it's too different from the rest of their art, i'd expect it from an electronic group, not Muse

Actually it looks a lot like their singles/B-side album covers, so I'd expect it from Muse

Invincible is my favorite: http://dic.academic.ru/pictures/enwiki/73/Invincible_cover.jpg
(not saying it looks like this one)

Record will be hyped by UK mainstream listeners convinced they're listening to the dawn of a new musical age complete with the most technical instrumentation known to man.

Record will be 4 at best with some good songs and some very pretentious structures.

Muse will once again be touted as the world's best rock band by the UK media, I will get angry and go cry in a corner because they haven't done anything wholly worthwhile since Absolution.

Looks great, if you don't like the first two songs released, just listen for Unnatural Selection (heavy rock song with solos ala OoS) and the symphony off of the album and you will be pleased.

It's a good thing you know all of this ahead of time. Anyways, album art rules, and people continue to hate on Muse for some unknown reason.

^Because sputnik loves to hate what's popular. This album cover art is amazing though. 2009 has produced some sweet album art so far.

Lol. I'm obviously just making educated guesses based on the ridiculous leak campaign of USoE, the very cool album art, the regular reaction of the UK media and public to Muse albums, the quality and feel of the songs I've heard so far, and my own instinct.

I like Muse, I just hate the way they're portrayed by the media and the way their last album spawned loads of retards saying things like omg knights of cydonia is probably the longest song ever but i love it!!111eleventy.

I have a feeling a lot of people who don't like Uprising or USoE will not like Undisclosed Desires either because Matt doesn't play guitar or piano in the song and the only instruments are drum machines, slap bass, and "Timbaland inspired" vocals. This album should be interesting to listen to from start to end.

What I don't get is why people are complaining about the album when we only have two songs to go by. It would be like judging OoS off of just Feeling Good and Screenager, you just can't.

That fact is this album starts with an British Prog Pop song, and then ends with a supposedly chaotic and off the wall symphony. And all we have for a clue between is USoE, which was a bit of a comedic light hearted approach to a more serious problem, that being the world. So in a sense, we really know nothing about the album, where it goes, what happens. So relax, wait for the album as a whole, and stop being so upset this isn't Hysteria part 2 or Stockholm Resistance. Do not write off Muse, because I highly doubt they will disappoint.

Ugh I'm not a fan. I don't like anything from this new album so far

BHaR has had the coolest album art so far in my opinion, but they've all been good.

Except this.

...no

This is the best album art they've done so far. Their new single isn't that good... maybe it will grow in time. Still, I think the album will be awesome.

They really haven't had any bad album art. I would take this one over Showbiz.

As far as album art goes, without considering singles, b-sides, live DVDs:

OoS > BHaR > Absolution > The Resistance > Showbiz
