I respect some of the risks they took but I’m not a fan. Glad some of you really like it though

 

Agreed. They definitely took a different direction and managed to not make it sound alle over the place. It's just not my taste.

I love it so much, from 4 releases this is the first time a Muse album has legitimately lived up to my hopes <3 don’t laugh but, especially given the extra loooong build up, that fact almost makes it emotional for me

 

I liked Drones a lot but I still had slightly higher expectations

Man The Void would be absolutely incredible if they remembered how to finish a song with bombast. That said, it sounds like a Kid A Radiohead track(sorry).

Noooooooooo

 

The restraint of the ending is one of the best aspects </3

 

Just realised Matt repeating that low ‘they are wrong’ at the end does remind me of Thom’s ‘we hope that you choke, that you chooooooke’ in Exit Music

The only my disappointment of The Void is when the snare comes in the middle of the song. If they want to build up the song. They should try different approach. But it doesn't change the fact that the void is one of the best song on this album.

“You keep tellin’ pretty lies

You play with the truth

*ooh*

Ya killin’ me with your”

 

I can already tell you I’m gonna be doing this an unhealthy amount around the house, in showers and in public

 

Probably the odd sudden spurt of

 

“FLOOOOOZY”

 

too

 

I’m gonna be a mess at gigs

The "it takes a leap of faith" bit is a bit too major and happy for what proceeds and follows imo yeah

This album sounds soooo fresh and sounds a lot more like "old Muse" than drones. They also sound so unafraid and it's amazing. If it didn't have Get Up and Fight it would be 10/10. I fucking love it.

I'm really happy about the final result. Have to give it some more listens before give a final opinion, but I'd say I love half of the songs, and the rest of them are solid except for DD, which is the worse song by miles.

 

Also, best album since Abso. I've already liked Drones quite a bit, but this album is just better for sure.

 

Also, GUAF is one of the better songs. Top 4 imho. Fight me! :LOL:

Listened to the google drive one at work. Thoughts after 1 listen:

This album is completely insane.

 

Algorithm is absolutely incredible and in a different league to everything else here.

 

I like all of the new tracks except.. surprise surprise.. Get Up and Fight, which is hilariously atrocious. I don't mind at this point though.

 

Propaganda reminds me of Odelay-era Beck in a really good way.

 

Break It to Me might be the most ridiculous thing the band has ever done, which is quite an achievement.

 

Blockades is almost torpedoed by those backing vocals, which may become annoying over time. Loved the guitar brutality.

 

Waited for a Big Bang in both The Void and TDS alternate... nothing came. They both sounded really good though! (Not as good as Hyper Chondriac Music, however, but again that's not a problem at all).

 

Dig Down alternate is better than the original; I weirdly prefer the original version of SH except for the shitty intro drums.

 

The 2nd worst track on the album is in fact not Dig Down but Thought Contagion, which sounds completely out of place and drags like hell.

Get Up and Fight reminds me of some shitty mall emo band from 2006 but the album is actually quite good and I didn't even expect it to be.

I thought of Hellogoodbye, but yours are pretty spot on too.

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?

I like the album!

 

Break It To Me is awesome. Not to mention Algorythim which is a New Retrowave song. And I love that style.

This was the least I expected from them to write a song in that style.

Blockades intro keeps reminding me a tiny bit of Adventure of a Lifetime by Coldplay

 

And now Algorithm's opening sounds like cleaned up Closer by NIN for a couple seconds, I gotta stop
