Muse - Panic Station

"This chaos, it defies imagination"

With Muse, I've gone from loving them to not loving them and back again. Absolution continues to be my favorite of their albums, while the follow-ups have had their moments but failed to completely win me over from beginning to end. With this new one, they've finally gone and modified their sound, opting for a slightly more electronic--even dubstep--influence. It couldn't have happened soon enough. They sound reinvigorated, and even though I haven't had the time to delve in more seriously, on first listen the album sounds stronger than they've released in awhile. I love the record's big, theatrical moments (of which there are many), but it was this funky, surprisingly straightforward little song that got me right off the bat. It's really an example of what a simple melody and production can do if it's this awesome. It's like Muse mixed with Scissor Sisters! (And who would've ever expected that combination??)
