Song by Song Review From Jeuxactu

French magazine, Jeuxactu, were one of the lucky few who were allowed a sneak peek at Muse's new album, The 2nd Law.

You can read their full review, here (in French), or check out the brief summary below (sorry for the translation - feel free to send us alternatives!).

Supremacy:
Guitar riffs looks like Led Zeppelin, no real structure

Madness:
A surprisingly calm son. The electro arrangements remind of Depeche Mode

Panic Station:
Punk and disco at the same time. Huge single material

Follow me:
It goes crescendo. starts quietly and ends in an almost dancefloor beat with big bass

Animals:
Fast beat, you expect heavy riffs but they never come. Short guitar solo. The Song is a little bit underwhelming

Explorers:
Nice voice of Matt for a song that looks a bit like Blackout. Not very original song. Lyrics: Can you free me from this world

Big Freeze:
Very surprising song. Very funk but also very Musey. Single material also

Save me:
Very different because of the low voice of Chris

Liquid State:
Rockiest (heaviest?) song of the album. Chris sounds like the singer of Tool

Unsustainable:
Music of the trailer... No further info

Isolated system.
Begins very calm. No singing at all, main part is piano. Ends with the voice of a woman in a loop
