I wonder how native speakers of English deal with the lyrics sometimes. As a non-native speaker I find it easy to just ignore how bad certain lines sound (not the Rio one though), so maybe that makes Muse more easily enjoyable for us.

日本人ですか?

I wonder how many Japanese and Korean songs I'm understanding while blissfully ignorant of the lyrics. I like Dir en grey a lot but apparently their lyrics are very divisive.

I've grown to really like them as songs. Redemption too is a very emotional piece on what is a rather cold album. But I wouldn't want the entire album like that since there was some cool stuff like Undisclosed I'd still want them to explore.

I'm not. I just study in Tokyo, sorry to disappoint you.

Add to the list of people I know who have been to Japan, which is somehow longer than the amount of people I know that haven't.

Random off topic but I just need to share how strange that is.

The first half of Origin is their most cohesive work yet and the rest isn't half bad either.

Am I really the only one who digs T2L? Like, again, it's far from the best stuff they've done but it's not complete garbage like people seem to say.

Yes, you're the only person who likes The 2nd Law. No other fans of it out there.

English isn't my native language and it was still impossible for me to deal with the lyrics on Drones.

No, don't worry. I dig it, too. I'm very far from being a raging fan of it, bit I think it's bashed more then it deserves, considering it has a good bunch of underrated songs, like Explorers or Big Freeze.

They are probably my two least favourite album tracks across their entire discography.

They're better than Psycho, IMO. Explorers has quite of a "magic" atmosphere despite of the hamfisted lyrics; Big Freeze has a lot of sway and energy for being a pop-rock song, and the lyrics aren't bad as many make them to be.

"Clouds of stellar gas" would be much better in fact, but c'mon, at least we know he isn't talking about... "beef".
