I would class myself as a fan. The last two albums however have followed a similar pattern brilliant comeback singles with slightly underwhelming albums. Unfortunately this single isnt doing much for me on first listen, but who knows it might make for a better album


#4

Given that I usually like about half of each album, this might give me ten tracks. That said:

‘Now the sea eats the sky
But they say it’s a lie
And there’s no birds left to fly’

:joy:


#5

lyrics are daft but enjoying this new track. Going to swerve Victoria Warehouse because it still sounds like it’s a bad venue (not been myself but never heard anyone say a good thing about it). Might try out Digbeth Arena instead. My missus is a massive fan so could be a nice night away


#6

The new song is very bad.


#7

As I said in the album hype thread rubbish song. It is so plodding it is unbelievable.

I have only been to the Victoria Warehouse once and found it oddly really claustrophobic. It might have changed since it was 5/6 years but, I found it an odd venue and if we didn’t live in Mediacity at the time an absolute pain to get to and from.


#8

This is so underwhelming.


#9

Stopped listening after Holy Fire (which was mostly good). What’s happened to his voice, he sounded like Kermit at first.


#10

quite amazed this band aren’t viewed with the same contempt that Muse are at this point


#11

Kermit as in the rapper from Shaun Ryder’s post Monday’s project Black Grape, or Kermit as in Miss Piggy’s on-off significant other?


#12

The latter…


#13

Hopefully they’ll play Glasto. Looks on the cards from the tour dates there.
But this song isn’t great on first listen…


#14

Don’t mind this. Bit plodding, but light years away from the silliness of Muse as per above.


#15

Sounds like Tears For Fears


#16

Shouldn’t these lads be Horses by now


#17

I think they’ve saved enough grace with their first three records but the last one sounded like cynical MOR arena indie-pop. It feels like they’re taking a similar trajectory with Biffy Clyro who followed up a commercially successful album with a double record so we’ll see.

#19

Ooof that new song is dull.


#20

That new song is so dull. That said, I’ve think they’ve been dull since the 2nd album onwards.
