Let’s discuss new Muse and their song Unsustainable for a moment, shall we?
First of all, Muse has stated multiple times that only the last two songs (Unsustainable and Isolated Systems) are like this. Muse, and Matt especially, are skilled musicians, as we’ve heard from the orchestral sounds they’ve created, the amazing piano pieces, and now [once AGAIN] we’re hearing just how good they are by their use of guitar to create electronic music. It takes a lot of skill to be able to play guitar like that and have it sound good (yes, it sounds good, don’t even say other wise).
Second, for anyone bashing the “political statement” made in Unsustainable clip, you clearly know nothing about Muse or Matthew Bellamy. He loves conspiracy theories, things regarding the government—the entire last album was slightly 1984-themed and was album about totalitarian government, uprisings, and revolution. Towards the middle of Resistance, at the end of United States Of Eurasia, we hear missiles launching, and the Exogenesis Symphonies are all about the destruction/failure of the human race, and the repopulation of mankind throughout the universe (not to multiple other songs on multiple other albums). So if you’re drawing the line at unsustainable consumption of resources and the Laws Of Thermodynamics…I’m done with you.
And another thing: Muse is a constantly changing and constantly improving band. With each album they’ve gotten bigger, better, and more awe-inducing with their music, and Unsustainable only solidifies that. Matthew Bellamy is definitely an amazing composer, and if Unsustainable has caused you to LOSE faith in Muse rather than GAIN, I just don’t even know what to say. It literally leaves me at a loss for words.
Even if all the songs on the album sounded this way, I would still love it. I wholly trust Muse to create a beautiful album. If you don’t like this song as a standalone, I can guarantee you will like it once the entire feeling and theme of the album has been released. And if you don’t, well, you’re clearly the problem here, not the music, and should evaluate how different your taste in music is now from what it was in 2009.
The new single, Madness, comes out in ten days, and the new album is being described as a "christian gangsta rap jazz odyssey, with some ambient rebellious dubstep and face melting metal flamenco cowboy psychedelia." Just think about that and let it marinate.

According to the band in a track-by-track description of the album in NME, the album incorporates elements of symphonic rock, dubstep and synth pop. “Madness”, according to NME, features influences which draw from Queen's I Want to Break Free and David Bowie's Scary Monsters and Super Creeps album. Frontman Matt Bellamy has stated that dubstep producer Skrillex was an influence when writing the final two tracks on the album - “The 2nd Law: Unsustainable” and “The 2nd Law: Isolated System”. He also stated that the song “Follow Me” was written about his newborn son, Bingham Bellamy. “Panic Station” features musicians who performed on Stevie Wonder's Superstition and the song will include funk rock influences. Opening track “Supremacy” will feature Led Zeppelin-esque guitar riffs as well as strings and will not focus on a particular structure, being more based in progressive rock. Bassist Chris Wolstenholme wrote two songs for the album - “Save Me” and “Liquid State” - about his battle with alcoholism, with him providing lead vocals on both tracks. In a recent interview Muse reported Nero is helping on the track ‘Follow Me’.

P.S., don’t tag your fucking hate.
