Album Of The Day: At The Drive-In – Relationship Of Command

Before Omar Rodriguez and Cedric Bixler gave us The Mars Volta and several solo projects they were in a band that was often hailed as the saviours of rock music when this album arrived on the scene mid 2000. The third and last release by the band finally got them the recognition and success they deserved but sadly it also proved the to be the end of the band, with Omar and Cedric moving on and forming Mars Volta and Jim Ward (guitarist) and Tony Hajjar (drums) creating Sparta.

Obviously it contains One Armed Scissor, which is an amazing song but I am going to overlook it and give one of the other singles that was released a chance. So the best song is the slower ‘Invalid Litter Dept.’ which has a great video as well.

The full album can be found on Spotify here
