Muse - Drones, 2015  (9/10) 

 🤔 perhaps, although supposedly

 ‘ a concept album ‘ …due to having ‘ Mutt’ on-board as (co)producer .. is this their most straight ahead (in places) Hard Rock album (?)

This is in my car’s CD player …so I listen to it a lot !! … mostly because as much as I like it… the real reason is I can’t be bothered to go back in the house to change it for something different ! 🙃

Love this to death.

Muse Black Holes & Revelations (10/10)

 

This album is just note for note perfect.

 

Mick

I want a remaster to deal with some of the loudness issues that creep in, but otherwise yes.

Muse-Drones (10/10)

 

Of recent Muse albums (recent as in everything from 2nd law, lol) this is my fav.  and i actually think they should have retained Mutt Lange a bit longer.  He and the band were actually a GREAT match IMO.

Muse-The 2nd law (8/10)

 

I'd say of all Muse's album this one is the most "let's try ALL the things"  album.

 

Madness

Panic Station (their take on......New jack swing......a totally dead genre:wtf: lol)

Survival

 

and that's just some.  and i've actually really grown to like this mostly.

 

except the 2nd Law mini-suite.  they did a suite again like on the Resistance and AGAIN it fails.  they might have figured it out cause they stopped those going forward, lol

I love The Resistance suite. The 2nd Law’s is far less serious. They still use Isolated System in their live shows as a kind of breather between acts (also Dom sometimes uses it as a drum solo), but Unsustainable is a relic of its time. A fascinating one I still enjoy, but very kitsch. Totally agree about this being the “try everything” album. From James Bond to dubstep to Coldplay and U2 and Foo Fighters and Stevie Wonder.

I am still shocked you don't enjoy Imaginations From The Other Side! That's probably the bands most acclaimed album, alongside Nightfall! I love a differing opinion though.  

 

I did not really enjoy their latest album The God Machine. In fact, I was sorely disappointed by it. They said it was a return to their roots but I felt it was just poorly produced and sounds at times like demos. I prefer their first two speed metal albums over that.

 

For me, A Twist In Tge Myth just feels waaaaay too over produced. Like the production is so LOUD and the mixing is awful. I find it a drain to listen too. And the songs? Pretty much all filler, although I have a soft spot for Otherland because it's based on a Sci fi series from my favourite author Tad Williams. 

Good thing you like differing opinions - since music is art its a 100% guarantee that one persons treasure will be another trash.  

 

Want to be shocked some more?  Well, I aim to please.  For example my top Rush albums would be:

 

1.   2112

2.   Power Windows

3.   HYF

4.   FBN

5.   Presto

6.   AFTK

7.   S & A

 

Rush has 19 original studio albums.  Notice 3 albums that I have not yet mentioned?  Namely Hemispheres, Permanent Waves & MP.  So that means for me those 3 (plus Grace Under Pressure, Signals & Counterparts) are jumbled together behind the 7 I mentioned.  Not exactly certain of the order of these 6 albums.  Yes, I said it.  I like Presto, S & A and HYF more than MP and Hemispheres.  Hows that for a shock?!  But it is my honest musical taste.

 

Interesting that you mention The God Machine.  Here we see alike.  I have listened to it and I was not impressed - not at all.  I had a hard time getting through it to be honest.  One of these days I will take another run at it but even when I have listened to some of the individual songs I have not been impressed.  Great vocals but the songs just don't do much for me.  I prefer Imaginations over it and perhaps, maybe, the speed metal albums as well.  I need to give them all another shot - although they don't thrill me much either.

Blind Guardian - At The Edge of Time

 

Good album.  Liked it much more than A Twist in the Myth.  About on par with Tales From The Twilight World.  But its not as enjoyable as Nightfall in Middle Earth, A Night at the Opera or Somewhere Far Beyond.

 

Favorite song?  Clearly "Tanelorn (Into the Void)"

 

Second favorite would be a 3 way tie between "Curse My Name", "Valkyries" & "Wheel of Time".

 

There are some other good songs on the album such as "Road of No Release", "Control the Devine" & "A Voice in the Dark" but those first 4 clearly stand out.  Production value of the album was better than A Twist in the Myth.

Oh I love that! I'd have Roll The Bones in my top five and Hold Your Fire is definitely up there!! Yeah my list is non typical either!

you  know my opinion WOTP.......so i can only hope so, lol

 

cause i really do think he was a superb match  and Drones really bears that out.

 

The fact that mutt is one and done is a crime.
