REVIEW: MUSE THE 2ND LAW
16 December 2012
Music & Movies
The Pom prog trio meld their bombastic baroque-rock with even more experimental electronic elements.
HIGHLIGHTS: Opener Supremacy shows off the band's histrionic flourishes melding maestro Matt Bellamy's teste-tightening wail with a military tattoo, thunderous grooves and
sinister 007 these-type synths. Meanwhile, Madness is all squelchy synths, Survival is their typical grandiose anthemery and Unsustainable takes a dubstep detour.
ZOO's VERDICT: No wonder smokin' Kate Hudson is still shtonking the rabbity Bellamy: the guy is a god!
Ambitious musicianship executed on an operatic scale, it the synth-fused riffs and highfalutin melodies dont bludgeon you over the head, then the preachy socio-political lyrics certainly will. Epic.
