Why according to critics? Most reviews have given the album pretty meh scores.

 

For me, I think this album will be about as good as Showbiz. Can't imagine it being anywhere near as good as Absolution, OOS or BH&R.

 

I don't know why, I just have a feeling critics will like it, and is there reviews out for Drones?

 

I have the feeling it might be their best album yet, so I apologize for having faith in it, but it's just how I feel. The idea that the whole album is one story, the exploration of the human mind, where we have a protagonist is something that intrigues me. And to get to explore that along with some dark and heavy music, I can't wait!

I have a feeling fans will like it a lot more than critics. I think a lot of critics will get too hung up on the concept to focus on the actual music.

That's been my assumption from several reviews. They've criticised the concept more than actually reviewing the music which has been damn decent if not great in many parts.

All I can remember hearing about the album from critics is commentary on the lyrics, barely anything on the music itself

sickest poll results i've seen for a track since i have been here.

 

the handler is better than every song on T2L. If it weren't for Exo, i would be ready to say the same about TR. And i still might, over time. :dance::dance::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Wow, that's a terrible ranking

 

It is?

 

BH&R / OOS

Absolution

Showbiz / Drones

TR

T2L

 

Pretty middle of the pack, like 6-7/10.

I'm just surprised that what we've heard hasn't put Drones right past Showbiz already.

It's a minute long and it varies very little, should've been about half the length. Could've used a bit more crash from Dom as well imo.

 

So what? Then don't listen to a drone song either.

 

Btw that part just works perfectly. And the drumbeat is really catchy as well, I bit post-punkish beat.

This.

 

My gut instinct is that I'll enjoy it at least as much as BH&R.

 

But anyway, everybody's entitled to their own incorrect opinion.

It gets boring, pretty simple really. Also, FWIW I quite like drone music, totally different genre though and don't see at all how that's relevant.

Half of Showbiz is great, the other half is meh to shit. Drones so for has 1 great song, 3 pretty good ones and 1 guff one. Both pretty mixed bags really and both average out to about 'decent'.

I can easily imagine it being as good as Absolution and BH&R. I know I'm in the minority, but I've never been a huge fan of Absolution. The arpeggios get annoying after a certain point, and I feel like it's Muse's "safest" album. I love BH&R but it's pretty hit or miss.

I agree more crash in solo and also louder bass would've been good in that section. But overall, really cool.
