Not sure if this is controversial, but it's weird for sure:

I would kill to get the slap tone Chris uses both in UD and Panic Station. Mmmmh, that warm, thicc bassy tone with just a hint of od on it is just soooo god damn awesome. The application sure could use some work but if they ever go back to slap songs for the love of god don't touch that tone.

The 80s is overrated, as is neon. 

In terms of its style, I really dislike the recent album artwork for ST and the merch designs. They just aren't wearable. I loved anything by Storm Thorgerson and I loved the Drones stuff because it had a similar feel. 

I love the individual graphics they made for the songs from ST, but seriously so fed up of this 80s neon aesthetic everywhere you look. I get the retro feel but it doesn’t all have to look the same. IMO

The Resistance stadium outdoor shows were all bloody fantastic, as was the stage for the festival run. Simple, effective and didn't hold back the band from mixing up the sets.

Watched of a multi-cam of the second Wembley night 2010 last night (with the rotations from night 1 included) and it brought back so many great memories, by far the best 'standard' performance I've ever seen them give. Of course, Leeds 2011/Psycho tour/SBE were special occasions but they really were on fire that night. MK Ultra, Map and my first performance of Bliss all back to back, Matt's People of the Sun into and the outro tapping in Hysteria, the Glasto '04 riff in CE and RBS (my all-time fav) completely out of the blue...they were brilliant that weekend but seemed more loose than on the first night. Top 5 Muse gig, maybe even top 3.

And yet, for all the controversy at the time, looking back...the first night's set was also no slouch.
