    I know this isn't, ahem, officially out yet.

    Anyone else heard it?

    So far, I wouldn't say it's hugely different to 'Origin Of Symmetry' but they're definitely maturing in terms of songwriting.

    Some very cool Chris W bass stuff, particularly the bass line to 'Time Is Running Out'

    Yeah, muse is great, this is a very good album.(from what I've heard)

    really creative stuff.
  4. Really?? I have it for like a month here in Australia...im annoyed i cant go see there sideshow for the big day out..its the night before school starts again and there isnt enough good bands to pay the money to go to the big day out

    Anyways the album is really good...they have a unique sound but lots of the songs are different which is also good
    The DVD that comes with album is great aswell...usually dvds with cds are really short but this one goes for about 40 mins and is a doco of them making the album and they have clips from writing every song on the album

    Well, I did originally start the thread in August :)

    I think this is their most overall consistent album. Still loving it.

    'time is running out' is constantly being played on the radio in australia, and im loving it. i love the funky bass lines with overdrive. in one of their songs they apartenty put steel bits (screws, nuts, bolts) in the strings of the piano and on top of the piano to get a distorted sound.
