Matt Bellamy has done a pre-Glasto interview with The Daily Telegraph newspaper: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/art...hing-else-goi/

Talks about stripping down for the festivals, introversion, the idea that the rock band is dying, and a bit more else.

Also includes a top 10 songs feature: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/wha...-top-10-songs/

So Muse are not only saving the album format, but rock music altogether?

But yeah, pretty nice interview.

I know you're joking, but it sounded like he's more admitting the band was a bit "old fashioned" even as it got started; and I like how he correlated guitar rock with his same "humanity and technology" theme from the album, really.
Gives another layer of the ideas of losing something important to you.

It should also end this odd "eyes closed" argument I'm still for some reason in...

From my interpretation, I would say more that Matt thinks the concept of the conventional guitar-bass-drums rock music band is kinda dying out, but the mentality will survive. But its all ideas in Matt's head - maybe rock bands and albums will carry on, and maybe they'll have to adapt a bit more.

Saying that, I remember an NME article in 2010 with people in Biffy Clyro and Foals saying the same things.

Traditional rock's been dead or dying for quite a while. It just held out longer in some areas than others.
I mean, of course it's morphed into different styles, but that's exactly what he says.

And it's taken a real hit by EDM/dance style pop, R&B, etc. and is barely, and rarely, mainstream.
It's pretty amazing Muse is still able to be as big as they are, doing what they do, tbh.
It's going to cripple their ability to play places like the US, in the future, though.

As a chart thing its the same over here. I guess its why Wolf Alice and Royal Blood (and possibly Catfish and the Bottlemen, but as Oasis broke up and Arctic Monkeys/Kasabian aren't doing anything atm, that crowd needed something like that) getting top 2 debut albums in the UK was a big surprise. Chart radio is mainly full of that stuff - 7 Years by Lukas Graham is wank but was number one for several years, and so is the Drake song called One Dance that has been number one here for 10 weeks, even edging out the much catchier Timberlake "Can't Stop The Feeling" tune.

Maybe it is because the only people who buy singles anymore are kids who are more ready to like this sort of stuff, I guess. Certainly, all the singles in Absolution charted in the top 20 - and Stockholm Syndrome would've been #2 if downloads counted in 2003. Since Neutron Star Collision, none has reached the top 20, and loads of other rock bands have struggled too.

It's just the natural progression of things.
Probably why I latched on to Muse in the first place; they represented the best parts of a genre that was already fading, and incorporated enough different things that they didn't feel like a stale old copy of bygone years. They sort of embodied how I'd always wanted rock music to be, and eschewed the screaming, boring machismo that dominated the genre here for so long.
Although, I think rock was still big in Europe when they came out, no? Thus the popularity differences.

Honestly, there's a lot in that article that probably speaks to why I was so strongly attached to them.

Muse's UK breakthrough was 2001. I'd say 2000's indie was the last real time a form of rock dominated the charts here, and even then in a more dance-inflected variant than what it was in the 90s, but since the talk of "landfill indie" and Scouting for Girls sinking the genre in 2008/09, its struggled to reach the same heights, even if a few buck the trend.
