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.

Mute Math Is Playing It Safe

I loved Mute Math's first album. Diverse, eclectic, but still accessible, it was a much needed breathe of fresh air in the Christian Alt. scene. Their second album seemed to stray from the roots of the first, but I just shrugged it off, attributing it to the "Sophomore CD" syndrome. Now, I feel they are retreating from the boldness they demonstrated with their first album altogether, and it's quite disappointing. Roy's still killing it, and Paul's vocals are great, but this doesn't feel like a progression, it feels like retreating into something safe, something already done by someone else. I want the Mute Math that experimented with weird sounds! There's nothing here to really grab on to and roll around in my brain. As well as the songs are constructed, they could have done way better. Let's hope there next effort is edgier and more energetic, because if it's not, they'll lose their relevance quick.


kickass drummer, and some funky rythyms, but a bore. didn't like the lyrics much either, very base and unispired singer.

Odd soul!!

Great job boys you've done it again!

Taking cues from several decades of alternative rock, MUTEMATH (also known as Mute Math and MuteMath) fuse together New Order's synth-dance epics, the Stone Roses' shambling shuffle, Radiohead's chilliness, Air's ambient pop, and the booming vocals of mainstream pop/rock. Singer Paul Meany, formerly of the Christian rock group Earthsuit, was working in New Orleans when he began a long-distance musical correspondence with drummer/programmer Darren King, who was based in Springfield, Missouri.
