LOL, true. For example, there's a big difference between what Trump says and simply saying that Guiding Light wasn't that bad.

Like Tjet said, I wouldn't really call anything from '06 recent but Reapers is way worse in the 'fiddling around with pedals' aspect than Invin Supermassive's is absolute guff on-record though, you're not wrong there. I mean, it's pretty much non-existent tbf. Really weird choice considering how cool some of the live versions he did for it were.

Defector's still got my shout for best recent solo though. Followed by...idk, maybe US and Animals? They haven't had a whole lot of great ones since TR.

Super average on-record but it was a surprise highlight at most gigs I went to. Defo one of the best pop songs I've seen them do.

I actually went out of my way to find out what you were talking about and...yeah. You can see my very harsh reply in the appropriate thread.

But hey, at least we can rest easy knowing that calling Stockholm Syndrome amazing will never be controversial.

On this forum anyway.


In other potentially controversial chit chat, call me naive but I think Reapers has the greatest guitar solo of the 21st century so far. I've yet to hear one more fun, more musical, and more emotive this millennia than it.

It kind of does. As I said earlier, it has a very old school rock vibe.

Though now that I think of it, maybe the AC/DC comparison isn't so unfounded. I mean, Mutt Lange produced both Drones and AC/DC's Highway to Hell and Back in Black.

'potentially controversial'?

I mean, there's a hell of a lot of guitar solos to consider in 17 years (and I don't even tend to get much out of them) so I doubt I could even name one as the best but Reapers ain't even my favourite Muse one.

That's pretty much why they went with him, been pretty well-documented tmk

It was either that or 2000s-2010s Mutt Lange material, but I'm pretty sure Matt Bellamy doesn't think of Nickelback's Dark Horse and Maroon 5's Hands All Over as highly influential.

Completely forgot about Defector, remember hearing it on 6 Music for the first time and when it came to the solo... the feels

See, controversial!

The only competition I can see for Reapers in the category of Matt's greatest guitar solos is Madness, though he is an excellent soloist. I just really dig it when he decides to write a regular solo and shows off his mastery of the traditional guitar solo. If you have any examples of a better guitar solo from the 21st century that I've either never heard or have seriously overlooked, I'd be glad to give it a listen.

Like posting an old school pic of Mutt working with ACDC on their IG as a way of revealing he was producing Drones?
