    Ok this is interesting:

    Adam Lambert of American Idol singing Muse. It's not bad either for a cover. I know this isn't related to the new album, but this is basically the official Muse thread so I felt it best to put it here.

    Something about his voice just doesn't seem very suited to the song.

    It's too pitch perfect for the song. Bellamy has a roughness to his voice that gives Starlight more expression...Adam's version (while good) is "over sung".

    Good cover, but he's not going to top Matt, ever. The man has a ridiculous voice, especially live.

    I love how deliberate his vocals are in "Uprising". It's pretty different for him.

    I wish I could use the word I'm thinking of to describe this, but because of the rules I can't. :rolleyes:

    They're clearly going for something VERY over the top here.

    Yeah, that's it. It sounds a bit too fluid. He's obviously a really good singer though.


    As for the art, I can't say I'm sure what I think.

    Yeah the dude doesn't sound 'rock' at all, he's hitting the notes, it's just a tone issue.

    I mastered the bass riff to Uprising, it's pretty simple. I'll be uploading the video later this week. :D

    I personally like the album cover, and I'm loving Uprising. It's sick.

    Uprising is definitely a grower, I love the chorus.

    Same. It reminds me of classic progressive rock albums, and that my friend...is a good thing.

    I loved Lambert's version of "Starlight." I'm always amazed at how great his voice is.

    Definitely. Plus, I'm a sucker for nice designs with a lot of colors. Seems like it's going to be a ridiculously over-the-top prog album in that tradition.. I'm looking forward to it.

    I did not enjoy Lambert's version of Starlight. His voice is too pretty.

    seems like the queen-esque sound can be heard throughout most of the tracks....but since I personally love that I think I'm gonna be pre-order this bad boy. Though Shadey is right that when it comes to Muse....30 second snippets are definitely not enough to judge each track.

    Yeah, I was just about to post that they're up. They're interesting, I hope there's more to this album than what I hear.

    MK Ultra, I Belong to You, and the Exogenesis are all that I really can say I like judging from the 30 second clips, though, and of course Uprising and US of Eurasia which are out.

    Way too much Queen influence. I think I'll be giving this album a miss...
