Muse is the band that has been voted as “the best band in the world by the U.K. public” on 10 different occasions, including top spot on The Guardian’s list of “The Best British Bands Ever.” MUSE has put out consistently outstanding records and lyrics that are worth pondering over long after you’ve finished listening to their newest record, Drones .
But what’s most interesting about this band is their music and the very special way it is used as a vehicle of rebellion against the New World Order.
As you can hear in their music, they are angry and they are using their platform like no other artist out there today to decry government corruption, social injustice, war, greed and everything else that is plaguing our planet.
Their message is clear: the world has been hijacked by an invasive force that seeks to control every aspect of our lives.
Muse’s words and chords are meant to help us understand what this party is (the “Global Domination Agenda”) and how to fight it. They teach us how to reclaim our sovereignty, regain freedom and power over our own lives. The lyrics, music and videos are all a way of showing us how easily we can reverse this oppression, enslavement, propaganda and mind control.
Therefore Muse is very much in the tradition of artists like Bob Marley who used reggae music to spread messages of social justice, political awareness, world peace and freedom.
In fact when you hear “uTErReMeNt,” the opening track off their War Child Benefit live DVD…
You will hear a windchime sound repeatedly coupled with a “humming” sound—both symbols of peace (as we have written about before ).
The theme of peace is continued throughout the album and video, “Drones.”
And no wonder. Muse’s latest album, Drones , is a protest against war-making and drone warfare.
We will explain exactly what this song (and album) is protesting against in this article.
I have written a lot about Muse’s lyrics, especially their political and philosophical messages in several articles (see a full list here ).
In fact last year I wrote an article titled ” 15 Singles that Prove Muse Has Some Serious Message Behind Their Lyrics .

I love almost every track on here, lots of good energy, though a bit short, but there’s a lot packed in here
gestern pünktlich am Erscheinungstag geliefert und WOW: ist ein sensationelles Album! MUSE erfindet sich halt immer wieder neu und während die letzten 3 Alben eher “Liebe auf den 2. Blick” waren, überzeugt dieses sofort und ich liebe diese Band einfach und sind geniale Musiker; allen voran Matt Bellamy! Song 3 erinnert stark an den Sound & Vibe von QUEEN. Song 5, 7 und 8 gehören zu meinen absoluten favourites (“Verona”: einfach nur genial und sentimental!), Song 9 ist MUSE in gewohnter alter Manier, aber auch alle anderen Lieder sind klasse und Song 10 der krönende Abschluss. Was soll ich sagen: ganz klare Kaufempfehlung♡. Einzigartiger klitzekleiner Kritikpunkt: 10 Songs sind fast zu wenig und hätte mir 2 oder 3 mehr gewünscht 😉

Really pleased with this new album love every single track on it I have had it pretty much on repeat since It arrived on Friday. It seems to capture the mood of the country perfectly at this moment with all the frustration about wars, governments who suppress their people and the rich getting richer whilst the poor are left behind. It is quite a short album clocking in at 38 minutes but quality control is spot on no fillers on here. Only disappointment for me is that I can’t go to see them live next year due to my ill health. These tracks will sound great in Muse’s live set.
Love this. Euphoria really sounds like a Our Time Is Running Out. That aside, it’s Muse and the last track really sums everything up! I think this album is long overdue.
Muse has been my favorite band since 2007/2008. I started listening to them during the Black Holes and Revelations era. For those who don’t know- every album from Muse is very different from one another. Muse is always trying out new things but they always but their own twist to make it Muse. Matt Bellamy had previously said that this album was going to be a “Best of Muse” album meaning that every song would be new but would have parts from other Muse eras. He was spot on! There are so many songs on here that remind of of “Old Muse” (Origin of Symmetry and Absolution). There are a few piano heavy songs on here and I love them! I personally rank this album as their 3rd best (Origin is my favorite followed by Absolution). There isn’t an album by Muse that I don’t like. This album feels very complete in comparison to some of their recent albums and it tells a whole story. This album was inspired by the worldly events that were going on in 2020 and 2021. I truly believe that there is at least 1 song on this album that anyone will enjoy.
Nuovo album per il gruppo rock alternativo britannico. Eccellente, eccellenti gli effetti sonori, eccellente la registrazione. Dei 10 brani contenuti nel disco 9 sono altamente rock ed uno “Ghosts” è eseguito solamente con tastiere, basso e voce, senza alcuna ritmica.Le atmosfere, anche nei brani più hard, sono come al solito idilliache. Forse uno dei migliori album.Unica nota negativa la durata di poco superiore ai 37 minuti.Un disco assolutamente da non perdere.
Dieses Album ist für mich ein musikalisches Kunstwerk in Perfektion. Dass dieses Album so gut werden würde, hatte ich als Muse Fan gehofft. Besonders stark finde ich die Unterschiedlichkeit der Stücke und die Intensität der transportierten Gefühle.Auch die Texte sind hervorragend. Die Beschreibung zu dieser CD finde ich sehr gut.

I thought this was going to be an ok album wont stand down was in my top 10 when i first heard it so i thought it would be at least 4 good songs i could listen to but im happy to say i was wrong this cd will be the only cd allowed in my car for at least 2 months straight.
As a long-standing Muse fan, I was a little disappointed with some of their latter material; it seemed a bit too safe and commercial. This album, however is a return to heavy, wild and less self-conscious Muse. I’ve been trying not to sing the last track out loud in my local supermarket, but it’s difficult! It’s such an ear worm. I can’t name the track as Amazon won’t let me. Not a duff track on the album, in my opinion, and has made driving around, singing my head off, possible again.
