I'm sure some of you are familiar with Mars Volta and this album.

What I want to know is, was there a re-release of this album where they added some tracks at the end that wasn't on an original release?

My brother bought this CD yesterday and I don't have it in my hands right now, so I'm really confused, but my CD player says there are 12 tracks while all the websites say there are 15. And I'm suspecting the two 4 part tracks were compressed to one track each and they added three previously unreleased tracks at the end, since The Widow is track 2 and Cassandra Geminni: Tarantism is track 5.


And on a different note, now that I have given it a good listen and plan to give it some more good listening, I don't think it tops De-Loused In The Comatorium, although it does have some absolutely breath-taking moments. I also hear The Widow video clip is quite spectacular.

He also bought Scab Dates... bored the hell out of me.

Alright crisis over. Following the lyrics in the booklet I figured it out: Cygnus... Vismund Cygnus is all under track 1, The Widow is track 2, L' Via L' Viaquez is track 3, Miranda That Ghost Just Isn't Holy Anymore is all under track 4 and Cassandra Geminni is spread out over tracks 5 to 12... seems odd though as there are only 5 parts.

And I'm starting to like it a lot more than I initially did, and maybe it is better than De-Loused... I can't decide.
