Ximena shouldn't have made her own lyrics to that song. She should have just slurred "Let me go!", like the original.

I just ordered this from someone on amazon for $19.95 including shipping. I didn't give anyone the heads up, because I had contemplated purchasing it myself for a few months now. Tonight was the night. Pretty good deal, I don't want this to go out of print without me snatching one, which is what happened with Calibration vinyl. This has been taken off the Stones Throw website for a while now, so they are getting rarer for retail price.

edit: just checked Stones Throw and the vinyl is now available again for $14.99 + shipping. Didn't check it before I ordered, oh well.

it's sounds to me more like cedric's than a woman's voice. but omar put so much effects on it, that it's hardly recognisable

Ok I just got the vinyl in the mail,

First of all what is with the liner notes? Why is there a hole in it?

And second this shit is tight, literally I can't even get the actual record off my platter. It kinda happened with my calibration vinyl also

I have had that slip underneath my platter ever since I got this record. It's like my own personal hidden treasure.

'Old Money' will fix American banks

Omar Rodríguez-López's music has been called world-changing and overblown. At the Drive-In, a band he played guitar for in the 1990s, is widely celebrated as one of brashest, best bands of the era, while The Mars Volta, a band he leads now, is more divisive, inciting either love or loathing; Omar's eight solo albums and their critical receptions fall somewhere in between. His newest, "Old Money", sounds like The Mars Volta, but it is better reined in. It grooves like his best, most valuable old stuff.

The songs on Rodríguez-López's albums generally follow a pattern: a bunch of effects, instruments and solos on top of a bass line that doesn't change. There are at least seven of those on this album, but unlike in live performances, the music is tightly wound and focused. The first three songs each have one bass line and a different drummer. Jazz-fusion drummer Deantoni Parks swings and spikes with the style and precision of a suede nailgun over the heavy wave of "The Power of Myth". Mars Volta singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala plays an ambling, dub-infused beat on the equal parts Caribbean and Middle-Eastern "How to Bill the Bilderberg Group", and former Mars Volta drummer John Theodore just beats up all over the steam-powered chug of "Population Council's Wet Dream".

Theodore's playing on "Family War Funding (Love those Rothschilds)" is forcible and impressive (listen to the patterns on the hi-hats) without being gaudy. On beautiful album closer "Old Money", he shows more of that reserve playing with Juan Alderete's bass under meandering guitars and synths.

Theodore never overpowers anyone else, unlike Rodríguez-López and his harsh guitar on "Private Fortunes" and "Trilateral Commission as Dinner Guests". On "Old Money", though, Omar shows a welcome musical restraint. There aren't that many solos and when they're there they aren't endless. Omar is an excellent sound-melder and songwriter.

On "1921", he combines recordings of Jerusalem streets with TV static. His best stuff comes in the style of his birthplace: Puerto Rican salsa.

The track "Old Money" is spacey and effected, but it's underbraced by the up-beat syncopation of Latin music. The distorted guitar in the short verses of "I Like the Rockefeller's First Two Albums Better, But After That…" plays like it's a salsa piano. The synths that sound like horns as well as the dirty bass make the song a standout.

Omar Rodríguez-López is known for disregarding critics and opinions beside his own in his stern commitment to doing whatever the hell he wants, and "Old Money" is more of that same "whatever the hell he wants." But, like a favorite food when it's cooked right, there's nothing better.

4.5/5.0

After becoming so accustomed to the amount of music Omar puts out, I had to take a second to let the (#011) in the title sink in. This album came out at the end of 08, and since then that mother fucker has released 14 more albums. I just gotta take this time to say...


Omar, you fucking rule, you insane mastermind genius psychopath god.

Does anyone know how many copies they made of this on vinyl?
Were they limited or do they just press them upon request?

This thread and album needs more lovin! This record is one of the greats no doubt about it.

Now that Volta is done (at least that's what we're lead to believe)..im starting to feel nostalgic with the band. And God i remember the excitement when this album was dropping. The secret Volta album that had people going crazy. A lot of the jams that people loved from their 2003, 2005, 2008 tours made it onto this album, it was some dope shit to witness.

An album with Deantoni and Jon on the same record? That's pretty intense. Not to mention Marcel and Cedric as well.

This record mixes Psychedelia, Salsa vibes, jazzy-rock, great melodies & madness, dub, film samples, classic Omar guitar wankery, great bass-lines, funky riffs & middle-eastern sounds like no other.

Add to the fact that it was released on StonesThrow Records (home of the mighty Madlib). It was an extra special Omar release.

Im very appreciative of this album to say the least. I thank the guys for putting out such gems like Cryptomnesia, Xenophanes and Un Escorpion Perfumado. But this album was the first to make me pay attention to his solo joints. I went back and heard some songs from his Amsterdam Series that i enjoyed and even though i didnt think they were on par with Old Money, it opened my mind to the future of Omars solo albums. And it actually made me more obsessed with TMV because i felt like i was a part of cult like community more than ever.

So im celebrating Volta right now by listening to this dope record. Hope u guys dont ignore this one too much cuz it's certainly one of his standouts!

it's definitely one of my all time favs. i have a pretty clearly marked line of favs, which goes something like this:

manual dexterity - s/t - apocalypse - old money - crypto - xeno - solar gambling - escorpion - unicorn
