Woohoo! Someone who agrees with me about the new Muse.
Personally I have been a fan since I fisrt heard them, which was about half a year before they released Absolution.
Thing is, there's no album like the previous one with them, they're always trying out new stuff.
There are still a couple tracks that are "classic" Muse, but they're similar to Coldplay in that respect; they're always trying for a new sound.
It's something that I really like about them as well as bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, and really the only modern rap that I'll listen to, Jay-Z, Common, and Lupe Fiasco.
