Mutemath – ‘Vitals’ album review

Mutemath, CCM Magazine - imageIt’s not like they needed to make a more heavily electronic-infused album to “play along” with a host of emerging 80s-like synth-pop bands and established acts influenced by the same upgraded retrospective, as Mutemath has long been lauded for merging cutting edge musical precision while nodding to classic style. With Vitals, it seems like they’re just playing with us (we imagined a few Paul Meany mic-drops during these recording sessions). The band that calls New Orleans home seems to have perfected their unique blend of keytar and synth-bass in your-faceness, slapping you there like that pot of jambalaya from Mardi Gras ‘89. Meaney’s melody lines are traditional Mutemath, however we enjoy hearing him stretch a little further this time around, especially on the disco’esque “Best Of Intentions.”
