I want someone to vote Drill Sergeant or JFK as best track just for the lolz.

Anyway... still haven't heard Drones (the title track). But as for the rest, favourite was The Handler, followed by Reapers. Least favourite was Revolt.

Dead Inside - 7.5/10
Psycho - 7/10
Mercy - 6/10
Reapers - 9/10
The Handler - 9.5/10
Defector - 8/10
Revolt - 5/10
Aftermath - 5.5/10
The Globalist - 7.5/10

Rating:
1. Origin
2. Absolution
3. Black Holes
4. Showbiz/Drones (perhaps Drones slightly ahead, but not sure yet)
5. The 2nd Law
6. Resistance

Drones = BHAR
Absolution
OOS
The Resistance
2nd Law

To be fair I'm counting b-sides in my head a little, which is part of the reason I'm such a Showbiz fanboy. The gap between Absolution and BHAR is really small though.

Dead Inside 8/10-Fantastic vocals and keeps growing on me surprisingly. Classic at this point.

Psycho 7/10-Is a bit longer than it needs to be but it's so punchy and in your face that it's forgivable. That riff is the new Plug in Baby.

Mercy 7/10- A very straightforward song, a lot like Starlight but way better in my opinion.

Reapers 10/10- One of my favorite songs they've ever done, immense energy and incredible guitar. The chorus is catchy, the solo is fun to listen to and the outro is probably the heaviest thing they've ever recorded.

The Handler 9.5/10- Another great rocker. Recalls to the Absolution days and the reigning falsettos are really at show here.

(the rest of the songs are based off a single listen so to be taken with a grain of salt)

Defector 8.5/10- Heavy rocker that harkens back to Dragon Attack by Queen. The solo is one of the greatest they've done, the riff is a headbanger. Lyrics are a bit cheesy but I think it suits the song.

Revolt 4/10-Super generic song. Reminds me of American Pie. It's not the worst thing i've ever heard but....I probably wont listen to it again.

Aftermath 8/10- I love it. Matt's never sung a song in this fashion before and he plays it off so well. A solemn track with some awesome guitar work. Reminds me like a mix of Dark Side of the Moon and Achtung Baby style ballads.

The Globalist 7.5/10-Super disappointing, I felt like I would have loved it if it wasn't hyped as much as it was. The beginning is great, the heavy middle section is one of my favorite things on the album. Then it all goes wrong with the final 3 minutes, it's not bad at all but it just gets built up into USOE part 2. It's like if you're having sex with Scarlett Johansson and the foreplay goes all well, then you get naked and have 2 minutes of the most incredible sex you've ever had, and just as you're about to climax she hops off and transforms into that one ex you had 5 years ago that you never really liked but stayed with because you were comfortable with her, and she passes out immediately. Great song on it's own, but way overhyped.

Drones 6/10-I actually found it pretty interesting but I doubt i'll be listening to it often.



My album rankings:

Absolution
OOS
BHAR
Resistance/Drones
Showbiz
T2L
I agree with your ratings except would swap reapers and handler.

It's ok. You can get through this. Reading between the lines, it's clear that you've got strength. You've got soul. You've felt pain. But you also feel love. Use this experience. You can grow. You can grow. And you can revolt against this song.

That's the highest I've ever seen someone rank T2L and the lowest for BHaR

Every credit for going against the grain

Not going to rate songs out of 10 because I haven't listened to them enough and still yet to listen to the album in full without breaks between tracks plus my opinions always change.

Overall I am very happy with this album - I am actually a bit sad that it has blown the 2nd law out of the water for me for now at least and I have zero interest in any of those songs currently and probably for a while which is a shame but probably due to 'last album syndrome' like when you play a pop song form 10 years ago and love it but can't bear to hear the ones that were in the charts last year

Dead inside - always liked this one more than psycho - odd start to the album but very slick and trumps previous songs of it's type like madness and UD for me. 'leave me out in the cold' vocals will always make me shiver

psycho - absolutely knocked my socks off live, best sing along of a riff of my life - find the track itself gets a bit boring after a while but cannot wait to see it again live

Mercy - probably one of my least favourites. It's nice, very catchy, probably good fun live but nothing special, doesn't give me ermagawd emotions and it is very similar to starlight and could easily fall into a trilogy of error...

Reapers - currently I like the handler more than this track but I think over time it will change as reapers is so incredibly perfect - like oh my it's old school muse down to a T. It's exciting it's sexy and again it was BADASS LIVE

The Handler - ok so for the first time in my life I welled up listening to a muse song for the first time and it was surprisingly this one and not aftermath (which is more my kind of thing fabri pls explorers 4 lyfe <3) It's amazing. My new Hysteria. I loved it 100% from the first listen to hats off to you again Bellamy!

Defector - wasn't that fussed about this one at first but after hearing the JFK transition and outro it's pretty super. Love the riff, again going to be massive live, and can never get too much queeny vocals!

Revolt - I heard this after reading 'revolting' comments about it which was a shame but I don't think it's that bad - yeh it sounds like it was written for a musical or by Gerard Way but it's not boring, it's fun and weird and it doesnt kill me, I don't think I will skip it

Aftermath - this is so westlife it hurts all it needed was a keychange. Luckily I love westlife so this one is a guilty pleasure gem for me

The Globalist - favourite track on the album. This is the muse I love, its the reason I fell in love with them in the first place the way they can interpret classical music into their songs and make it their own . Yeh it may be branded as a rip off or a mess but I think it's a work of art and it works for me. Love a bit of nimrod choir :P

Drones - not sure how I feel about this one. It's nice that Matt has tried something new and a good end to the album but as a stand alone track it's a bit meh.

overall I think that lyrically muse are pretty crap at concept albums. Matt has hit us over the head with the story line he may as well not bother to explain it in interviews, used the word drones far too many times but on the other hand I think musically they have done a brilliant job and I have never been too fussed about lyrics so I am in conclusion very happy with album seven

YAY!
