Is it worth giving this new Muse album a listen?

What do people think..?

A few people have said it was good (Twilightseer among others). I'm shaking my head (Tina's shaking her head). I'll have that one next year, when my prejudice wears off.

A mate of mine has it, says it's really good.

Only track I've heard from it is Time Is Running Out, which I love. It's a different class from Origin of Symmetry (which I also love) and Showbiz.

Yes it is, "Sing For Absolution" only justifies it but there are loads of good songs on it

Apparently it's a bit of a mix of radiohead/abba/classical/queen/shampoo/a slight bit of rush...

Just as I suspected then, hyped to the teeth cos there's little else around.

Okay then orac, as an ethical music-lover will you
A; Destroy those MP3's
B; Buy the album anyway?

Surely you won't just keep the MP3's?

I have it, i like it. There are a couple of songs worth skipping but what's good on it is excellent.

Let me know what it's like. I've only heard bit-parts. Geddy Lee/Favourite Headache's supposed to be good (I've got it somewhere).

abba?? XD

now that the muse hype has sortof faded, im starting to think that they arent that great... they sort of hit on a winning formula and then did it over and over again for all of their singles. (although, with some really good songs along the way)

I do like what ive heard of the new one, but its nothing incredible.
