5 stars I cant say that the album hit me when i first time heard it. And it had something to do with the fact my friend, a long time Muse fan sayed that it quite far from good. But still i did'nt share his opinion on the album. So a month later i bought the album and i was stunned. Every song that is on the album seamed to work for the entity of the album.

Still many complains that this is'nt the same Muse that whe heard on the Absolution album. Clad it's not because Absolution was greatly overrated by Muse fans. A few really good tracks but in whole the album sucked.

In this album it's the opposite. None of the tracks blows my mind like in the earlier albums but the album in whole is pure dynamite.

Muse is at the spot that they need to be to stay relevant for years to come. reasently i been tossing that word "relevant" a lott when it comes down to my early favorite bands, and allmost every single one of them are in a spot where they can do something different or they can fade away.

Muse has evolved to something else and it fork's damn well for them.

When it comes down to the tracks itself, the 4 first song's are more then enough to keep you interessed throughout the album. Longer the album the theme becomes more cryptic and more and more massive.

From the combositions on the album are not that great as i wished for, but they fork, and thats really all that matters in the end. With the lyrics of course.

Overal this album is not perfect. it's close but still.. about 4.8 i would say. In the end a great rock album that should'nt be ignored.

Confetti | 5/5 |
