It takes a lot for me to describe a band as purely "talented." Even if all the vocals suddenly disappeared from MuteMath's album, they would still be one of the best bands I've ever encountered.

It wasn't until I saw MuteMath live that I realized they were more than just a mere "good" band. Many artists nowadays use recording tactics in which they can't perform on stage. MuteMath has obviously proved this theory wrong, with actually adding in more rhythms and beats than on the original album recording.

MuteMath's first full-length self-titled album offers more than just simple tunes. The first song on the album, "Collapse," is an infectious non-vocal drum rhythm, followed by the second track, "Typical," as a high-energy rock melody.

With the sounds of Jimmy Eat World, The Killers and M83, the band's sporadic and unplanned beats create an amazing piece of art. MuteMath has a sound to satisfy Lovedrug, Anberlin, or Copeland fans.

Instrumental tunes "Obsolete" and "After We Have Left Our Homes" features a unique synthesizer sound like no other, whereas "Chaos," the band's chosen single, wraps around drum and guitar solos.

MuteMath's last two EP releases have instated the band on a national level in addition to their non-traditional ways of reaching fans. Their first album, now dubbed "limited edition" was actually only available on tour--in no means was it in stores or online. That, my friend, is well-deserved creativity with a touch of originality. After the tour, the album was later distributed on a more traditional route.

Longer songs and more intricate sounds are apparent when watching live--the fact that a person watches all the magic come together is why it's so intriguing.

Mute Math have been labelled the New Big Thing, which is a pretty hefty label to carry. Somebody's going to be disappointed, and most bands aren't strong enough to carry the title.

But this solid self-titled debut just might rise above the average, with its solid rockers and knack for good harmonies. This fledgling band expands up the solid guitar pop with extra flourishes and solid melodies -- it's not the most mind-blowing, but it's a solid sound all around.

It kicks off with "Chaos," an infectious little song that is simply crammed with instrumental goodness -- sharp drums, swirling guitars and airy electronica. It's perhaps their catchiest song on here, and good way to get you into their music -- it's a more complex tune than it appears to be at first glance.

It's followed up by a colourful array of different sounds -- this music is almost paradoxical in its complex simplicity and solid subtlety. They dabble in various styles, including epic guitar pop, brief instrumentals, haunting electronica-edged pop, and even some colourful funky-edged pop. They wind down with "Stall Out," a softer song that quietly wraps the album up with an electropop edge.

Mute Math started impressing people with their "Reset EP," and as they gained a following, they started handing out their debut on concerts. You gotta love these boys for that alone. But the cycling complexity of their pop music is an extra reason to enjoy what they turn out on their debut.

At first listen, it sounds a lot like Mute Math is a pretty typical indiepop band. Listen more closely, and hidden rhythms and shimmers of sound will start to emerge under the hooks.

I just got this cd and it is amazing. A few of the songs are on the RESET EP (Plan B, Control, Reset). These songs appear to be exactly the same, except maybe remastered. I listened to them in a side-by-side comparison and noticed that the songs from the RESET EP sound much better. The ones on the new album sound compressed a bit more, have less in the lower end and are higher in the midrange.

Has anyone else noticed any difference?

First off, I've had this CD for a long time. The only reason I'm reviewing it now is because I've read the 2 and 3 star reviews and those people don't know what they are talking about. So here we go.

This CD is probably one of the greatest out there (besides Amnesiac or In Rainbows by Radiohead). This band has a fresh sound to them that the music industry has greatly needed for long time.

It starts off with Collapse, an instrumental with Darren King (drummer) going crazy on the snare, accompanied by Paul Meany's (singer, keyboards) backround vocals. Then it goes into Typical (the song they're most known for), with Greg Hill (guitarist) starting it off and then Darren King coming in with a very experimental drum beat, and Roy Mitchell (bassist) with some sweet basslines and Paul Meany's Synths flying around everywhere. People say that "after a good number of listens, 'Typical' becomes typical". Well, I've probably listened to this song over 100 times and it still hasn't gotten old. After Typical comes another instrumental, After We Have Left Our Homes. Then comes Chaos. People have called this song embarassingly poppy. This song is not poppy at all. It is actually one of their most complex and dark songs on the CD. But you have to really listen to realize it. Roy shines in this song with Darren on offbeat drums and heavy effects on the guitars. Then there's Noticed, which people have said is just a major filler. I'll tell you this now: MUTEMATH DOES NOT HAVE FILLERS. This song is very upbeat and quick and it makes you feel good. After that comes Plan B, a song mostly based on the drums and keyboards with some sweet guitar riffs and bass harmonics. The only thing I'm going to say about Stare At The Sun and Obsolete is that they are amazing.
