"I'll make you feel pure"

So I've had a chance to listen to the new Muse album and, like all of their albums, it's a bit of a mixed bag. I love the tracks in the vein of lead single Uprising and the Queen-like United States of Eurasia, but I'm much less impressed with their three-part symphony at the end of the album, which ends up sounding like a lot of pretentious noodling. It is, of course, still very early, so these opinions could change. Although it seems like the band repeats itself a lot melodically, I love when they explore new directions like the robot funk of Undisclosed Desires. It's a slinky, totally radio-friendly piece of pop that sounds different from anything else on the album and would be a perfect follow-up to Uprising. Love it.

I'm not sure why, but this was the first song on the album I listened to--it really is a great song! Very instant and radio-friendly, but still them.

It doesn't have a very radio-friendly title, but it definitely sounds like a single to me.
