Silence in the Snow
Good album but nothing really stands out, I got to about track 6 or 7 before I checked the track-list as I thought I was still on the 1st or 2nd track. If they can get a bit more of an identity injected into this sound and try some cool ideas with a track or two the follow up to this could be great.
Bring Me the Horizon
That's the Spirit
It's grown on me but it's still a pretty bad album considering their previous album was pretty damn good. There are some tracks here that are great and they are mainly the tracks that were likely Sempiternal B-sides like 'Happy Song' and 'Avalanche', but the rest is just rock radio garbage that I can listen to in short bursts but this record is not a patch on the previous effort.
Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack U
Diplo brings Skrillex back to his roots somewhat and it makes for an enjoyable record.. It's not the best thing ever, but it's certainly not the worst either.
Muse show on this album where their real problem lies and that is in not knowing when to stop. This album could be up there with the best records of their career but it isn't because many songs fall short due to poor decisions in the studio. 'Dead Inside' a good track ruined by a pointless hook. 'Reapers' closing riff killed by repeat shouts of "Here Come The Drones". 'Psycho' choosing not to leave the interlude as just that and weaving it into the track itself. The best tracks on 'Drones' are the ones where Muse believe in their ability to craft a damn good rock song 'Mercy', 'The Handler', '[JFK]/Defector' and 'The Globalist'. All of those
