Album

Calibration Is Pushing Luck and Key Too Far is the fifth studio album by Omar Rodríguez-López, and the fourth released in the Amsterdam series. The album was released in Japan on December 15, 2007 with a following U. release later on February 5, 2008, merely a week after The Mars Volta's The Bedlam in Goliath. The album art was illustrated by graffiti artist GREY, a childhood friend of Rodriguez-Lopez's. According to the label, the original title given to them by Omar was Calibration Is Pushing. Rodriguez-Lopez is far too mercurial for that to be the case. This one is almost equal parts loopy, knotty progressive and experimental rock and electronics. But the guitar is only one element that Omar uses on Calibration. Only for completionists 3. But it doesn't change situation too much - in fact this album sounds as chaotic and badly recorded and mixed collection of TMV outtakes and rehearsals. There are few small interesting musical moments, but generally material is very raw, songs are unfinished, placed on album in chaotic order, without minimal useable production.

Lyrics By Cedric Bixler-Zavala tracks: 4, 10, John Frusciante tracks: 6, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez trac. Is Pushing Luck is basically the same song but in more of a dub fashion. It's longer, spacier and you can actually hear Cedric sing: I came to warn you that I haven't got a clue. The rest of the album I can describe as: trippy, rockin', electronic, Latin, freaky, mellow. There are some violin parts here which aren't too bad. Some of the guitar riffs are really good and should have been worked on more.
