An album full of surprises, Monsters Build Mean Robots excel at doing the unexpected. There is no category that the album fits into. Post Rock, indie, pop, alternative, this 5 track release shows the band flex their muscles in every aspect. You could think that the album be bound to fail as this type of music has been done over and over again, however the variety in aspects is executed extremely well. Each track sounds whole, and each instrument has its place within the tracks. The vocals add a hint of edginess, the strings add delicacy, which could have seemed at a juxtapose to the monolithic rhythms, but the resulting tracks are ones that will have you turning the volume up and tapping your feet with an inner fury.
