as resident muse fanboy i'll have to advise that follow me is only kind of alright if you're in to that kind of stuff, and it is the worst single off the album. the 2nd law is one of their weaker albums, not as bad as drones, but it still has some great music in there. if you want to relive some of the most exciting rock music of 2012, listen to Supremacy and Survival, which both have fantastic orchestral writing and usage of extended instrumentation. Supremacy feels like an abandoned Bond theme, and it's glorious. as for electronic music and pop, Madness is my pick of the album. it was wildly successful, and for good reason. it's catchy and simple and it's charming and passionate. Unsustainable is an interesting experiment in rock-dub fusion, with some more brilliant orchestra usage, if not too repetitive. Animals is interesting if only for its 5/4 meter and E flat minor tonality, both equally unusual for a rock song.

however the best track on the album is quite easily the closer, Isolated System, which pivots around a simple and ambiguous ostinato to create a feeling of overwhelming change and loss, and perfectly portrays the message Bellamy wished to make with this album. Isolated System always leaves me with a twisted face, which is remarkable for an instrumental on a rock album.
but the most fun track is definitely Panic Station. it's Prince and Queen style groove, nonsense lyrics, and honestly the most fun song they've put out since 2006's Knights of Cydonia, although they're in completely different styles.

the 2nd law is actually an pretty solid album, with some fantastic songs on either end. its flaws lie in the overly pop-style filler songs in between, which have never been the band's strong suit. Big Freeze, Follow Me and Explorers are alright songs that don't serve much of a purpose or carry much weight. if you choose to listen to the 2nd law, i recommend you skip at least Explorers, and maybe Follow Me and Unsustainable if you can't deal with dub-club-bass wub-wubs in your rock song. Save Me and Liquid State are both interesting songs, and it's refreshing to hear Chris' voice and his struggle with alcoholism. i do wish they'd put them in the middle of the album, though.
i know nobody cares about my thoughts on the 2nd law, but this was fun to write ^_^

anyway, here's the best Muse song. i love it. it is perfect.

The 2nd Law is my favorite muse album because they did such a great job of broadening their style, taking so many different genres and making them feel like Muse. Except for Big Freeze. Muse doesn't need to sound like U2.

I'm also not anywhere near a muse fanboy so take that for what it is

if that's going to be your favourite muse album, then that's a good reason for it to be. you're right, they did do a great job branching out and handling so many different styles. i just have an attachment to Origin of Symmetry, Absolution and Black Holes.

can we all agree that drones is
uhh
not very great

Origin of Symmetry is my favorite album, not only because it has my favorite music, but also because it feels like the most cohesive album in their library. I more often listen to full albums than I do individual songs, so this is really important to me.

I've only given Drones probably one listen, but I'd say it probably is their weakest album. Muse seems more concerned with making cool songs than making interesting music anymore.

I like Big Freeze

Also I realize I never responded to Pacman's Muse post, but I totally did care about what you said. ;_;

"Follow Me" managed to win me over more than the others for some reason that I can't explain because I'm not really a musician (except what little experience I had in choir). *_* "Panic Station" is probably my second favorite Muse song right now (because Prince x Queen  yusss). I think afterwards, "Madness" and "Uprising" are tied third. I'm going to give more of their rock stuff another go, starting with your recommendations. ^_^ I'm sadly not as into rockish beats as I used to be, and I'd like to revive that. ;o

don't let what i said get to you, i was being (as so often i am) a dick, and y'all just kinda let me because "aww, pacman and his muse". i was being more contentious than i had right to be, and i'm not even sure that what i was saying were actually my beliefs. i was just saying them for the sake of saying them. ??
i find myself singing and playing "follow me" probably more than any other song on that album. it's a fine song, and i find myself becoming more emotionally attached to it. i'm not sure you'd know this - it sounds a lot like a general love song, you know, i'll protect you and keep you safe because i love you and that kind of shit. but it's actually a song to his then-newborn son, which makes it... yeah, i like it.

but i do still implore you to become more immersed in muse. they're a groovy band.

Again with my late replies... I'm really bad at getting through my unread box. ;_;

I honestly didn't think you were being rude at all! :yuyu: You know more about Muse than I do, so it's interesting to hear the perspective of a fan. And knowing what that song is really about makes me like it even more ohmygosh that's freaking cool. ;____;

Sadly, I'm not really good at sticking with one band and kinda pick a few songs and run with them. I'd like to avoid doing that with Muse and delve more into their stuff (which I fully intend to do soon), but the spotify list of their grooves is a little...daunting. O.O


Also, I could've sworn I posted this song .... but I guess not. :( I'm going to have to go through more of their stuff, too.
