Can't wait to listen to Drones some more :D

 

It seems Revolt is a very marmite track here on the forum. I still can't put a finger on it. It's very weird :LOL: Though I absolutely love the tempo change from chorus to verse

I still haven't listened to Revolt in full,only until the first chorus. Not sure I want to tbh.

 

I'm going to give it a third try, it could be the last one ever :LOL:

Revolt isn't THAT bad. :LOL:

 

If you ignore the fact that it sounds like taylor swift then it's alright lol

The sirens duped me into thinking the prechoruses were the terrible parts. They pale in comparison to the stupid sirens.

I can't get this vomit inducing Revolt chorus out of my head! Help....me

 

If the chorus is whats bothering you about it then you definitely do need help :$

The whole thing bothers me. Just the chorus won't leave my mind

Matt's falsetto at 3:20-3:27 is brill.

I like the second part of the up tempo chorus; the long revoooooooolt bit, I hate the we can grow section and the verses are just too 'I want to Break Free' - rest of the album is superb.

Just realised where 'The Defector' riff comes from..

 

'Snakecharmer' by Rage Against the Machine (of course! ;))

 

And Reapers is essentially Bombtrack with the Freedom outro.

 

 

Go Muse.

I love this album! Reapers -> The Handler -> Defector is just perfect. The rest grows on you for sure. Only two tracks that I don't like (Aftermath, Drones) which is fewer than T2L.

I haven't listened beyond The Handler yet but looking at the reactions I think I'll probably like most of the 2nd half. It's only really Revolt that's worrying me. Although I expect the hatred reactions here are a little over the top.

I think everyone (including myself) got over hyped over the first half. The second half is really not bad at all, it's just not expected. :)

 

I think people just didn't expect a song like Revolt the most. It's like The Killers or something, which isn't a bad thing in my eyes. It's very catchy!

I mean, I don't think it's the worst song Muse have ever made, but it's kind of like the SMBH/USoE/Survival of the album in that it's so silly and unexpected that I burst out laughing when I first heard it. :LOL:

 

I kind of love how Muse are still able to do that.

Interesting! I reckon I'll probably like it, I mean I am a self-confessed fan of NSC, GL and BF so :LOL::D

USoE is probably the best out of the three you listed there. Always gets me hyped that song

Right after about 5 listens of the album as a whole...

 

Dead Inside - 7.5/10

Psycho - 6.5/10

Mercy - 6/10

Reapers - 9/10

The Handler - 9/10 - the end minute or so almost reduced me to tears its that good

[JFK] + Defector - 6.5/10

Revolt - 5/10

Aftermath - 7/10

The Globalist - 7.5/10

Drones - 6/10

 

Overall 7/10. Reapers and The Handler really got my hopes up and I feel let down a little. I scoffed a little bit yesterday when the guy who went to the Triple J listening party said the first half of the album is better. After hearing the whole album, i'd have to agree with him.
