I'm really trying to like Propaganda, and I do - a bit. I know he's going for the Prince - Kiss style but if he held back the breathiness and went for head voice at some points it would be a far greater song, I think.

First listen.
This album is much better than I expected. I cried listening to Algorithm and The Void. Propaganda was a nice surprise because it sounds like Kiss from Prince and that is Amazing for me.
I will post my ranking latee.
Very very happy with Simulation Theory.

What a weird fucking album.

Some class songs in there like The Dark Side, Pressure or The Void, and others i would hardly qualify as music such as Propaganda or Get Up and Fight.

The Dark Side's alternate reality version is Radiohead but better. Both version are a 10/10.

Preordered 31st August - not received

Apologies if wrong thread - new to this - preordered cd 31st August - got confirmation - no RAH presale code - no cd arriving today - thankfully got Spotify so listening and liking - worried that cd won't turn up - extremely worried that no presale code for British tour will be sent to me which would screw up my Christmas present. What should I do - panicking at present.

Not sure what happened with your pre-sale code but it’s pretty common to not get your preorder on release day, unfortunately. Just how it goes with Muse albums, my T2L boxset was at least a week late iirc (as with a lot of people) and I’m still waiting on my super deluxe edition for ST.

Didn't expect I'd be here in 2018 and say "the new Muse album is good actually" but here we are

The only song I didn't care for was Get Up and Fight, but other than that this is probably their most confident album in a good while that plays to all of the band's over-the-top, cheesy strengths. This is definitely their best post-BHAR album.

I think it’s hit me after day 2 that while I like most of these songs, I wouldn’t like them if it wasn’t Muse. Because majority of it isn’t really the kind of music I’d listen to outside of Muse and definitely not the type of music I started liking Muse for.

Apart from Algorithm, Blockades and The Void.

Received my Deluxe Edition and I'm just done with my first listen-through.

Will take some time to process.

One thing I know for sure though: Get Up And Fight must be the worst song they've written to this day.
Seriously, it's terrible.

(and when I say so I obviously mean the song itself, melody, structure, production -- not what it's about)

I can sort of feel this. I wouldn't say I wouldn't like the songs though, I just wouldn't give them the listen. Many of these songs are the kind of stuff that I like but never bother diving into if it involves having to take in a lot of new bands.
