I don't know why everyone always cries when Muse makes a new song or album. It's always "Waaahh I miss their old sound" or "Waaahh this sounds like so and so" or "Waaahh it needs to sound like Absolution and Plug-In Baby". Why are you "fans" even around still? If you want their old stuff then buy their old albums and move on. Anyways, this is a great song. Sounds like Madness without the pressure or influence of doing dubstep sounds for the sake of trends.
Muss changes their sound as every album comes out. This song does not mean that their next album is going to be JUST LIKE this song. Get over yourselves, Muse changes. Its what makes them MUSE! If it wasn't for a change in genre like they enjoy doing, Muse wouldn't be what it is today. So shut up and enjoy the song or get out. Very similar to Madness but with a very powerful message. 5/5 👏
To be perfectly honest, while its fun to listen to, it's just like a wannabe madness. The lyrical value is much more powerful however, where it lacks in riffs it makes up for it in this aspect.
It's okay... I mean, I love Muse and they're my favorite band but I personally prefer their old-school BHAR, Absolution sound. I do like the fact that they're branching out though and trying different sounds. The variety is nice. Matt's voice is amazing as always.
This is a real change for muse, I find this song very uplifting, and can't stop listening, more synth rock !!!!....... But was expecting a bigger guitar solo. Have to say the best song out at the moment, we need real music like this.
An incredibly shallow song that could have been saved if the climax had more punch, it felt like it built up to absolutely nothing. Terrible lyrics even for Muse. I had hoped that Drones was a step in the right direction, but based on this song, I'm expecting a sequel to The 2nd Law, Muse's worst album by far.
