    Happy 20th Anniversary for one of my Top Five favourite MUSE tracks! Merci to @MuseFrance for the reminder. 'Bliss' made its debut live performance 20 years ago today on 18 August 2000 at the Bizarre Music Festival in Weeze, a small German town northwest of Düsseldorf. Coldplay was also on the same bill earlier that day. Nineteen years later MUSE performed in front of 65,000 fans at Goffertpark in Nijmegen located about 40 km from Weeze across the border with the Netherlands and the river Maas (French: Meuse). Peak chart positions in 2001: #22 UK; #40 Netherlands; and #87 France Number of career live performances: 527 which is the 11th most played song in the band's discography during their worldwide tours First performance in the USA: Bowery Ballroom, NYC in April 2004 after the earlier show at the Cotton Club in Atlanta GA was shortened due to Matt cutting his upper lip on the neck of his guitar during CE Official music video: 35 million views on YouTube which is the 14th most streamed MUSE video on that platform Best live performances: Reading Festival (2011) and Mayan Theatre, Los Angeles (2015) I was fortunate to finally see the band perform it live at the London Stadium Simulation Theory tour gig a year ago on 1 June Video of the first performance:

    Honestly I was never a big fan of Unintended to begin with. I like the instrumentation here, but Matt's soft voice is very hit and miss these days. The cover of We'll Meet Again that he uploaded works so, so well and I'm very excited for a full cover. This however? Probably won't really listen to it again, much like Tomorrow's World.

    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.

    +1 to all of that. All style, no substance any more. The mix is atrocious too, why is the volume so inconsistent? It sounds like every time the bass comes in, the volume of every other instrument kicks up a notch too, with the bass disappearing. The cymbals are almost unlistenably trebly too. I barely got to the end of Psycho before I had a headache from the cymbal crashes. You can barely hear Matt's guitar in Break It To Me either. Muse used to be exciting with minimal bells and whistles. Now they've got every bell and whistle they want, yet the shows are duller than they've ever been. I, for one, am delighted the dire Simulation Theory era is over. The boxset absolutely takes the piss too. Burn it all down. Start again.

    Glad I spent £4:50 renting this rather than spending £100+ on tickets and travel . Simulation Theory pretty much stands as an indictment on Muse's stadium tours. It just seems like more effort went into Matt's jacket design than the music itself. So many songs are now just Matt walking around stage pretending to be a popstar. Matt does really have zero stage presence when his guitar is removed. Watching Matt slap hands with the front row while being minded by his handler is just next level cringe you'd expect from your one directions of the world. The visuals here are just boring as well. When Matt finally does something cool with his guitar, the camera is more interested in the stage extras doing distracting coordinated dance moves. Also Murph looked so inanimate in this movie, I've seen a few YouTube clips where we seemed to move with more fluidity. Not sure why this is letterboxed either, a Muse show is something where you want to use the whole screen. This probably should have been 60 FPS to give a bit more motion. And I really hope they didn't spend too much money on cgi Matt Bellamy pretending to be Harry Potter taking on Murph because that looked fake and cringe as shit. And somehow they want people to fork out £120 for a package with extra tat. I can't help but think of Muse as business people rather than musicians. One enjoyable part was he video for the Void because there was no visuals, no dancers and no fucking backing tracks.

    - SPOILERS IN GENERAL - Finally watched it. It was actually a pretty enjoyable little cheesy movie. I enjoyed the rather ridiculous narrative to complement the actual snippets of narrative that I saw on the stage. The editing, as far as the band shots were concerned, were fine. I didn't like the slow motion but for the most part it was straightfoward edits which is welcome after Rome's constant showing-off for a non-existent 4k release and Drones' need to make artificial shakes on every kick drum. It helps the stage design was just beautiful and a little color correcting makes the stage pop even more. Makes me regret even more we never got a film for the Resistance stadium tour. How might it have looked with the same filming... The narrative intercuts during the songs were a hit or miss for me. Personally, I would have liked to just have seen the band play but I also knew this wasn't just a concert recording and was also finishing up their whole Simulation Theory narrative. When it was present but not too intrusive it was fine, like during Thought Contagion. Some other times I could have done with less of it. Maybe the biggest offender was during Supermassive Black Hole where there's a long panning shot of a CGI arcade machine with the actual footage you want to see in the display window, reduced to only 5% of the screen. But anyways, the benefit of them playing (almost) the same show everywhere is that I can always go to the Rock in Rio or Argentina show recordings if I want no narrative. I wish they didn't chop up the metal medley since it's a collection of chopped up songs already. It is mostly on digital release so I don't think a bit of extra time wouldn't hurt (same with Knights). The whole final showdown against Murph was good fun though. The whole conflict also created a wonderfully unintentionally comic moment after Take A Bow where the narrator asks something like "who will the challenger be" and it's Matt standing awkwardly in his light up suit. Like I was half hoping she'd say "nah, can't be this guy".

    I see this as a home recording, not really a single or official release, and in that context I find the voice and recording quality endearing. I don't see it as an attempt to change or improve the original song, but more like a social media post sharing what he's playing around with and what resonates with him emotionally at the moment.

    Im not sure if its just me but it sounds like the vocals are a bit too loud or something, overall i like it, the piano instrumental is stunning. Could do without the annunciation of the 'Oohs' at the end but yeah, overall not bad!

    Yeah tbh I prefer the instrumental version. Matt's young voice on Showbiz is better suited to the song imo. But still cool to hear a piano version. Hopefully we'll get some more of these stripped-down covers.

