Yep, the song itself is good but thoensolos elevate it to a higher status imo. Great example of how effective the whammy pedal can be

Yep, thats true.

I just love the transition. The way that Matt slides into the first one

It's always reminded me of the way you can hear Angus slide back down the fretboard on Back In Black on that solo .

I remember being really excited to play it on guitar until I realised how boring the rest of it is, haha! Still good enough to listen to though, and probably their best use of Queen-ish vocal harmonies since Butterflies And Hurricanes.

The layered vocals really ruin Defector for me. They're cringe-worthy and such an overused option by Matt these days (Dig Down ).

I didn't like them at first, but I do think it's one of their better uses of that kind of thing, and much better than something like USOE or Dig Down. It would obviously be better if they didn't keep trying to do it again though.

USOE is a masterpiece in comparison to the dog turd that is Dig Down.

Said it before but I don't really see the Queen comparisons in Dig Down's vocal harmonies, it's just a take on gospel.

It's valid for stuff like Defector, Eurasia, Knights, etc. but we can't just throw 'Queen' at every use of vocal harmonies

agreed. How about we start comparing them to the Eagles when they do harmonies now!

I can't think of The Eagles anymore without thinking of the Eagles of Death Metal and how they got their name

I guess it was just an easy comparison for 'over-the-top' harmonies which is what I was getting at, haha! I love vocal harmonies but I like them to be a bit more subtle. I did say Queen-ish, but yeah, I know what you're getting at, haha!

USOE is actually quite nice but I do find the ending vocals a bit off-putting. The problem with Dig Down is that it feels like mediocre chart-filler at best, and is almost ironically uninspiring. I think the reaction here has basically been about how generic mediocrity is not what a band like Muse should be aiming for.

And Matt can lay down both of the guitar solos at the end and overlap them while Dom sings from the drumset and Chris wears and cowboy hat and fake mustache to hide how much he hates this. lol.

Underrated is an understatement. Some of Matt's most personal and passionate songwriting on that thing, and the whole band holds nothing back.
In another thread I mentioned what Matt said in an interview. Apparently, I suspect all the backlash they got for "being personal" is what drove them away from their early Showbiz/OoS/Absolution days... which is sad. Their "being personal" was actually very awesome.

Muses new album, The 2nd Law their first since 2009s global chart-topper The Resistance seems to reflect this change. Bellamy is now a father and there are rare moments of reflection on several tracks.

Ive not really sung about emotions for the past two or three albums, he says. On our first album, Showbiz, I really put myself out there in a personal way and got shot down for it. Its only now I feel comfortable singing about relationships, love and fatherhood.

It's a massive part of why Dead Inside is such a good song for me. it actually feels like it means something, unlike a lot of their other recent releases. It's definitely something I missed from the earlier albums.
