Heh, as much as I like the song, I'd never say that people who dislike it doesn't embrace the change. Because, tbf, the song isn't exactly anything unheard and it's actually pretty derivative. That's almost a fact.

They released a video of a live version of this song. Granted it was in a venue where people didn't come for Muse but it's such a static performance. But it's not because of the venue or the boys' energy level. It's because this song is devoid of pace and energy. There's nothing to move to.

If you mean that New York one, the instruments were playback, which might have something to do with it.

I just don't get how they could legitimately think this would be a good song to work with, let alone release.

It's another grab for US mainstream fame; that's why the subject matter is what it is. It honestly feels like playing the serious emotional climate in my country for a quick paycheck.

The sad part is, it makes it seem like they don't know how to do that, and just attempted to ape Madness trying to replicate that success.

Yeah, this is the sort of music the mainstream are enjoying for whatever reason. Bland, boring pop. Just a skip over to the Muse Facebook forums will tell how popular this shit is..

Yupp, or just look at the "Thumps up" at YouTube.

About the "I don't like change" point. I think it is not valid to generalize, here. Everyone needs change and new things to a certain extent. For some it's more, for some it's less. There are people who travel the world and others staying in their flat. But the ones in the flat will also buy new flowers from time to time, read the news or cook an unknown dish.

For me, I liked the hauling guitars, Matt's falsetto, the piano parts, and also some of the electronic stuff. Take the B-Sides on Hullabaloo, e.g. Could the bands' sound be more different from what it is like in the present? Yet, I don't want them to reproduce the past, and I think no one wants this. One has to respect the direction they have taken (more pop, more glam) but one does not automatically need to like it.

At the end of day, it's not so much a single song that counts so much, anymore. It's rather the memories you have. Like, singing with 300 Muse fans at London's Trafalgar square. This is something, no one will ever take from you.

It's not really about pop, or about a change in direction. I really, really like Follow me, and DI. I don't like Dig Down. It's just plain boring, and Matt's vocals at the beginning are tough to get through.

Exactly! I dislike a bit FM, but I love DI and enjoy Madness. At the same time I find Dig Down dreadful. I don't get people using counterarguments like "hurr durr you should realise they evolve and change their style go back to Abso or OoS hurr durr". It's not about the style we're complaining.

Match of the Day

Well I had missed the announcement of 'Dig Down' and was watching the end of year highlights to the Premier League as Match of the Day's titles were playing out when I heard the unmistable sound of a new Muse song being used as the end credit music on Sunday night.

10 minutes later I had bought it and had it blaring out from my ipod dock, much to the annoyance of my wife who had been in bed for an hour!!

Yes it's a derivitive song and a little tame, even if it is meant to counter the negativaty around in the world today but it is NEW Muse music. I am gratefull for anything new at the moment as it seems a long long time since Drones.

I really like Dig Down now, though it wasn't the case the first time I heard it. But the more I hear it the more I like it! It seems I am the only one here...

I don't think it comes close to their best, but it's a decent song. I actually enjoy it quite a lot.

Their new song is like a mash-up between Madness and Reapers.
