I remember hearing Dig Down on the radio a couple times, but I don't think those stations would play TC.

It's the best ever charting Muse song in France, apparently.

I just don't see the point getting excited about Muse gaining more mainstream popularity if that means they keep making songs I don't like. If they're enjoying themselves, more power to them, but what kind of "gateway" is it, really?
It's not like the mainstream is going to get into TC and then suddenly everyone's into CE, or Fury or something. I don't think it's going to lead to the band's other material clicking with people.
I don't disagree with you but that was basically my experience with the band. Granted, BH&R is generally looked on favorably but Starlight isn't really the most representative of classic Muse. Nevertheless, that was the song that got my attention more so than other songs of theirs that I had heard. Here we are a decade later and OoS is my favorite album. I may be the exception but sometimes I think people just need the right song to convince them to give a band a real shot.

Never has a three-minute song sounded so long.

Am a bit worried that it's going to be a thing from now on that every time a new single comes out, it becomes the set opener. Classic to go 'yeah, Fury would have worked dreadfully as an opening song, so it never opened gigs, but sure let's have "Fury 2.0" as an opener now that it's been released". Same kinda thing with Dig Down (Madness never opened gigs for a reason...)

Do the guys actually remember anything that ever happened from before 2009 or is it all just a big blur to them?

It was around TR time they just completely forgot how to write coherent setlists.

Also, come back piano section . Rather than the 'pop' section.

Itís always been the thing that they open with something current tbf. Atm that just happens to be each of these singles but I imagine theyíll shift to whateverís more fitting once the full recordís out.

I think they both work fine as openerís tbh, TC miles better than DD but still.

Paris performance was better IMO. But then maybe its just a recording device quality thing.

If it's true that the new album is going to have a heavier track than TC, I can see it being the new opener, with TC itself becoming the second track and DD being moved in the first "chill out zone" of the gig.

Having a more "atmospheric" song with a crescendo in its final part would be ideal, though.

I like it and much prefer it to Dig Down. Hope the new album comes out in 2018 rather than 2019.

Just rotate KOC with Stockholm and Survival, and we're good. Because I doubt we're going to get an apt closer with this album.
