My least favorite muse album, same formula, same concept, most mixed quality.
I like conspiracy theorist stuff, but listening to this album felt like a brainwash they are singing about so much these days...

Matt Bellamy: “we want to go back to making real rock, we realized we grabbed synths too fast making music”

Me: “well, this is going to be a disaster”

Lesson for the kids: don’t give a fuck about what hipsters say what is ‘real’ music, be as plastic and fake as you want, as long as the result is good.

From ars2458
This album is a continuing the decline of Muse. It seems that Muse has become focused on proving points and less on making quality songs and making cohesive albums. Muse's first failure was choosing a buzz word make and topic. There is no subtly to this. To hammer home what they are trying to say, they chose some pretty on the nose art for the album cover. Then each of the songs appears to just have generic negative commentary, without actually hitting home on any real content. So, getting all of the auxiliary issues out of the way, the music itself is just a recycling of their sound without any of the distinguishing instrumentation or melodies of their earlier work. Without the musicality of their earlier work and with a blame generic message and some contrived importance, Muse has just created an album that appeals to few, and drives away fans like me.

Most songs of this album are 8+, but Psycho, Drill Sergeant and Drones are completely unnecessary. 6/10, but without those 3 songs it goes up to 8/10.

From Museman
This album is great!
To only get 61/100 is very sad to see as i think this album has got some great songs on it. Reapers is an excellent song, Psycho has some good guitar rifts and GREAT live.
Dead inside isn't as bad as allot of people say and that goes the same for Mercy. Most of the songs are lowly rated and Revolt is one that should be allot higher.

I am a big Muse fan but was there really that many more better albums in 2015?

Overall a well made and enjoyable album to listen to.
Probably my fourth favourite Muse album after the best three.

Yep, I tend to agree with the sentiment out there, this one is a clanger. There are some very good tracks and you can tell they are trying to hark back to the good old days, but there is some serious drivel (particularly lyrically) on this album. Not one that I will be playing a lot in the future.

From LedZep
Not deserving so much criticism, not a fantastic album but a good one. As a conceptual album I gave it plus points before even listening to it, but in all reality concept is not so interesting. Dead Inside was a horrible single, one of their worst songs. Psycho is good but has somewhat bad lyrics, Mercy is pretty meh, even bad. Reapers is on the other hand brilliant hard rocker, splendid live. Handler, JFK and Defector make a nice rocking middle, pretty cool songs. Revolt and Aftermath are good, but Globalist is just fantastic, probably my fav along with Reapers. Drones is a good closer and along with Globalist the only really concept proggy thing I can see on this album. All in all, I always expect more from Muse, as a fan I know what they're capable of.
