I can envisage a decent crowd reaction to the 'Dig Down' chorus chant whatchamacallit.

I expected both song and video to be way more cheesy

Yeah, not a fan of that either. Matt's nowhere near smooth enough to pull that off, stick to being an awkward lil nerd, ya nerd.

Other than that though, my only complaints are the synth bass ripping off Madness too much and that the pace picks up a bit jarringly at the guitar solo. It's not amazing but it's alright imo.

It seems like a lot of people hate the chorus but I'm actually enjoying the stompiness and the gospel. At least it was a reprieve from the verse vocals ughhh haha. If you take away the chorus the song would literally Madness. But anyway I like it. It's catchy!

The last minute is obviously the best but like others have said it just doesn't feel big enough. It feels like it could be building to something but then the song ends abruptly. Though my first reaction (after surprise) was "glad they kept it short and sweet instead of dragging it out like Psycho".
Well i dunno, Psycho live totally makes up for it's length, I utterly hate it when muse keep trying to add orchestras to the music, makes it sound so cheesy. I can't see this song being anything other than utterly dull live.

The biggest problem is whilst they keep making this horrible music to try and generate new "fans" they are losing more than they are gaining and the crowds at the gigs now are so boring it's beyond belief.

I don't really understand why they keep doing it, because even Muse themselves look bored playing live at the moment. They haven't had a decent gig since Download Festival.

Dig down six feet and you'll find Muse.

Now, that's a bit overdramatic. I may understand Dig Down has upset you, but to project that feeling upon everything they're done the last two years... it's a bit too much, don't you think?

Man, not even a wiggle from me. As soon as it started, I knew what to expect.
The porno moan sealed the deal for me.

I truly love muse and will see them on every tour. But I fear the day when the scales are tipped to far, and the majority of the set becomes Madness, Starlight, Dead Inside, Dig Down, Starlight etc. and the mosh pit becomes frowned upon.

Not at all, i went to 6 Gigs before download proceeding from 2003 to Download and then London, Prague and Belfast gigs after Download. I'm also heading to Reading festival this year, but i am pretty sure this is going to be the one that tips the scales to never again for me.

It's... ok. It sounds way too much like Madness and that has me worried the album is headed down the same schizophrenic path as The 2nd Law.

The intro sounds really cool at first until you realize the chord progression is the same predictable shit. Why'd they have to do this song in a major scale? It'd been much more interesting in a minor scale and reminiscent a little more of older material. It'd give a little more variety in these tracks that they're obviously writing as live bangers, and the song might be enjoyable in that kind of context, but the material is starting to become indistinguishable.

They should just quit or take a few years off before they embarass themselves even further.

At the very least stop letting Matt write the music. Ugh.

You're right, the last two years isn't enough!
