    Sticky: Re: FYF 2015

    Whoa, I won free passes for FYF, so I guess this isn't the year I'm skipping after all! Tons of giveaways may also be a sign of slow sales, but hey, I'm not complaining!

    Re: Muse 7th album.

    "Hopes dashed" would be an understatement. It's not worse than The 2nd Law, but the fact that I can't comfortably say it's better is a very bad thing.

    I'll still catch a show from them.

    Re: Muse 7th album.

    Two thumbs up. I like Reapers, but it still contains a few latter-day Muse gimmicks that annoy me. I have no complaints about this one.

    Album is still batting 2-for-5 in my book, though, so I hope...

    Re: Muse 7th album.

    I would probably love Reapers if it weren't for those extremely stupid "Drones!" chants. As is, it's probably still better than anything off their last album, or so far off this new album.
