Double vinyl LP pressing. England’s masters of maximalist rock expand their sound even further on their sixth album, The 2nd Law. Continuing to draw on electronic influences like synth pop and dubstep, Muse looked to artists like Justice and Skrillex as they sought out new ways to open up their already grandiose symphonic rock sound even further. The album also finds bassist Chris Wolstenholme stepping into the vocal spotlight for the first time on a pair of songs written by him about his personal struggles with alcoholism.

Description

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2012 album from the British Alt-Rock trio. Muse didn’t set out to make the most gloriously ambitious album of their career. How could they have? the band who dreamt up “Supermassive Black Hole,” Knights of Cydonia and the three part “Exogenesis” symphony were already well versed in going One Louder. Any wilder, any further out there, and Muse would risk incineration by a dwarf star of their own making. But you don’t become one of the biggest bands on this planet by sitting on your hands. So when Muse approached the making of their sixth studio album, they wouldn’t stint on the choirs, strings and horn sections. And be reassured: guitar shredding, piano thumping, orchestra arranging, book chewing, big thinking Matt Bellamy, as the band’s chief songwriter, didn’t lower his sights from the Big Picture nor ignore the Precious Details. And nor were the trio afraid of giving space to a brilliant new element to their sound; songs written and sung by bass player Chris Wolstenholme.
