i thought there was already a review on this? either way, great review chris. i actually had no trouble getting into this album. it's genius. i love every second of it. definitely in my top albums of the year.
After seeing MUTEMATH live back in '06, I instantly fell in love with the first album when it came out. I picked up Armstice when it came out, and wasn't instantly sucked in. I sat it aside and picked it back up a week later, and it has grown on me more and more with each listen.
I always know when an album that doesn't hit will grow on me. It's when I listen to it, say I don't really like it, but it will still sneak its way back into my day here and there... This is that album for me.
