I promised myself I’d never do requests. But here we are. Ah well. Integrity lost. I’m amazed it lasted this long.
Let’s face it, Muse are rubbish. Like a not very good Radiohead without the content. Ok, that’s harsh. I do quite like this song. It’s not their best but it’s certainly much better than some of their more recent offerings – which is basically David Icke with an overdrive pedal.
Actually, listening to some (early to mid) Muse on Spotify and it really isn’t that bad. I suppose the real problem is that they’re Devon and I’m from Somerset. Yeah, it’s not that. Nobody cares.
Anyway, you get a daytime and a nightime version of this one. It’s sort of meant to be an alternate reality / VR / fantasy world situation, which I believe is the sentiment of the song. And the plug bit is sort of like the monolith in 2001. Sort of.
