Muse, Drones, Review: Broken Heart to WWIII in 52 minutes

by Rachel Baker on June 7, 2015

Muse, an English progress band, with roots back to 1994 has released a mind-blowing sci-fi concept album that takes one from the idea of a broken heart to the full on throes of WWIII in the time it takes to immerse yourself in the album. This is their seventh album and has Def Leppard producer, Mutt Lange, at the helm.

There has been talk of Muse going back to basics for their seventh album but when you are a new generation progressive rock trio with roots in Britpop, glam, electro, heavy metal, opera and classical music, basic is a relative term.

Drones is a fast moving, full blown sci-fi concept album tackling notions of the human race enslaving itself with technology, managing to take its protagonist from a broken heart to World War III in just 52 minutes of playing time.
