Best Songs On Muse's Drones


The Top TenXW

1The Handler

One of the most interesting, heavy, memorable and overall fun tracks off of this record - UniqueUniverse

It's one of those songs I had to listen to a lot to like. I like it but my favorite is dead inside.

Reapers and the handler are amazing

Best Muse song so far! Its perfect!

Easily the best. Handler 2nd probably, and I'm kinda glad Dead Inside is so low on the list, good song but overplayed to death and weak compared to the others.

This song is just awesome! I just heard it and I am now hooked! - Songsta41

Easily the best song on this album. This album wasn't really really good, but this song, along with a few others, saved its ass.
My list:
The Handler
The Globalist (didn't live up to the hype but still a good song)
Dead Inside

My new favorite muse song of all-time

3The Globalist

I was excited to finally see a ten minute Muse song - until it didn't get as heavy as I hoped it would. - Songsta41

Honestly this track is so beautifully crafted. Not too heavy, not too soft and was really a compilation of all that made Muse so great throughout the years.

They did it. Their "10 minute Prog-Rock nightmare." And. It. Is. GLORIOUS.

This song sucks, the lyrics are dumb and juvenile and the music is generic and crap, this was the worst song on the album, Drones is in my opinion Muses 2nd best album how is this number 1? - Quart

My favorite song from this album! Music is awesome!

This is one of the best songs on the album it sounds amazing the only set back is that the lyrics aren't very good but it's still amazing - Quart

Catchy and memorable tune, but so primitive lyrics - UniqueUniverse

6Dead Inside

Drones is a bad album. Muse must certainly work more on their lyrics, they seem poor. Dead Inside is the only song that I find listenable. I also like the music video.


Why is Mercy so far down? This was the BEST song of the album. People rave about Reapers and The Handler, but this song outclasses them by years. And what's wrong with it having traces of Starlight? Starlight was amazing!

Drones is a very odd album. It's half hard rock and half soft rock. This however is the track that seems to blend these two genres together best. It's also easily the best written and most original song on the album.

Never though about it bearing similarity to Starlight but to me it's just a few steps away from Revolt with the chorus vocals.

This song is very good and I love it - Quart

Sporting a U2 "One" sound-alike riff, Aftermath most clearly defines the album. While the other songs in Drones are about revolution and loss, Aftermath defines what Matthew Bellamy himself proclaimed the meaning of Drones - the need for human empathy. - kanadesong

The bass line makes me think of early Coldplay.

Aftermath is the best track on this album, the guitar riff sounds so good!

This was probably my favorite song! Don't understand why it gets so much hate! Defector was brutal! That song is over rated!

By far the most forgettable song of the album. - UniqueUniverse

Hey muse makes a 90's sitcom theme the song - Quart
