Muse - The 2nd Law
I will start off by saying that I loved Absolution.
However, that was the last Muse album I enjoyed.
I get it. They make huge, catchy rock anthems, with a theatrical bent. There's nothing wrong with that. Lord knows I listen to enough music that can fit into that description.
But not this. Oh no...not this at all.
It's like they went into this saying, "How can we sound like a futuristic version of Queen?" The answer is lots of synths, lots of falsetto, and more than a hint of dubstep scattered throughout. I listened to this earlier today, and it was all I could do to get to the end.
At this point, I know what Muse is. And I guess I'm just not on board.
