I don't mind the theme, I mind the execution. I feel like they haven't developed much as artists and aren't putting in much effort - there are a lot of similarities between their new and old work, but the composition and lyrics of the new albums are less complex while the production quality is considerably higher. Of course, you can say this about many bands.
I saw Muse a few times before they "broke" popularly (pre-Showbiz).
I know it sounds like ultimate scenester wanker thing to say, but imo 90% of musical artists become diluted as they reach broader appeal. I think it is simply the nature of commercial music production. I have to agree with lancer: listen to the first 2 albums, ignore the other tosh they produced, be a little sad that the live show will never be anywhere near what it was (Leeds festival 2001 <3)
I could reel of a huge list of bands that got progessively more and more pedestrian as they sold more and more records, but it would just be sad :<
Honestly I think the music sounds like muse.. just the singing is so damn LAZY in that new song. I have no fucking clue why, it is just so damn lazy when it comes to the vocals like he is not trying or some shit. The music was fine but the lyrics and singing... it was like they didn't try at all.
Bliss is probably a personal fave but I really liked hysteria
The solution? Just listen to their older stuff. Origin of Symmetry was great, I find it hard to fault it.
if you eat the same sandwich no matter how good for a month, you hate it. I love muse but I like to add some new stuff to the list from time to time.
*edit* yeah now that I listen to it again without having rage. it is the stupid fucking chorus
It could be wrong, could be wrong, but it should have been right It could be wrong, could be wrong, to let our hearts ignite It could be wrong, could be wrong, are we digging a hole?
It could be wrong, could be wrong, this is out of control It could be wrong, could be wrong, it can never last It could be wrong, could be wrong, must erase it fast It could be wrong, could be wrong, but it should have been right It could be wrong could be....
fuck that is stupid crap!
the way they sing it might as well add some dooby dooos to it.
