ALARM’s 50 (+5) Favorite Songs of 2012

Muse: The 2nd LawMuse: “Survival” from The 2nd Law (Warner Bros., 10/2/12)

Muse: “Survival”

An extravagant track best exemplifying Muse’s bombast, London Olympics theme “Survival” plays to its operatic strengths (with a hearty dose of riff rock) like Queen. You’ve never heard the Olympics rock this hard, with deeply distorted down-slides trading with up-scaling piano, speed picking, wild drum fills, and backing choirs.
