  5. Yesterday
  6. I‘m in with Absolution. Not so sure with Bh&r .. my CD sounds pretty good! But as I don‘t have OOM yet, I can‘t say for sure if I‘ll change my mind then 😂
  7. Absolution and Black Holes were in the most need of a re-release. I hope it happens.
  8. Tbh really didn’t need my obsession with this band to peak again right in the middle of a big fat break Also the pain of Black Holes’ mix/master is actually even worse now that we have these absolute beauties Basically guys I think OOM was actually a mistake
  9. Guys! Stay here! Write about anything, but stay! who else got the box?
  10. Last week
  11. Moving on to the Origin of Symmetry vinyl, I wouldn't say that the differences are as noticeable as they were with Showbiz. Which is probably for the better because, as has been mentioned previously, OoS really wasn't in serious need of remastering anyway. On first listen, I noticed the first significant differences during Citizen Erased. Comparing the vinyl remaster to a hi-res MQA stream on Tidal, the newer version seemed to have the bass pulled forward and a wider soundstage while the Tidal stream was more centered, louder and in-your-face so to speak. Comparing the LP to a hi-res stream might be too "apples and oranges" to be considered a real analysis of the remaster but subtle differences were there. Either way, the discs looked lovely once again.
  12. I haven't had the time to check out the CD's or read through the book yet but Showbiz sounds great on vinyl. It's not a good basis for me to speak to the remastering because I've only ever heard the album digitally before. I can say that the sound is nice and clean. Some really hearty bass rumbles through the verses of Cave. Definitely more listenable than my old Showbiz CD. Falling Down sounded especially warm, full and bluesy. I kinda wish Muse had more songs in their catalogue with this feel. It looks real pretty on the turntable as well.
  13. Correct! Thanks for pointing this out. I just compared this and the original Showbiz CD on headphones. They’re there on the original CD, but much less noticeable and centered instead of panned. Nice alternate mix of Host, I don’t know the origin of that one. The alternate scream in Falling Down is great, that was the first difference I noticed upon listening. Pink Ego Box now has a new “You’ve Got Post” voice that is different than the one on Instant Messenger, yet the incoming message chime sound after the voice still sounds the same as the old one on Instant Messenger. By the way, did you know that Map Of Your Head was remixed for inclusion on Hullabaloo Soundtrack? I noticed that after seeing the December 2001 mixing credit on that release. I went to the Hyper Music 3CD set to hear the original mix of the song, which I like much better. Origin Of Muse contains the Hullabaloo mix. Has anyone else found any other alternate mixes on Origin of Muse not listed as such?
  14. Thank you, I’ll give that a try tomorrow evening!
  15. Use the program Exact Audio Copy (EAC). Insert the CD, run gap detection (press F4), then select track 1 Cave (it should be highlighted in red) and click “copy selected tracks index-based.” exactaudiocopy.org
  16. Mine still hasn't shipped. Remind me never to order from the Muse shop ever again.
  17. So has anyone figured out a way to rip track 0 of the newton abbot demo using windows? It doesn’t show up for me on windows media player or on the file explorer but I was able to hear it play on my Xbox
  18. A lot (if not all) of the 2003 people carried over from the last forum so in a way they're all kind of equally the oldest unless those join dates are remembered. The oldest date on a quick skim who is still posting seems to be @Caff
  19. I mean, who is the longest still active member here? Definately not me ... who has acess to a statistic? 🧐🤪
  20. Amazon UK Bestsellers Rank - Update for 10 December 2019 Origin of Muse #1 in Vinyl #4 in Alternative Rock #9 in Box Sets (CDs & Vinyl) #68 in CDs & Vinyl Official Albums Chart Update (based on UK sales across 6-8 December 2019) #1 WHO - The Who (12th studio album) #33 Origin of Muse - MUSE (Early years vinyl box set) with a price tag exceeding 100 quid https://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/the-who-on-course-for-first-uk-number-1-in-almost-50-years-with-their-twelfth-studio-album-who__27946/ 'Take A Bow' - Opening track from Black Holes and Revelations released in 2006 Corruption by world political leaders just as prevalent in 2019 as it was in 2003 when the track was first performed in Helsinki as a piano outro after 'Citizen Erased' Inspired by Philip Glass Alternate Title 'Hex' Used in the trailer for the 2009 film Watchmen Likely written at the end of the Absolution sessions with the lyrics at least in part a protest against the Iraq War Moves through three stages: classical; techno; and a heavy apocalyptic rock ending Its structure is mathematical, the main idea being a formula with neither chorus nor verse Chords move in fourths upwards, by using the augmented fifth in between to move. The key of the song changes a total of 13 times, each time moving to the nearest key in the circle of fifths. It begins in D major before following the circle counter-clockwise to E♭. After the lyric "Our freedom's consuming itself," the song goes clockwise back to F. After the techno mid-section, the song again begins moving counter-clockwise around the circle, changing key 6 times before finishing in B which is the key of the second track 'Starlight'.

  21. I totally made sure to just try and tear that box in the most convoluted way I could. Also that first shot took me so long. I hanged my phone off of a mic stand.
  22. Clearly the high point of this clip was the epic fail trying to tear the cardboard open before opting for the much simpler pull-tab. 😂 Great job though. Mine just arrived an hour ago and I haven't gotten around to opening it yet. I'll definitely go for the pull tab though. Thanks for the instructional video.
  23. Was hoping to get this for xmas but noticed its either massively sold out or the price has gone through the roof depending where you look. Anyway, after a lot of indie shop hunting I managed to find it new for £115
  24. Not OOM specific but I’m a big fan of the new final Falling Down scream as well. Heard about if for a while on certain streaming places but never really bothered to seek it out. Used to hate both the screams in FD but now that there’s a progression to how each chorus is delivered it kinda works. Pretty sure he’s sung both at times tbf.
