I get the points made that it's a bit more lethargic than what they're normally known for. Personally, I call it more "moody". I really like it. I've listened to the album continuously for a few days now and it's just as good as when I started. It's all cohesive yet doesn't go stale at any point for me. Being a creative professional, I spend long hours on the computer developing - it's a great companion album for that. If you're into Glitch Mob and you don't NEED to bust out glow sticks every time you play the record, it's a good buy I think.

The Glitch Mob, formed in 2006, is a Los Angeles-based electronic music trio known for powerful live performances using MIDI controllers and laptops. Made up of Justin Boreta, Josh Mayer, and Ed Ma, The Glitch Mob has gained a following on the West Coast and has been a notable performer at various music festivals across the globe. After putting out a series of mixtapes and remixes in the past few years, The Glitch Mob released their first full-length album, titled "Drink the Sea", in 2010. This album proves to be a slight deviation from the sound that The Glitch Mob has become known for, but listening is an endearing and intense experience nonetheless.

The tracks on "Drink the Sea" are characterized by a moderately slow tempo that, for most of the songs, is not quite quick enough to dance to, but does tend to move along. As a whole, the album is full of dense bass-lines, heavy drum hits, and riveting breakdowns. The Glitch Mob is able to produce thick soundscapes punctuated by driving drumbeats. The sum total of this is a quality album with solid replay value. The best way to listen to this is while driving or reading, as it is upbeat enough to keep you energized but the overall lack of vocals lends itself to becoming background music.

"Drink the Sea" begins with "Animus Vox", a memorable and drum-heavy track loaded with intriguing synth melodies. The album then moves on to "Bad Wings", which features a more relaxed style than the first track with similarly notable melodies. The next song is "How to be Eaten by a Woman" which, as with many songs on this album, sounds nearly identical to "Animus Vox". Other songs of note include "Between Two Points", "Drive it like you Stole it", and "Fortune Days".

I have to admit, at first I was thrown off by their new sound. But after listening to it a couple of times it grew on me. Drink the Sea is now on one of my top ten albums of all time. The music can set you off in a dreamy bliss or make you bob your head to it's catchy synth riffs and boomin' drumlines. I've always been a fan of their "Crush Mode" era material but this has made me a bigger fan. Hopefully they would come out with an EP that is a hybrid of their old and new sound. If you're a fan of electronic music in general get this album.

I never heard of this band until one day I was flipping TV channels and stumbled across a music video by them. It was a very chance encounter, as I don't watch music video television. I'm usually of the Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms mindset, so it is very rare I find anything new to like.

Found it.

I just discovered this. Here's how I understand it. There guys took their glitch edm tools and set out to make one killer transcendent album. Its kind of retro sounding, a tiny bit dubsteppy. but its got its own sound. I'm not sure why it works so well. Is it the understated production that doesn't BLOW YOU AWAY IMMEDIATELY like so much electronic music? Was this intentional? An accident? I really don't know, but the whole thing works. Its loose, an electro jam. Got some world music flavor buried in there somewhere and some garage rock sensibility.

I don't like the next album at all. I think this was a one time deal. You can only make one album like this and you need a whole new set of sounds. Instead these guys went more mainstream or something. They need to make another album like this with a new palette of sounds or adding vocals in creative ways. They should stay in the experimental/ epic-y zone where this one iz Sucks when you gotta pay bills and chase success .I don't know if they'll ever follow this up, but this is good. Its one of the few electronic music experiences that feels natural and breathes and is organic and expansive--like some of the orb's best stuff. So often electronic music is claustrophobic and artificial

As of now there is only a single 2 star review, did the other reviewers get shamed out of their rating?

I found these guys through YouTube adventures, and I have never been more pleased with the suggestion. Usually YouTube couldn't be more wrong with what it thinks I would like. While I can be picky with what I like, this album has my respect entirely. The sound is mixed so intelligently and as previously rated by someone else, it never gets stale. Each song is new and different... to me, anyway.

I've listened to this so much, my brother knows it's Glitch Mob when I'm humming to myself. The smooth rhythms make this good music to listen to when I'm working and thinking because it's nonabrasive while still interesting so not to put me to sleep. After a month or so, I'm surprised to realize that most of these songs don't have vocals or lyrics. The songs are so interesting they don't need vocals! Nonetheless, "Between Two Points" is so sexy and was sort of my favorite at first. Now it's hard to say because I like all the songs. Currently I'm favoring "Drive It Like You Stole It".

I'm more of a fan of Darkwave or Industrial music among other various and random things but don't like my food mixing. On the other hand, this album transcends genres entirely creating a vibe that's both primal and futuristic. When listening, I can't help but think I'm in some new plain of existence entirely, creating new worlds. This is good music. I've definitely become a huge fan.
