Also, I donít see how the genre is inappropriate at all?
I bet Starlight was even a badder shock for fans when it was released than this one.
In fact, I may find GUAF very generic and too blatantly made for airplay, but it gives me Starlight vibes indeed.

Muse often seem to be complimented for sounding like Radiohead, or insulted for sounding like 30stm. Imo, aside from the last 30stm album (easy contender for worst of the year), thatís not a bad spectrum to be on.

Why would you insult 30STM so?

I will respectfully disagree.

This honestly sounds like what a lot of the big 00s alternative bands became over time as they stagnated. I makes me have a special distaste for the song because as odd as Muse's direction became at least they usually weren't that.

based on talent alone, i'll reiterate that sia should've been the guest artist on this track instead of tove lo. and her vocals kinda "fit" w/ muse's sound...in a weird way.

not to mention...she has her own demons, and, given the song's deeper meaning, would've added an interesting nuance to the track on that front.

then again, she would've probably demanded control of the writing credits, and matt would've balked.

as a result, this thing just fails in just about every respect.

Does this song have the worst acronym of any Muse song?

GUAF!!

It sounds like two pugs smashing into one another.

It sounds like a bad onomatopoeia from a spoof 60s comic.

I mean SS is pretty bad as well, and they have two of those.

You'd think with an acronym of Double-D that Dig Down would be a better song. At least as good as KOC just to be fair.

Still not sure about this song. As someone that lost his wife far too young to cancer, it does resonate with me.

I actually rather enjoy the chorus, but there's something about the instrumentation of the verses that feels a bit bland to me. Also think it would've been cool to hear some form of duet instead of only going for the sparse vocal hook.

A simple but heartfelt song. The chorus feels touching, to me.

A duet would inevitably split this board to pieces...

Iím all for it!
