But the synths and backing vocals sound studio perfect . There may well be a live element, but like Dig Down, it sounds like there is a big studio element too. Whatevs. It would sound 328509809582093903x better if they roughed it up a bit.

The backing vocals are very unlike the studio version.

Having now heard this song on the radio alongside some stuff I was enjoying listening to in the same kind of style, I think I can honestly say I would like this song, a lot, if Matt's vocals weren't terrible in it.
Seriously, wtf is going on with how he's singing this song?

Considering most synths are computer programmed sounds these days anyway it wouldn't be hard for them to recreate that. And the backing vocals don't sound that similar at all but any similarities would be the fact Chris did some layers on the track.

There’s also not a lot of room for inflection when you’re shouting “oh” at that range. You kinda have to hit it the same way every time, which is why you hear that exact same “whoa” in every rock song this decade.

I would say that has more to do with the fact that every popular rock song uses the chorus "whoa", instead of just doing...anything else.

I've cooled on it. I don't dislike it by any means but the new song sheen has worn off. I think it'll make a fine addition to their live arsenal, however. It has energy and a big sound and audiences like to go "woah", especially us Muse fans! One of our most endearing qualities if how we sing along to the guitar in KoC but kind of drop off once the lyrics kick in.

The first time I listened to it, I kinda felt it was not good enough but when I tried to repeat it again and again, oh man... I do really love this song! It stuck in my head until now I can't stop listening to it

and.... this is way way way better than dig down

Just repeating a simple melody over and over again is a cheap trick, the fact that it then gets stuck in your head is not an indication of quality.

If you say "I really do love this song" I assume there's more reasons.

The vocals really could've used another approach...

I wonder if Chris could've sung it

sucks too cuz I thought Matt's vocals were top notch on Drones and were fine on Dig Down (which I still don't hate), but here they aren't very convincing in the verses, especially the part where he talks about moving to Canada...
