:Black Holes and Revelations
It happens again, the new Muse's album can be found on the web.
I'll drop some fresh impressions from the first listening.
I'll compare the songs sounds to other artists, it's the same -orrible- thing journalists does, but so it goes...so,excuse me.Take a bow:
absolutely mad Queen
-style intro song.Starlight:
don't like it, as I already said there's too much Coldplay
pop-style into this song.Supermassive Black Holes:
the song everyone loves/hates, crazy dance
, heavy electronic experiment...Map of the problematique:
too much electronic also in this one, kind of Depeche Mode
inspiration, little more melodicSoldier's Poem:
kind of sweet song recalling Ave Maria and with Queen-style (again!) choruses, the Unintended of this album, obviously with different lyrics and meanings...Invincible:
another sweet song, with a marching drum line and simple bass line...more rythm towards the end of the song, but still too calm for my flavours..Assassin:
Kind of Supercar/S.O.A.D. heavy intro but nothing more...more noise (finally!) and distortions than the other songs, but it doesn't impress me much...this is the song the played during the last US tour under the name of Pee Candle.Exo-Politics:
another song the played during the US tour, this song is finally something more close to the classic Muse style - anyway the live version was more powerful...City of delusion:
whoa, very great song, violins, trumpets, spanish & distortend guitars, passion and rage...this song got everything! 10 out of 10!HooDoo:
spanish guitar intro, but another sugar-sweet song ;-/ (ok, got a powerful melodic interlude, but nothing more...)Knights of Cydonia:
this one is completely insane, it worths 10 out of 10...After the first listening
In my opinion this album a sort-of concept album.
I really don't know where Muse want to go (musically speaking).
I really don't like this album, too melodic, too sweet apart from two songs.
I repeat this are only fresh impressions from the very first listening.
My opinion could change.
But with the same likeliness could remain the same.
Now I'll go to bed, listening it another couple of time.
