Brink: I don't care if you have to cut off my hand, just don't leave me to die here!
Maggie Robbins: Don't be so dramatic Brink; nobody is going to cut off your hand.
Boston Low: Don't make promises you might not be able to keep Maggie

Too Queenish for my taste, and the ending was so lame.
Queenish can't be bad. I loved the Morricone meets Queen stuff in Knights of Cydonia.
This seems a little subdued at first. After several listens, I'm liking it more. We'll see what else the album brings... the 3-part "symphony" should be interesting.
...and nobody mentioned Temple of Doom yet?

I'm really looking forward to their new album... Can't wait for those symphonies.

I don't like Queen at all.
I love Queen!
I don't think Knights of Cydonia sounded Queenish
The multitrack vocal choir in the middle has a decidedly Queenish sound to it. Not as strong as Eurasia, of course, which could be straight out of We Are the Champions.

I'd go with "homage" if the lyrics of this song had anything to do with the relevant material in TOD...

They're touring Europe these days. No Austrian dates so far though.
I like the new album very much. The so-called "symphony" is a slight disappointment in that it's nice but nothing really outstanding. After all the rave reviews and Bellamy spending years arranging the orchestra parts, I was expecting a bit more then endless string arpeggios. Not that it's bad, but I like pretty much all the other stuff on the album more.
When I started out, Black Holes and Revelations was my favourite among their albums, even though it apparently gathered mostly slightly disappointed reviews compared to their earlier ones. It's probably my second favourite now since Absolution took the top spot (and not just, but also, for the absolutely brilliant Butterflies and Hurricanes).

Judging from their live albums, there should be plenty of classics still on the set list though. I'm certainly hoping for Butterflies and Hurricanes.
Reading backwards through the olders posts, I mostly seem to be repeating myself in this last one.

Absolution and Black Holes and Revelations are my favourites.
"Let me say, however, there is no "next" John Williams. Sadly, he is unique--- a figure who simultaneously embodies and transcends the music of all the masters of film music who preceded him (much like Brahms and Wagner of the Romantic era). He comes from a time when the craft of music in film was still one of the ear, heart and mind. Today, sadly, the craft is largely technical. Most composers do not conceive their music "inwardly" but rather at the computer--- and with rather limited skills, musically, at that. The inner spirit knows no boundaries--- our plastic abilities, sadly, do. John is a man of spirit, heart, intellect and soaring music." -- Conrad Pope about John Williams

Survival sounds like they were trying to take the piss out of the Olympics.

Ugh, this sounds dreadful.
Just stop trying so hard to be shit, Muse, and just give me more of this:

Now why don't someone ask them to do a Bond song?
