Looking for more tunes to help you ring in the new year? Here are some albums from 2012 that you should check out if you haven’t already!
The 2nd Law
Muse have always pushed boundaries and bent genres to their creative whim, but never as effectively and triumphantly as on their latest disc The 2nd Law. This record also had the distinction of being hotly scrutinized before anyone heard a single note, thanks to a quote from lead singer Matthew Bellamy that included the word “Dubstep”. Mere mention of this genre in relation to new material sent many Muse fans into a tailspin, but those who were patient with their beloved Prog-Rockers were rewarded tenfold with an album that rocks, rolls and all around knocks the listener out. If you managed to avoid lead single ‘Madness’ or the Olympics Theme ‘Survival’ this summer, they are both worth your time as well as ‘Supremacy’ and the Prince meets Queen rocker ‘Panic Station’. The 2nd Law is a truly wonderful listening experience that will demand your attention.
