It's too bad Muse haven't realised that, if their fans wanted them to sound like Coldplay, they would have just been Coldplay fans all along. Not to dismiss Coldplay nor their fans but it's hard to imagine that that is what Muse fans are really looking for. Just like Coldplay fans might be a little concerned if Chris Martin and Co. launched into a spontaneous cover of Micro Cuts between Green Eyes and Yellow.

No, I'm tired of this argument. Muse have demonstrated many times that they are fully aware of what their hardcore fanbase wants them to sound like. They just aren't terribly interested in being that band anymore.

I mean, Coldplay did pretty much the same thing, building an alternative sound before gradually switching to pop, but they're so far down the road of zero fucks given that the whingers have long since moved on. Muse on the other hand keep pandering to the diehards on occasion, creating this vicious cycle of hope-disappointment which has been going on for so many years that it's become sad to watch.

The band are even trolling people now who don't get the hint.

Thing is, Muse keep trying to make the switch to pop but then complain when people in the crowd at shows only know the pop and don't mosh or aren't active enough. It's like even they don't know what they want.

I will say though that, from the admittedly little I've seen so far, this tour seems to be the first where Matt actually looks pretty content and comfortable with the more laid-back, casual pop crowds so maybe the full switch is finally around the corner.

I don't think they'll switch totally to pop anytime soon. Not with the next album, at least, which they've claimed it may be diverse.

Full evidence of what direction this new album may end up in may well come with the next song tbf. Although it may well be this staggered writing/release lends itself more easily to a sonically diverse routine.

I've decided this is dangerously close to Muse's worst song ever. It is quite simply; shite.

You make some decent points but I don't fully buy the argument that Coldplay were ever very alternative. [Whatever alternative actually means] When they introduced themselves to the world with a song like "Yellow", I wouldn't say that they had much of a transition to make for a pop sound. IMO Coldplay have pretty much always been a pop/rock band.

The 2nd Law was diverse. While I do like the album overall, it does have a "throw everything at the wall and see what sticks" feel. And one touring cycle later, Muse have already abandoned the entire album except for Madness. Like Jobby said, one has to wonder if the band really knows how they want to sound.

Interview in the new Q magazine that's been put on Twitter mentions that 2 other new ones are done. One is a heavy prog-rock song and one is a track with an acoustic that Dom said had a Simon and Garfunkel vibe.

Remember he said "quite heavy" and "quite prog". Gotta cool down that hype early.

If Matt replaces "clown" with "Nazi cunt" live I promise I'll stop bagging on this song...

I like this song. The climax with the electric guitar is epic. Sounds a lot like Madness. Muse is always good
