    Hey guys,

    Any of you lot heard this yet? It came out about two hours ago, and I've noticed some Muse related content frequently recently.

    It's well worth a listen.

    What does everyone expect from the 2nd Law?

    I expect to mourn the death of my favorite band.

    Really? Muse have never used the better songs from an album as singles etc... and I respect the way they've changed.

    I mean, did you enjoy The Resistance?

    Madness is not a brilliant song, it's true.

    Neither was Survival.

    Neither was Unsustainable.

    Things can only get better!

    I love The Resistance, I have the album art as a tattoo. I posted a picture of it in another thread (this one) discussing the new album. I'm just not a dubstep fan, so Unsustainable didn't do it for me. And I feel that Madness is just a weak song in general. Sure they don't always release their best first, but still. I expected/hoped for better.

    And don't get me wrong, I'm not a part of the old-Muse-or-no-Muse crowd. I enjoy it when a band develops and progresses; I just don't like where Muse has wound up for this album.

    I'm hoping the songs Chris wrote will be better.

    Good to hear, man. I loved The Resistance. I saw them at Wembley Stadium in like... 2010? They had a freaking blimp, and everything.

    I love Muse :)
     
  9. Wow. Not a lot of love for the new Muse. I really like the song Madness.

    Never listened to Muse before, I actually like this song and it makes me interested in checking out what else they've done.

    Not liking it. If I find myself fast-forwarding through a song... then it's not good enough to keep my attention. Glad they are at least "mixing it up" though. This might be a song played in clubs for awhile. I can picture strippers dancing to this.
