Listening Post

I haven't really been into Muse since 2006's Black Holes and Revelations. It was a decent album -- nowhere near as brilliant as Absolution but a hell of a lot less insufferable than pretty much everything that's come after it. I blame the succubine influence of Kate Hudson, who, according to Almost Famous, was supposed to improve a band's music, not make it worse.

Anyway, I have to admit that the new Muse single, if nothing else, breaks their recent trend of releasing thoroughly irritating -- or, in the case of their song for the London Olympics, unimaginably awful -- music.

Here's the brand new video for Madness.

This comment has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but I'm always drawn to the quote by Pharmacan in which he/she claims that in a more civilized time you'd be confined to a place for the criminally insane or marginalized from civilized society, and I think, is this deliberately ironic? I doubt it, but still...So, while this person is undeniably wrong, the quote itself cracks me the hell up. I love people so steeped in their own shit they can't smell it.
