Listening to it at the moment. Have it freshly loaded in the car CD player for a 2 hour road trip for work tomorrow. Couldn't come at a better time!

I agree.. Madness is a strange choice for a first single, but it's definitely growing on me more and more.

I saw and heard "The 2nd Law Unsustainable" and I absolutely fell in love with it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_SJI...e_gdata_player). Let's remember this is live instruments that are playing here. I love the groove it has going along with the robotic voice. It works. "But.. it's DubStep!!" Yeah, so? If it is, it's damn good. I did go check out Skrillex in advance to have some idea of what the hell was influencing Matt leading up to this album.

I'm looking at the big picture in how it fits in with the whole and really looking forward to hearing these tracks performed side-by-side with the rest of their library. Overall, it's a more laid-back Muse, but one that adds that dimension to the catalog.
