Big Freeze vs. Guiding Light

Big Freeze seems to be the least liked song on T2L from what I've seen (I like it though). And OF COURSE almost everybody can't stand Guiding Light. ALMOST. I don't mind it.
Which do you prefer?
For me Big Freeze.

Big Freeze. The chorus is nice, and I can at least have fun with it.

Guiding Light is just dull.

Eesh. This one's difficult. But I did like Guiding Light live. I think I have to listen to Big Freeze a bit more before I can make a decision.

Guiding Light must feel so unloved.

I actually really like Big Freeze, it has a nice melody, it's bouncy and has an enjoyable solo, I don't understand why it's disliked so much. Explorers is far more bland and cringey.

As for Guiding Light it's just bland, uneventful and cliche. I will admit I enjoy watching it come together on the making-of DVD though, the solo is enjoyable in that context too.

Guiding Light is to Muse's discography what Nickelback is to rock music.

Stupid as fuck threads vs. quality threads.

Comparing songs like this is completely pointless and irrelevant in every way. Even disrespectful towards the band.

I think it's unfair to compare the two when we haven't heard any live versions of Big Freeze

Oh, what's that? Big Freeze is winning?! OK, carry on then

Did you really think Guiding Light would win?

I wonder if Dee will actually vote for GL, as he said many times that Big Freeze is worse

You have to CHOOSE

You just don't want to admit that Big Freeze grew on you a bit

big freeze is actually one of my favorites from the album based off about my first 5 or 6 scans of the album. besides matt blatantly doing his best bono voice at the one part in the second verse there, i think it has some really good vocals and melodies on it. and that guitar solo is something else

Ah, come on. It's just a bit of fun among fans. Just pick the one you think is better. At least it's not in the negative tone and asking people to pick the one they think is most shit, right?

Anyways, I chose Guiding Light. I still cannot get into Big Freeze, while Guiding Light has some sounds and bits that I do enjoy.
