    Muse's new album, The Resistance, leaked earlier today due to early-sale errors made at music stores in Melbourne and Paris.

    F**king epic.

    Definatly the album of the year so far, just for Exogenesis : Symphony alone, preety much every track is a home run, except for maybe Guiding Light. Even Undisclosed Desires which I thought was nothing more then some Timbaland-like **** from the 30 second previews is a decent song. No idea how they are going to play half these songs live though.

    And it was the French who actually leaked it first, some attention whore from Melbourne got it on Tuesday on Muselive, but only posted five songs which had already been released/played on the radio and a bunch of photos before making up some bullshit about having too much respect for the band to upload after stringing everyone along before some Frog got it from a french store selling it early and uploaded.

    Yeah I saw it was up and yeah of course I had to. Still buying the original though. I have very strong opinions on supporting artists and will be in to buy my copy day one. I've been a Muse fan since before 90% of the world had heard of them, back in mid 2000.

    I love Muse, and though I haven't heard more than one or two songs yet all I'm hearing from my friends is that it's a poor effort as Muse albums go.

    If that's what you think the subtext of my comment was then that says more about you than me MunsterMan, lol. If I have to spell it out, there's a common mis-conception in this world that to become a fan of something it needs to be popular. I tried to introduce many friends to Muse over the years and got many a "I dunno.......", or (with twisted-frown and squinty look) "They sound a little too much like they are copying Radiohead for me" and many other dismissive comments. That was 2000-2005 solid. Now I have many of the same mates wearing Muse merchandise and saying how cool they are.

    I think we've all been made sick by that kind of lame attitude in many different avenues over the years. It doesn't mean I think I'm cool, it just means I think that some people certainly aren't.

    There's guys like Ripper who I have no doubt would've seen the same thing in the past as I know he's liked them for a long time now.

    I hope they all think so, Muse albums are not supposed to be instant accessability, every one of them has grown on me. It's the opposite of disposable bubble-gum music that has to sound good now, now now!

    Yeah, i've been a fan since in 2001 when I accidently downloaded Citizen Erased off Napster, although I didn't get ultra obsessive stalkerish (I would totally go all Kathy Bates / Misery on Matthew Bellamy if I had the chance) until Absolution came out.

    It's good to see they are finally get the credit they deserve I guess, but it would be better if it was because of their first three albums, not because one of their songs was on the soundtrack for a vampire movie made for 11 year old girls, who now are all super duper Muse fans from way back when they probably only have Supermassive Blackhole and Starlight on their iPods. Was stupid at the concert in 2007, half the crowd was silent and still for the entire thing except for Starlight, there were people actually yawning and getting restless during Fury.

    Never really got the Radiohead rip off comments either, the only things they have in common is that both lead singers ripped off Jeff Buckley.

    Ah man, sucks to be you. I saw them live about 13 months ago and the crowd was in-focking-sane. Got sepperated from everyone I knew after about half an hour and ended up protecting some female from getting crushed...which came in handy later. But anyway, light show was insane and they were insane and Ksabain were supporting them who were insane (but Glas Vegas was the first support and I've never seen such a bunch of sad losers get stared off a stage before).

    I haven't listened to it yet so I don't know but I am hearing more negative reviews all the time...'sounds like some sort of pretentious queen rip-off' was one report :( .

    Good first song to accidently download.


    Anyway, I'm a massive Muse and am pretty satisfied with the new album. It's not at the standard of Origin of Symmetry or Absolution for me but it's a step up from Black Holes and Revelations which disappointed me.

    Exogenesis is indeed fantastic.
