With its slow building ambience, old world influences pillaging a list of bizarre and ancient instruments too numerous to mention, and frail vocals, Múm has produced a truly zen CD. As epic as it is fragile, there’s a touch of spaghetti-western-final-gun-battle score, over the top but in their own nice way quality to almost every track but cut with an Amelie softness. Most people’s enjoyment of this band will no doubt depend on what effect the lead vocals have subjectively. To some, she may sound like a broken-winged angel pleading for God’s help in line with a same Bjork dealing with Beth Gibbons’ emotions, but to others she may just be a little too Elmo or Robin, Kermit’s nephew, to break through to a new plane of depression and wonder. Or she could be both and that’s why you like it. It’s a musical yin and yang.
