By a mile the best thing on this album so far. Loving the synth-bass mixed-up groove.

Womp. Now THAT is far more like it. Really liked that - only minor quibbles is the solo has six, err, 'rounds' rather than eight so the chorus comes back in quite abruptly, the 'save me from the dark side' refrain at the end doesn't quite bookend the song which is a little anticlimactic, and the actual instrumentation doesn't build quite as massively right at the end as I hoped.

But they're minor quibbles compared with the major problems I still have with TC and DD. SH is just, well, fine'ish.

MK Ultra with a bit of extra synthing up would fit a treat on this album.

Would love to see a change up on this tour, things like Panic Station and Survival getting a heavy rotation, MoTP instead of Resistance ( if I have to see resistance live one more time I might have a breakdown)

Also I think itís time for the TiRO...to end

Loving the massive Eternally Missed-esque bass.

I like the song overall but part of me thinks our standards have been lowered. If this is the synth rock Motp-like song then it doesnít compare. I didnít think I would but still.

Am I alone on thinking that although this is ok-good, next to MOTP this is a pile of shit?

Iíll stress I didnít expect it to compare or top it because motp is a top ten all time Muse song imo.

I was really not expecting to like anything off this album... Now I'm conflicted, damnit. Why couldn't the other songs be more like this?

I like it. Not my fave, and I'm not really a fan of the 80s sound (and look... ), but it's enjoyable. I love Something Human quite a bit more.

Was it worth giving a thread when the album thread also says "new songs"?

It reminds me so much of 2015 Metric.

Edited the title.

It's easier to moderate smaller threads than those huge mega threads and we're hoping to move away from that.

Right when I was ready to give up on this album cycle...

When the band discussed influences for the record, I always imagined something a lot more like this. The vocal harmonies, the progressions and melodies... Its muse's old-school sense of melody wrapped in the 80s stuff and the synth wave outrun stuff. I like it a lot, and much much more than the other singles.actually,strongest muse single in quite a while, imo.

Ofc, I'm now fully expecting this to be amongst the top 2 of the album, and I'm mentally preparing for the rest to be bollocks.

I'd argue MOTP is way more repetitive than this new one, and what makes it stand out is mainly its particular sound.
Shortly speaking, to me it's quite overrated, aside from its lyrics.

Best thing they've done in a long time! Very MotP with a more '80s feel that plays into the early-computer game, Sci-fi vibe. A vibe that's been sorely missing from their last few albums.

For me, it's only a good middle 8/pre-chorus bridge for variety (maybe with a cool riff) away from being up there with classic Muse. And even then, it's still pretty good. Surprisingly impressed!

I guess the Map thing just came from the electronic/rock fusion, though each sways way more towards one than the other. He did add a whopping two Ďishís in that comparison though tbf. Maybe the driving, beefy synth line reminded him of what he was trying to simulate w/ the Whammy back then.

Quality-wise itís nowhere near Map but v little of their discography is soooo
