Single Review: Muse – Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)

I was left cliff hanging recently when the band premiered a 30-second teaser of their new single for the Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack last week. As a big supporter of the band, I’m really pleased about them being given the chance to release the lead single off the soundtrack. The band’s music has been used in the Twilight movies since its first installment where ‘Supermassive Black Hole’ became a hit – which kind of gained Muse a worldwide audience. Now, their new single ‘Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)’ will slowly put Muse into a bigger pop culture exposure. The single has been released last night, May 17th at 730pm (BST) and is now available to download digitally.

To be roughly honest, I didn’t believe in the track’s potential at first listen. It seemed very underground and a lot gloomy for a lead single, which I find boring to say the least. What’s surprising is that it evolves as the track progress into something likable, rock, anthemic extravaganza. It’s actually one of those songs that puts on a slow start and eventually takes you away when verging into its penultimate brilliance. The guitar bridge is an absolute treat to the senses followed by the rhythmic pulsation of the melancholic ambience delivered by the piano. It’s not the best Muse track yet, but I’m convinced of its credibility to pull off a hit.

RELEASED: May 17, 2010 (Digitally)
