Not sure what's up with the link above but here's another one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d55ELY17CFM

Verses are kinda weak, and the verse lyrics are literally nursery-tier rhymes but the chorus progression is solid. Definitely one of the better Muse choruses I've heard in a while. And the aggression is certainly a nice change of pace

Not a big fan of the verses but I'm actually intrigued to hear the new album now and I haven't felt that way since black holes. The heavier riffs reminded me of Stockholm Syndrome. But the verses are a little too imagine dragons

The band's heart is in the right place by ramping up the heaviness again, but the verses here are awful and the riffs are very flat. The chorus is great. We'll see what the album brings, but this is just alright.

Something about Muse's songwriting on newer songs just doesn't work. This has all the elements of a great muse song from Origin of Symmetry but I just feel like it doesn't go anywhere.

Also am I the only one who found Matt Bellamy's vocal performance on this track utterly lifeless and kinda buried in the mix?

The problem is that their lyrics have descended to the point of banality (and they were never particularly original to begin with), they lack drive/purpose (whereas their older stuff was very politically motivated), and since the last time they pieced together a cohesive album was Black Holes, any heavier stuff just feels like a cheap trick to draw fans back into another horrible electro-pop exercise.

At their peak (OoS --> Black Holes), this band was incredible. Arguably one of my favorites ever. However, it was a sharp and sudden fall from grace and they've unfortunately never recovered.

IMO this is Bellamy's least annoying vocal performance maybe ever. And this has riffs. I might even end up listening to this album if this is a good indicator of how it sounds.

@Sowing: Yeah I remember Absolution being released, that was so exciting at the time and despite it being quite different from OoS I loved it just as much. Black Holes too back then, it wasn’t quite everything I wanted but there were some choice cuts and I played the thing to death. These were huge events for me.

Now I only check their newer material out of curiosity, a feeling of obligation to my past self and that tiny glimmer of hope that they might become marginally respectable again. I no longer hold out much hope of that ever happening, it’s been a good while since that hope evaporated tbh.

lmfao for real

this song was awful enough that i immediately backtracked to Drones out of morbid curiosity, and the opener sounded like the best thing i had ever heard. i guess falling into a downward spiral means that all your work ages well relative to what comes next

Sounds pretty lifeless and dull to me. As someone else said here, the heavy part just feels like "Hey, we're doing the heavy stuff again, just the way you liked it two decades ago!"

I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's this feeling that a committee is writing these songs to appeal to certain demographics instead of a band letting their creative juices flow.

It's not completely fucking awful I guess, but to all the ppl pointing out how this has riffs: What are your standards these days? these are some of the blandest riffs you could hear in 2022. "Plug in baby" has riffs, "Hysteria" has riffs. These are some generic metalcore riffs you would find in a practice book.

As a pretty invested Muse fan I’ve come to terms we’re never getting peak Muse back but for modern Muse I actually dig this track. No sense in looking for deep lyrics anymore. This song is how I wish the rest of Drones sounded after Dead Inside. apparently the producer of the new album recently tweeted “#ITGETSHEAVIER” so we’ll see what that means.

Also, Resistance >>> Black Holes & I’m tired of the disrespect.

I'm game for heavier Muse, I just hope the songwriting keeps up. Also, for whatever the record is worth, Muse never had deep lyrics so much as compelling ones.

This was so close to being the best thing they’ve written in just over 15 years, it was just that weak-ass chorus letting it down.

Matt seems incapable of writing a song that doesn’t have some sort of operatic theme to it.

It's a big improvement over Simulation Theory, but compared to the band's peak - or even highlights from Drones (Reapers, The Handler) - this falls pretty flat. The fact that "it gets heavier" is promising, though.

Muse. Yet another one of the shining lights from our teenage years that have let us down and they get a lot of 'hate' for it.

Admittedly the guitar tone sounds huge on good headphones and bass goes hard as usual.

Absolutely tepid, mass-produced drum sound and gridded to death like most releases these days, but some satisfyingly rhythmic bass drum patterns.

Blandest, most annoyingly vanilla lyrics you could imagine. It actually feels like the intelligent Bellamy is patronising us. Unwelcome hibbidy-bippidy flow on the verse and a par chorus.

It ends with their 'big show' version of metalcore that might be exciting to a normie but feels like a Sunday drive to any seasoned metalhead.

The blatant, market researched appropriation is brazen like the borrowing of dub step wobbles on Madness; a genre blowing up at the time of that tracks release.
