CD Reviews

The staticky sounds of lovin'
J. HANSIS | United States | 08/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"these guys are continually earning positive comparisons to Postal Service, but Mobius Band definitely have more of an edge to their sound. this is the perfect balance between guitar-based rock and electronic music, with neither element outshining the other.

also, the songwriting is completely on point. the melodies will hook you in right away, but upon closer listening, you will notice the poppiness is contrasted with strong, sometimes dark lyrical content.

overall this album just sounds very honest. i don't sense any pretension or posturing that is currently plaguing the indie rock scene. i like this album because it is pushing the boundaries of what pop music can sound like, yet even my mom could enjoy it."
Heard about this record from a friend...
Laura | Brooklyn, NY | 08/28/2005

"and this is by far the smartest and most cohesive record i've heard in a long time. i love the cool breeze vocals that are emotive (but not emo!) and not too hipster-detached. very excited to see them live and spread the word - so if you're reading this, do yourself a favor and buy both the EP and full album as they're honestly better than arcade fire and bloc party combined! seriously - mobius band has some lasting songs that deserve a good listen and a permanent spot in your record collection."
Moderate Sounds of Static
Matt Stephens | 09/14/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Mobius Band had everything going for them leading up to their debut full-length: they've already released a couple of outstanding EPs, they put on a great live act, and they've been compared to some of the most popular bands in their genre. Sad to say, they didn't live up to the hype with their first LP.

The album starts out slow. It ends slow. Where it recaptures some of what's come before is on songs like "You're Wrong", where it revisits Radiohead's "I Might Be Wrong", or on the song "I Just Turned 18", the closest they come on the album to an FM-friendly track. Songs like Philadelphia test the patience, and beg to be skipped because you know what's left to come, and it's easy to tell that you don't need to hear it.

Don't get me wrong. I really like this band. A 3 star on Amazon means that it's an OK album. And that's what it is. Ok. Bands like The Postal Service or The Broadcast are being done an injustice if you refer to them based on this album alone. I'll look forward to future releases by the Mobius Band, because I know they have more to give than this album alone."
