CD REVIEW! Muse - The 2nd Law

Muse's 6th album is a mix pot of everything thrown in to create a unique sci-fi soundtrack set on a dub-step planet. As Rolling Stone Magazine put it so perfectly: "The album is their most expansive and varied yet, filling out a go-to mix of Queen boom and Radiohead gloom with disco Bowie, Eighties U2, metal, dub step and enough strings to support a suspension bridge – then wrapping this distinctly English prog-rock crazy quilt around a distinctly English prog-rock theme." The best song on this CD is Madness - it's set to an icy cool bass line with a chorus and guitar bits that make you think of Queen's I Want To Break Free and A Kind Of Magic. But when you get to the track Unsustainable, your musical senses are shot to outer space with guitar and dub step debris floating around. In a nutshell, it's a great released and huge experiment for the band, but they succeed. Experience the weird-yet-genius sounds of Unsustainable, HERE!
