I love the slide guitar part at the start, and when that tremolo riff kicks in is just
Although I do think that the heavy part didn't last long enough, still a great song

Lol, yep! But I think the vocal delivery and even lyrics are much better here; it becomes kind of pained, haunting, and wistful.

Just listened to this song for the first time, and now I can't get Explorers out of my head for some reason.

To me something seems odd with the timing when the tremolo comes in.

I really hope there's some good imagery if they do a lyric video of it, I was kind of disappointed by The Handlers lack of imagery during the solo which it really needed. Then again it is just a lyric video.
This is pretty much what's suggested by the lyrics as well. So it does make sense narratively - just less so musically.

I hope we get a lyric video of this to be honest, will be pretty cool to see what they'd do with it

I love it - shame the heavier part of the song was so short. The rest of the song could be part of a movie soundtrack or something similar, had a very large and epic feel to it. The only real let down was the over-hype it received for being known as 'Citizen Erased 2', there are some likenesses but The Globalist just feels too different.

Yeah if feels a bit tacked on just to give the heavy bit some variety

When the piano part begins for a moment it seems to me that it's United States of Eurasia being played

I'm sorry for the Radiohead comparisons but every time I hear The Globalist I just think of this
