Muse, Dubstep, and the 2nd Law
So, teenageriottv.wordpress.com wrote an article recently about Muse’s trailer for their upcoming album, “The 2nd Law.” I quote from said article,
“The music in this trailer is very much a Dubstep song, which is one of the worst genres of music…ever! Are Muse really going all Dubstep? This has got to be a joke, right? Are they just trolling their fans?”
Reading this, I find it utterly amusing. My rule had been for the longest time; don’t write what you don’t like. There is no point for a fan that “hasn’t really been able to get into Muse since 1999” to call them out on sucking! So, obviously the change doesn’t really affect the author, whom doesn’t even know what recent Muse sounds like according to them.
Matt Bellamy and the rest of Muse seem to be evolving as they age. Coming on the sixth studio album, the band admitted the album would be greatly varying from their other work. Matt, twittered that it would be, “Christian gangsta rap jazz odyssey, with some ambient rebellious Dubstep and face melting metal flamenco cowboy psychedelic”.
The preview, starts out with an orchestral sound, and in the last quarter turns into a hardcore Dubstep sound. Now, even I am not a fan of that, but hopefully Muse’s new album will bring a good light to Dubstep. It’s not too far away from Techno, which is widely liked and appreciated. Dubstep is just new.
Nevertheless, whatever Muse does, they will be a great band, and I have faith that they will prevail over the haters.
