Some of them are awesome, although I miss Chris :(

Yes, I thought that was a bit unfair, too. :(

Few things are more frustrating to a music fan than the sell-out record selling a fuckload of records. Muse – once merely faintly ridiculous purveyors of awesome riffage and vague undergraduate nihilism – started their slide into the U2/Killers quicksand of generically uplifting arena rock with this record. There’s actually some great pop songs in the front half, and genre experiments that predate the band’s two-album sense of humour deficiency. ‘Map of the Problematique’ is a crazy fun industrial underground Kraut-rave nightmare, and ‘Supermassive Black Hole’ and ‘Starlight’ are lightweight but flawlessly constructed pop.

 

But the second half is loaded with doomy bullshit like the shameless System of A Down rip ‘City of Delusion’ (featuring a didgeridoo!) and the turgid anthem-for-nothing ‘Knights of Cydonia’ – the longest Hottest 100 #1 ever (and the dumbest, for all of a year). The newest Muse track, ‘Madness’, revisits the best of their witty pop side – it’d be nice if they stopped trying to start a revolution. – Caitlin Welsh

 

They usually like Muse so this is interesting :chuckle:

 

 

EDIT: I thought this was a new article but turns out they just reposted it to their Facebook page anyhow.

NME tidbit on last night: http://www.nme.com/news/muse/88257

 

Wasn't it "Assassin, Assassin" they were chanting, not "Knights of Cyd, Knights of Cyd"? Because let's be honest - Muse are never not going to play Knights of Cydonia.

 

I know this was a while ago, but that is embarrassing

Of course Matt invested in this! :LOL:

 

Matt Bellamy, the lead singer of the British band Muse—whose most recent album was entitled Drones—is also, it turns out, one of the company’s first investors.

 

There’s now a drone racing league that feels like pod racing from Star Wars

 

*And NME picked up the story too: http://www.nme.com/news/muse/91034

Matt did an interview with Nick Grimshaw this morning and apparently suggested Adele could help calm her nerves of headlining Glastonbury by joining them for a song. Could be interesting.

 

I like the quote he texted Chris Martin when the poster was unveiled with Muse above Coldplay going "Keep trying and you'll top the poster someday." :chuckle:

 

For those of you looking for audio:

The trained hawks being used to take out "toy" drones is a real thing. I was really pissed off when I read it, since they're doing nothing to protect the birds from harm from the props, and just assuming they'll be okay. Fine against plastic, but a good carbon fiber blade will do real damage to the poor birds.

 

The AI breeding babies is true as well, I suppose, if you really think about it. :chuckle:

So Muse are not only saving the album format, but rock music altogether? :LOL:
