Muse - Drones (2014-2015)

6/2/15 1:29PM

wow, um, this newest single "The Handler" is probably the best of all of these singles. Very heavy Absolution-vibe.

Maybe this album is a little of a sleeper, ironically. It drops in just a few days thankfully.

hmm, I'm kind of digging this one. It has somewhat of a Origin of Symmetry/Absolution vibe to it.

meh..not sure about this new track "Mercy." I guess I don't expect to get blown away by Muse, but I did find The 2nd Law pretty good, and these 1st 3 singles initially aren't going all that far for me. I am hoping within the album they may do more, or at least many of the best tracks I still haven't heard.

"Dead Inside" stream below.

despite the clipping cymbals in spots (which may be a product of a YouTube stream anyway, I like this more than Psycho already. Nothing mindblowing, but it's okay, catchy enough, etc.

3/11/15 2:16PM - 3/12/15 2:35PM

"Psycho"...not awful, but meh..maybe it'll work within the rest of the record.


Preorder and "Psycho" tomorrow, and "Dead Inside" the opening track coming on March 23rd.

1. Dead Inside
2. [Drill Sergeant]
3. Psycho
4. Mercy
5. Reapers

8. Defector
9. Revolt
10. Aftermath
11. The Globalist
12. Drones

From Matt: “To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse.  The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones.  This album explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors." 
The first single from Drones, “Dead Inside,” will debut the week of 23 March. Preorder for the new album will be available tomorrow at 7:30pm GMT, along with the new song “Psycho.”

An orchestra? "Drones"..well at least it's a title that is current.

ACDC producer Robert "Mutt" Lange is producing. Release date? TBA of course at this point.

brief clip, LOL

Unlike some people, I actually liked a fair amount of their last record The 2nd Law, so I am certainly looking forward to this. But we'll see, and the expectation of time for it is probably not incredibly soon, but then again, Muse are a band who doesn't share a lot about their new albums and then announce they will come out in a few weeks.
