Every now and then a band explodes from the grassroots. Thanks to phenomenal Internet exposure that led to soldout shows across the country, Mute Math is just such a story. Playing this summer at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and on the Warped Tour has resulted in the group's major-label debut with a self titled album. An inspired Alt-Rock band from New Orleans, Mute Math melds hip-hop styled beats, moments of beauty and grandeur, big hooks, and vocals that pay homage to classic rock.
Top Customer Reviews
I didn't know it at the time this cd was given to me, but over time, Mutemath have become one of my most favorite bands of all, and while I love all their cds, this one is still probably my favorite.
Mutemath may fall into a rock, and even a christian category, but I don't care for either, and still love this band. Mutemath (to me) have a jazzy, spacey, dreamy aspect, and lead singer Paul Meaney's voice is such an instrument of feeling, emotion and compassion. Song subject is DEEP, and songs such as "We All Break The Same", and "You Are Mine", almost make me weep everytime I head them, because almost all of Mutemath's songs affect me profoundly and personally.
The other aspect of music that I like must conform to is musicianship, and all these guys are great players. I've seen them live, and although these guys aren't going to go off into some extended jazz solo jams, they do flesh their songs out live, to give the live audience something more than an exact reproduction of their cds, and as said before, these guys CAN play. All of Mutemath's cds are worthy of owning, and this is as good a place to start as any.
There is a lot of digital enhancement in their music, so if you aren't into it, don't buy the Cd. But if you are into, Indie, Alternative and or Techno, THEN GIVE IT A GO!
While I'd love to pick out a song that stands out, there really isn't one. Every track on this debut record plays a part in the movement of the entire package.
If there's one drawback to the album, it's this: there's no way to listen to just one song from somewhere in the middle. You can't listen to it on random (well, I can't at least). It's almost as though the band wrote one long song and divided it into fourteen tracks.
Bottom line: this album is a must for your ears.
I love this album!!! It arrived in excellent condition and promptly as promised.
