When I first heard these songs, it was live at Doncaster Dome in November last year. I was eager to see what direction Muse had taken in their new material, and it seems they've headed off into deeper, heavier places. Deadstar especially, with its pounding intensity owes more to metal than classic guitar rock. It was said that Muse have tried to capture the live atmosphere of their songs, and it looks a lot more rough round the edges, as if it were live.
In Your World begins with a gentle rippling piano then bursts into a filthy guitar sound (think of the riff in Newborn) and then it all begins. The song is impeccably structured, and it has you shaking your head in disbelief at the ridiculous amount of talent this band has.
I bought the second disc with the b-side cover 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You'. I was intrigued to see what Muse had done with this kind of song, but I needn't have had any qualms as it's another superb adjustment into Muse's style, and surprisingly, it works very well. And after listening to a friend's CD1 I was equally impressed with Futurism, which has since become my favourite b-side. Another song which keeps in mind the latest switch of style. Muse are superb, and I sincerely hope their material continues to deliver as well as these new songs do.
In conclusion, the Dead Star/In Your World EP is a worthy buy, which would be a worthy addition to anybody's music collection.
To make this spectacular release even better, they have included on cd1 the B-side "Futurism" and as the name implies, is a futuristic sound by Muse. Though almost eerie and shocking, it is excellent, though does not have the greatness or charisma of the best singles by muse. The first CD is made complete by the video for dead star, which is another masterpiece.
Starting with a calm ambient piano introduction, In Your World bursts into an excellent, electric song, with a great beat and brilliant bass line. Though quite repetitive throughout, the short but sweet song is quite obviously a new side of muse, a rock side. The extra track on the second cd, is "cant't take my eys off you" a cover, though still a palpable muse version, made unique by the variance of tones, pitches and feelings poured into the song by Bellamy.
Overall an exquisite collection of high class songs from muse, not to be missed.
