    I will admit, this album took some time to grow on me. Being a huge fan of Muse's older material, I have learned to keep an open mind as the sound progressed over the last few years. Initially, I couldn't get into "Dead Inside," one of the first singles to be released for the album. Same goes with "Psycho," which really took everything I had not to change the station when it would come on the radio. Nevertheless, I bought the album. Frankly, I love it. And not necessarily because of the music itself (which is very well done), but because the album as a whole flows as one giant story being told from the viewpoint of someone who is coping with begrudgingly becoming a "servant" to the government. It flows together nicely, and quite a few of the songs have nods to the older sounds that made me fall in love with this band in the first place. While I am trying to avoid sounding like a biased fan, I would encourage anyone and everyone to give this a listen '.

    Okay I was particularly excited for this release. I love MUSE. and I love Mutt Lange. I was so excited to hear that Mutt was going to be supporting these guys and sitting in the producer's chair on this record. I was not let down in the slightest! We still have MUSE here, with a slight Mutt Lange touch of heaviness and huge guitars! Psycho has Mutt all over it. When I first heard the single tho I was a little disappointed because the electronics of MUSE didn't seem to be present. NO WORRIES. The rest of the cd is full of it. Brilliant concept to the album too. I would pull out the sleeve and read the lyrics as you listen to it. Brilliant story. Not a happy ending ;)

    After their past two albums began to dwindle into a parody of themselves, Muse has returned with an album at least partially worthy of their name. Though there are some disappointing tracks here (Psycho and especially Revolt), for the large part the album is a success. It does seem the band has run short of creativity, as many songs are retreads of some of their finest songs yet they also lack the hooks that made those songs classics. Still, average Muse is better than the mediocrity of The 2nd Law, so if you consider yourself a fan you can rest assured this album is worth a purchase.

    I really like this album. Some may say that the style of music differs too much, but if you know Muse that is to be expected. I love their music. I need a theme in any music I listen to so the first thing I do is listen to the song with the lyrics before me to make sure I understand what the song is about. Agree or disagree with the message they are trying to send I enjoy the fact that this groups makes strong statements.

    Despite the reviews, it's just not that great

    I've loved, and owned, every Muse album to date, except this one. After a week of listening to it, I just can't get into it. Only two songs stand out at all, and one is all over the radio. It just seems uninspired, repetitive, and it feels like they're out of ideas. Certainly not the stellar music that I'm used to from this band. I have high standards of music, and this one falls short.

    This album was gave me a new feeling. All the songs sounded somewhat similar to me, but each song is also very unique. I'd say, altogether that this album was unique. As a fan of muse, I'd buy it. And as someone who has only heard like one of their songs, I'd still buy it. I love the album, personally, so I believe anyone with an ear for things that are unique will too.

    Love Muse. They always put their creative thinking caps on before a new album. This has influences from U2 and Queen, plus other groups I can't quite thing of off the top of my head. Overall, a stellar album as usual. Standouts include Reapers and The Handler, while The Globalist is their new homage to Knights of Cydonia.

    I'm a big fan of this band, and this album is another great example of why. They know how to rock, how to innovate, and how to write about real issues and speak frankly about the world we live in. This album is phenomenal and is great for both the avid fan, and the new listener. Long live Muse!!
