It’s a montage of the best of Muse. It’s a new take on all of those types of genres that we’ve touched on in the past.
However, this reference to the past comes across as somewhat problematic at times. As Paolo Ragusa touches on:
The fact that our global political crisis has given Muse’s audience more context for a dystopian record means that the band needs to be very careful about how it addresses these woes, the way it poses solutions, the specific problems that Bellamy is choosing to investigate. And unfortunately, Will of the People is — perhaps on purpose — not very careful about such things.
Whereas Arcade Fire’s return to the past seems somewhat comforting, I am not exactly sure how I feel about Will of the People.
