Never heard the leak. That was my first time. Also, after reading the comments (especially the early ones), I can confirm it's a considerable amount better than I thought it would be.

I do think the official audio sounds a decent amount better than the leak.

 

My first thought too. It's a lot punchier, and Matt's vocals sound slightly better.

 

May just be a silly placebo effect, considering I was hoping the production would be better...

Muse's conversion to Star Wars promo-band 99% complete. Release date pending.

 

Adopt the movies' soundtrack style and I'll be super okay with that. :LOL:

Ok, so I didn't listen to it at all today until the official audio came out, and whilst I think it's slightly better than I remember it, I have a new complaint...

 

What the hell happened to the bass during the verses? I dismissed it earlier as potentially shoddy audio quality in the leak, but even in the real thing it's like they turned Chris' volume knob down and turned off all of his pedals. It means Matt's vocals are soooooo isolated and sparse, and it doesn't work at all imho

I like that it had a Corvette.... but in all seriousness this is nothing like I was expecting. Definitely sounds like something made for the US crowd. Also that thriller dance scene

it's got to the point now where Muse would shock me more if they didn't reinvent their style on the next album

 

In what way is this them "reinventing their style", though? Drones wasn't new ground, T2L didn't even have "a style".

Something I noticed in Coldplay's most recent album is that every song, at some point, had some kind of chanting section, as if the whole project was written with a live show in mind. I'm starting to get the same feeling with these two singles, given all the woah's in each song's choruses. Makes sense I guess, if their end game is to keep on playing stadiums/arenas.

I think there's some pieces in there that could have made a good song, but it just goes absolutely nowhere.

It's not a long song, and you're bored of it before the halfway mark; you've heard it all.

 

Feels extremely unfinished.

The video's for DD and TC both flash the words 'Augmented Flex, Out Now'. New album title? Or some weird upcoming augmented reality gimmick?

Probably the most blatantly "we made this for live performing" track Muse has done since Uprising.

During the interview with Annie Mac, they said something about the next tour being "completely revolutionary" or something along those lines. My mind immediately jumped to a VR "gig" where everyone is given a VR headset and watches the concert through there. Either that or we would be inside the music videos. Something completely outlandish. Odds of this happening? 1/9.999x10^999. I think it could be the album name though, that sounds kinda reasonable.

Yeah, I started thinking that as well... Didn't Matt actually mention the idea of VR/AR gigs in the past?

I feel like he has but I have the worst memory so I couldn't tell you for sure

After a good few listens...

 

+ I'm really enjoying the 'You've been bitten by...' parts and falsetto.

+ I love the weird synth line.

+ Solid vocal delivery from Matt.

 

- It's too repetitive, I was expecting more post-solo.

- I don't mind the 'woahs', but I preferred how they were done in Dig Down. I also don't think those sections will get as big a crowd reaction as the band might think.

- It's unmistakably 'Muse' but I still feel it's missing something? I can't put my finger on what though...perhaps a big chest voice/falsetto note or a more grand ending?

 

Overall it's on the same level as something like Defector for me. Enjoyable, but not particularly memorable. I do wish they would give all the harmonies/choir like sounds a rest. Sounds like it could be promising in a live setting though.

He was also talking about needing to try out the technology first and make sure the tech side of it works properly before he could say... sounds like it could be something like that

I mean it could've done with some fat articulated riffing/soloing but I say that about almost every song ever.

New worst muse song for me.

 

What happened to this band? Miles apart from where they started, even from TR. I guess I should accept that their target audience has changed.

Well....that's one way to do a music video....

 

What the heck happened at the end there? Some crazy inception kinda thing with the arcade game? Also the thriller moves were funny when the Foo Fighters did it last year, here, like a lot of the video, it just feels out of place. Honestly just seems like a giant disconnect between the video and the song for me. Like the aesthetic is fine on its own, but the video just doesn't seem to follow the song at all.

 

Whatever, I don't listen to Muse to watch amazing music videos.

They're like, "we love playing Fury but no one in the crowd knows or likes it other than a few hardcore fans."

 

That probably cuts deep for all the Fury fanboys out there. I mean, if you love it, just play it, right? (And I'm not even in the Fury fanboy group; there are a dozen other B-sides I like better.)

I assume it's the album title, but there's a company called Flex that's also attempting AR headsets.

 

Yeah, I started thinking that as well... Didn't Matt actually mention the idea of VR/AR gigs in the past?

 

He did mention it as a way to incorporate the fact that people are always on their phones at gigs.

The logistics of it though are absolutely mindboggling, especially considering they're already charging $100+ for gigs with little production and cutting back majorly on the areas they're playing in.
