The 2nd Law [Explicit] (MP3 Music)

5.0 out of 5 stars
First of all, this review is coming from a person who quit the biggest radio station there is in Austin, TX because they wouldn't play Muse, in 1999. That was the era of Muscle Museum. The general manager there said Muse was obviously one of the best bands ever, but it was too progressive and no one would understand them. I told him I obviously understand them, as do others, and how will anyone ever get a chance to expand if not exposed to such things as have the potential to do it? What? Are we ONLY catering to the bottom of the barrel now, or what? And we wonder why so much of society is slipping its tethers and moors, or never had any to begin with? In addition he told me then that while he feared losing the likes of me if he was honest with me, the music industry was about money, not music, and Muse wasn't a good risk from a mass appreciation level.

I've said in other reviews that I kind of don't like reviewing music, since a) tastes are very personal, and b) I don't even have the right vocabulary (I'm so much NOT a musical person). On top of that I'm 40-something so my habits just don't mesh with the new short-attention-span track-at-a-time billion MP3 generation mentality...I still like to listen to *albums* all the way through.My first exposure to Muse was their Resistance album, which I've reviewed as good but sort of workmanlike with nice range of styles and tempos and classical influence, most specifically Queen. That lead me to some discussions with another Amazon reviewer and a purchase of Absolution (which I didn't like as much - the production seemed muddy and the vocals overly electronically processed), Black Holes and Revelations (which I liked a lot - I'm a sucker for SF themed rock), and this album.Where to start?
