This review is from: Muse Sick-N-Hour Mess Age (Audio CD)
For some reason this album got slated upon release; I don't see it myself. It starts with possibly the best start to an album...ever, Chuck D launching into "Whole lotta love...." never fails to make me want to dance like a deranged gibbon. "Give It Up" follows the lead off track in more mellow but no less danceable fashion and is surely a classic. This album is peppered with fantastic tunes, "I stand accused", "What kinda power we got?" and "Race against Time" are lyrical and musical masterpieces and the more live sound (see What side you on?) is a refreshing change from "Fear.." and "..a Nation of Millions.." dense weave of samples and beats. Fear not tho', this isn't PE wussing out, the samples, the anger, the energy and the message are all still there. Marvellous.
