  1. I think it's totally on point saying: "does that make it good pop, or are they simply less fun to kick around now?" I remember being upset when Muse started going really over the top with stuff like USoE and Survival. Hell, I literally swore off Muse for a while after Survival because I couldn't believe they'd be so silly as to be unfun. But, well, 3 albums later I guess I've just accepted they weren't trying something new, they were finding who they were.
  2. I had to end up using my phone, too. Managed to get 2 GA tickets. Stupid expensive, but I haven't seen the band since 2013 and haven't been to the new arena yet, so whatever. Just REALLY hoping that because it's a state of the art new area, we actually get a respectable setlist for once. The 2013 Arco show was absolutely embarrassing.
  3. I actually agree largely with the Sputnik Music review. I think I like the ones they also liked more than them, but also essentially agree on their opinion. It's pretty well-written and seems to be by someone who doesn't have a bone to pick with the band. https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/78375/Muse-Simulation-Theory/
  4. Okay, fine, we're doing the ranking thing already? 1. Absolution 2. Origin of Symmetry 3. Black Holes & Revelations 4. The Resistance / Showbiz 5. Simulation Theory 6. Drones 7. The 2nd Law
  5. I feel like if I heard this on the radio for the first time not knowing who it was, I'd be kind of into it initially and be like, "Huh, that voice is so familiar..." Then the chorus would hit and I'd go, "Oh. It's Muse. Yikes."
  6. As with every new album cycle, I cannot wait for the inevitable Pitchfork review. They sure hate Muse, but I find the way they write about them absolutely hysterical and clever. From Drones: "Drones might as well be overlain with Entourage, à la Wizard of Oz/Dark Side of the Moon, for the ultimate in critical hate-consumption. Muse’s operatic vocal runs, tablature-bustin’ riffs, and CGI'd production feel unmistakably similar to the way Doug Ellin brandishes yachts, celebrity cameos, and bared breasts. If it’s luxury porn, just own up—we know it when we see it." From T2L: "And titans shall clash as Bellamy speaks with the conviction of a man who is either going to tell us they'll never take our freedom or to release the kraken. With dramatic flair, he intones "your true emancipation is a fantasy," which... OK. But "the time..." Go on. "...it has come," that "it," perfect. "To destrooooyyyyyy..." Destroy what? Make sure you put your drink down as Bellamy screams "YOUR SUPREMACYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!" because all of a sudden having The 2nd Law only in audio form feels pathetically inadequate-- next time you will place it against footage from Starship Troopers, although the closest visual equivalent to this batshit moment is a dinosaur with a cowboy hat manning a F-15 and blowing evil aliens to bits while scoring the game-winning touchdown in the Super Bowl."
  7. This album makes The 2nd Law feel restrained. I am pretty sure I won't find myself listening to this album often, but I also feel, unlike T2L, that I won't be upset when I do. Gospel Dig Down is pretty awesome, however. Who would have seen that coming?
