4 stars Muse formula to success is simple: a couple of songs for MTV, another couple for a soundtrack in a box office movie and that's it. The rest of the album is always excelent. I love the music in this album, maybe some of them are not that real prog but they are good songs indeed. The first track sounds like perfect for a James Bond movie, with excellent orchestration, and the typical low verse part rising to a climax in the chorus. The second track is a complete tribute to Queen, the choruses, the guitar, the way Matthew sings ... Really good indeed. The next songs are well performed, well arranged. Matthew is always at a great level, performing and singing. Chris and Dominic have good participation, but I think they have pretty more action, in terms of progressive music, in Sing for Absolution. But the album, as I mentioned above, is really good. The last track, a mini suite, suited perfectly for the World War Z movie, as a background soundtrack, and the song Follow Me, as well for that movie, is really good, though more alternative oriented. Not as excellent as Sing for Absolution, or The Resistance, but The 2nd Law is another proof of how one band can be successful and be heard by heard by all the world, making music for the masses, subliminally and taking control of the industry with good compositions.
