The prospect of a new Muse album (The 2nd Law) was overshadowed by the band's dalliance with dubstep, which was a shame but not surprising in the current musical climate. When one of the world's biggest stadium-rock bands' tinkering with electronics becomes a dealbreaker, it tells you something about their fickle fans. Fortunately Muse made it work — somewhat — with singles like "Follow Me," but we doubt that the band will be selling glowsticks at the merch booths. We're guessing their going the dance route probably turned off vocal Muse proponent Glenn Beck, too.
