I dunno about the mojo bit. Overall it seems very tame. Reminds me of how I felt about The Resistance compared to the hype, actually.

Constantly being a dickhead seems like a pretty good reason to me, but I digress.

Reapers keeps getting better with every listen. It's the most gonzo thing they've done in ages.

Globalist seems rather jumbled. Like bits of three songs stitched together. As for the title track, it's quite pretty but I don't think it really achieves anything.

Overall, the album's playing it very safe indeed, and I can't begin to take the concept seriously.

The concept is teenage bedroom scribblings level nonsense .

But the balls out rock moments on the album are a lot of fun, far more fun than anything on TR or T2L.

I just wish those moments didn't feel so reined in.

Not sure I agree. Reapers is pretty full on, The Handler is fairly spectacular, etc. Which bits do you think feel limp?

Off the back of the last two albums, it feels much fresher to me.

Well, not so much limp as I wanted more fire and less gloss. Reapers has rather goofy vocals up front and I can't help but think that breakdown was much more effective on Freedom, where everything in the song built to that climax. More ballads than were necessary.

His vocals only work with these kind of lyrics. "Better" lyrics would make his falsetto effectively worse. That's my theory at least.

Muse lyrics were always an afterthought, never the driving creative force behind songs.
I don't really care anymore.

That is true, but in the past, when the lyrics were more abstract, they could work. I still love Drones, it's my third favorite album by them, but the lyrics are the weakest part of the album. I don't know what you mean about the falsetto, but whatever.

I was hoping for a grittier, less Mercury-Bonoish style anyway.

I don't cringe at much of the stuff on the first four albums- I can let pretty much all of it slide.
