Well, in the same tour with Download they resumed Citizen, AP, Uno, Micro Cuts and the likes.
And if you exclude the American leg, the Drones Tour wasn't terrible at all. They rotated a fair share of songs and they managed to exhibit a good amount of energy throughout, bar some gigs.

It's not about "rotation of songs", the energy was terrible, they looked lazy and bored. Basically they just looked like Drones playing through a setlist.

But saying that if you really are happy with how Muse are these days, then I'm happy for you.

If this was mid-2009 and this was the first snippet we were hearing from their first post-Black Holes and Revelations album then I'd be inclined to agree.

But as it's their new song after 3 disappointing albums, I don't think so.

Honestly I'm fine with Muse writing songs I don't like, Drones was not the return to the hard rock "Absolution"-era sound they pimped it out to be, The 2nd Law is the prime example of a scattershot record, but for as bad as some tracks have been it's never felt like they were actually running out of ideas. At least when the band fucks up it's a really impressive kind of fuck up where the earnest belief that some of these tracks were good ideas gives them something of a value to gawk at. The spectacle of it is at least entertaining. But this song doesn't even get that out of me. It promises a bang but it ends in a whimper.

I dunno, this kinda reaffirms what I've felt ever since Muse released Psycho. There's glimpses of great ideas in some tracks they make but if you decide a track like that should be the representation of an album; a generic riff taken from the storage which passed for a live jam but is hardly a full track basis for a band that's been in the business for two decades, it feels like they're resting way too much on their laurels. This, similarly, just lacks teeth.

Oh come on guys, it's not dreadful. It's already way better than Aftermath, Resistance and Follow Me imho, though that is admittedly not great praise. A bit predictable in places (the Queen harmonies...) and not sure there's as much of a payoff as there could be. It could have been longer, with a more interesting solo and a big return to the main melody at the end, with a tonne more stuff thrown in. The DIG DOWN bit is also not great but it will probably be pretty funny live.

EDIT: Have to confess I am struggling to rank it higher than any Muse singles other than those 3 at the moment

I wouldn't call these 'Queen harmonies' tbh, they remind me more of typical gospel stuff.

Seen this complaint a fair amount as far back as Dead Inside's release but I've never really got it. IIRC, they delivered pretty much exactly what they said they would for once - a relatively stripped back, rock-based album.

Good call to be fair. There is definitely a general gospel-y influence towards the end, which I like.

I always forget about Resistance and Aftermath. Yeah, I probably like it more than those too, but still: boooring.

Frontman Matt Bellamy says of it: “When I was writing this song, I was looking to counteract the current negativity in the world and give inspiration, optimism and hope to people to fight for the causes they believe in; that as individuals we can choose to change the world if we want to.”

Now read again in Bono's voice.

To quote a once-great band: How did it come to this?

He's been saying shit like that since Abso.

Come on guys, if you don't like the song then whatevs but it's a bit extreme to act like this is some kind of turning point for the band.

Resistance is way better than those songs, imho.

Just accept anything Muse will do from now on it's shit, because you know it's Muse.

But don't worry, more tickets available.

Also, I know there's that recent snapchat clip of Matt playing the acoustic, but that aside, the title of this thread is pretty much redundant now, right?
