If that song in the trailer is really one of their songs....I will be confused....

Elever 06-06-2012 05:39 PM

New Muse album? Bout time. But why are they releasing a trailer for it like it's a movie lol. It's just a collection of songs. Glad to see though that they're still aware and following the non-minastream news.

I liked The Resistance but a bit too much weird experimentation going on towards the 2nd half of that album.

I don't like all the cliche sounding guitar rock bands from the 80s or 90s, I prefer the indie type from the 2000's but Muse always have a newness to their sound.

I didnt like the last album too much. I hope it wasn't a sign of things to come.

Sovereign 06-06-2012 06:42 PM

I saw this today as well and all I can say is that I'm not too sure about this album now. :/

MAIN EVENT
Last week saw Muse lift the lid on the recording sessions for their sixth album — and reveal some hugely pertinent details about their progress. It’ll be out in autumn, they said. It’ll feature brass and strings. And it’ll include the contributions of legendary composer David Campbell.

Tweeting pictures fromt heir sessions at EastWest Studios in LA, where they also recorded tracks for 2003’s ‘Absolution”, the band told fans the album was coming along nicely. Being on the “autumn”, confirming rumours that they were aiming for an October release. They also posted images of them posing with choir and orchestra sections, which they described as “some legendary players”, as well as a shot of Matt Bellamy looking over his string section with arranger, composer and conductor Campbell, who has worked with Adele, Radiohead, Paul McCartney and Beyoncé.

Already a fascinating picture of the album — a key point in the band’s career after the lukewarm reception to 2009’s ‘The Resistance’ — is emerging. Here’s what we know so far:

THEY’RE GOING IN A NEW DIRECTION
“We feel like we are drawing a line under a certain period in our career,” Chris Wolstenholme said recently. “It feels like it’s time to do something radically different.” And besides the use of brass, they’re also heading in an electronic direction. Chris told NME that “Matt was talking about messing around with grooves and loops”, while Matt has spoken about being influenced by Justice and, er, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, claiming he wanted an electronic sound. Over the course of ‘Black Holes…’ and ‘The Resistance’, electronics and grand orchestrations have become key to Muse’s development; expect them to push these to their extremes this time.

THERE WILL BE BRASS
Though Muse recorded with a full orchestra on ‘The Resistance’ and ‘Absolution’, this is the first time they’ve hired a dedicated brass section besides the lone trumpeter Franco who purps(??) away on the intro to ‘Knights Of Cydonia’. It points towards a more striden big band sound than the orchestral frivolities of ‘Exogenesis Symphony’, or elements of the jazzy album they toyed with making while recordin ‘Black Holes…’ in the isolation of Miraval Studios, France. Typically for Muse, though, they’ve historically thrived on juxtaposition and dynamics within their albums, not just one sound.

THERE’LL BE A TUNE FOR BEDTIME
“I’ll definitely get a lullaby on there,” Matt said when asked if being a dad would have an influence on the new album. This is in keeping with his early assertion that the album would be “more personal, rather than about political conerns. That may lead to material that’s more suitable for smaller venues.” Indeed, ‘The Resistance’ could be seen to have completed a trilogy of Muse albums concerned with wide political theories: ‘Absolution’ — a fearful awakening to global issues post-9'11, ‘Black Holes…’ — a more assured dissection of the politics of control, and ‘The Resistance’ — a call to fight back. Understandably, now a father, Matt will be looking to more human aspects.

IT WILL BE MORE UPBEAT…
We shouldn’t expect Muse’s sixth album to be full of tracks moping over Matt’s break-up with his ex-girlfriend Gaia — not only has he already hooked up and had a baby with Hollywood actress Kate Hudson, but he got it out of his system on the one-off song ‘Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)’ on the Eclipse soundtrack. “By the time we get to the next album my life might have moved on,” he said, and he’s right.

…WHILE ALSO BEING MORE CHILLED
Muse have traditionally opted to cut themselves off from distractions for weeks on end in order to write and record, sometimes going as far as to have no method of communicating with the outside world at all. For this sixth album they’ve remained within reach of society and leisurely pieced it together over five months, so far. “It would be nice to be based in the same place and also socialise at the same time,” Matt has commented. “It also means we can make the album over a longer period without having to pressurise it all into a three-week studio session.”

So we are to expect “a personal album” which would be “radically different’. Frankly, we can’t wait to hear what they come up with in October.

If muse goes bigger, with their sound I mean, they will be alright. I remember reading something last year about Muse experimenting with dub. This could get interesting.

Jack Bourdain 06-06-2012 07:24 PM

dub step

I did not expect.

I don't know how I should feel.

Please Muse...I like you. Don't get into that Dubstep ****.

Sing for Absolution was such a great album. I loved every song. Their second one with Knights of Cedonia was such garbage. They dished out these poorly written radio hits that just made me think that they sold out. I hope their new one is a lot better

fixed. :)

Showbiz and Absolution are my favorite ones, personally. Origin of Symmetry is fantastic too. Resistance just sucks. It's too bad he's married now. All the good angry break up songs turned into Neutron Star Collider and **** like that.

Psycho Dad 06-07-2012 03:06 AM

The trailer brought back some of my faith in the band. Good to know that they're still straddling the line between conspiracy theory and activist causes.

Muse: The Second Law trailer released
 


It's really interesting so far, theres a Rage against the Machine influenced dubstep part, which I'm not very fond of, but i'm sure it will grow on me.

And the downhill of Muse has began

This has to be a joke. I'm embarrassed for everyone involved if it isn't.

Yep. It's not even good Dubstep. at least from what I've heard. I haven't liked Muse's new direction as it is. Resistance wasn't...bad...but it was irritating at times. I loved the concept though (huge fan of 1984 the album that inspired it).

Patchey* 06-07-2012 06:47 PM

It's not even dubstep. It's just the tone of the guitar. It's very Rage against the Machine/Tom Morello influenced. Yeah it's a little jarring, but I don't expect it to take a focal point in the album.

A bad thing IMO

It's obviously supposed to be dubstep with guitars.

:help: You realize they are Muses favorite band/ one of their biggest influences, and the majority of their songs are heavily based on their music.

It's not a whole lot different than the riffs they play live. Matt's always utilized his Khaos pad, it's just being used more prominently in the studio. The only thing I can disagree with is the robot voice, if that wasn't in there it would completely lose the "dubstep" feel.

Come on.

I don't know how anyone can say they don't sound alike. They're trying to make "rock dubstep".
