Muse head to the Olympics

Muse, “Survival”

The 2nd Law, 2012

There’s no mistaking an Olympic song- passionate lyrics of achievement and power ride above a thunderous and stirring orchestra.

The song, which will appear on Muse’s sixth album later this year- was chosen last week as the official song of London 2012.

There are signature Muse flourishes throughout- heavy synth riffs and beats roll under the wails of a shrieking choir- but unfortunately it falls too far into ridiculousness to be anything close to rousing.
