MMIX is apparently 2009. So... Yeah. What do you all think the relevance of the title will be, if any?

MMIX stands for Mature Mix. :cool: or maybe Meow Mix? :p how about Mobile Missile #9? :inquisitive:
Or maybe, just maybe, it stands for a certain type of computer architecture, a 64-bit RISC computer. ..I'm having flashbacks about computer programming, time to escape! :escaping2:

Maybe they got the idea to put more instrumental things on their album in 2009?

Now that listen to it carefully it has a Jon Hopkins sound to it, I heard he might of done something with this album as well, but could just be Eno, idk. Also 2009 in roman is MMIX not M.M.I.X.

In an interview, I've read/heard (I can't remember) that it really doesn't mean anything. It kinda refers to someone they were working with during the making of the album (some technician, I think...or a producer...:thinking: ) and he had an idea about a...a sound maybe ? :thinking: I really can't remember the details at all :lol: Anyway, the point is that it doesn't mean anything. (and I'm sure of it, it's the only thing I remember :lol: )

^Yes, and they also said that it's "Matt McGinn Is Awesome", but somehow an X got in there instead of an A

Out of the air but perhaps Mylo Xyloto (the protagonist) has a longer name and they are his full initials..

Mylo M. I. Xyloto
