Muse : Dead Star/In Your World

An understated return by their usual standards, all told...

Muse  : Dead Star/In Your World

Japes aplenty round at Muuuuuse's baronial pad, where the lads take time off from howling into the void to record a couple of new tracks for this double a-side of reliably humungous daftness.

'Dead Star' is pleasingly heavy, betrays a keen interest in the commercial success ofTool

, and has a lurching, crashing bit at the end during which the band can jump on each other's heads at gigs. Not much of a tune, of course.

'In Your World', meanwhile, features a fiddly guitar riff almost certainly influenced by Johann Sebastian Bach's 1708 smash, 'Toccata & Fugue In D Minor' and a vocal by Matt Bellamy that's oddly reminiscent of Brett Anderson being burned at the stake. An understated return by their usual standards, all told.
