+ Twitter and the last news post

 

Personally, I can understand feeling icky about it but I'm relatively alright with it. I think it's just a case of that song being the freshest thing in the band's minds to use as a tribute, rather than a promo thing.

That bug on his 'sunglassses' really distractred me for the rest of the video

Haha yeah.

 

The video is alright. To be honest, I didn't notice at first the use of hashtag dedications for London or Manchester. Broadly speaking, I'm alright with it.

I just so, so badly want some drunk to yell "wooo! Madness!!!" right at the beginning of the gig when that kitara starts...

All about 8K now.

 

Can't believe how actually awful Matt's vocals are at the beginning. :vomit:

 

He sounded alright to me. Doesn't help that what he's singing is horribly boring.

Muse shared Dig Down pro-shot from Nashville

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLXTXgXe5tc

 

Pretty fucking good and cool female cover, very faithful to the original source yet adding just enough individual personal twists on it. Just the way I think covers should be done.

 

Looking through her channel she has covered some other Muse songs like OoS-era material and some Absolution material as well.

The worst part of the song for me has to be the guitar solo. It's completely pointless. It's as if Matt just threw it in to try make it more of a rock song.

Is it just me now or Muse seriously needs to take a break from touring and making music? Like a year or two or three to clear their minds? Not only is their music uninspired, but they even look tired and bored. ANKOK playback is the last straw for me. .

 

I agree so much.

The solo's my favourite part by far...

I'm sitting here genuinely struggling to even remember it had a solo. Must have left quite the impression.

 

Still can't be worse than the god awful Madness solo. At least the one in Dead Inside fits really well and is more of a standalone composition.

I really don't get why people talk about the solo as a redeeming quality or best part. Isn't it like 5-10 seconds of nothing?

^ It's pretty generic and comes out of absolutely nowhere imo but, even if you do like it, surely it's too short to be any kind of redempion? :chuckle:

 

The redeeming part for me starts with the big G4(?).

I really don't mind "Dig Down". Lyrics are a bit generic, that's true. Even if it doesn't fully work, the attempt to merge gospel choirs and electronic music is at least interesting.

As cringey as the WOOs are on the record, they sound great live.

It doesn't redeem the song at all. The song is terrible, still. I just like the sound of it, for the couple of seconds it plays. Then I'm depressed again when it goes completely nowhere and the crappy chorus starts again.

The start of the solo creates a sense of optimism that the song is just about to build up into something. And just as quickly, it's over and we're back to the bland repetitious groove of the song.

Is this the same guy who wrote Shrinking Universe, New Born, Butterflies & Hurricanes, Hoodoo, Exogenesis? I've never seen a top-flight songwriter degenerate like this over the years. Not a single one. Matt Bellamy will go down in history as the worst rock songwriter ever after having been one of the best!

It's just one song. It's a really bad song, but it's just one. Right after he wrote a bunch of really decent ones, too.

One boring, derivative, panderfest theme song for a shitty TV network...

But, it's a bit early to call them the most embarrassing band of all time, maybe. Or... considering Survival exists... maybe too late...

I've only listened to it a few times, but every single time the vocals at the beginning give me the uncomfortable itchy feeling that the line at the beginning of Aftermath gives me.

At least, Survival kicked some ass live. Even if it was a bit of a prog metal cheesefest. This summer tour could use some of that.
