MYSTERY OF TWO: Self-titled: CD

Nov 22, 2009

Sometimes I listen to an album dozens of times and still don’t know what to write about it. I never hold that to be a good thing. It usually means nothing has caught my attention, which in turn means that there is nothing exceptionally good or exceptionally bad about the album. I think it’s safe to say that would apply to Mystery of Two’s self-titled album. There are ten songs coming in at thirty-eight minutes and they are kind of math rock meets post punk, but not in any excessive way. There are change-ups and some dynamics but the overall feel is definitely rock’n’roll, albeit with a weird vocal styling that kind of reminds me of the singer from Wilderness or PiL-era John Lydon. As I mentioned before, this is exceptionally middle of the road; it’s nothing to write home about, but at least it didn’t make me irate and hate music.
