Back in the day, when this place was crawling with forums and chats about random acts of music, we used to poll ourselves to see which release by an artist not only set them atop of the industry but stapled them in as musical gods.
Without question, one of the most anticipated albums of the year will be Muse’s newest release. Because these guys are such perfectionists (trust me, we appreciate it), the band has been quoted several different times during the course of recording, truly building up the anticipation.
[Matt]Bellamy jokingly described the album as a “christian gangsta rap jazz odyssey, with some ambient rebellious dubstep and face melting metal flamenco cowboy psychedelia” on his Twitter account.
According to Wiki
In an interview with Kerrang! on 14 December 2011 Christopher Wolstenholme stated that the next Muse album would be “something radically different” from their prior releases. He also said that it felt as if the band were “drawing a line under a certain period” of their career with their sixth album. It was revealed via Muse’s publicist Tom Kirk on his Twitter account that composer David Campbell who had worked with acts such as Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, Avril Lavigne and Adele was helping Matt Bellamy compose the album. In an interview in the April 2012 issue of NME, Bellamy said that the band were set to include elements of electronic music, with influences coming from acts such as French house duo Justice, as well as the inclusion of brass players. Bellamy also confirmed a release date of autumn 2012 for the album in the interview.
So before we get to enjoy the new album, let’s take a peak at their career to this point. So begs the question…which of their records is their best? Tell us your favorite and why by voting and commenting.
