I'm pretty sure it's "I'm escaping from your grip"

 

Pretty sure it is "And I will no longer do as I am told". Wouldn't make sense otherwise.

 

Yeah.

So:

 

"You were my oppressor

And I, I have become programmed to obey

Now, you are my handler

And I, I will execute your demands.

Leave me alone

I must dissociate from you

Behold my transformation

And you are empowered to do as you please

My mind was lost in translation

And my heart has become a cold and impassive machine

Leave me alone

I must dissociate from you

I won't let you control my feelings anymore

And I will no longer do

As I am told

And I am no longer afraid to walk alone

Let me go, let me be

I'm escaping from your grip

You will never own me"

The Handler 9/10

Reapers 8/10

Mercy 7/10

Psycho 6.5/10

Dead Inside 6/10

 

The Handler would be 10/10 if the solo weren't so long.

The falsetto's are great. Those are D4's right? Hopefully he'll be able to do them as powerful live as on the studio track. Supremacy sounded weak at times, but those were E4 iirc and a lot more sustained

 

yeah my immediate thought was that it might not be as good live, but who cares when it's this good on record ;)

This is sounding fucking amazing. Better with each listen. I'm honestly loving the length of the solo, I like that it's long and slowly building. And Matt's singing is just fantastic and fits so well with the music. God I love this.

the 'solo' is shit and far too long.

 

otherwise good.

About sums it up, can see Matt trying to ape Showbiz's guitar style a bit but Showbiz guitar solos are more varied and not as long.

Yep. I think it's the A3s (using your octave notation) that will cause problems for him.

First try, I was liking it but not loving it. A few listens later, I'm finding it an enjoyable beat. Nice vibe and a very good menacing riff to it. It reminded me a little of City of Delusion with the vocals, but with an Absolution-style bass line.

Okay I'm really beginning to understand why they think this might be their best album. The Handler is incredible, the lyrics are solid, Matt's voice is superb and well everything about it rocks

I have doubts about him doing the "doododoaadodododaodada" parts because of the awkward timing with the guitar. Hope it won't be MK Ultra all over again and just drop something to make it easier

Okay this song now has grown on me. First couple of listens were "Oh sounds good!" but not totally loving it. Totally awesome.

 

This song totally belongs in a unknown album Muse made in-between OoS and Abso.

I'm really anxious to hear the rest of the album now. Absolutely insane that they released Psycho (oh god it's terrible) and Dead Inside while songs like Reapers and The Handler were sitting by doing nothing. It's like they were trying to lower our expectations so they could blow us away at the last second.

Possibly alongside such classics as Eternally Missed, Shrinking Universe, Futurism et al :LOL:

Probably exactly what they planned

They had to keep their secret weapons a little bit more. Who knows what they can put out now? They already surprised us, could do it again
