I'm just wondering what people's beef with the blue blood / green mind / yellow belly is? Being of a noble birth, envious/jealous and a coward is what it reflects. :erm:

For me, it's a little too simple, it sticks out too much, and I don't like the way Matt says "belleh." But the rest of the song is fun.

this is my favorite track. Stop harping on stuff sounding like Queen. This song has an opera esque chorus and everyone thinks it sounds like Queen...a band from the 70s.

I enjoy it. I don't even think it's bad. And I'm usually the first to criticize their lyrics.

It might be the goofiest line in any Muse song, which is quite a feat.

 

"Yellow belly" is an insult that you'd expect from Yosemite Sam, so it's hilarious to hear it sung by the thoroughly English Matt Bellamy.

YEAH the 'blood is blue and you've got green brains or whatever and your belly is yellow' bit I could do without :LOL:

I've decided this is my fave from Drones. The Handler is 2nd I guess.

 

Same. Although Reapers and Handler are tied for me.

 

Still think the bass is the best bit of this song, beaut

 

It's fantastic.

this is the most addicting song they've made in a long time

 

the 'yamma defector' before the solo and the solo played twice makes it so easy to ignore the rest of the lyrics

I like the song, and I love the 2 guitar solos. I feel like the song has too many choruses (4 choruses altogether), and this detracts from it. You could remove one chorus from the song and it would be better, like so:

 

Riff (which is the chorus without vocals)

Chorus 1 <- REMOVE THIS

Verse 1

Chorus 2

Verse 2

Chorus 3

Solo 1

Chorus 4

Solo 2

 

This song has the same problem that Psycho has. Too many repetitions.

I noticed it was that first chorus that I didn't like earlier today as well. Quickly edited together a version without it and it feels so much better, only problem is there's a "Ffffuh..." where the first chorus should start, I think it actually sounds kinda cool though.

 

Probably gonna do the same for Psycho and (if I can) The Globalist eventually, still haven't worked out which bit(s) to edit out of Psycho though.

Hi all,

 

I'm hearing like some distortion/crackle in the left channel of defector in the verses on some of the floor tom hits. Now I thought this was just my headphones being blown however I can hear it in my car as well.

 

Anyone else hearing this or are just all my speakers blown!

In what way are you listening to Defector (CD, vinyl (lol), Amazon MP3, etc.)?

 

iTunes download with headphones and cd in car

I think it's not the tom, but the snare. And it feels like a precise effect which reminds of an explosion shockwave.

I find it very neat. :)

It feels intentional, like a crunching sound.
