Sim­u­la­tion The­ory

WHO - - The List -

There is some­thing a lit­tle Spinal Tap about crazy Bri­tish rock­ers Muse, re­turn­ing with their eighth al­bum. As well as heav­ily or­ches­trated out­pour­ings in “Al­go­rithm” and the out-there “Pro­pa­ganda” which takes mu­si­cal themes from Prince’s “Kiss” and de­con­structs them with a jack­ham­mer, the op­er­atic ca­cophony is sup­ported by videos hark­ing to pop cul­ture icons such as Tron (“The Dark Side”), Back to the Fu­ture (“Pres­sure”) and Teen Wolf (“Some­thing Hu­man”). An a-muse-ing one – for fans.
