Muse Promises Diverse Range On New Album

Posted by - 08:36 AM on 06/29/12
Muse says that its new album, The 2nd Law, will be "very diverse." There is a jazzy song with brass instruments and a song with dubstep influences, which you can hear a clip of in the album trailer in the replies. The dubstep is limited to that song only, though.
From the ArticleThen asked what people could expect to hear on the album, he added: "We've tried a bunch of new things, which the trailer gives a glimpse of. There's only one song that's like that. We've basically tried to do what Rage Against The Machine did with hip-hop in the 1990s and take a bit of the electronic world and dubstep and play it with real instruments. There's only one track like that, the rest of it is very very diverse."

I don't like that Olympics song at all but I'll definitely give this album a shot.

Haha, they were serious about the dubstep. Not sure how I feel about that.
I'll try to take the music for what it is, although I'm not a fan of their more recent material.

Hopefully everyone will shut up with saying they made a dubstep album now.

This is going to be polarizing.

I love that their approach to dubstep includes actually playing it with instruments. Nothing wrong with programming those types of beats, but it must be a challenge to get that to sound authentic live.

THIS. So much this. Muse live is like listening to a beautiful earthquake.

Such talented guys - I am beyond stoked for this, even though I'm lukewarm about "Survival."

That track for the Olympics is very Queen-esque.

Haven't checked out anything from this album except for the trailer, so I'm kind of reassured to hear that it won't be dubstep except for that song. Not really upset with them broadening their horizons musically, I think they know what they're doing enough that they can pull it off. Even if they don't, I've gotten enough music from Muse that I can handle a bad album lol
