I like some of it a lot, but Matt you do know that just because you say "drones" a lot doesn't make the album cohesive, don't you? It's important to me that you know that.

Despite Dead Inside and Reapers being two of the best post-Black Holes Muse tracks, I always find myself wanting to turn this album off half way through and listen to the records that Drones is so desperately trying to recapture the spirit of. Furthermore, Drones makes me worried about the band's understanding of their own music and fanbase. Hard rock riffs aren't what made albums like Origin Of Symmetry and Absolution great, imagination, passion, willingness to do whatever ridiculous bullshit a 25 year old musician wanted were.

Favorite Tracks: Dead Inside, Reapers, The Handler, Mercy

Least Favorite Tracks: Psycho, Drones
