Origin has its moments but it's mostly either weird gobbledygook or slightly better love/emo stuff from Showbiz. Black Holes isn't too far removed from TR imo - obvs you've got Hoodoo but other than that, is there much of a difference between the political stuff and love songs of each album?
Weird gobbledygook is sooooo much better though than Matt groaning into your ear with painfully bad lyrics front and center.

And idk, I find BH&R's lyrics much better overall than TR.

Oh yeah, it's 100% better. I'm just saying particularly good lyrics have always been a bit of a rarity for Matt so it doesn't really factor into me liking or disliking a Muse song, it's just a nice bonus when it happens.

Latest Matt interview at Lollapalooza he says a new song maybe before Christmas or early next year.

When he first announced releasing singles first, I'm sure he said another one in Autumn and one before Christmas

Then again, with touring it's not unexpected that plans change.

They wouldn't want to release that heavy one they recorded or anything.

Was there ever any confirmation that the heavy song exists? I thought it was just a fan who claimed to have met them.

The heavy song exists and it's Dig Down! It even has a solo, c'mon.

Nah it was stated by Dom in an interview a few weeks ago. "quite heavy" and "quite prog" I think were the quotes.

They've still got that soft acoustic ballad-y one as well.

This release method's gonna be a bit wank if they're gonna be spaced so far apart. If you get something not so great (like Dig Down), you're looking at 7/8 months wait until you might hear a good new song. At least with a normal album, if the lead single's not great, you've got a full album's worth of other material to look forward to within 2/3 months.

He also said that Drones would sound fucked up, so I'll take that with a big grain of salt.

At least Dom was the one pushing Matt to start playing The Handler live, so I'll trust his judgement more than Matt's.
And his phrasing. I'm pretty sure Matt called Mercy heavy.

Yeah we say this about everything but at some point you just gotta...discuss what they're telling us, right?

And it's not like we're expecting them to actually pull out a prog song. Just one that that is pretty heavy and might be considered old school-Muse.

I guess The Globalist was fairly prog, by their current standards. It was also terrible but that's not necessarily connected.

Right. Especially when the big lead single is something that most people didn't seem to like initially and will dislike even more when it pops up on the album. Assuming that Dig Down really had to be a thing, it should have just been released on some soundtrack or charity compilation. It's not the worst idea to release a track once in a while that keeps the band on the radio, Youtube, streaming services etc. but nobody would be too remiss if Dig Down was omitted from an album release 8 months later.

Considering the state of the music industry these days, how much does an album really matter anyway? Don't get me wrong. I love listening to a good album all the way through but I'm not sure how many people still do that.

Yeah, that's true. I'll settle for even a mediocre rock track at this point.
