Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't we talking about synth bass as opposed just regular synth playing?

Also, I still think it suits the style of the album.

Most Q readers would hardly fall under "indie kids" category though.

I kinda agree about the lack of real emotional weight in Muse's music, apart from a few individual songs, but ultimately what hooks me about their stuff is the over-the-top drama and the sense of otherworldliness.

I like "The Wanderer". It's one of my favorite songs off Zooropa.
