For the record, Muse have now received a total of seven GRAMMY Award nominations, including three for Best Rock Album, three for Best Rock Song and one for Best Rock Performance since 2011.

Matt provides insight about the songwriting process behind Drones and prior studio albums in an interview conducted with CCTV earlier this year when they toured mainland China:

"It's both looking internally, your own life & your own experiences, and how you relate to the rest of the world and the people around you. Obviously those things can make you think about things outside your life. So there's some context putting yourself in the current world. And I think that the album ended up having this sort of dual narratives going on at the same time. The songs can be interpreted as being either political, or either self-expressive, about personal lives. I deliberately write the songs to be mixed message in that way. They can be interpreted in two ways," singer Matt Bellamy said.

"You can not be too confident about the impact or anything like that... But I guess music, obviously, is bringing people together to experience something, which is - you know they're physically in the same space together so they feel each other. That's something a little different I guess, to help people live their lives, mainly. And also listening to music it's a method of hearing and feeling somebody else's feelings in a slightly deeper way maybe than it's possible for some other ways. For me anyway, I like that. Music has always been a very powerful method to understand the feeling of somebody else's, both the feelings of somebody from a different time as well. So I guess in that way music is slightly unique form of communication compared to modern technology methods of communicating," Bellamy said.

'This is not the first time that Muse have tackled weighty social or political issues.'

why am i getting the vibe that this seems like a token nomination?

hope i'm wrong and they come out on top, but...

another grammy in the stable would be nice, tho.

as a non sequitur, the capitalization of GRAMMY has always rubbed me the wrong way.

EDIT: after having listened to all of the albums nominated in this category -- out of this particular lot, if i had a vote, i think i'd give muse the win. some of the other nominees' work is actually abysmal...

Final GRAMMY ballots due today 15 January 2016:

Muse is favoured to win with a 60% chance according to the nine 'experts' polled at Goldderby.com. Six of them selected Drones while two picked James Bay to win the award. They correctly picked Beck to win Best Rock Album last year.

"In a year with less competition, Death Cab for Cutie might have a chance, but this one will come down to Muse versus James Bay. Bay has the momentum and the buzz, but we suspect the Recording Academy will go with the more established name and give Muse their second win for Best Rock Album."

http://m.axs.com/2016-grammy-awards-...analysis-74969

The writer mistakenly said Bay is up for Album of the Year. He is nominated for Best New Artist, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album. Bay has been already been announced as a performer but that was expected since most nominees for Best New Artist are featured on the show either in a solo performance or in a collaboration with other artists.

I will post more predictions in the next two weeks before the ceremony takes place on 15 February. Some of the categories including Best Rock Album could be too close to call and I also expect a few surprises.

Updated Goldderby.com predictions:

Muse has a 59% chance of winning - 8 out of 13 experts/editors picked Drones while 4 selected James Bay's Chaos and the Calm.

http://www.goldderby.com/odds/index/391/

Two more GRAMMY Pundit Predictions from Slant and HDD/Grein:

"Who Will Win: Muse"

https://www.slantnews.com/story/2015...l-actually-win

"James Bay is the front-runner."

"James Bay could win Rock Album. His Chaos and the Calm is excellent, but its simply not a rock album. So why is it in this category, competing with the likes of Slipknot? Why is he not in Alternative or Pop? Is it so he could win without having to compete head-to-head against Alabama Shakes in Alternative or Taylor in Pop? Not that we wont be happy to see him take home a statue, but put his music where it belongs and let it compete with his peers. It should be important to all of us that the Grammy committees do the right thing."

http://www.billboard.com/articles/ne...ights-opinions

"There's one part of the Grammy process that I don't think most people know about. In each category, the voters select 15 albums or songs to be nominated. Then there are committees for each genre, and those committees narrow those 15 nominees down to five. Which I think is wrong, and I'm on a committee! On top of that, the committee can actually replace two of those five records that people actually voted for with records that weren't even in the initial top 15. My committee had, like, 15 people -- producers, managers, etc. -- and everyone had their own agenda. Myself included! In my category, at least one act that wasn't in the top 15 ended up with a Grammy nomination."

Just like Drones, maybe? It hasn't exactly received universal acclaim...

It's different places doing the odds, but James Bay has been getting a lot more press, and might be the more "proper" artist in the category for a lot of the voters, from what I've read.

My brain seriously hurts to see something like James Bay and Slipknot in the same category. I mean what the actual fuck?

I guess it proves "rock" isn't much of a thing here anymore, if that's what they muster up for their "best of" list, and don't think we need more diverse categories.
