0.0 Jacob Royal STAFF | May 22nd 12

Art By Numbers come out of nowhere with their debut, but the most important thing to understand is that
they aren't trying to reinvent the wheel. They only aim to build off what's already been established within
progressive metal - they take chips of what they like, peel the genre down layer by layer. But where Reticence:
The Musical (silly name) ends up is strictly in mid-range terrain, for nothing memorable stands out after the
lights dim. This may be due to the singer being too standard for the quirky music his band makes, or just
from some strange songwriting choices. However, overall there are much more veritable sources of
progressive out there, and while there's certainly nothing wrong with Reticence (it has its enjoyable moments),
it's not an album this guy remembers one bit.

4.5 superbNick Senior | April 27th 12

This is surprisingly fantastic. The band takes cues from BtBaM, Muse, and THA and creates one hell of a fun album.

3.5 greatRyanSmithers | May 25th 12

This is great! Been listening on the official stream and have been blown away. For a "debut" album, this is just excellent. Will be purchasing on May 29th. With time and future releases the very minor issues with some of the overuse of shred will be even more tastefully placed. But every song is unique. Regression of the Meme is great.

3.0 goodPhilalethes | May 23rd 12

Good musicians playing music that breaks no new ground, and doesn't quite reach the levels in terms of songwriting of the bands they obviously try to emulate.

Why oh why aren't there more bands like this around? Oh that's right, most musicians could never pull this off. These guys have proven after only one release that they can play with the big kids on the technical/progressive playground.

This album is a progressive masterpiece.

4.0 excellentLunaticSoul | January 28th 13

Plus 0.5 because it's a debut, and what a debut! Catchy and with a great production, one of the surprises of 2012.

Bump

1.5 very poorMichael Snoxall | December 26th 12

A bland, generic and completely bloated progressive rock album that tries to fit in with the older crowd of Dream Theater fans to show that they too can write boring and unenjoyable songs.
