5.0 out of 5 stars Whole 11 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a great addition to the Static racket collection.
Perhaps more heavily veering towards the electonica side of their sound, but full of the twists and turns, sudden swerves and change in sonic tonic dynamic which are part of the 65 days.
The opening Hole is a great example of what they do best- creating a sense of mystery with sounds drifting in and out which are often impossible to identify- is that underwater? someone drowning? a whale's song? Unnerving and enervating.
A fab remix of "The fall of math" and a reworking of the twitchy "retreat, retreat"- the mothboy remix- which sounds as though it could be the inner workings of a moth or a butterfly- the guys keep you guessing.
Packaged in an oddly shaped sleeve, in a weird shade of yellow/orange pale with an image on the cover that looks hideously like an electric chair- great, unsettling stuff.
I found this on the rack at the back of the nick knack section- a worthy extra to my post-rock eclectic select-ion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovingly Deconstructed or Reconstructed? 26 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD
Why oh why didn't I buy this sooner? The Fall of Math is a truly great album and this EP is the perfect addition to it. A real treat of glitch electronics, drum 'n' bass and general weirdness, all spinning around some of the greatest rock(?) instrumental music out there. You can listen to this all the way through like a mini-album and ride the multitude of styles. So often a remix album completely loses the essence of the original but not here, it transforms it, moving it forward to the 22nd century. BTW it will give your hi-fi a real workout, it sounds gorgeous.

I've seen them live a few times and you get a hint of this marvellous electronica but just a hint, I wish they would go the whole hog and release some albums of it. They've gone as far as they can go with their previous albums.

There are too many 5* reviews out there but having had this for a couple of years now and being blown away by it every time I come back to it, it has to be a 5, if only it was longer....

5.0 out of 5 stars Wholly Satisfying 15 Nov 2005
By R. Lister - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
ack. sorry for the bad gag.

Of all the bands I've previously tipped for greatness, 65 Days of Static least deserve the total obscurity and failure that usually goes with that recommendation.

Really, 65DOS are a product of an equation that seems blindingly obvious in retrospect: the pomp and power of Mogwai + Warp-style beat/bleep craziness. It's *so* great to hear an energetic and imaginative approach to music like this and it works so well, to spectacular effect on this single. I absolutely freaking defy you to play this at loud volume and not find the hairs on your neck rising. I usually find myself flailing uncontrollably around the living room, destroying any breakable items within reach, but that's me.

Beg borrow or steal "Fall of Math", their debut from the UK. Good luck guys - I really hope you make it to continuous rotation on MTV2.
5.0 out of 5 stars This Band Deserves Sigur Ros-like praise! 16 Feb 2006
By Asuka Langley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Truly one of the most exciting things to happen to music in the last 15 years, 65daysofstatic is criminally unknown. This group deserves to be revered for it's utterly astounding series of consistantly challenging and awesome tracks. "Hole" stands as one of the best songs of the 21st century and this album in general is GOLD!!! Please people, pay heed and purchase this album.
