^ Do you mean that in a good way or a bad way? I feel the need to ask before I go listen to it.

 

Good way. When I heard 'MUSE DOES DUBSTEP' I envisioned some sort of hideous Skrillex-y mash up. And it's not like that.

 

And with the concept and vibe of the song, what they've done is really clever. It's destructive and decidedly chaotic. Like things are breaking down.

 

Added bonus: for it not being cheesy.

 

Minus points: don't think it will be played live or, if it is, it will be the walk-on/off intro. I can't see it being replicated easily on stage. It requires far too many Macbooks.

 

I also ordered the full deluxe boxset because it looks so pretty. And it gives you more than MX did for a lower price.

UGH THE STRING PART. :dazzled: Seriously, I could listen to the beginning for ages.

 

As much as they say it's influenced by dubstep, there sure isn't a whole lot of it in there. I suppose most of Muse Nation thinks that's a good thing.

 

Anyway, I think the "un-sus-tain-a-ble" robot bit is my least favorite part.

+1. especially the first line. :P

I don't love it, but it's far from the worst thing they've done. Heck, it's probably the best song they've put out since 2009. (in other words, that's just a nice way of me saying "This song doesn't completely suck like Prague, Survival, and Neutron Star Collision.")

 

I'm glad the rest of the album isn't like this, but I much prefer this "experimentation" of original sounds rather than trying to mimic Queen for the billionth time.

I love Unsustainable! After hearing Survival I was very worried because I hated it. I never liked Neutron Star Collision either, but Unsustainable has restored my faith in Muse. Rejoice! Some of the songs on The 2nd Law sound really cool too. Can't wait to hear Supremacy, Save Me and Liquid State.

If there's not a badass massive robot in the live setup I am so going to be pissed.

 

And it struck me what 'dubstep' it sounded like... It sounds like one of the tracks off Nine Inch Nails 'Ghosts I-IV'. And that was industrial electronic metal? :dozey:

 

Oh and hey, this is amazing:

I listened to it a few more times and I no longer think that it's as bad as I thought and I like it more than Survival now. But still, it's just a "normal" Muse song with some random guitar drops and electronic voices. Sorry

If you pre order The 2nd Law now you get the full video to Unsustainable!

 

...or you can watch it here:

 

WTF IS THIS?! :stunned:

 

 

 

Sorry but I don't get it and I don't like it.

This album keeps getting better and better for me. I listen to nearly every type of music practically, and for me, Prelude/Survival and Unsustainable are effing amazing songs. The problem that has haunted dubstep since the very beginning is that nearly every dubstep song sounds the same. Only few have broken that curse. Chase & Status and Skrillex are a few, and it seems like Muse has too, with actual instruments aswell! Prelude/Survival made the past 16 days awesome, just one of many reasons why this Olympiad is one of the best and most spectacular in history.

 

Looking forward to Madness and The 2nd Law, and if we're lucky, more promo singles like Unsustainable, and if we're extremely lucky, a few leaks!

I think Unsustainable will sound better when we are able to listen to it together with part 2: Isolated System. I do enjoy it on its own though (mainly the middle part with Matt's vocals :wacky:).

Am I the only person here who actually likes Survival? :cry:
