This is an album that i have been listening to lately, i know in some reviews i have said the same thing, but actually when i listen to simething several times and i get it deeper, i feel the need of review the album, not always, but i usually do that. Now it`s time of this "new" band dedicated to create heavy emotions in ourselves, i wont speak for all, but im sure im not the only one who think that. The Fall of Math is an album which since the first song make notice the grand orientation to electronic things, im not saying that the whole album has only that stuff, not at all, it would be completely horrible, but those electronic sounds, mixed with their superb drum playing and their heavy guitar sounds, makes it so powerful and emotional.

Let me tell you that as well as the majority of the Post Rock bands and albums, this is an instrrmental album, actually you can hear some voices somewhere, but only talking, not singing, this is not the melancholic and sad style of Sigur Ros or A Silver Mt. Zion, but also dont go to the other side with bands like Pelican or Isis which are heavier and follow the same standars in their music.

The Fall of Math has great songs, and within them, great changes, for example the second song starts with those electronic elements, and a beautiful sound of piano, which little by little is progressing, guitars incorporate and drums make a great song, but my personal favorite song here is "Retreat! Retreat!", excellent song full of emotion it could make me cry someday, again it starts with a softer sound, but suddenly after a few voice`s words it becomes heavier, but believe me the drum playing is absolutely brilliant, if i have to choose my favorite instrument in this album, i would choose drums, but guitars are also essential, and why not, the sound of keyboard in some of the songs is also excellent.

"I swallowed heart, like i understood" is in my opinion the best song of the album, not my favorite, but is excellent, piano work is repetitive but great, electronic sound, and those heavy guitars makes it better, im not fan of metal or heavy things, but this is so enjoyable to me, i can listen to it so many times and nothign bothers me. "Hole" is the other song that i adore , not so different, the same usual things, but again an excellent sound.

Not many weak points, the self titled song is not so good, i think is an abuse of electronic sound Fix the Sky a Little simply has not clicked with me yet, maybe one day, those 2 songs are the weakest here, but as a whole i think is an excellent album, if you like the heavy side of Post Rock, then you should try this thing, and also you better listen to it with good headphones and find those "hidden2 sounds... 4 stars for me!
