It does have good bookends. The beginning and ending songs really do open and close the album which is a good concept.

I was watching 'Skyfall' the other day and thought of 'Welcome To My World' when watching the titles for some reason, it just seems to fit. Tranquilizers, bleeding, souls...
DM - A Bond theme? Epic.

Work of art! I was very much intrigued by the bassline, so much anticipation. Dave's vocals as beautiful as ever. Then sounds build up slowly, hypnotically climaxing at the chorus when Martin's vocals kick in. The lyrics are exquisite & live? I'll never forget feeling that bassline in my chest ever.
It still is the kind of song that I can't listen to while doing something else, everything else has to wait when this song is played.

Its a great opener but not on the same level as Higher Love. That was epic.

The baselines are one of the best openers to a DM concert ever! Though Higher Love, the excerpt from Rush and Painkiller are still superior openers in my opinion.

The live version of WTMW actually made me appreciate the song much more as I initially wasn't a big fan of the song.
