The New Muse Album

Anyone heard any of it, and what do you guys think of the new single (released next week, I think) "Supermassive Black Hole".

I quite like it, Bellamy's gone way overboard on the falsetto, but the more I listen to it, the more I like it..... catchy.

It has leaked and it is great

The leak is not the greatest quality mind...certainly quite listenable though.

Take a Bow, City of Delusion, Invincible, Map of the Problematique are all favourites so far.

Hoodoo is quite different, has a good bit of Spanish guitar.

After hearing the single, and seeing the video, I'm not sure what to think, but I'm fully into giving the album all the chance possible.

I love SMBH but I reckon the rest of the album is better and quite different from Supermassive.

July 3 in the UK. July 11 in the US.

BTW, Supermassive Black Hole will not be the first single in the US, it will be Knights of Cydonia. Both songs are amazing, so whatever. I had thought they were doing that because Supermassive Black Hole is so weird, but I certainly wouldn't consider Knights of Cydonia to be normal.

Maybe when they tour with this one, I won't have to miss them because it's a school night.

How's the quality on a scale from 1 to 10? I might just wait until I have the real thing in my possession. Not that I'm an audiophile or anything

If 10 is crystal clear studio quality, 5 is a normal audience bootleg, and 1 is clips of U2 songs recorded by talkative Spanish fans in Eze, I'd say it's about a 7-8. The leak I've downloaded is nothing special, not as clear or crisp as I'd like even though the MP3s are 320kbps, but still satisfactorily listenable.

How much of this is the actual production and how much is an imperfect rip, I'm not sure.

Somebody mentioned the rip had been equalised and was in mono...a better rip is bound to be out soonish though.

I teach elementary school, and if I'm gone due to staying out too late, I usually have to reteach everything when I get back. I can't effectively teach tired, so I like to only miss school for U2 or Bruce (and the occasional Rolling Stones show).

I have a friend who gives me an endless hard time about it. She thinks I should just suck it up.
