Exclamation The 2nd Law Album Reviews (Online/Offline)

Not sure if there is a thread for the upcoming reviews in the media. Didn´t found one, if there is, please move it in to this section.

However,i found a few reviews of blogs & webzines. Some of them are in german, others in english. No Major Media included yet.

The Muse in the Media section is the correct area for this thread.

Thanks for gathering those reviews.

The sputnik album review was pretty poorly written. Even if you don't like the music it should be obvious that Matt is singing in tune. Seems more like he just dislikes Muse and isn't coming to it from an impartial angle.

Despite the pitchforks of the world (have they actually done a review yet?), it looks like the album has been mostly well received.

I'm looking forward to watch Anthony Fantano's review, next week.

It's Sputnikmusic. What did you expect? They don't like the Muse's style / change of style and their Mainstream success. That results in very obvious trolls.

Yeah, I didn't even bother clicking that one. Sputnik can suck it.

I must say all these reviews are bloody horrible.

Comparisons left and right, I know Muse might sound like Queen or U2 at times, but it gets annoying when the authors make comparisons of every track.

To be fair, the influences on this album aren't subtle. Not even a little bit. Some bits/songs are just straightup ripoffs.

i think "big freeze" sound better than any U2 song of the last two albums. but it is still a rip off from matts vocals to the guitarr riff from the edge. so there is a difference if you get influenced by a band or you rip off their trademark sound.
