Listened to it for the first time last night, it's just offensively dull. That's all. It's like a computerised Muse cliché generator.

I'm old enough to remember when Muse got compared to Radiohead. Frankly I'm old enough to remember when Coldplay got compared to Radiohead. Man, those were the days.

Good days or he time when people were running out of ideas about comparison?

Muse definitely disappointed me. I remember thinking that they would become one of my favorite bands back in like 03'ish. But wow. Nose dive. Too bad.

Well I also remember when reviewers compared Radiohead to U2 and Pearl Jam, so, yeah. Probably.

Reapers is their best song since Knights of Cydonia. Sounds like they had a lot of recording it.

I once listened to Reaper but ended up listening Freedom by RATM because it was infinitely better

Just listened to Thought Contagion. It sounds more like Coldplay mating with Imagine Dragons.

I guess I can't be surprised after Dig Down. I was unimpressed with the Thriller attempt. But at least we now know what happened to Bono's Ultraviolet jacket after 360. I'll sleep better at night, despite my current inexplicable insomnia.

Holy shit, that was bad. It’s sad to see the acceleration of their drop off. I’m trying to think if any other band’s discography dropped in quality so quickly.

It's past the point of self parody now, it's just a 'build your own Muse song' pack which gets done to death. Sad!

I actually liked Drones better than The 2nd Law.

Idk if Dig Down is meant to be on the new album, or if Thought Contagion even is. I read that they don't intend to release a new album until perhaps next year, but will be dropping singles between now and then.

But yeah, this just feels like a splice of shitty pop. They're very talented musicians, but they're just trying too hard to be quirky here.
