SuperMassive Black Hole

May 22nd, 2006

Muse are one of my favorite bands, I’ve seen them live tons of times and bought virtually everything they’ve put out so when I heard that people had heard the first single of their upcoming album needless to say I was quite excited about having a listen myself.

People had warned me it was quite a bit different to their usual stuff, more pop-ie, more funky and with Matt singing in a high-pitched voice for most of it… they weren’t wrong! After my first listen I wasn’t sure about it… It still had Muse elements but was significantly different from their other stuff. Matt had said before Absolution that their music was becoming more like ABBA but luckily Absolution was pretty dark and apocolyptic (the Iraq war had some plus points). This song might be what he was talking about.

I’ve now listened to it a couple of times and its got better and better with each listen… I’ve had the main chorus stuck in my head for hours, and whilst I hope the new album is more rocky than this song I think it will make a great first single. It’s certainly more radio friendly.

The video is below… have a listen… and then another and then make up your mind… just beware… the video is quite creepy!

    The video seems a little weak compared to their previous efforts – but still good.

    As for the song itself, it’s perfect to listen to at full blast with the windows open and sunshine pouring in – or, even better, on an MP3 player while wandering about outside.

    Hopefully the rest of the new album is up to the same high standards.

    I’ve been listening to the album for the last couple of weeks and whilst I wasn’t that keen on it at the beginning its really grown on me now. Not up to Absolution or Origin of Symmetry level but still really good.

    The album as a whole is a lot funkier and they modify Matt’s voice a lot more. I personally prefer the second half of the album the most as its the rockier half and I’m not too keen on Soliders Song and the one before it.

    It’s definately an album that sounds best on an mp3 player and is good wandering music. Overall… me likes…
