Not bad. In fact, it was fine save for two things.

 

1. Not enough Chris (there can never be enough, frankly).

2. The cuts to Matt looking into the camera totally breaks the aesthetic, with the rest filmed in an observational manner.

 

Yeah although the cuts to Dom are as just erratic and disjointed. Must have been taking inspiration off Limmy.

Anyway do people actually get excited and care about music videos anymore?

 

Yes. I don't know why people keep thinking otherwise.

Cool concept in what way exactly? It's just the band playing, a couple of dancers and sometimes two drones flying over both.

 

I liked the idea of drones observing the dancers. If the choreography was better at telling the story (of a girl turning the guy into someone like her) and also the cuts were made with more thought it could have been a solid simple video.

 

But meh, it's boring. don't think I'd ever watch it again.

Your cute animal pictures make me feel more content/warm/fuzzy about Muse than Muse does right now. Especially your sig.

You clearly deserve a raise.

 

Also, I'm just not that into dancing, I think.

The beginning and end of this video have characters looking into the camera.

I don't see that the aesthetic is broken by it occuring in between then?

I typically don't expect much from Muse videos. The only good one they actually did, in my opinion, was for Hysteria.

 

Plus, I don't get the hoopla over interpretive dance.

I'm rather surprised. I watched the music video and the song has actually grown on me a bit.

 

Yeah same. Would have vastly preferred something different as an album opener, but the vocal melody and solo are nice.

I'm still disappointed there were no drones in the only time Matt actually says drones.

I rather like the parts with the band, and the drones. Just not feeling the dancing bits, and don't think they meshed well with the music (and as has been said, didn't feel edited quite right.)

Would have liked to see them do something different interspersed with the band clips to illustrate the narrative.

And that wasn't even an original concept.

 

Surely Knights of Cydonia is worth a shout in that regard. Always thought Supermassive's vid was pretty good too, and Time is Running Out. I'm probably biased though, those videos being on TV were part of how I got into the band.

Sunburn is the best music video.

 

This.

 

Completely agree, I really like the new video and it is the best one they have done in a while but still nothing tops Sunburn's video :)

hysteria is the best imo.

a music video with the band themselves in it is doomed to be mediocre at best.

I never liked the Hysteria one, either.

 

I think the only ones I've watched more than a handful of times are Bliss, SfA, TiRO, US SS, and Invincible.

 

Nothing to do with whether the band is in them, or not. The band shots in this one were good, and could have looked really nice with a better narrative bit cut into them.

As it was, the dust and military themes didn't mesh well or even make sense with the dancing... unless you already know what the album is about or read Matt's Twitter.

After just watching the video I've come to the conclusion that the first half of the song is boring and I don't start enjoying it till after the second verse. Muse don't do minimal well, they have always been known for their big, bombastic, layered sounds and should stick to that.
