Does the quiet breakdown in the song remind you of some other band?? I have this inkling they borrowed the idea off someone, but I can't quite put my finger on it at the moment.

 

EDIT: Oh nevermind, I remember now: it kinda reminds me of I Want You (She's So Heavy) by the Beatles. The slow breakdown at the end, I mean.

since the bbc broadcast from teignmouth dominates the album version, i will happily listen to that instead. :)

Yeah. Muse should have released a live version of this alongside Uprising. I would have been sold.

The riff at the end is WAY too short. It could last an eternity for all I care.

 

I both love and hate how it's so short. It kinda makes me want to listen to the entire song again as build up to that AWESOME ending riff.

 

This. Song. Is. Immortal.

The only thing I don't really like about the studio version, is Matt's voice, when he sings the "Counter-balance this commotion" parts. Live, his voice is pretty soft, but it's sort of annoying in the studio version.

The only part I don't like about the studio is the outro riff sounds tame and quite compared to the rest of the song. Does anyone else agree?

The only thing I don't like in this song are the "hey" in the background of the chorus. I found them distractive and redundant. Everything else tho is brilliant.

Tame? I go nuts to it.

Hmm, I'm not sure really, ok, tame is too strong a word, and when I re-listened to it again today, it did seem better, as a result, I'm liking the track more. :awesome:

I think might just be my favourite Muse song ever! :D The live version was even more awesome, but I'm still enjoying the studio version.:D

It's not the best Muse song ever but it is a very, very good addition to the muse back catalogue. I think they now have a proper closing song for the first part of the set and it combines the best of New Born, Citizen Erased and a little bit of Dead Star: probably the best song on the new album. Love it.

I think it's a pretty weak closer really when compared to other 'heavy' songs. It'd be better as an opening song.

Compared to the reviews and initial hype for Unnatural Selection, it doesn't feel epic at all but rather a fun rock song. It's no New Born, Citizen Erased or Stockholm Syndrome, but rather a slightly longer The Small Print. Close a set with this? Hell no! Open? Hell yes!

I was singing along to this in the car yesterday and adding Daron/Serj vocals.

 

Haha, it's very Hypnotize/Mezmerize in parts isn't it?

I think it's an awesome track. As soon as I heard the riff my head simultaneously started banging.

Very much like New Born with the ascending riff, sweet mid-section and nice intro aswell.

If Matt's guitar tone was a little less trebly, it would sound like something Josh Homme wrote. Kinda nice mix of System of a Down, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath (mid-section lumbering riff), maybe a little Metallica chuggery at the end and of course Muse.

I finally got the album and this song is IMO pure awesomeness. The riff makes me want to dance, and not many songs do that.

I can look past the New Born-esque riff now to see it's quite alright.

 

I just noticed the lyrics in the booklet are wrong though. In stead of "The lucky don't care at all, no hope for fate" he sings "The lucky don't care at all, no chance for fate"

Is it just me or does the riff sound incredibly flat and lifeless? I'm not saying it isn't catchy as it really is and no doubt it will be awesome live but it just doesn't seem to have much oomph. I mean compared to the riff in New Born, Stockholm or at the end of Knights.

Well, I think it's more of a moving riff then a moshing riff.
