Yesterday Muse officially released a new track, 'Unsustainable' from their upcoming album, The 2nd Law. Now I'm not going to write a huge post about this, but I really don't like it.
Yes, It is amazing that Matthew Bellamy has again come out with making some new crazy sounds with his guitar, which of course everyone like NME are going to call this 'Dubstep'. However, why does the band feel the need to be making this genre of music, and in such an unoriginal way. If you listen to the track, the chorus has the unmistakable sound of modern day dubstep, which I find is just far too obvious nowadays, the sound feels like it's far to easy to achieve, and lets face it rather boring and tiresome.
I know a lot of people, and every die-hard-Muse-fan are going to say it's brilliant that bands change their genres between albums....but this? Come on Muse, I want the days of Origin Of Symmetry back, watching the band play that classic album in its entirety at Reading 2011 was amazing!
Looking at the track listing that was posted on NME, this first release is actually the second to last track on the album. So I am hoping the tracks leading up to this one are far better, and this one is just an afterthought at the end of the album. Ultimately with the new genre debate, bands should really evolve and fine tune their genre, not decide on changing it from one extreme to the next...following the masses. But hey this all my thought's and opinions.
