So, here's what we made of that.

Have Muse done a Bond theme yet? Because the opening track on ‘The 2nd Law’ could easily be one. Just an observation. Anyway, on their sixth album, the Teignmouth trio have flouted the rulebook once again, and although its mish-mash what’s-a-genre-anyway? approach might not sit well for those who are yearning for a return to their more conventional ‘Showbiz’ sound, it’s far from the dubstep-infused travesty we all feared. In fact, it’s quite good. We think. Whatever it is, it’s undeniably and irrevocably… Muse. And it’ll sell millions. And reach Number One. And it’s not Ed Fucking Sheeran. Which is, y’know, good.
