We were promised a more dub step sound and, by golly, we got it.
The clinical sounding Pro-Tools introduction to Madness is very reminiscent of the wub-wub stylings of Mr Skrillex and friends, but the arrival of Bellamy’s vocal - ever more akin to late-era Freddy Mercury - quickly puts to bed any concerns that this is going to be a brainless tech-fest.
The slightly disconcerting opening soon develops into something with far more grandeur than has ever been achieved by those in the dub step fraternity when the bass driven build-up of the first 2/3 of the track pays off in dramatic style (around the 2:40 mark) when the guitar kicks in and this rapidly becomes a song that could (and no-doubt will) fill stadia.
This is Queen does dub step, and it’s brilliant.
