5.0 out of 5 stars Save for solitude 4 Dec 2011
Format:MP3 Download
Mike Patton's latest film soundtrack is a big departure from his previous releases. Restrained, sparse and somewhat sombre, Patton has achieved something contrary to his usual style of dense, layered and interchanging compositions. Here, true musical textures have been crafted, relying on silence and quiet as much as other instrumentation (interstingly, all of the instruments were played by the man himself this time). Simple and complex at the same time, this is an outstanding and refreshingly different side of Mike Patton to add the the multitude of his other musical 'personalities'. Just don't expect any sing-alongs... This is Mike Patton the musician, not Mike Patton the vocalist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2 Nov 2011
By D.C.E - Published on Amazon.com
On the back of Mondo Cane this is a large step in yet another different direction for Patton. At first listen this is a deep score loaded with diverse emotional directions that is both challenging and yet has a well considered continuity from start to finish. The comparative subtlety of vocals (singing or otherwise) compared with most other Patton related projects is the biggest difference here, as is the sonic landscape itself - in short, it feels "softer". As a regular Patton listener, kudos to the man for having the balls to continually redefine himself as an artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Direction for an Artist Without Limits 7 Feb 2012
By W. OBrien - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I find continuity with this album and his broader portfolio of work. This is evolutionary step overall coalescing his entire body of work with an emphasis on composition and arrangements than any vocals. Which are there but buried in the shadows of the various scores. This seems more mature in as much as he seems less interested in pushing the bounds musical expression rather emphasizing the nuances and a simpler beauty discovered in his repertoire of music.

This album continues to grow on me and seems appreciation grows with each listen. I'm delighted when it comes in rotation on my playlist's and serves as wonderful background music to when creating my own art.

Overall, Mike Patton is an artist par excellence. His range seems unrivaled and beyond pedestrian comprehension, again. Bravo!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mike Patton's solo masterpiece 10 Dec 2011
By B-Goody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mike Patton has done a lot for music in the past 30+ years, as a member of "Mr Bungle", "Faith No More", "Tomahawk", "Fantomas" as well as "Peeping Tom".
This project was done by Patton for a film/book entitled "Solitude Of Prime Numbers". Do you need to know about the film first?. No. This is an epic soundtrack that's flows like a symphony. You have the voice, piano, keyboards, string sections and more of Patton's digital sounds mixed therein to create a entire song from beginning to end. The sound here makes me go through a lot of feelings, it's dark, mysterious, beautiful, calm and nothing Iv'e ever heard before. Like sitting on a dark beach on another plane of existence. Sit down and listen to it in it's entirety and let this music take you wherever you want, because that's what Mike Patton does. He takes music to the far extreme. There's no one like him, and one of the greatest musicians(under-rated)of our time. Any fans of the bands mentioned above, I would not pass this up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Drone 27 Jan 2013
By DPG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have had this and not listened to it much. After having a child I decided to download a lot of drone and trance music such as Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Stars of the Lid, Dead Texan and others. I put it on to promote a solemn and sleepy environment. I would put Solitutde of Prime Numbers in line with some of the darker drone music that I have been introducing myself to.

I don't profess to be an expert (on anything) but this album has continuity, expression, and mostly a calm. Though as you would expect it also has tension at times. This is the type of thing you can play and either pay close attention to or turn off with.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous and bizarre 12 Feb 2014

I love all of Mike Patton's projects and this one does not disappoint. He is an innovative thinker and will always have me as a fan. The music here is largely instrumental and it is delicate and haunting.
