Muse's New Album

...is not so good.

Very disappointing.

Outside of the amazing "Unnatural Selection" and "Exogenesis", everything that made Muse unique is...gone.

Odd. It was as if the album was made directly for people who heard Supermassive Black Hole in Twilight and liked the funky style. I mean, where's the falsetto ("New Born") or even the screams (think "Hyper Music"). Maybe if Muse's heavier side showed up like "Assassin" or "Plug In Baby" I'd be more satisfied. But it's lackluster.

"Undisclosed Desires" is like a lost Justin Timberlake song and "I Belong to You" is like Maroon 5. Seriously, what is going on Bellamy's head. This is the most commercial album I've heard in a while.

Full review coming soon.
