One day, I was walking around my favourite store, which usually has a healthy supply of all different genres of music. As I was taking my usually hour looking through the thousands of titles, I saw the eloquently written Mudvayne inscribed on a jewel case. I took it out to see that it was their third studio album, "Lost and Found". I decided to take it home with me that day and give it a listen.

Mudvayne has a tendency to combine different styles of metal, including progressive, alternative, and traditional metal genres. When bands do this, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. In the case of "Lost and Found", it totally works. And the vocals give us a small dose of blacker-metal noises, making for a four piece genre fusion, making for Mudvayne's album, "Lost and Found".

Several tracks give us a mix of these genres, such as 'Fall Into Sleep', 'TV Radio', 'Choices', and my personal favorite from the album, 'Rain. Sun. Gone'. The vocals have the black metal sound I mentioned before, but have a Breaking-Benjamin feel to the instrumentals.

The music has a way of being consistent and inconsistent at the same time, giving for a flowing, rhythmic kind of album. Along with this shifting style, the vocals are absolutely stunning. Chad Grey is amazing when it comes to shifting between notes and simply yelling (artistically). Giving a sort of blend of dark and light in this album.

Certified 'GOLD' by the RIAA, "Lost and Found" deserves it's popularity, and is definitely a good album from Mudvayne.

Such an under-appreciated band.
