Seriously though, isn't the intro of Aftermath just One's intro slowed down? It was driving me crazy. Clearly Muse picked something up from touring with U2 (Big Freeze is another example).

Hahaha, it's like One and a shitty Pink Floyd cover band had an abortion.

The worst part of all of it is that if they dropped the 'concept' and the awful lyrics, they have the bones of an enjoyable, though admittedly brainless, rocker of an album.

What's with the fucking whistling in The Globalist? It's not the Kill Bill soundtrack

I think Reapers, The Handler and The Globalist are pretty fucking good. Aftermath is nice as well. Dead Inside is a fun single. Revolt was absolutely horrendous.

Yeah it's clearly a modern Muse album, with a few more good songs than normal. I just block out the lyrics entirely.

Dead Inside gave me hope when I heard it on the radio - thought it was interesting, modern, but still rocking. Then I read the words. Then I heard the other songs.

The part where they actually say dead inside is a low point of a very, very low album.

They've gone past Queen-level absurdity to pure cringe.

I have never heard a Muse album in full but the hatred has got me keen for this. I don't like them anyway so could be fun.

If it's just for laughs, I'd recommend The 2nd Law. That one is truly terrible.

Oh my god we need to have a listening party for this. Just when you think Muse can't get any worse, they do on this album. Liking this album is possibly a sign of brain damage.

Jesus that's an awful fucking song.

But at least it's one song, not just a whole goddamn album of drone-drone DRONE drone DROOOONES.

I wonder what Drones is about? Too subtle.

Muse really have a knack for making the most ridiculous songs. If you'd make a top 10 of the most ridiculous songs of the past ten years, Muse would have like five songs in it. United States of Eurasia, Unsustainable....
