3 listens and its started to settle and flow a bit better. I think the drastic difference in familiarity of the pre-album singles and the new songs threw off the flow a bit for me. Honestly, I enjoy every song. Some far more than others, but I enjoyed DD from first listen all those months ago and I think I still stand by that. Its catchy and pleasant, and has a bit of power. TC actually rocks in context of the album. GUAF, while not as ecstatic as Revolt, is a song I thouroughly enjoy for the same reasons. Every other song is gold though. I loved Drones to death, but I dunno, this might top it.

Now will it top OoS? Idk about that.

No way. It's a good, probably even great album but it's not in OoS territory. Plus it's kinda hard to compare the two being that they're so different. Don't get me wrong though I really like ST

I'm already confident that I will be having repeat listens of TDS, The Void, Blockades and Algorithm 3 or 4 years down the line.

Those 4 collectively are stronger than my favourite four songs off any of the previous 3 albums.

Bravo Muse. Bloody love this new record. As others have pointed out, it's a much more complete effort than the past couple of records. Love the progression, the theme, the tunes, and just the general 'Don't Give a Fuck' attitude to try something different. They've earnt the right to be able to do it.

'Get Up & Fight' is fucking great but totally understand why some (many) wouldn't like it. That outro vocal is just insane.

Big props from me. Might even try and snag a ticket for London Stadium now having sworn not to do another big tour show after Drones at The O2*

*Nothing against that tour BTW.

I'm pretty surprised. The "user review" sites are completely bashing the album (unsurprised because it's kinda fashionable to bash Muse on those without even listening) but the critical reviews are pretty damn high so far. I expected the opposite.

I'm rather negatively surprised at how many said "fans" on FB are bashing it, mainly because it's not rock enough.
This fanbase, for goodness sake...

Ehh, those guys aren't ever happy, FB isn't a good gauge.

I find it interesting that the record is dividing some of the more hardcore fanbase. With T2L and drones, sure there were differences in how people felt about certain songs (such as revolt and similar dividing tunes) but overall I feel like the community harbored a general line of thinkng about those albums. The general consensus being "T2L has fun bits but overall its a mess" and "Drones has good highs but falls flat in too many places".


With ST theres a substantial portion of the board reacting very positively, but ive also observed hardcore fans in other groups that are very entrenched on the guitar sound of early Muse and other contemporaries of theirs, who cant digest any of this. It seems to me as its the first time in a while where theres a substantial divide amongst fans of the bands early work.


I personally love it. After Dig Down and SH i was prepared to not be a fan. How wrong I was... In the context of the album, even SH works. The hell?

I actually see the hardcore fans being more positive on here and reddit. I wouldn't consider "WE NEED GUITAR" fans being hardcore.

True, the board and reddit are actually very positive. Im refering more to personal experience with groups of people who have been following the band since Absolution/Black Holes.
