2 stars Now dont get me wrong, I really like Muse. 2006's Black Holes album was a classic, and Origin and Absolution are solid alt. rock albums. We prayed and prayed that Muse would finally realise their potential and become the worlds leading prog band (which 06's "Knights of Cydonia" seemed to suggest). However, it is not to be. Instead, we get a funked-up, cheesy, turgid offering, mainstream offering designed to slide delightfully into the hearts and wallets of the Kings of Leon loving public. There is slap bass, woefully Queen-esque backing vocals, and frankly embarassing lyrics from Matt Bellamy on the usual stuff (Conspiracies etc). Instead of prog, they've gone disco. Simple as. Now there is the Exogenesis suite for all us prog lovers, but even this disappoints. Also, why did they feel the need to split it into 3 separate tracks?? To make it appear more listenable to the general public??
