Anyways, Break it To Me is already starting to grow on me, I really like the chorus and the solo! Still one of the weirdest Muse songs ever.
I definitely think I remember you! That was a long 6 hours, but totally worth it.

This exactly. Resistance might still slightly edge it for me, on account of MK and Exogenesis.

One of the things I’m most happy about on this album, how it’s bookended:

- best opener since TAB and 4th best opener overall
- best closer since Meg and 3rd best closer overall
- possibly 2nd best combined bookend, just behind New Born and Meg

And they even sound weirdly linked, despite no direct lyrical ties. One can easily flow right out of the other and restart the album again. So satisfying, really makes the album feel like an even tighter package.

Looking forward to this one. Is it just Matt and a piano throughout?

They definitely share some vocal melodies imo.

Caved. Initial thoughts based on one listen:

Algorithm - the blend of beats, bleeps, strings and piano is beautiful. The strings are some of Muse's finest to date. Not QUITE as epic as I expected, but those huge drum beats at the stand and the 90-100-sec instrumental intro is going to be insane live. 13/10

Propaganda - finally, the pop song Muse have been trying to write for 12 years. This is just about the most brilliantly brash thing they've ever done. It's a masterpiece. It's every bit as ludicrous as I hoped. 17/10.

Break It To Me - as above, the kind of pop Muse have been trying to get right for ages. Very RATM the riff, very very VERY Prince the rest of it. Far more so than Propaganda. I totally get the shuffly Linkin Park vibe people were referencing too. 18/10

Get Up And Fight - what even is this? -57/10

Blockades - sounds like Muse covering Octavarium era Dream Theater, who were in turn, at that time, were trying to cover Absolution era Muse. It doesn't really come together as a cohesive track and it doesn't really go anywhere. Blegh. 5/10

The Void - NIN. Strings. Wubbity wub wub wubbage. WRROOOOOOOONNNGGG. 16/10

I still haven't listened. May as well just wait now.

I will say after reading these comments over the last 12 hours the hype levels have trebled though. Resisting it is tough.
