System of a Down… Queen of the Stone Age... Radiohead… Queen… Wait, what? Oh. Yeah. There are some riffs in there but some twiddly, widdly licks and vocals that don’t so much soar as pitch toward window-shattering heights against butch, crowd-shouted backing vocals.
‘Murder and Lies’ goes even more theatrical and upstages the first track, which is so spectacularly Muse it makes the case for there being an ‘overblown, self-indulgent bollocks’ genre in the first minute of its wince-inducingly wanky four and a quarter, and feels about three times that. Really, it’s all just too much.
