I agree, though. Sounds awesome with the organ, though too many people already dismiss this track as too 'churchy', and organ would only make it churchier. Now I need to go and listen to Megalomania.

I like this song, and overall Matt's voice is amazing in it. But there are a couple of places where he sings high and it's a bit screechy, and I think it would've sounded better if he'd maintained that sort of pure, boy choir tone.

Hi! I made a video showing the voices Matt does during 'Drones'. Hope you like it (and sing it)!

Totally unrelated. What is that video clip in your sig and why does it seem like an optical illusion? It's messing with me.

It's a tiny clip of Chris playing Hysteria in Seattle (the Resistance Tour gig they streamed on MySpace), looping forever so the headbanging never ends. Just watch the tower behind him and you'll see how short the clip actually is.

Back on topic, the artwork for this song is one of the better ones on Drones imo, albeit a sad one. The one for Reapers doesn't fit at all!

This got taken down before I could watch it. I'd love to see it, any chance you could upload it again?

I was kinda afraid of this song. Even though I'm a bit into this kind of music, I don't usually listen to it; but this song is beautiful. It's gonna be on my playlist of quiet songs

The song is beautiful, and I want to love it so, so very much... but the fucking "drones" popping up in the lyrics kills me.
Someone compared it to some stupid South Park wiener themed GoT song to me, and now I can't get that out of my head, either.

I do not think that Drones is a proper song because I believe that:
1. It will very rarely (or probably never) get played live.
2. We already have 2 interludes on the album.

If no one cares then why have I been quoted several times?

I thought the thread was for everyone's opinion, regardless of whether they like the song in question or not?

Jfc. People are disagreeing with your statement that it isn't a song, it has nothing to do with whether or not you like it.

1. Shit point. Is Big Freeze not a song?
2. So then Falling Away With You isn't a proper song, because that album has an intro and an interlude, and it hasn't been played live.

PROPER song. As in the song is improper to my personal preference (ie. it ends the album on a bad note). The last track on all their other albums are very good. If Globalist was the last track I'd have been so much happier.

If Big Freeze and FAWY haven't been played live how does that suggest that Drones probably will? Sorry pal but you seem way too over confident for such a shitty track.

So basically you're saying it's a BAD song.

What? Honestly what? I'm saying that if Drones isn't a proper song because it hasn't been played live, then neither is Big Freeze or FAWY because those haven't either. How is this not obvious?

You misunderstand.

The vocals overlap with harmony. I don't think Drones would be played live because it probably isn't even possible for a start. Unless they cloned Matt Bellamy or just played back the recorded version, like they would JFK for example. The track is garbage.

I liked Big Freeze. Pretty gutted they've never played it live in fact. But that doesn't stop me from disliking Revolt either.
