  2. Dead Inside: Starts off okay, but the second part of the song is too much. Not what I want to here from Muse at all. Really like the production on this on, though. 6/10 Psycho: Quite a decent song they made out of that riff. 7/10 Mercy: Again, not what I want here from Muse. Not quite as horrible as Follow Me but I still don't feel the need to here it again. 4/10 Reapers: Easily the best song on the album. My mate actually remarked that Reapers is quite poppy which suprised me but it's actually true. It's just disguised in loads of heavy guitars, effects and solos. And it works really well. 9/10 The Handler: Solid. I don't quite get the general excitement though. Doesn't sound that much like OOS to me. Still probably as a good a rock song as we're going to get from Muse in this day and age. 7/10 Defector; Closes the strong middle section of the album. Love me some Queen vocals. 7/10 Revolt: Rubbish that. Sadly Muse seem to write way too many of these cheesy pop songs nowadays. 3/10 Aftermath: Starts off brilliantly with an intro that invokes David Gilmour and then sadly turns into a weak ballad. The guitar is really brilliant in this one though. 5/10 The Globalist: Had such high expectations for this. I like each of the three parts (particularly the first one) but they are too disconnected from each other and it doesn't really feel like one song. 6/10 Drones: Love it actually and works really well as a closer. 8/10 Overall slightly disappointed (I had already lowered my expectations after the last couple of albums). But it's definitely better than T2L and I really like the album concept. 6/10 Ranking: 1. Origin of Symmetry - 10/10 2. Black Holes & Revelations - 9/10 3. Absolution - 8/10 4. Showbiz - 7/10 5. Resistance - 7/10 6. Drones - 6/10 7. The 2nd Law - 4/10
  3. Is there any further information about the 24 bit / 96 kHz version of the album? Is was mentioned in the original press release but it doesn't seem to be included in the various pre-order options.
  4. What an awful song Explorers is. At least Follow Me is so aggresively and painfully bad that you want to shout, smash something or punch someone. But Explorers just leaves you completely unaffected. There's no reaction you can possibly have to Explorers because literally nothing happens in that song. They really shouldn't play it live.
  5. 01 Black Holes & Revelations 02 Origin of Symmetry 03 Absolution 04 Showbiz 05 The Resistance 06 The 2nd Law Tough choice between BH&R and OOS. In the end Feeling Bad decided it. How I hate that song.

    Animals

    What a song. If you replace Feeling Good with Animals OOS goes from 10/10 to 11/10. Actually fits in pretty well in my opinion. And Darkshines and Megalomania are certainly more appropriate company than crap like Follow Me and Explorers.
  8. If Matt would bulk up a little he'd probably look exactly like Frank Lampard.
  9. 01 Origin of Symmetry - 10/10 02 Black Holes & Revelations - 10/10 03 Absolution - 9/10 04 Showbiz - 8/10 05 The Resistance - 7/10 06 The 2nd Law - 6/10
  10. After playing around with it for a bit I have arrived at this tracklist: 01 The 2nd Law: Unsustainable 02 Panic Station 03 Madness 04 Big Freeze 05 Liquid State 06 Save Me 07 Supremacy 08 The 2nd Law: Isolated System 09 Animals 10 Prelude 11 Survival Explorers and Follow Me are definitely not good enough for me. Don't feel the urge to ever hear them again. I kind of want to get rid of Big Freeze und Liquid State as well but I'm keeping atm to at least have 40min of music. Save me is a tough one. I love that it sounds a bit like Porcupine Tree. A PT b side, though. I like the other songs. Survival and Animals are epic. Still probably the worst Muse album.
