The 2nd Law: Unsustainable
The 2nd Law: Isolated System
2012, For their latest album THE 2ND LAW, Muse made things easy for themselves. For the first time since the dawn of their career in smalltown England eighteen years ago, all three members were living in the same place during the making of an album. And this time, Muse had the experience born of self-producing THE RESISTANCE to apply their studio knowledge to creating the album they really wanted to make. It was about saving aggro, and conserving energy. And, appropriately, it was about THE 2ND LAW: an album titled after and thematically influenced by the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which concerns the inevitable wasting of energy within a closed system. It was about letting themselves go and enjoying themselves. Muse, after all, had earned it.
