  • Summary: Dennis Herring produced the second album for the rock band who had its song "Spotlight" featured on the "Twilight" soundtrack.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 4
  2. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. The album doesn't stary too far from what made MUTEMATH such an enjoyable listen, but it's nuances cement Armistice as the band's best work to date. [Sep 2009, p.99]
  2. Enjoying Mute Math involves disavowing the bad, and disliking them likewise involves disavowing the good. That this choice is offered at all keeps the band firmly in the camp of the interesting, at least.
  3. This is essentially a thinking man's album, though, more indicative of the band's breadth than its ability to make hit singles.
  4. The result is an awkward balancing act between a premature lust for accessibility and an obvious knack for the avant-garde, shirking traces of the latter in an ill-fated attempt at evolution.

    MuteMath is a band of progress. Armistice marks a time of vitality and boldness in a group of artists so vastly talented in an incredibly wide range of styles, settling with nothing less than their own idea of perfection. This album inspires me in a way no other album has; MuteMath at their finest. Expand

    Mutemath is just one of those bands where you need to give their music time. they're also a band that you either love or hate. what Mutemath do best is experimentation, and they've developed their sound beyond the simple, catchy alternative songs of their self-titled album into a strong blues-influenced hard rock sound with electronic meshing. give them time to warm up to you and you'll be spinning their records every chance you get.
