I know Drones was not at all well received by my two fellow bloggers but I quite liked it. Strangely I actually prefer Muse in their heavier ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ territory to the keyboard driven pop anthems and they don’t come much heavier than ‘Psycho’. As has been discussed, my liking for guitar led rock has ebbed in recent years and bands like Royal Blood pass me by, but Muse still seem to hit my sweet spot, musically and lyrically..
I think Andy and I first heard this riff a few years ago when we had ringside seats at the 02 and the band were playing palate-cleansing riffs between some of the songs. This was developed into the beast that is Psycho, seen here live at the Roskilder festival.
