All that being said, this record is very good.
"aarontsl"
Very small, "insecty", gentle beats with some traditional instruments added for some tracks.

And I was moved by this very beautifull, touching music.

There is a lot of music out there that is really good. Unfortunately, it is surrounded by all sorts of filler. Like anyone that heads out in to the hills with a tin pan and a dream, I have spent a ridiculous amount of time searching for musical gold. This is one album that qualifies. It is the type of album that I will put on when I am in the mood for chilling out with a nice glass of scotch and a book. It is mostly instrumental, and takes a couple listens to get the feel for the flittering beauty it lays out. A lot of people have compared this band to Sigur Ros but, other than being from Iceland, it is not a fair comparison. Having said that, if you are the type of person that likes Sigur Ros, you will probably like this album (don't expect it to sound like them, though).

I think the first thing that needs addressed in regards to Mum is that their constant association with Sigur Ros is a bit misleading. This group is often mentioned to fans of Sigur Ros as another band that they might like. But in all honesty, the only two things that these groups share is that they are both from Iceland and neither band is a mainstream "soundalike" of any other band.
Sigur Ros's sound is very warm (due to the heavy use of string instruments) and is very much characterized by it's vocalist. Jonsi is a very emotional and unique singer.
Mum, on the other hand, are an almost entirely instrumental techno group. Although they do play some of the most emotional electronic music that I have heard (no repetitive dance beats here), the digital nature of the sounds used to create the music gives it a distinctly cold feel and helps it to come across as less heartfelt and less emotionally powerful.
In short, this is a good cd. There is room for improvement but on the whole it is a very worthwhile album. Just don't expect Sigur Ros when you buy it. The two groups really don't have much in common.
Mum is more like a cross between the British techno group Hybrid and electronic new age relaxation music like ForrestFang. And they somehow manage to bring together the best elements of those styles.

From where i come from in Iceland people have been talking about how great ta band called Múm is for a very very long time. I never paid that much atention to it bescuase i had never heard anything from the band, all I knew was that hey had been a warmup band for the great band mogwai. Then when i heard that múm was going to play in my school I just HAD to see them, this great band that everybody had been talking about, the band that impressed mogwai so much that they wanted them to warm up for them, the band that are friends with Belle & Sebastian and with the twin systers that are on the cover of Belle & Sbeastian's "Fold your hands Child, You walk like a pesant" album. Then the day came, and the concert began. And I was moved by this very beautifull, touching music. There music is unbelivable. It's like nothing i've ever heard before. It's one of the greatest things I've ever heard and will ever hear. Right nerxt day after the concert i went out and bought the cd. And it was even better then the concert. Although seeing them play is the most beaustifull thing you can see, I almonst felt like crying becaude there music was so good. The tonly thing that I could think was "Oh my god! they are not humans they are gods". And every time i listen to this CD , wich is about 2 or 3 times every day or more often i experience it in a new way. This CD is the best CD i've ver bought. Not even Sigur Rós's Ágætis byrjun, Mogwai's Younge Team or Godspeed you black emperor!'s Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada EP are as good as this. So i give this CD 5 stars, although i want to give it 10 stars out af 5 because how good it is. Two thumbs up for Múm. I,m alldready excited about a new cd from them.

Review by: R_Garcia, Igloo Magazine ([...])

(10.09.05) I will begin this review with a paraphrase from the included one-sheet: "This album was recorded very shortly after me and Gunni met Kristin and Gyda and became a four people band... It was originally released on an Icelandic label called Thule but early on a number of disputes came up which ended up dragging on for many years... We have the rights for the record back now and are really happy to be re-releasing it on our friends label where it seems to fit in like home."

If not for that disclaimer, one might take this re-release as new compositions from Múm (which I accidentally did when I tossed the CD in my car's player without reading a word.) If this indeed was to be a new release for Múm, it would most certainly be a step back. The sound quality is not exactly on par with what a Múm fan might be used to, and the major-scale over clicky-click beats thing has been beaten to death by a zillion aspiring laptop rockers in countless indie and net-releases for the last five years.

But... this release was recorded in 1999, which if memory serves, was around the time that the clicky movement was first being born (that would place Múm at the vanguard, where they belong.) This disc also provides a candid look into the Múm toolbox; the clean, patient sounds, ethereal keyboards, live instrumentation and pulsing rhythms are all there in infancy, offering up a missing link in the evolutionary story of Múm.
