AllMusic Review by

Matmos is an extended meditation on the musical potential of weird noises. Integrating a range of distinctly non-musical sound sources (hair, breath, crustacean brain activity, etc.) into familiar contemporary forms such as electro, jungle, techno, and dubby downtempo breakbeat, the result is a perversion of both esoteric noise music and the (comparatively) more accessible electronica of artists such as Autechre, Locust, and mu-Ziq, which it most closely (but still only vaguely) resembles. Terrifically strange.
