    Susan Boyle, "Wild Horses". Out-fucking-standing.

    On an initial listen, other than the admittedly great "Undisclosed Desires", I found the new Muse to be unmitigated shit.

    Well, it is a grower, although in the opposite way most growers work (the hooks don't grow, necessarily, you just get used to the tackiness and give in). My listening habits are very similar to Morte's, as "United States of Eurasia" is often the painful record scratch--RRRRRRKKKK--that kicks me back to the beginning of the disc. If I'm in work listening mode I'll easily make it through the entire disc, but if I'm driving around bumpin that shit crankin that shit doin that shit you better believe it's first three tracks and nothing else.

    But, still, the album is sinking its hooks in with each listen. It's sequenced perfectly, three acts of three songs with ludicrous Muse-offs connecting them. You start off in radio-friendly 80's electro mode, and then "USoE" kicks you by the grapes into, well, B-sides from previous albums territory, before "I Belong to You" eases you into the three-party symphonic rock opus that wraps things up. Where you begin bears nothing in common with where you end, and yet somehow the journey works.

    It's not the wall to wall bullseye of BHaOR, but it's also not quite the flopsweat-drenched disaster I initially feared.

    Plus, Scots, you're still in hate mode--you're not due to start connecting with this until a good six months from now once everyone else has moved on.

    I'm not in hate mode as I was never truly a Muse devotee, however USoE was so bad I skipped it. As you remind me, of course, one listen is not exactly fair and I didn't make it through the end symphony first time through either. Also muse b sides more like queen tribute night.

    I'm just addicted to their songs and the chorus is quite catchy, electronic goodness.

    Seem to be a weird, proggy mix of death and post-hardcore. Clean vocals are pretty interesting. Drummer is clear highlight of this band, though, holy shit.

    Seem to have a weird mix of influences- Meshuggah and Isis, specifically. A match made in hell?

    Not bad!

    My pleasure!

    The crazy part is that it's from an Orwellian retelling of the Mega Man story that they're doing as a rock opera. Crazy, yes, but crazy awesome.

    Here's a working album link for you deth. I don't know if the work is licenced but the band made it clear that sharing the album with as many people as possible was welcome, so don't hesitate to share the link. People can also donate here.

    But you return to me at night, just when I think I may have fallen asleep.
    Your face is up against mine, and I'm too terrified to speak.

    Early one morning last spring, my alarmclockradio comes on at 7:00, as usual. Normally I'll just hit the snoozebutton and roll over, or if they're playing or talking about something interesting I'll just lay there, dozing, half-listening. This particular morning a song was playing. I guess it took a moment for the beat and the rhytmic vocals to sink in but pretty soon I was wide awake, staring at my radio. This had to be one of the most awesome songs I'd heard in weeks. Then I forgot about it. Didn't hear the song on the radio again. Guess it didn't catch on.

    Half an hour ago I was watching Entourage and there it is again! This time I rush to my computer and type in what I could discern of the lyrics into Google and finally find out what it was. Day N Nite, by Kid Cudi. Goddamn what a song!
