Perfect Self is the debut album by nu metal band Stereomud. It was released on May 22, 2001 through Loud Records and was manufactured via Columbia Records. The album met with moderate commercial success, with its two singles "Pain", and "Steppin Away", both of which featured their own music videos.

Musically, the album can be described as a hard rock with metal influences, similar in style to that of Sevendust (bassist Corey Lowery is younger brother to Clint Lowery of Sevendust, and Dark New Day). The album's sound varies from rock, and metal based songs, as vocalist Erik Rogers also varies between clean tone singing and the traditional screaming found in metal music. The album is listed as having a total of twenty-three tracks on it (which was a "lucky" number for Lowery) however, ten of these tracks are listed as "[untitled track]". These tracks are small electronica based interludes that are variations of the final track "Perfect Self", which is a blend of acoustic and electronica, the album sold more 100,000 in US.[2]
