Sorry for this being late!
I dont think wed ever go for the official World Cup song or anything like that, I mean, its a sure-fire way to end your career, isnt it? says Chris when we suggest to him that Invincible is becoming a bit of a footy anthem. Uplifting lyrics, a marching band accompaniment and almost tear inducing harmonies all contribute to that sense of patriotism which one experiences when watching England / [Insert Home Countrys Team] finally beat Team X. Muse have always been one for over-the-top rifftastic and, well, plain silly songs, and Invincible is in no way an exception.
Upon first listening to this track, you never quite know where its going to take you starting with a sliding guitar introduction and rattling drum sidekick, the song gathers momentum in the same form as Take a Bow, with Bellamys voice bellowing out together were Invincible, together were Invincible , momentary interludes of bass and guitar swimming alongside the chorus it all fits together so perfectly, creating a path for Muse to walk along triumphantly. It ends with a thumping drum alongside Chriss bass, with Matts guitar going berserk in the foreground, a spectacular finale to a spectacular achievement of musical composition.
