-energy singing that i doubt anyone can sing along to, he's just singing way too high. Although Jon Theodor was out of the band at the point, Thomas Pridgen turns down the over-playing on this track while still maintaining the busy high-energy required for a Volta song. It's one of the shorter Volta songs, and although this might be "past their prime", this is still a great track to pick up!
