Customer Reviews

Many styles, many influences, AND they make it work!

MUSE keeps getting better. You can see that their sound is maturing, as they broaden their musical palette to include the likes of Midge Ure's Ultravox ("Follow Me", with an 'Alarm'-inspired coda), Radiohead (a 'Kid A' - influenced "Animals" and an 'OK Computer' homage in "Save Me" - with a bit of 'Tears for Fears' mixed in). There's also a 'Foo Fighters' inspired "Liquid State", while "Big Freeze" conjures up some U2 and Keene. Of course, the more recent MUSE would not be the same without its operatic side, and they deliver with the 'Queen'-like "Explorers" ("Dreamers' Ball"), and "Survival".

All in all, MUSE offers up a musical experience for lovers of new wave, operatic rock and psychedelia, appealing to both the dreamer and the critical thinker.

Too much jammed into everything

You can definitely hear a Queen influence in most of these songs. Unfortunately, that's the only thing I liked about this album. Every song sounds cramped because they tried to go over the top with this album.


I've been waiting a lot for this album, and it makes me sad to say that but The 2nd Law really dissapointed me. I rated it 2 stars not because I dont like Muse, at opposite, I love them, but I almost dont found anything from the Muse that I like in this album, and actually, I love every Muse albums but that one. Neither can I see any progression in their style, they dont push forward the style from The Resistance, they completly made something new. For me, that's what I call change, and we don't always change for the best. In my opinion, if you dont know Muse very much and you want to buy a CD from them, The 2nd Law should be the last on your list...
