New Muse Single Is… Meh

muse-09I don’t know what’s happened to this band, seriously. They had a run of four albums that were some of the the very best that the 00s had to offer.

Then The Resistance landed in 2009 and the first crack appeared in Muse’s armour. Instead of the tight rock masterpieces we were used to, Muse delivered an album that was “conceptually impressive but musically all too familiar”.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt though because I love this band and I knew that they could do better. “The next album is going to melt faces” I predicted, “so I’ll just let The Resistance slide for now, nobody’s perfect”.

New Muse Single Sounds Like… Muse

museI mentioned yesterday that Muse were going to debut their new single on BBC Radio One yesterday evening and I’d try get my filthy mitts on it for you guys and thanks to Civilian, it’s a done deal.

No idea why music sites reported that Muse were going to debut the single “Unsustainable” off their new album The 2nd Law, because they debuted “Survivor”.

Get used to hearing this one, it’s been selected as the official song for the 2012 Olympics which is awesome when I think back to the fact that the first Olympics I remember watching was in 1992 and the official song was written by Pavarotti.

New Muse Track Drops Today

2008MattBellamyMuseDC230312It’s a big day for Muse fans because at 7.30 this evening (British Central Time), the band is going to premier it’s new single “Unsustainable” on BBC Radio 1.

I’m more than a little anxious to hear what their new material will sound like having watched the trailer video they released for their new album The 2nd Law.

I say this because the trailer seems to suggest the band have decided to go the dub-step route on this album which is a pretty radical departure from, well, everything they’ve released thus far.

Muse Going All Dubsteppy On New Album?

Images-3Just picked up a tweet from my main man @SchweppsRocka with the trailer for Muse’s album (The 2nd Law) that lands in Sept and I must say I’m… confused.

If the album trailer is anything to go by, then Muse have made the questionable decision to embrace dubstep with their new material which is already polarising fans left right and centre.

I thought we learned from the pile of shit that was Korn’s recent dubstep album, The Path Of Totality that rock bands need to avoid dubstep like the goddamn plague, but no. Apparently Muse missed that memo…

Here’s the vid:
