Oh wow, yeah that's quite similar. Different enough for it not to be classified as stealing from themselves though, imo.

The Globalist is just horrible.

Dead Inside is still great for me, and Reapers and The Handler - even if the latter two do feel like fan service.

The rest of the album? Mainly horrid - and bland. It can't get much worse than bland.

The Handler is a bit like MK Ultra for me - it's ok and Muse-y enough but feels like there was so much more potential there.

Mildly unsatisfying, a bit like the 2nd instrumental breakdown in The Small Print which always bugged me because it did nothing and felt unfinished.

I still think it's a really solid album, easily the best since Black Holes. Doesn't reinvent the wheel by any means, but I welcome that over a shitstorm like T2L.

Wonder if people will look back on it in a kinder light when this new album drops (in like a fucking years time), not feeling it's gonna be a good 'un.

I like The Globalist. Its a mess and the first part didn't work live, but I still find enjoyment in it.

Quoting Liam Gallagher, which can be an advice for Muse:

I'm not gonna say names. They've got the tools to make guitar music great and they're just fuckin' doing it half-arsed. They've got one foot in the fuckin' dance world and one foot in the fuckin' guitar world and they're just seeing which one fuckin' bites. They're there with their fuckin' keyboards and whistles and shit. If you're going to do "guitar music" you have to put a fuckin' guitar on a record. Put the fucker in. Stop wearing it like it's a fuckin' necklace.

This one? The Agitated riff is actually quite similar as well, just in 5/4! Sounds a bit Matt suddenly had a mind blank of all their outro riffs..

If the new one is even worse it won't make Drones any better, a turd remains a turd.

I barely keep up with Muse or the fandom anymore, but it's good to see I'm not in the minority. Drones is just so so uninspired, and Psycho is honestly one of, if not their absolute worst song they've put out. Repetitious, uninspired, rehash, with cringe lyrics.

I miss the days where I thought Supermassive Black Hole was their worst creation.

Psycho would've been a great muse song had they written it about 10-15 years ago.

Another member of the 'The Globalist is shit' fan club.

They should have just taken the riff section as it's own 2 minute tune and stuck it between Reapers and The Handler.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road sample could have blended nicely into the soundbite after "given you the code".
