I still love this song. But I also love Big Freeze and Undisclosed Desires. 🙌

 

I particularly love the bits others seem to hate about it. The Depeche Mode, the "DEAD INSIDE!", the million drones. It's all good!

 

Same here, I love the 80s sound to it!

 

I hope this is the only song with this style on the album though - purely cos were due a nice pure rock album from the guys now :)

 

But I've said it before, I think it works amazingly as the album opener, lure them in with this relaxed dancey beat then hit them with a massive wall of rock! ;D

I'm warming to this a bit now, but I still prefer Psycho and Reapers (both amazing). My main problem with it is how cheesy the "dead inside" bits are, but it's a pretty good melody.

Why such love?

The melodies are beautiful, and the delivery. The electronic/R&B influences bring together all the best bits of Muse's experimentation over the past decade. I personally think the lyrics aren't half bad at all (especially squeezing in the word pulverised), and the juxtaposition of the last two lines are so stark - they really feel like the set the marker for the ethos of the album, from one extreme to the other. I also really like all the bits of polish that have been laden on the song, the stabs of synth, the layers that build and build and build, the way the guitar solo ties in so perfectly with the rhythm/beats (1.18 in particular is just amazing) in a way the Madness solo, for instance, completely failed to do, and so on.

 

Oh, and that MASSIVE bass :awesome:.

I think the "Dead Inside" bits are in the song as its main hook. The first time I listened this song, they were in my head for a long time... The rest of the track isn't so catchy. I love it, but I don't think it could be a hit... :(

 

I agree with the post above this completely, by the way. It's an amazing song. One of the best songs they have done.

I know. But I gone done made it. Obvs, I know it's OTT - but I think this is the most successful song of it's type (however you define that) Muse have produced so far.

Oh, and if you're wondering what songs I'm considering in that, they're Endlessly, Map Of The Problematique, Undisclosed Desires and Madness.

Ok the song is really growing on me. But I still can't stand the DEAD INSIDE!!!! and the robot voice.

 

But that vocal delivery, damn. Especially in "you've taught me to lie without a trace".

 

Endlessly>MotP>Dead Inside>Madness>UD

I really find it to be the most honest vocal performance I've heard from Matt in ages.

This. And it makes me feel all protective.

 

Love it to bits.

Nah

 

MotP>UD>Endlessly>Dead Inside>Madness

 

Can't hear any Map or Endlessly influence in this song whatsoever anyway. To be honest it sounds like a mix of the sound and structure of UD/Madness if anything with the vocal delivery of Big Freeze(which is a good thing because the vocals was the only good thing about that song)

Catchy is certainly subjective, as well, because I've had this song stuck in my head so strongly I can barely remember what Reapers or Psycho sound like.

I was pretty shocked when I first heard it, but now...oh man what a song. Love everything about, it could be even better without Dead Inside bits but they don't bother me very much tbh. Great song.

Have yet to hear this on the radio since it debuted here in LA, and our rock stations play Muse all the time. Wonder if they just didn't like it.

 

The new Foo Fighters has been on every time I get in the car though. Sounds like any other Foo Fighters song but like it.

Although I'm not a fan of "Psycho", I find it catchier because of the riff. Very lazy song, but effective and it works well live. But yeah, "catchiness" is subjective :LOL:

The guitar solo sounds so out of place, now I know what's bugging me. Unlike St Vincent who only uses guitar solos at points when it sounds good to do so in Dead Inside it seems as if Matt has thought he needed to chuck in a riff for the sake of it. And it's pretty weak. Mehhhhhhhhhheeehhhhh.

The solo is great, it fits perfectly. The solo in Madness jarrs like an absolute mofo on the other hand.

The solo in Madness is what stops Madness being a really good song for me. Muse need to do a song with energy like DI with the perfect structure of a song like Endlessly or (I don't like it very much but) UD. Not digging the guitar involvement at all right now.
