Editorial Reviews

MUTE MATH's seven-track debut EP, RESET, is guaranteed to be one the most innovative new projects in music this year, fluidly combining elements as diverse as jazz, rock and electronica. Their cutting-edge, distinctive sound melds organic instruments (often pulled apart and reassembled in radical new configurations) with electronic elements ultimately creating a powerful artistic statement.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Reset" - A Promising Debut from MuteMath. January 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
MuteMath is one of the most original new bands to arrive upon the music scene in recent years. Formed from the ashes of the band Earthsuit, MuteMath displays a diverse range of styles fusing elements of rock, jazz, reggae, electronica and rave into a seamless whole. The band consists of former Earthsuit members Paul Meany on keyboards and vocals and Darren King on drums along with guitarist Greg Hill. Together, they have made a promising mark with their debut EP "Reset".

The disc opens with a high-energy uptempo number entitled "Control" which shows off an obvious U2 influence with its chiming guitars and anthemic choruses.

"Peculiar People" shifts into white-reggae gears and sounds like an outtake from the Police's "Regatta de Blanc". Paul Meany's vocals even have a slight Sting tinge to them. Lyrically, the song is based on Isaiah 40:31 which states 'they that wait upon the Lord shall..fly with wings as eagles'.

"OK" is an uplifting ballad in the style of Delirious. While the lyrics aren't exactly worship-oriented, they do offer a vast amount of comfort and hope and can be encouraging to those going through life's many trials.

The EP's title track is probably the most adventerous of all the ones on this disc. Being totally instrumental, this piece features elements of electronica and rave music and is centered around Darren King's syncopated and processed drumming alongside Paul Meany's atmospheric electric piano chords. All the while, there are various electronic sound effects scattered throughout the track along with samples of the string section heard on Delirious's "Glo In The Dark-part 4" from their "Glo" album. The overall sound of this track is a cross between Moby, Radiohead and The Chemical Brothers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound... June 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
They have a full legnth album available via their Myspace page. Also, if you get the chance, see this band live. They have put on one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen. I saw them at The Howlin' Wolf in New Orleans and... Just go see them.

1) Control - Happy flowing verses, driving chorus. 5/5

2) Peculiar People - Amazing vocals and keyboard work. 5/5

3) OK - This track kind of seems uneventful after Peculiar People. However, it reminds me of Radiohead. 4/5

4) Reset - Love at first note. 5/5

5) Plan B - Cool drum work, and tight sounding vocals. Also, my favorite guitar work (after Reset of course). 5/5

6) Progress - This is my least favorite track, but when they played it live and it really was moving. 4/5

7) Afterward - Just a keyboard outro. --

5.0 out of 5 stars If Sigur Ros made church music... October 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Call it the thinking man's worship music. Call it the worshipping man's thinking music. Call it groundbreaking, astounding, sensory overload. Call it rock and roll punctuated by deep spiritual longing and a dash of DJ Shadow. Whatever you call it, I love it. And I don't know if it's possible anyone could resist its brilliance. Since there's no way to aptly sum up this EP (it's not even a full album and it's still that good!), here's a play by play of each of the songs and what I think of them. Or what I could think to say about them that wouldn't destroy the ambience and mystery that make each song more rapturous and fascinating than the next.

I really hope you'll do yourself a favor and check out this CD. If you aren't convinced by my review, there are a number of online sources where you can listen to full length songs. And that oughtta do the trick.

CONTROL-Even though I've listened to this song so many times online, I still love it. From the opening chords to the thundrous, majestic chorus, my heart just surges with some powerful emotion that I can't even describe.

PECULIAR PEOPLE-What a catchy, upbeat little tune! I'm just waiting for the day when someone catches me dancing in the elevator because I have this song stuck in my head. I think this should be their next single, because it would do very well at radio.

OK-This song gives me chills. It stops me dead in my tracks. No matter what I'm doing, even if I've sort of tuned out the CD a background noise during a conversation or homework, when this song comes on I have to pay attention. I love the words and everything, but actually the musical backdrop is just as amazing. It just sets the tone for everything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible December 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
As I'm writing this, there are only 4 reviews for this CD. That is shocking to me! But not as surprising as this CD is. First of all, the songwriting is incredible, and the execution is more than memorable. If you have not listened to this on their website yet, then you should. Then I'm sure you will be compelled to buy this CD. The songs are catchy and the vocals are unique. Some bands have a sound and vocals that define them (I think of U2 for instance)and make their music memorable. I truly believe that Mute Math is one of those bands. If this ep is any indication of what their full-length is going to look like next year, then prepare to hear a lot more about this band.

Great CD! It is a must for those who love Mutemath. I was willing to pay the hefty price tag for so few songs, but I don't regret it on bit.
