|My circuits have blown I know it's self imposed And all I have shared And all I have loved Is all I'll ever own But something has changed I feel so...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
Nov 9, 2018The group has scaled down a bit (how much bigger could they get?) writing, rhapsodizing and crooning about lighter topics than usual. Similarly, the group--along with co-producers Rich Costey (Interpol), Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Fiona Apple) and Timbaland (Jay-Z, Missy Elliott)--has also changed up its sound with a mix of electro-punkish riffs and sprightly beats filtered into its densely layered orchestration. ... Refocusing their ambitions in a way that won’t alienate fans but also keeps them anticipating whatever might come next.
Kerrang!Nov 7, 2018As a neon-lit tonic to Drones, Simulation Theory is bang on the money. But as an exploration of a new frontier, it's a genuinely exciting musical adventure in its own right. [10 Nov 2018, p.53]
MojoNov 7, 2018This Giorgio Moroder-soundtracking-Black Mirror approach isn't always successful. ... The slick AOR of Something Human suggests their decision to move away from riff-rock isn't wholly misjudged. [Dec 2018, p.84]
Nov 9, 2018It’s clearly leagues below what they’re capable of, but they’re at least moving forward with the styles of music that they want to create, uninhibited by expectations rooted in the past. This is essentially a synth-pop album, one that is at times exciting and unconventional and at other times tasteless and rudimentary.

Jan 16, 2019This album is great but there are two songs that I don't like. Sometimes the orchestration is too "heavy" but the most of the time it isThis album is great but there are two songs that I don't like. Sometimes the orchestration is too "heavy" but the most of the time it is magnificent and it is a pleasure to listen to this album. It is great but not a hit. I prefer The Resistance and Black Holes and Revelations, Simulation Theory come in third place with Origin of Symmetry. In this album the songs that I really listen a lot of times are The Dark Side, Algorithm, and Pressure. Good listening.… Expand

I don't know if people are getting tired of it but it just doesn't feel innovative at this point. Also, Kavinsky wants his album back.… Expand
Dec 21, 2018Lol, more **** from Muse. Embarrassing, more than they are usually embarrassing, now their gimmick is they're ridiculous on purpose. Try toLol, more **** from Muse. Embarrassing, more than they are usually embarrassing, now their gimmick is they're ridiculous on purpose. Try to cash in on Stranger Things & Sci-fi, but they kinda forgot the music. Ah, well, nothing new, then.
