Re: Muse - The 2nd Law - September 2012

I am totally pumped up for some new Muse!

My only issue is this...why are so many established acts jumping on the dubstep bandwagon NOW? The time for that was a decade ago, not now.

For a band that likes to position themselves as so forward thinking, it's kind of a step back to anyone other than the people who think that dubstep is something new instead of realizing that it was played-out more than 5 years ago.

Nice. The Resistance was a big letdown after the amazing "Black Holes & Revelations"

Agreed. Hope this is a return to form.

Another hope for a return to form. The Resistance had a few good tracks, but quite a few lesser ones as well. It did have United States of Eurasia, which may be my favorite Muse song of all.

Re: Muse - The 2nd Law - September 2012

Can't wait for this one either. I actually like The Resistance quite a bit. I had never really listened to them much although I owned their earlier works. It was pretty much "Uprising" that drew me in. Now that I've completely saturated myself with all their stuff, it's obvious Absolution is their best work, but I still like everything they've done.

I wonder what the chances are this trailer is simply intro music for the album or a red herring? I can't see them doing a whole record like this.

Sounds like an intro if I ever heard one.

Did you hear the epic arrangement it was proceeded by? It only made up 30 seconds of the clip and honestly not that far off from the jam stuff they end up doing live. Also, when has Muse even done an album where everything sounded the same? I don't think the "dupstep album" worries are too warranted as of yet.

I can't fucking wait. Hope they hit the states for a tour in the Spring or something. Imma follow them around like an 18 year old groupie.

I'm hoping the tour comes around while it would still call for indoor venues. I hate the sound at whatever they call the venue in Tinley Park now.

Ohhhh... excited to hear about this one. The Resistance wasn't perfect, but I enjoyed it a lot and I have faith that this one'll be good too.

I listened to 'The Resistance' at least twice, it never impressed me, huge hopes for the new album.

You guys are nuts. The Resistance was fantastic, beginning to end.

If "The Resistance was fantastic, you've probably never heard the "Absolution" album....

Re: Muse - The 2nd Law - September 2012

Oh come on it's not that bad. I'll take Resistance over Showbiz or OoS any day.

I haven't been listening to them since their beginning or even the Absolution era, so can those who were seriously explain what is so bad about Resistance?

Ive been a fan of Muse since Showbiz in 1999...

Resistance absolutely trashes Absolution as an album

I like The Resistance too, but that may be pushing it to too far.

Re: Muse - The 2nd Law - September 2012

I actually think Absolution would be a stronger record if it ended after "Butterflies & Hurricanes". The last four tracks almost seem like "extra tracks" to me, as none of them are nearly as strong as the preceding tracks. The flow from the intro to B&H is probably the most consistently great stretch on any Muse album though.

2012 Olympics theme "Survival"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt__jKWoYH8

Strings, falsettos, riffage and solos, over the top backing vocals, "we will survive!" type lyrics

Well that was underwhelming. Liked the intro and the solo but not much else.

Re: Muse - The 2nd Law - September 2012

"Absolution" is pretty much perfection start to finish. Next two studio releases have been pale by comparison and attempts to go commercial that failed. Not that optimistic that the new one will not continue that trend.
