Defector's solo is awesome, it's just the verses that are rather bland.

But yeah apart from that I agree

“The truth is that when I am killing in order to survive
I have never felt so alive”



Edit: also, is this easily the most ‘stereotypical Muse’ song ever? (not a criticism)

People keep saying that, but idk it sounds different for me. Not as different as BITM or something, but it still has a very 80's sound to it and doesn't remind me much of other Muse songs right off the bat.

It’s the heavy synth arpreggio use, driving triplet beat, piano pre-chorus, chuggy down-tuned chorus w/ falsetto, whammy-play shreddy solo, Queen backing vocals, big “beeeee the best” lyric belts....

Yeah I wouldn't call it "Muse by numbers" but it's definitely a lot of their stereotypes over the years.

.

I had the same thought. It's definitely a Muse by numbers song, but I enjoy it. It's like a mashup of KoC, Survival, & USoE.

I keep zoning out before the solo hits. I had to deliberately skip to it to give it a proper listen.

The line "These blockades must fall down" reminds a lot of "Break this walls down" from COD, both lyrically and musically speaking.
