For those of you not wanting to buy the album, here's a link to where it's been leaked;

I'm so very tempted to download it, but I'm gonna wait 'til it comes out and buy it then

Bad karma for encouraging us to download instead of buy.

I have now heard five streaming songs (feel less guilty when it is just streaming):

Take a Bow
Starlight
Supermassive Black Hole
Exo-Politics
Knights of Cydonia

Unless the other 6 songs suck, this album is gonna be

Well, after listening to the album, I'm disappointed. Nothing at all stood out to me as excellent, and some of it was simply bad.

Glad I hadn't got my hopes up or anything.

Yes. Wasn't very taken by it on the first listen, especially given the way I've seen it hyped.

Ah well, at least I can still go back and enjoy songs like Hysteria and Stockholm Syndrome.

Is it really that bad? I like the songs I've heard, but I'm hanging on 'til it comes out rather than downloading (it makes me feel like a better fan ).....

How would you rate it in comparison with their other albums?

^I think it is pretty good, wouldn't say it was as good as the last two though, but still great listening...Take A Bow, City of Delusion, Map of the Problematique and Hoodoo are all personal favourites as well as Starlight.

I wouldn't say it's bad; rather, I think it's best described as mediocre and average. I expected better from Muse, and I don't think this is as good as what's come before.

By the way, the live performance they did recently of Map Of The Problematique was way better than the studio version.

^ Oh, right... well, mediocre is better than bad... and I see that LJT thinks it's alright, so I guess I'm gonna have to wait and see....

Can't wait 'til it's released

I could do Phoenix between the Raconteurs and Gnarls Barkley.
