The supermassive distaste for dubstep on this forum just makes me laugh. They do it on exactly ONE fucking track. One. And to tell you the truth, it's not overdone and it actually sounds kinda cool to me. Some of you people on here and your sensitive gag reflexes just make me chuckle. All electronic-sounding stuff is not dubstep. Get it through your heads.

EDIT: Also, are you saying that "Black Holes" was a disappointment?!?

There is some truth here. The songs are a bit more tame this time around, and there are really no clear bangers like "Stockholm", "Hysteria", "Supermassive" or "Knights" on the new album. However, I think to say "it blows" is exaggerating quite a bit.

Congratulations on being objective and / or patient. Kids these days. It's all about instant gratification or fuck it and move on to the next sensory stimulus.

Another overstatement in my opinion.

One song. One fucking song. Cool your jets, son.

I do agree that the overall feel is that there is less to get excited about on this album, but there are definitely some classic Muse sounds here, and it's actually less of a departure from their typical style than "The Resistance" was. In a way, it's a return to form, with some experimentation in a few new directions. It's interesting, but not great.

Nat, I've never wanted to high-five you so bad

I listened to the album last night, and really liked it. Like Nat said, there was only one track with dubstep influence, and it worked, too.

You are definitely correct in everything you say Nat. I also noticed there was only one dubstep sounding song and that didn't stop me from listening to it. Every song is very tame and piano driven. It's definitely Muse, but not how I like hearing them. I like having at least a few hard hitting, guitar driven songs, but this album lacks that. I know Mathew wanted to experiment with more of an orchestral sounding album. I thought he would do something amazing after hearing Exogenesis, but it didn't turn out so well in my opinion. I still have hope for Muse in the future. I'm sure Mathew just needed to get these types of songs out of his system.

The same way Mikael needed to get his inner 70's prog nerd out into the light with Heritage, right?

Now this post I can get on board with.

In order:


I didn't say it was all dubstep and Electronica, but its heavily in there. the only song, Save Me had anything redeeming about the album and even that didn't.....save the album.

And yes Black Holes and Revelations couldn't have been more of a disappointment in my eyes. As an old fan of Muse I liked when the electronics was in the background, not the forefront. ever since BH&R, that's what it's been.

I'm 24, I can't be that much younger then you. I've been a fan since I discovered Muse on the Little Nicky soundtrack. I'm not into this style of music, it's not growing to grow on me. Muse tried that twice with Black Holes and Revelations and The Resistance, it didn't work then, and this album is more of what I don't like from the band. More so than ever.

Albums don't have to be perfect off the bat. My favorite albums had to grow on me. But it also has to be something I can get into. For me, that's not Muse anymore.
