The verse and bridge i think is where this song shines.

Also the intro and coming out of the bridge to final chorus is brilliant.


Agree with your last 2 points there

Well, if we can call this a lead single... Yes, without a doubt the best since Vertigo.

Anyone got an mp3 of this? Would love to add it to my phone and hear it on decent headphones.

So is this the first song on the album? I'm 50/50 on it right now.

Re: Vertigo comparisons, this is certainly not as catchy. But it probably won't annoy detractors/casual fans of the band as much as there's no "yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah" type part.

The drum break bit is the best thing theyve done for a long while. Sounds like an Achtung Baby outtake which is no bad thing.

Lots of Adam in first half. Like the false ending. Wish I could make out the full lyrics. Shut up crowd! Where was this made? Anyone know?

The song clocks in at just about 5 minutes too- wasn't expecting that!

Yeah, I like the (older) Muse comparison. Not so much the Killers. I think the Killers are done.

Very solid song, really dug it.

As a rock tune it's "better" than Veritgo and Elevetion maybe? But i doubt it will hit as hard on the radio. Kinda reminded me about the heavier stuff from AB/Zooropa/Pop..

SoE will probably be better than SoI and i really liked SoI.

I have a total run time of about 4:30 for the song itself, unless i missed a good portion at the beginning...

That was fucking awesome. Really kickass song. Not sure why they're choosing not to use The Blackout as the lead single cause that should've be blowing up radios 27 minutes ago. Times have changed and it would never do what Vertigo did but this song is a rock song and a dance song. If they do it right it will be a mega hit live.

Yes the best since Vertigo, but not as cheesy as Vertigo. This one is cooler.

so, first impressions and all and just one listen through on my stupid little headphones, but i found that incredibly impressive. really engaging, lots going on the verses, only the chorus is a little "dad rock" -- but, hey, they're dads and all.

i think good.
