Riff: Muse – “Big Freeze”

Oct 2, 2012

I lost before I started/I’m collapsing in stellar clouds of gas.

from Big Freeze lyrics by Muse

If it was Freddie Mercury in “Madness,” then “Big Freeze” is Bellamy’s not so subtle way of channeling his inner Bono. Lyrically it’s on to something, but it’s so stylistically lazy that it takes a disciplined hand not to skip over it.
