iTunes Review

A tension of opposites runs through MuteMath’s third album, Odd Soul. Serene vocals float above churning grooves while spiky guitar riffs stab at candyfloss melodies. The album’s musical complexity is reflected in multilayered lyrics, many of which touch on the band’s Christian roots. In the process, MuteMath achieves an unlikely fusion of ‘70s funk, ‘80s new wave, and classic prog-rock that propels its sound into challenging experimental territory. Drummer Darren King plays a particularly crucial role here, laying down ferocious, cymbal-bashing percussion on “Quarantine,” “Allies,” and similar tunes. Paul Meany’s lead vocals weave around the quivering keyboards and molten bass, rising to an effortless falsetto that conveys hipster cool with a hint of prophetic vision. The jittery boogie beat of “Blood Pressure” helps deliver a message against narrow-minded believers. Odd Soul ends with the luminous “In No Time,” a quietly passionate reaffirmation of faith that reconciles the jarring elements in this intoxicating album.

Customer Reviews

ODD SOUL ROCKS!

Let me first say that MUTEMATH's previous albums are all incredible. With the new "ODD SOUL" album I am blown away by the complexities of the lyrics and music - and how well crafted they build their songs.

If you haven't seen them LIVE, I would suggest you do so before you die.

Plus, these guys stick around after the shows to meet the fans and hang out (Athens,GA - 40 Watt - 2011). I really love what they've done and continue to do with music, who knows how far these guys will go!

Honest Christians / Amazing Musical Evolution

First and foremost, I feel for these guys as a Christian. The "Christian Music" genre represents everything that I believe Paul and the guys are trying to to get away from. The lyrics from the last few albums have conveyed "pressure" and feeling "odd" about belonging to a group of people they have a hard time relating to. I think they are progressing as myself, and many of my Christian friends have. Everyone grows up in "the Church" before they can see through the dishonesty of people who pretend they are "through with sin." In the end, I think MuteMath is making honest music. Look past what Christian music is supposed to look like.

Finally, what a great album! Paul's lyrics, Darren and Roy's beats... This is definitely different from their other albums. Good!!! I love listening to their old stuff, and I can do it whenever I want. I love listening to their new stuff. They've always been about doing something different.

Odd Soul

This album is too "bluesy"/"folky" for me. I like the old, energetic, techno MuteMath
