To be honest, if I had their fan base, I'd probably see how much I could get away with too.
The official MUSE OLYMPIC song
Fair point- I've just paid £55 for tickets to see them in October while saying "Well they used to be great live". Muse fans- we have nobody to blame but ourselves.
I'm not a Muse fan so to me it just sounds like all their other stuff, they have a distinctive sound, mainly due to that bloke's vocals....
....that said i dont mind it, it builds nicely and the strong guitars were pleasing to hear as i had feared the official Olympic song would be some bland, turgid effort with singing school children or something equally as cringeworthy....failing that i half expected the organisers to go completely in the opposite direction and get someone achingly 'yoof' like Professor Green or someone of his ilk to embarrass the nation on a global scale.
This song is about as good as i could have hoped for given the circumstances.
I only half-listened to it just now on 6 Music but it didn't offend.
I thought it was on a par with much of their output...mind you, I saw them live about 10 years ago, and I thought they were rubbish then, too.
