Editorial Reviews

Anointed by Alternative Press as 'the #1 band you need to see live before you die,' eclectic and inspired electro-alt MUTEMATH scored in late 2008 with 'Spotlight' (#1 Billboard Hot Singles Sales for two weeks) on the soundtrack album to Twilight. The track now also appears on the group's second album, Armistice. Produced by Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello, The Hives), Armistice melds moments of beauty with big hooks and booming vocals. Challenging the limitations of alt-rock, MUTEMATH has rightly earned a reputation as one of modern music's most daring young groups.

4.0 out of 5 stars What the Funk? September 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Sophomore albums are like sequels to great movies. At first you get excited about the prospect of seeing all your favorite beloved characters again. Then you become apprehensive. A thought pops into your head. "The Empire is striking back? Sweet!" Then another. "There's going to be a female Terminator?! Ah, crap!"
Mutemath's latest CD had me saying both. Their first, self-titled, album was nearly flawless. It has yet to leave my CD player. And when it does, it'll be a cold day in hell. So as I frolicked out of Hoodlum's with the CD in my hands, I thought to myself, "Wait... what if they can't do any better than that first album?"
So I set the mood for a fresh listen. I waiting until the evening, rolled the windows of my car down, lit some candles, poured a glass of wine, put on some smooth jazz (then took it off realizing how difficult it would be to hear two CDs at once), and slid Armistice by Mutemath into the CD player.
I was ready to rock. That was my first problem. I was initially let down. This was not the Mutemath I had fallen in love with. There were no catchy riffs, no loud, impassioned vocals, and no instrumental experiments.
But one day, upon my fourth or fifth listen with Armistice in the background, I got it. In a musical epiphany, I realized just how much soul these boys from New Orleans have. You can't rock to this album. You have to get down to it. That can be done with a little less head movement and a little more pelvis.
I realized that Mutemath was able to accomplish one thing twice. They were able to create a fresh album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Sophomore Effort August 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the most quietly anticipated albums this year I think. And it pays off well. Armistice begins with "The Nerve," a fun, heavy rock song with a chorus of "Set it in fire!" Sure to be a winner at live shows. It's a perfect way to start off the album: with a song that sounds like you're having fun recording it. The next song, "Backfire," is slightly by the books but is saved by Darren King's incredible drumming and Greg Hill's sparse guitar riffs. The third song, "Clipping," may be my favorite song on the entire album. It's a perfect blend of everything MuteMath does well. Rhythmic-drumming, incredible singing, pulsing bass, beautiful pieces layered on top. The next two songs worth mentioning are "No Response" and "Pins and Needles." "No Response" is a slow-rhythm pop song with toasty-warm vocals and hip-hop drums. There's a particularly wonderful part towards the middle of the song: after the first chorus, the organs cut out to reveal a softly-played piano part subtly-tweaked with what sounds like a pitch-shifter. "Pins and Needles" begins sounding like a real subtle salute to dubstep before Paul cuts the pitter-patter drums with beautiful vocals. Piano joins the arrangement during the chorus and the song almost takes a turn for In Rainbows-era Radiohead with incredible drumbeats and a hauntingly beautiful string arrangement at the end. "Goodbye" may be the biggest misstep on the album. It's a little much with its blend of Coldplay piano and almost-Middle Eastern string part towards the end. But it's still enjoyable, which is a big part of why this album works. Then comes the biggest save of the album. "Odds." I found myself trying to find the beat my first few times through. I absolutely love the rhythm in this song. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Every now and then August 19, 2009
By Brent
Format:Audio CD
Every now and then a band will come along that brings a fresh outlook on the musical spectrum. Mutemath is one of those bands. In 2006 their self titled album hit the mass media with a quick one two. Three years later they come back with Armistice and knock everyone out. I can honestly say that there is nothing out there that sounds so original. Mutemath does a tremendous job of getting your attention with their opening track The Nerve. They continue to pull you through an technicolor ride. The closing track Architecture leaves one with a wonderful after taste in your mouth. All in all this might be the best CD to come out in 2009. Everyone should give this album a spin just to hear a unique product that doesn't disappoint.

2.0 out of 5 stars Come on, Mutemath!!!!! January 9, 2010
By CL
Format:Audio CD
The singer used to lead a band called Earthsuit, but he stopped that because the style was too cryptic for what he was trying to express and very few people understood it. So when Mutemath came around, it was such a clear presentation of real issues that you couldn't misunderstand ("How long should it take somebody before they can be someone?" Typical)

I loved Mutemath's first CD because the combination of style and content was so personal and I could relate personally to every song. I expected a second CD to be a more refined expression of serious issues in a stylish, catching way, but I found that they let their presentation determine their content. I respect musicians who choose the appropriate style to express something personal, but it seems as if they let their unique style start wearing the pants. There are a few songs I perceive to be sincere: "The Nerve", "Pins and Needles", and "Goodbye".

If you like their style and don't care about the content, this is a great, unique CD. But I care about the content, too, and I don't like it.

If you already have a digital or a CD copy of Armistice, the vinyl is the perfect addition to your collection.

Mutemath is a great band that I learned about through the movie "Twilight". I have several of their CDs. The music is fast-paced and upbeat.
