Listening to these guys right now... how great is all of their stuff? Every album has its own character, every song is so well-crafted, everything about the band is amazing. I'm a huge Mars Volta fan, and I also really like Sparta. Both bands seem to be doing pretty well and At The Drive-In may finally be put in the past. But if that's the case I'd just like to pay respects to At The Drive-In for being an amazing, truly influential band. Imploding at its very prime, the band never went downhill. The whole story of their hiatus is pretty legendary, in a "better to burn out than to fade away" kind of way. But the music speaks for itself. Quite simple songs, odd lyrics at times... but so much energy, originality, and emotion. Truly a great rock band.
