I had an appointment and now I'm working a mid-shift.
It's been a bummer of a day, so I wasn't really in the mood on break.
I'm especially not in the mood for "Muse does xtian music" today.

Reading people's reactions, however, has been interesting and amusing.

I also still haven't listened to New Kind of Kick, though. Maybe I should start there. :LOL:

I should have clarified "singing about God in a non-blasphemous way."

I'm 99% sure Matt realized he created a bit of a gospel song so he decided to add "god" to the lyrics.

There was always that IG post with the Bible quote. :LOL:

Serpent is just NOT in the mood right now.

I'd say it's about the same way that he's always sang about God.

The line is "When God decides to look the other way".

That's actually a bit confusing considering the song's about Trump, right? :LOL:

BigGeorge 18-05-2017 09:11 PM

The next line is literally "And a clown takes the throne" so yes.

No. He clearly sings about Gond.

Wowzers.

Er... I have a feeling you might like NKOK more.
You know the times you were criticising Revolt for inciting to rise up in a silly way considering the band's background?
Well, there's also a phrase in Dig Down that goes like this:
"With a gun to your head / You must find a way".

I wonder where he's sung about this before......


I'll show you a God
Falls asleep on the job
And how can we win,
When fools can be kings

Truth.

I genuinely like it though. It's catchy (probably because of aforementioned George Michael comparisons). It's uplifting (lol). And it sounds fucking LOVELY through a good pair of headphones.

It really is stock-standard 2017 mainstream-appeal Muse. Goes straight in the vein of Madness and Undisclosed Desires. A little beige, but a decent enough song, and very standard for their current sound and the kind of singles they're putting out these days.

In my opinion, definitely not the worst thing they've ever done. Not by a long shot. Wouldn't mind hearing it live, myself. I'll take it :)

aleluman 18-05-2017 10:18 PM

The climax is way too bland and boring compared to madness which, while similar, is clearly the better song.

bjmort 18-05-2017 10:30 PM

Seriously am I the only person hearing freedom by George Michael?
