He could just be like... drawing a comparison? The fans call things sequels all the time.

It's just they might have bought into some fans' mentality of comparing new material versus old material ("Argh, old stuff is still better, yada yada...") and they're replicating it in order to appease to them again.
A dangerous line of thought, I think.

Except, even excluding the fact that Dig Down feels like it samples Madness, he's called two songs from Drones sequels?
It's a recipe for disappointment, and makes me feel like they don't even try to be original anymore.
(See also: Mercy and Starlight, the entirety of Psycho, etc)

I thought the Handler was one of their best work on the album.

I'm hot and cold on it, I guess. It's absolutely not a bad song, but I have a hard time knowing if I'd like it as much as I did if it wasn't for the nostalgia at the end. Otherwise, it's a pretty long build up, especially with how repetitious that solo is.

I could nitpick the song like any other but the general consensus and one I'd agree with myself is that it did a good job at doing their heavy style in an era that really lacks it.

I feel less like I'm nitpicking, and more just saying that - while I'd agree it's a good song - I've felt, since I listened to it more and more, that it apes an older style, but doesn't manage to recapture the emotion and what made that style good in the first place.
For that reason, I much prefer DI, and even Mercy, which make me feel something.

I think it's just starting to feel like a bit of a cheap tactic to keep fans interested that hasn't lived up to the comparison once (The Handler's solid but it was never gonna be anywhere near Showbiz) so becomes a little eyeroll-y. And if it isn't intentional, then it's just kinda naive and maybe suggests a regressive approach to writing and creativity behind the scenes as well.

Also worth noting that Matt says there's gonna be more stuff in 2018 than '17, in terms of singles/videos. So hopefully one in Feb, another over the summer, then maybe another around Autumn/Winter if the album still isn't out.

"More than 2017" could be two songs, couldn't it?

Easily. I guess I'm just hoping for a song by next summer at this point, lol.

Was hoping it was Fourth Contagion so there could be a First, Second and Third Contagion too.

Maybe this one will have a thousand hour video (I hope for just an audio only one (gotta say I love Mercy's lyric video though)).
