COLLABORATOR Jazz-Rock/Fusion/Canterbury Team
4 stars 3.5 stars really, but ill round it up for sheer musicianship and astoundability!

Another great unknown band. This band seemingly came out of nowhere...and quite awhile ago too. First off i must say, this is a great debut album. There are many moments on here that sound like they are being made from a band that has been together for twenty years. Its just that tight, together, and complex. All of the musicians are fantastic, and its a shame some of them aren't household names (and i find it surprising i'm saying that after only the debut!). I would like to take to the time to say that i disagree with the sub-genre placement of this band. It might be the wrong place to address this concern, but i feel that if someone is looking for a hardcore RIO/Avant album, this is not for them. Likewise, people who don't like those styles, might like this album. I personally feel its mostly symphonic prog, although it does have moments of Avant-ness. Anyway, enough of that and on to the music.

Highlights: Be Together: What an awesome song! I fell in love with it from listen one. The complexity, the lyrics, the vocals...all perfect! The crescendo at the end of the song is maddening and brillant, IMO. A great example of prog. Dancing With Your Pants Down: More of a highlight for its vocal complexity then anything eles, although there is solid playing, especially from the rythem departement. Great stuff. TV Paid Off: More vocal insanity, though nothing compared to the other two i've mentioned. Again, solid lyrics, and musicanship are in tow for this song as well. The other highlights are: Your Disease Is Nicer, Heavenly Scared So, and Cells Out. Unfortunatly the biggest downfall for this album is that after awhile, it begins to sound like you've heard it before. Diverse is not how I would describe this album. And being that, theres not much i can say for the other highlights, that wouldn't be repetitive. Even still, the musicianship and complexity of this album hold it together enough for a 3.5 star rating.

All in all, this is a great debut from a very promising band. I can't wait to hear what eles these guys have in store. For fans of complex, fast, and hard prog (at many times they remind me of Gentle Giant, just much harder and less medieval). Recommended.

4 stars Inventive, colorful and unique are the words I would use describing Bubblemath's musical attitude, and although they never acclaimed more than a cult following ever since the release of their wonderfully eclectic and somewhat misunderstood debut album "Such Fine Particles of the Universe" I can definitely see a bright future for them. The music bursts with energy, originality and virtuosity proved by intericate and playful compositions who all have an experimental edge similar to Avant-Prog legends such as Mr. Bungle and Frank Zappa, who also are among Bubblemath's strongest influences it seems. It's a very cohesive and intense album with hundreds of ideas melted down to 12 very different songs but keeps the band's unique sound throughout all of them. I still have to agree with fellow reviewer Man With Hat that the album looses some focus and kind of repeat it's formula near the end which also keeps me away from giving this album a perfect rating. However, the album still is very high quality all the time.

The best and most representative track here have to be "Be Together", which also is a fan favorite and with good reason. This track is one of the best examples of modern prog you can hear, blending beauty and complexity perfectly. It does sound like a crossover between Gentle Giant and early Dream Theater and have become a personal favorite of mine recently. Other highlights include "Micreant Citizen", "TV Paid Off" and "Potential People", all being strong standouts here. Especially recommended to fans of eclectic and energetic modern prog in the vein of Mike Keneally, Dream Theater and Mr. Bungle. 4.5/5

4 stars Going onto Bubblemath's MySpace, I noticed that this album came out in 2002. All I can say is... Why wasn't I informed?!! This quintet truly has the mark of the Prog-Gods on them. Beginning with the quick yet somehow smooth Miscreant Citizen, I was reminded of Mr Bungle. Some of the others f ... (read more)

3 stars Bubblemath are described as something like avantprog-pop jazzcore. This band could probably fit in the line of new-wave avantrock bands like Mars Volta or Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, although Bubblemath is far from as interesting as those two. Easy listening pop-melodies are not what you want t ... (read more)
