Wow, how many reviews?

Just 4 reviews on metacritic.

But if you count all from first post right now it drops 1 percent below BHAR. So who knows which album will be "better" when more reviews will be published :)

It'll land somewhere between 70-75 would be my bet once all reviews are in.

My guess is 80. Pitchfork is gonna definitely aim to bring that down, I don't know if The Needle Drop gets counted in that aggregate but if so then that probably will too.

Fantano will give it a 1.

 

Yep, he despise everything Muse has done lately... And I think that he didn't like Psycho, and he said it's one of their worst songs :LOL::LOL:. So, if that counts in the Drones metascore... We can assume that Pitchfork will rate it bad too... I don't think it will surpass BH&R, a 70 will be my bet, even if it's obviously way better than T2L.

It seems that most reviews are criticising the lack of focus in the final few tracks. No surprise there, I guess.

I actually don't know. He tweeted out the Defector video so there's at least one song he likes on it. He'll rate it higher than T2L

Worth remembering that TR got a 5.9 from Pitchfork. In fact I thought both their TR and T2L reviews were pretty fair.

 

The City Blog review there is very good, btw.

By The Sydney Morning Herald. It also has a 5/5 in Kerrang and a 6/10 in Classic Rock, but, not online articles :LOL:

 

tl;dr of what Kerrang says?

They call it a classic, literally: "a claustrophobic classic that sharpens the focus of what is possible in the name of high-minded rock" :LOL:. They said its music is pitched between high entertainment and psychological warfare. They mention Pink Floyd's The Wall saying: "not since The Wall has a stadium rock album being quite as grandly troubled", for it being pessimistic. Basically, they loved it :LOL::LOL:
