Album Notes
Bubblemath is a Minneapolis quintet with a simple mission statement: "To be a Minneapolis quintet with a simple mission statement."

So far, so good.

Bubblemath’s music bridges the gap between the technical precision and grand theatrics of progressive rock, and the quirky hook-driven appeal of alternative rock. Pissed off, hilarious, complicated, avant prog-pop jazzcore at its most pissed off, hilarious, and complicated.

This particular blend of styles has tapped the fervent hunger of the world’s progressive rock community. As a result, Bubblemath debuted to great national, as well as international, acclaim.

If you are a fan of complicated music-for-musicians type compositions and performances, you are a fan of Bubblemath.

Bubblemath’s debut CD, Such Fine Particles of the Universe, earned them the 2002 Best Eclectic Recording Award from the Minnesota Music Academy.

Bubblemath are currently in the studio recording their second album. This long-fabled sophomore release will be available for mass purchase in early 2007.

Bubblemath is awesome. w00t.
Great album with lots of fun music. What more can you say? GET IT WHILE YOU STILL CAN!


A promising debut.
I was seduced by the band on MySpace when they decided to invite me to be their friend. I had previously turned down many such requests from other bands but the draw of Bubblemath was too strong. Intriguing, interesting and exciting stuff....almost as if Yes and Devo had collided and created a new deranged form of music. Can't wait to check out the follow-up!

extremely entertaining
This CD is like an orange; its really good. Bubblemath really describe themselves best (see above) but I'm listening to Gogol Bordello, Sweep the leg johnny and the Mars Volta atm, and its really somewhere in between all those guys but like a canvas splashed in a fury of sexual energy with every bright colour there is and then masturbated upon. The only bad point is the lack of depth; no deep sorrow or mourning here, just bouncy surface level fun fun fun.


Sneakily enjoyable
I went out on a whim by buying this CD.. I had just started listening to Bubblemath two days prior, and got quickly hooked, so I bought the album.. got it.. I laughed for a moment at the CD case, it was nice.. with the elemental symbols.. then listened to it, and was surprised by how consistently different and plain enjoyable the CD was. It's a definite win, in my opinion.

Living in Izmir/Turkey, I found Bubblemath at myspace and was so impressed that I ordered their CD immediately. An impressive blend of distorted guitars,wicked odd rhythms and polyphonic medieval sounding vocals...If you like Gentle Giant- get this one now.


"Do you think you'll ever write a spherical song?" Christopher Morris
This is genuinely one of the most entertaining CDs I have ever bought. Musically, lyrically, even the packaging; it's obvious that a lot of thought has been put into this gem. Every song is unique, always employing fantastic musicianship with thought provoking lyrics- I honestly can't think of a bad thing to say about this album. I certainly recommend buying a copy: you won't regret it!

Steve Mueske

quirky and inventive
Five stars! This album is full of whimsy and downright scary musicianship. Imagine Faith No More thrown into a blender with the Tubes, throw in a jazz sensibility, a drummer who can rock with the best progressive drummers and you have a recipe for surprise. I wish more people knew about this band. It's a real crime they are not a huge industry success. But then again I'm glad. I feel like I have a slice of something special. A bit of melty, gelatinous, space, prog-rock, jazz with Elfmanesque lyrics and vocals. Do yourself a favor and pick this up!

Eli Litwin

Really great album. The grooves are so tight and yet they flow so smoothly, even with all the complex time changes. Love the little metal flourishes in the drumming. Catchy hooks that are very melodically adventerous, sometimes reminiscent of prime Faith No More. The band name fits the music perfectly. Looking forward to the next album!

Robert Muñoz

Very enjoyable
Found this band on MySpace. Liked 'em well enough. They put their CD on sale. Figured, what the hell. Got it. Liked 'em even more. They sound like a cross between Faith No More and Dream Theater with a dash of Mike Keneally on occasion. Very excellent debut.

mike carra
