Its a shame that the solo thing is just In Your World but in a higher pitch/thing (music theory escapes me), but it suits the song perfectly. Yet to see how any of the lyrics relate to Showbiz at all though, Mr Bellamy.

 

There's lines about not letting them control his feelings any more

Was just a theory of ours that. Not correct obviously.

 

Yeah but what's the point of subtly putting that sound in the background of the end of Reapers if it doesn't mean anything. Because it definitely was there.

the lack of proper solo is really bothering me now. it sounds like it's building up to an explosive solo but it doesn't :mad:

 

Yep.

 

I'm not voting on this one yet since I haven't given it enough time but it's at best a maybe right now. And Absolution is my favorite album obviously. The vocals aren't working for me, mostly because of the awkward lyrics.

My thoughts are firstly that it's the first track in a long time that actually sounds like muse (reapers is great but doesnt sound like them iff you know what i mean), has a great dark sound that reminds me of absolution-era. Solid vocals, you can really tell Matt's voice has become a lot more controlled here. Lack of any overly cringe vocals as far as i can tell which is what kills psycho, mercy and reduces the quality of reapers.

 

Agree with everything said here

I have mixed feelings. I think it needs to grow on me a little. Currently it makes 2nd place though despite all of that.

The same point as if they would have also put it in the beginning of The Handler.

Yeah I heard it at the end of Reapers. Might appear somewhere else on the album...

Looooads of songs have random things like that thrown in. It doesn't have to mean anything. And it might relate to something later in the album, or crop up again, we'll have to see.

He said that, but then revealed Mutt had him try some stuff and he came to enjoy soloing.

 

as I said

seems like a slow and small change :)

my only gripe is the solo... if they weren't going to change it up the solo should've been a little bit shorter, otherwise this is the first muse song that's made me push the rewind button 10 times after the first 10 seconds in a LONG time.

Sounds like Drones keeps getting better. Songs like Psycho, Reapers and now (apparently) The Handler seem to prove the rock sound is back. I'd even say Mercy was rock to an extent.
