Fire Note Says: Not exactly what we expected.
After the success of Typical , there was much hype built up for this release and unfortunately it comes off very uneven and tries too hard to be cool. Mutemath venture more into an experimental side here with blips and beats surrounding their repetitive alternative rock throughout the entire record but fail to recreate the bands live energy. What drives Armistice is its undertone for dance rock. Each track has a bounce to it that is made for mainstream radio, which may be great for the band but won't directly appeal to their fanbase. What is a positive noticeable difference is that the songwriting seems tighter and the production is slick. This compliments the direction Mutemath has went on Armistice, although I am not immediately enthralled by the final product their are glimmers of the band I was expecting to hear. At the end the day, this record could grow on me a bit with repeat listens and honestly maybe this is the record Mutemath needed to make now as their potential for that "great" album still exists!
