Micro Cuts is insane

I like it but I can easily see why someone wouldn't

Digging: Ted Nugent - Shutup&jam!

Space dementia is intense and the instrumentation of new born is fantastic.

Yeah first half is pretty good as far as trashy alternative rock/metal goes, but god damn it trails off with Micro Cuts (painful) and two flamenco-flavoured tracks in a row and then a cover song and then that breathless, overblown closer Megalomania... and I was led to believe this album was "flawless."

Digging: Casualties of Cool - Casualties of Cool

It's Muse; of course it's not flawless
Citizen Erased is still the best song ever though

Digging: Envy - A Dead Sinking Story

I can't find anything about Megalomania I like, epic for epic's sake

epic for epic's sake


I'm pretty sure that that's because it's a Muse song, but because there's nothing to like

I just think (back in the day at least) Muse had some great damn ideas but never really knew how to utilise them, makes you wish these songs were written and performed by a different band

Holy SHIT, that makes so much sense now I think about it, especially on this album. The only thing I would add is that on Absolution they got quite a few of those ideas right (they got some right here too)

Yeah there were some examples of them getting it right (I think the best examples are actually on Black Holes), but gat damn another band could've put riffs like Citizen Erased and New Born to better use

Hmmm...Black Holes has Knights of Cydonia and Exo-Politics I spose, and Citizen Erased and New Born rule face imo (easily the best here), but tbh persuading Matt Bellamy's ego to channel his ideas through another band is a dead cause

Citizen Erased starts off amazing (and I mean AMAZING) but I hate where they go with it, soppy quiet sections and grating falsetto argh

They have some amazing prog and rock ideas, but they're always done through a Freddie Mercury lens and that totally ruins it for me
