At first I thought it was awful but I did actually like the bridge. It's very U2-ey. I could easily imagine Bono singing it. In that sense it reminds me of Madness.

The first minute or so sounds like Maroon 5 , after that it improves but just a tiny little bit.

I like this. The last half or so gets better. I don't follow this band for their deep lyrical content, but the cheese here is fine indeed. Fun.
That Sgt. bit better not show up anywhere else now. I'm back on the wagon of looking forward to this release.

I also think it's better than Psycho.

Well that was dull. "At least it's better than Psycho" is a pretty backhanded compliment.

Yeah, I have to say I'm not encouraged at all from either of these songs. Combined with the last two albums, neither of which I liked except a handful of songs, Drones may lead me to jump off the Muse ship for now. I hope I'm wrong and it gets much, muuuuuuuuch better going forward.

That song is almost as bad as Psycho. Bellamy's vocals are just horrendous, someone needs to tell him less is more.

The bridge is kind of okay, but everything else is typical modern day Muse cringe.

That's kinda my fear too. But damn, that would suck so bad. Especially since I'm not connecting with new U2 either... If SoE and Drones are both bad, I might lose my two favourite bands at the same time.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Dead Inside is one of their worst songs ever.

I don't think Dead Inside is that bad. It's OK. I think there's a welcome degree of drama from the bridge to the final chorus.

That delivery of "...but you're DEAD INSIDE" is so cringeworthy that it nearly destroys the song though.

I love The Resistance and quite a lot of tracks from The 2nd Law; the two new songs are ok but not really grabbing me. I like the Psycho riff but there's not much else going on there, and "your ass belongs to me now" is bad even by Matt's standards. And they've done much, much better funky songs than Dead Inside.

I just had a look on setlist.fm and noticed that they're not playing anything off The 2nd Law and only one or two songs off Resistance (and good ones at that). So that makes me a lot more excited to see them this year. Let's hope they keep it that way for the festivals as well. I've never seen them live so a set full of Origin of Symmetry, Absolution and Black Holes and Revelations is all I want really.
