Working Principles

Turning to Pitchfork Media for sane musical evaluation is a bit much, but I thought they got this bit right in their review of Muse's newest album, when they lay out the band's fundamental assumptions:

1) distortion is always better than no distortion; 2) every measure of music should contain at least one drum fill; and 3) the future will be dominated by robots.

The fact that they thought those were cutting negative points pretty much explains why their opinion on the band is worthless.

Future - Present - Past
