5.0 out of 5 stars something to make your life better 29 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
There aren't many albums by many bands that you can look back on and think unequivocally that they have made you see music in a new light. That made you feel naive, like you've really discovered something that previously you couldn't comprehend might exist. I can think of maybe two albums like that. 65DOS are one of those bands and The Fall of Math is one of those albums, it will make your life a better place. The energy, the power, the emotion, the awesome song writing, the creativity, the artistry, honestly im getting goose bumps trying to write this stuff down. 65 days are a collision of post-rock with drum and bass schizophrenia, with a whole heap of euphoria thrown in on top just to properly overload you. These guys are geniuses. I challenge you to listen to retreat retreat! or Aren't we all running? without feeling the urge to spread your arms wide, throw your head back and laugh manically at the sky because its the only thing you can think of doing to cope with the euphoria of it all. Whether you like fiercely energetic guitars, skittering drums, banging drum n bass beats or beautiful swathes upon swathes of keyboards you will be moved to new levels by this band. If you're worried about the instrumental nature of it all, don't be, once you've heard this you'll realise that music really shouldn't have vocals.
Buy this album, rejoice, weep. It might actually be the best thing in the world.

Aphex Twin and Mogwai meet down an alley in Sheffield. There's a scuffle, someone gets glassed. This is the result...

5.0 out of 5 stars I rarely bother... 28 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
...writing reviews, but I have to say that this is without doubt one of those defining pieces of plastic, that has made me re-examine what I'm currently listening to. It ticks so many of the right boxes, snatches of Drum n Bass, electonica, post-rock and hardcore. i can't remember hearing a band and feeling like this since MBV in teh 90s. Brilliant - buy it, download it - it's a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Band Is Unstoppable 8 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
Got hold of this album a couple of months ago now, and I can't stop playing it! Prog/Post Rock is not usually the sort of music I listen to, but 65days' complex beats, awesome drumming and epic guitars have me hooked. "I swallowed hard..." is one of the greatest songs I have heard in a long time.
Cannot be recommended enough.
Check them live as well, amazing experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply awesome 2 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's only natural to compare new bands to older bands if you're unsure of how to pigeonhole them. If you like that kind of thing then read some of the other comments here, they won't steer you wrong. However, without succumbing to comparison and cliche I'll attempt to explain what 65 Days of Static.
65 Days of Static is the post rock band you always wanted to play guitar (or any other instrument for that matter) in. They have such a fresh and wildly different sound that every song and every show is different and exciting. Fusing elements of melodic post rock with splinters of computer-breaking-down blips and glitches, all laid over impenetrable drum n bass loops, this band have taken every influence and thrown it out the window. Kerrang have latched on to them as the "nu-metal" hope for 2005; The Wire sees them as the best UK post rock act; Drowned In Sound touts them as electronic geniuses.
65 Days of Static are all of these things and none of these things. If you like metal then they're a fresh sounding metal band. If you like post rock then they're an inventive post rock band. If you like electronic then they're a daring electronic band.
You just have to listen to it to believe it. It sounds corny but just take a risk and buy this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's A Blast 8 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you like Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky but get bored by the quiet bits, then 65 Days of Static could be the band for you.

At just under 45 minutes long `The Fall of Math' crackles with restless energy. The band put a dizzying array of music into the mix - breakneck drumming, keyboards, strings, electronic effects and most prominently guitars, for this is a post-rock album that truly rocks. In fact, whisper it if you dare, in places it is a bit nu-metal (sorry).

Spoken word samples are used sparsely but with great effect: `we will not retreat - this band is unstoppable!' introduces `Retreat! Retreat!' the album's best track and truly thrilling it is too.

Occasionally, the mix of styles is less than successful, for example the burst of Squarepusher-style electronica in `Default This' jars somewhat and towards the end of the CD compositional acumen seems to take second place to sheer energy.

`The Fall of Math' reminds me of Explosions in the Sky's `Those Who Tell the Truth...' but without all of the Texan outfit's subtlety and songwriting craft. However, if you are in the mood for something with raw energy this CD is an uplifting and thrilling listen. Good stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice!! 19 May 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This item sold out instantly, long before I had a chance to mobilize my bank account. Needless to say; I was heart broken. However, Amazon sported two extra copies! Excellent service. As for the music, this is, in my opinion 65daysofstatic at their best, mixing postrock and electronica in ever more creative ways. I saw them play this, ten years ago, and became an instant fan.
