So basically the song is about Matt feeling 'pressure' from us to write better songs. Fuh you Matt.

Funny, in my case I'd say it's the opposite. I feel like I wouldn't be that judgemental if it was another band.

Still think the chorus is bad.

Rest is pretty good though.

When I listened to it the first time my headphones were not completely plugged in and I could only hear the instrumental and the backing vocals, and I think the chorus sounded amazing and more powerful than it really is.

so i'm not the only one who has the thing where you can plug in your headphones in a certain way to only hear certain bits of the song

Well, if I were in his shoes and read your comments I'd be pretty pissed off to be honest.

Touché .

I think he has reasons to feel that way, and if he wanted to express himself like that, I can't complain.

I find it interesting though, I've always thought he didn't give two fucks about fandom opinions, but it seems he actually does.

Considering the funny, ironic mood of the music, I'd even say he put it into words quite lightly.

I don't like the backing vocals in the chorus, or really anything about the vocals in the chorus at all. But the verses have a great groove and the mindless headbang-y section is lots of fun. Overall good stuff.

Having said that, I'm actually less, not more, optimistic about the album now if this is one of the heavier, more aggressive songs, and it's still quite dance-y and tongue-in-cheek. I know this is pure conjecture but I don't have a good feeling about Propaganda based on the fact Timbaland is involved, and stuff like Break it to Me and Get Up and Fight have such bad titles that I can't imagine the songs themselves aren't going to be cheesy as hell.

Also, St Vincent's and Radiohead's most recent stuff has been wayyy more interesting and well-executed than anything off Simulation Theory so far, but they'll come off positively in comparison to most stuff anyway imo. Doesn't mean Pressure and The Dark Side aren't enjoyable

EDIT: misspelled Timbaland :/

Every song so far has been so straightforward. If the rest of the album is like this it really won't have replay value. I love The Dark Side but I can tell it won't have the staying power of something like Dead Inside. And Pressure has the makings of a song that could be really good, but it doesn't go anywhere and it's just not very interesting at all the way it is now. Even the "bridge" is literally just the same riffs again. But I guess they're hoping this is their hit song from the album considering they even advertised it during Thursday Night Football last night (the marching band version). Doesn't seem like a hit to me though.

I agree partially. I think Pressure is the worst offender so far for "could have had a sick outro but just went into another bog standard chorus"

I guess the guitar sounds St. Vincentish? But I don't see why saying something made by St Vincent is ever a bad thing.

St. Vincent uses a fuzzy tone sometimes but she doesn’t tend to do much fast/upbeat stuff with it, save Birth In Reverse. Jack White was the better comparison.
