The soloís great, especially with Domís crash cymbal accompanying it, so it almost seems odd to me that he goes back to the toms straight after the solo. I feel like it would reach a much better climax if he stayed on the crash cymbals for at least the following chorus, even perhaps until the end of the song

I prefer the streamed version of it, cause it is raw. The remixed one is too perfect, almost too clean if you know what I mean. and yes, Matt was struggling.

So after a couple weeks have passed and we've heard it live who's opinion changed on TC? In either direction.

I liked it at release as a guilty pleasure. Still like it, like the live version even more.

I think the live version sounds better than the studio version, but I still find it quite boring as a song in its own right unfortunately. It's not as bad as Dig Down (which is hardly praise in any case), and if it was a case of hearing it for the first time as part of a good album, I'd probably be a bit more forgiving (it's not exactly the first 'okay' song they've done recently), but I think part of the problem for me is that the context it's been released in is that they've got this and Dig Down as their two leading singles for whatever their next album ends up being, and it's not enough to excite me unfortunately. Granted, their singles rarely end up being the songs I like most on albums in any case, but they've made the choice to do this 'one song at a time' approach which means that's all we've got to go on. I certainly don't agree with Matt about that making all the songs individually better so far.

The live video is better than the studio version. The riff is catchy. The vocals are still shit though, as are the verses in general. If you put post-2006 Matt's lyrics up front and leave nothing else to listen to while he's singing, you're asking for trouble.
Paris was a fantastic gig. Even now Matt's voice is still very compelling when he sings the oldies. But this style and lyrical content, nah.

(I'm also saying this as someone so capable of forcing himself to like music that he managed to convince himself he liked Aftermath for a week or so after Drones came out...at least it's better than that song though)

Also, I still can't get past the Final Solution line, and finally, why is the solo just the main melody? Not asking for a Reapers-style thing that veers off in all directions but seriously couldn't he have played some other notes

Half the live version sounded like playback tbh - the synth over the riff, the chorus backing vocals, etc. Muse's ever increasing reliance on extra tracks and layers live are making their shows even less live than ever.

Doesn't it sound like the woahs are just done by Chris and the audience?

In fact. Beside the synths, the track isn't half-playback at all; if anything, it seems they have reduced them.

I just got a notification that I can put a Thought Contagion ad onto my Facebook profile.

That's, uh, kind of ironic given the subject matter...
