Album Review- Muse’s “2nd Law”


Muse’s, “The 2nd Law” is the English rock band’s sixth album.

The album begins with “Supremacy.” The song starts with the creeping of an epic guitar crawl that makes my heart beat faster and faster.

I find myself stuck inside the soothing voice of Matthew Bellamy, the thundering bass and the percussion that follows him in the background.

I like the lyrics of “Madness,” but I also enjoy the vibrations heard in the background.

Moving on to “Panic Station.” It has an 80s feel to it. It could possibly be my favorite on the album.

I didn’t find the song, “Survival” pleasing to listen to. The choir as the backup chorus makes me second guess whether I am listening to Muse or Queen, and I don’t want to have to think about what I’m listening to.

“Follow Me” is a song full of rhythms that add a dance feel that I really enjoy, and it sounds like something out of the mid to late 90s.

With “Animals,” we start to hear the Muse most of us are used to again. In the first couple seconds, the lyrics connected with me, which describe the shocking actions humans are capable of, and I understood the message automatically.

Meanwhile, “Big Freeze” is the type of song that would create a magical feeling if heard live due to its funk feeling.

“Liquid State” has incredible guitar and bass lines that sucked me in from the very beginning.

The vocals are sung by Christopher Wolstenholme instead of Bellamy. It was a bit different to hear another singer, but I got use to it quickly.

Needless to say, Muse has created another unforgettable album.
