Sorry if this has been answered, but what does the voice say at the very end? To me, it sounds like "and soon I'll be 30"... lol?

I can't explain it but I've found that some Muse songs are so mad you just get used to it. When I read reviews saying how mad KoC is I don't even think about it anymore but looking back on it...it was pretty ridiculous when you first heard it.

 

I'm slowly beginning to not mind the Eurasia bit at all, even love it even though (or perhaps because) its hilarious.

 

LOL! :D

 

I remember reading comments about KoC before the album came out, and fans truly put the song on a shrine and of course I was hyped about it. When I finally heard the song I found it to be... Meh! :indiff:, but it all changed when I finally heard them play the song live, and then I fell in love with it.

Okay, it has actually grown on me a lot. At first the "United states" bit was a bit annoying to listen to, but now it seems to fit much better into the song.

 

I like the song, but i don't want the rest of the album to be like this. It's good, but it's at its best as a "one off" rather than the general direction of the band.

 

No worries in my mind though, seeing as three tracks on the album are parts of a symphony. ;)

The song title is a little cheesy. Some parts of the song are cheesy. But the song itself is brilliant because of its irony.

 

I was having a "premiere" today with my mate and I suddenly recognized the "clapping" from the toilete. :D

 

And I honestly think people are overreacting with the Queen influence. Yes, it can be sensed in some places, but come on. It's not that big of a deal. There's plenty of Muse in the song. ^^

The first time I heard Eurasia I immediately thought of Bohemian Rhapsody like everyone else probably did with the first transition, however I also caught whiff of another song I love, that being Dream Theater's In the Name of God.

 

What I mean...

 

1:42 in Eurasia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKxN4JyGtoE

 

0:30 in In the Name of God: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SfwDA6lEho

 

This might not be a particular nod from Muse to DT, but those of you familiar with DT may know that they did a tribute to Muse in their song "Never Enough", which somewhat fused the Stockholm Syndrome guitar riff with the Hysteria bassline. The result, is unsurprisingly, fantastic, so check it out, too.

 

Anyway, to be honest, both songs I linked above remind me of a kinda "Egyptian" beat, reminiscent of the Egyptian Pyramid level in Sonic 3 & Knuckles lol, but I definitely get a similarity. Just me, or?

well what you posted just sounds middle eastern, thats the only connection i see.

(whatever it was id definately like to keep it far from muse,:phu:)

for some reason, the new muse song to me connects to ELO's Fire on High

I definitely got the Middle-Eastern thing, too, but your comment about Dream Theater was kinda silly. They're a truly amazing band and one I would have thought most Muse songs would greatly appreciate due to some of the similarities the bands have. DT are total virtuosos in their musicianship and are infinitely talented. Seriously, don't bash them because you love Muse, check them out properly. Prog-rock at is finest.

 

But that's not the point of this thread.

I absolutely love the Queen influence behind the song and the fact that its constantly changing from a quiet ballad to an instrumental interlude and so on. There is some sort of uniqueness to it even though it has influences from other places/bands. I'm not sure about the ending though but I'm sure it'll grow on me :)

im not bashing them because i like muse, im bashing him because i disliked the composure and harmony of that song.

its very creed/nickelback/tool sounding.

ugh

EDIT: I take back the nickelback part.

after listening to it, nothing can be as bad as nickelback.

but i hold my ground with everything else.

I don't necessarily LOVE DT, but can admit they are extremely talented. I doubt they were making an homage to dream theater though, I think it's just coincidence.

I don't see what all the fuss is aboot. The ending of USoE is one of the best endings to a Muse song ever. It's absolutely epic. Can't wait to see how collateral damage fits into it.

Night, your piano cover of usoe is frickin awesome in this amount of time.

 

I don't spose you'd be able to send me the transcription? Do you have Sibelius?

The ending is good, just because it takes away any doubt and firmly confirms this is meant to be comedy... That way I don't feel bad for laughing through the whole thing..

If you don't like the resistance, you don't like muse...

 

It's the first album they've done with no input from producers etc, and so for the first time it is 100% their own work, not just 70% or 80% or even 90%. For the first time, this is them, pure and raw doing exactly what they want to, how they want to.

I think I just found my new least favourite Muse song. Sorry, I can't even pretend to like this. Just so overblown and pretentious and, well, bad :noey:

 

+1. It's amusing and kitsch, and it sounds to me like a self-parody.
