Does anyone else think at the start when the guitar kicks in it sounds slightly like the song One by U2

I like the intro to the song, but I just cannot stand the ending third. That call and response/church hymn style really hits me the wrong way. I hate to say it, but it's almost unlistenable.

So many links and allusions in this song. But the strongest resemblance to my ear is with Explorers except the fact that I like Aftermath a thousand times more..

Aftermath is one of the most beautiful songs they've made.

 

Agreed. To me it sounds like Blackout, and I love Abso so :thumbsup:.

So you'd be okay with Muse just giving up playing live at all for their 8th album?

 

with a fifth person (2nd morgan) they can achieve a lot. (not that I'd like to see them going down that direction)

According to Musewiki it sounds like One by Metallica :LOL::LOL::LOL:. Funny mistake.

IMO is the most soulful song since Shine.

And by soulful i mean, beautiful, full of feelings, great atmosphere and great lyrics.

Really digging the vibe this song gives off. Some fantastic guitar work in this. I would love to know though, is that Chris singing in the background towards the end??

I think this will be quite tricky for them to play live. Hope they give it a go at least once though and don't give it the Big Freeze...

Literally only able to get 3/4 (just before the second chorus, last 1:35) through this song before it just starts to remind of some christian revival choir song.

 

Edit: now that I think about it, my Mom will probably love this song.

This song is absolutely amazing. 10/10. Best one on the album for me personally, with Dead Inside, Reapers, The Handler and Defector coming after.

I think this song became my favourite of the second part of the album. I'm really digging the intro and Matt's voice sounds very unique here :happy:

Intro sounds too much like dire straits for my liking. Middle is classic Muse ballad. End sounds like a recent Manics track from something like Postcards from a young man.

I cannot like this song. It's dire. Christian rock indeed. And it ain't got nothing on Explorers. :phu:

This song is incredible. The guitar work is great, and I love the lyrics and vocals. I feel like this song may end up being a hidden gem, and at this moment this is one of my favourite songs from the album
