    When it comes to albums like Resistance and the 2nd Law, the Dude is wise:

    So I'm just never going to listen to this. Sounds like the safe route to me.

    I liked The Resistance and I thought that the new album is really terrible.

    did you really expect the crowd here to like it? It's not in their top 3 by any means, but it's kind of weird how the same people have been posting about how bad they are for like 5 years now. Other forums I read(no, not Muse fan sites) haven't been nearly this critical.

    Thing is, I really liked Muse a lot up until The Resistance. Although, I definitely think things started to go downhill once Starlight became a hit.

    Agreed. Starlight becoming a hit spawned fluff like Neutron Star Collision and eventually shat out whatever it is that raped my earholes yesterday.

    I can get that. I would not have this username if I hadn't registered pre-Resistance.

    They're just past their prime creatively, as most bands are after 10+ years. If I can get 3-4 songs I really enjoy every 3 years I can't complain too much.

    Uprising
    Follow Me
    Plug In Baby

    I haven't listened to the whole album but Supremacy is fucking awesome. Probably one of my favorite Muse songs.

    I like the new album, and I liked the Resistance. It's not the same band as before, but it's extremely listenable if you just take it as a band who makes interesting music. It definitely brings them into the Prince "they're music genuises, but you won't like everything you hear" department. I even like Unsustainable - their dubstep song. And I'm not a dubstep guy, so maybe I'm uninformed in the "art" of what makes it good, but it sounds interesting, and I can imagine them recreating it live.

    My main problem with the new record is that most of the songs devalue the bass so much, and the bass is what makes so many Muse songs great. The album starts with Supremacy rocking the bass (and doesn't it sound like their new attempt to make a James Bond theme?) and then promptly goes away from it completely. I will say that Survival works way better in the middle of the album than as a single, imho.

    They're not prog-rockers for the 2000s anymore, they're pop rock with funk and whatnot. That's okay by me.

    The album is growing on me a bit too. I mean it is not a great album and easily the worst in their catalogue...but it has a few redeeming spots.

    Supremacy is badass heavy Muse. Madness is a decent pop single. Follow Me and is good anthemic type of song.

    IMO the Chris songs really drag the album down at the end...they both suck...especially Save Me. And Survival still stinks.

    Overall a mixed album with mixed results...but not as terrible as I initially thought.

    Yeah I feel like people are overreacting. There's a few cheesy tracks, yeah. For the most part though I think it's fun.

    They're about to play the Roundhouse right now, itunes is streaming it. Just go to the itunes store and there'll be a big 'ol link to it.

    Thanks for the heads up on the itunes show. Itll be interesting to hear some of these songs live.

    Funny, they just did Panic Station into a cover of Sign O' The Times at a radio station set recently.

    Not a bad setlist for this point in their careers where inevitably we are going to have a setlist with a lot of newer material

    3 pre-Black Holes songs. And dropping Stockholm and Hysteria? Awful.

    But plug in baby and new born. I watched most of the show. It was pretty awesome still. They really are just a phenomenal live band. All of Matt's flourishes really make everything work. Panic Station was a big dance number and follow me was pretty epic. Missed Supremacy which im sure was the best new one.

    A setlist typed out is different than hearing the performance. Go watch it. It was much better than that list leads you to believe, I think. They aren't at full dismissal level just yet.

    i think i'd still see them if they were playing a festival and there wasn't a conflict. as for paying to see them on their own, not gonna happen.

    Yep, and the three most obvious, predictable ones at that. The ones we've heard at every single gig since 2004. I guess we shouldn't expect the band that tried too hard to be Queen but ended up being more like The Killers 2.0 to make some creative or surprising setlist choices. And you know American setlists will be even worse, so I bet New Born will be dropped when they come here.

    also they didn't play that dubstep song today. i'm guessing they're saving it for the shitty american crowds.
