5.0 out of 5 stars A new direction?, 12 Oct. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The 2nd Law (Audio CD)
This seems to be a bit of marmite album - though I'm glad to see that the 5* votes are starting to pile up. I love everything Muse have ever done; their best work is sublime. My own feeling about this album is that maybe the band have grown up a bit, there's less of the angst-y teenager, more reflective adult in the lyrics. I strongly disagree with reviewers who say they've sold out. This is Muse moving on, and moving on in a very interesting direction. I've listened to the album twice now. Even on my first listen I felt that this was probably the best thing I've heard this year. On second listen I was starting to get very excited indeed - this is complex, beautiful music. I feel that this album improves as it goes along - the first tracks are good but the middle section is amazing. I suspect I will be listening to this - and hearing new things within the music - for a very long time.

I think I have come to the conclusion that others have expressed, including you effectively: that this album is 'a grower'. Not that I believe it is the equal of Symmetry for sheer emotional impact (were you at Reading last year? Incredible..); but there's a lot that's interesting in there, if some of it ain't the very best they've done. But IT'S MUSE! As a result there is a magic inherent, even in the tracks I am not so keen on, God bless them boys....
