From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars While not a traditional "prog album". It has elements of progressive rock. It is a concept album pertaining to the world as it is. A practical police state. This album discusses the emotions of the people stuck in/dealing with this increased security and "big brother". It is a complete album in the vein of mix of Queen's "A Night at the Opera" and "The Game". With many genre's interwoven into what I call a masterpiece of prog/heavy/blues-funk. Bellamy's vocals are at their peak. While Wolstenholme and Howard provide a beyond exceptional rhythm section. The overall content of the lyrics are quite true and inspiring. To me the stand out tracks are are the first three. The album kind of tapers of with some "dubstep" influences, but what makes it cool is it's all done on Bellamy's customized guitar.

Definitely an album worth your time and a great followup to their epic album, "The Resistance".
