Listen: Psycho & Dead Inside (English)

Welcome back, Muse! After treading down musical paths along hard rock (Supremacy), dubstep (The 2nd Law: Unsustainable) and synthpop/psychedelic pop (Madness and The 2nd Law: Isolated System) in their previous album The 2nd Law (of Thermodynamics), the band strongly returns to its roots with a dark and moody Drones. Characterised by their trademark hysterical vocals and manic guitar work, the militaristic-themed Psycho and Dead Inside make for gripping listens.
