The band’s latest endeavor, "We Are All Where We Belong"—mixed by legendary engineer Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2, The Cure)—chronicles the many different emotions that a person goes through in a break up: sadness, resentment, self-doubt, but ultimately hope and the indescribable joy and freedom that comes from the realization of making the right decision.
"It is easily the most personal thing I've ever written," Muse said. "It is, essentially, a break up record, only the romance that's ending was between myself and religion."
Musically, the album maintains the band's richly arranged, consistently catchy pop hooks and encompassing vocal harmonies but explores new territory with full orchestral arrangements and new sonic textures. Lyrically, the album is a departure from the former "Songs For Staying In" but the juxtaposition of heavier lyrical content and their trademarked upbeat sound makes for an engaging, above-the-cut musical experience.