    So we’ve had our first crumb of news! ...buuuut unfortunately it makes this thread likely redundant for a good while since work on LP9 is apparently gonna start towards the end of this year, meaning we probably won’t see a release until mid-late 2021 💔 Anyway, let’s get this in early to quell the absolute torrent of posts I’m sure are just around the corner. Other than that, seems like we’ll be returning to the traditional album release format as opposed to the staggered one for ST but that’s all we know so far. No hint of a direction yet. I’m excited at least 😁

    Genuinely kinda staggered by the sense of entitlement. Don’t really know where to begin. It’s literally 4 free videos of a silly performance that they’re putting out as a one-off because people have been asking to see it for 7 years and they thought it’d lift spirits a bit. If someone you knew made you a small gift during a rough time, would you also pick that apart because you wanted something bigger or something specific and pass it off as “sharing my opinion that I don’t like what you’re doing”? Don’t really see what OOM has to do with anything at all either? It’s the only thing like that that they’ve ever done and has a hell of a lot in it so...yeah, it’s not gonna be cheap, idk what to tell ya. It’s also not exactly extortionate. They’re hardly the first to do limited edition collector’s items either, and they did put out more when it initially sold out. You suggest putting out another version for £60 but that’s still massively expensive for a music release, so you’d effectively be asking “would you like to pay the high price or the even higher price?” Sure, you can wish Muse put out more gig content than Christmas presents and concert films every few years. Most of us have asked for that at some point in the past. But, in reality, they put out about as much as (if not more) than the average band. But this really shouldn’t be the thing you choose to voice that gripe over. Radiohead are one band, they do a lot of things other band’s don’t and they’ve also literally only just started this public library thing. The gigs they’ve streamed on YT, tmk, are also pretty standard gigs. The board’s dead anyway, at least until the next major release (hopefully). Stuff like this ain’t gonna revive it. For the record, I don’t even wanna watch the footage myself, but moaning that it’s not good enough for one reason or another is just unnecessarily wanky right now imo.

    FAWY has always been and remains one of Muse's finest songs. It gets me every time. It's one of their most truly heartfelt.

    I am not sure but it feels like the tv-version is a bit edited from the cinema version. Since it was some time ago I watched it in the cinema I might be wrong but here is what I feel is different. When I watch it in a cinema in Stockholm they had signs warning about the "flashing" lights in the movie (epileptic seizures) Those scenes seems to be edited away. I read that you felt that the atmosphere wasn't capture in the TV-version and I have to agree a bit to that. I saw the concert movie in a new movie theater in Stockholm with absolute state-of-art sound (dolby atmos) and picture (HFR high frame rate). Compare that to a 720p tv-version and you lose a lot, specially in t he sound. In the cinema I almost felt that the audience sounded to much 😁 . Just a some thoughts I have.. or maybe we both just have waited to long to see the concert at home and our expectations are to high after all waiting. I have attached some pictures from Stockholm 11 June 2016 Thank for the link to the video I really appreciate it 🙏

    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.

    Would also like to confirm that the alt. Recess is in fact pretty much that heavier live version, just has some piano in it as well. Dunno why some people described it as mellow. Yeah IK, Shine Acoustic’s in the Origin Demos and it’s nice but the final version had so much potential for a lovely remaster 💔 Kettle Lead’s the better of the two imo, most similar to Forameus. Chris has some good backing yells on it, particularly the last scream. Turns out I was actually listening to the MM EP version lmao. The old bootleg download I’d had for a decade must’ve just had the album version instead. Showbiz has some noticeable new (or at least I don’t think I’d noticed them before) panning backing vox during the ‘rhythms of greed’ verses that are pretty fing cool though. Host, too, in the first verse. I think he kinda combined his definition of ‘hook’ with ‘heavy’. The examples he gives to compare are New Born, PIB and the Hysteria bassline. There isn’t really anything like those on the album I guess, and they feel it’s a big part of their identity (and they’re not wrong tbf). That’s why they started to throw stuff like the Pre-Sunburn, Ashamed, Minimum etc riffs into gigs and b-sides ended up having more of that. Though that’s one of the biggest reasons I actually love Showbiz so much, for being the only album to do that really. I feel like I’m potentially spoiling it for people who don’t have it yet though so I’ll try to stop, am just excited.

    So, finished my first peruse through. Really lovely package overall, totally lived up to my hopes in pretty much every way. The remastering’s good, from what I can tell, and the pull-outs and photos progressing along with the story really brings a lot of it home. Interview’s lovely, Beaumont really is the perfect choice. Lotta stuff you’ll already know but there’s still a fair amount of new takes/perspectives from the band and others that I found surprising at times and great to finally find out. Literally my only gripe are the omissions of FWTC, Forameus and Shine Acoustic. I know the first 2 weren’t really officially released but it just seems so weird to leave those 3 things out, particularly Shine, when so much effort has gone into every other facet. But god I love this band, come back soon lads ffs 💔

    Happened since the site overhaul and aye it’s piss annoying People have it, as you might expect. Not me unfortunately (also as you might expect) 💔 All I’ve heard is apparently the alt. Recess is actually a piano version, not the heavier live version from back in the day that we expected. Exciting if true, still waiting to hear about the remaster quality though.

    Hi everybody 😁 well the piano is beautiful, but when Matts starts singing, it sounds so sticked together, there seems to be no flow ... I can imagine he recorded the piano, then the singing pieces, and just glued them together. I know this is how it‘s done in the studio, but is it usually a great production and you don‘t recognize this? Like here, looks like Matt quickly mixed it himself. I can‘t stand the oohs and uuh and aaa‘s... 🤪 no thanks. BUT I LOVE his version of „We‘ll meet again“ I hope he releases it in ful! It took him half a year for Unintended so .... #soon ...

    Cover Songs Performed by Matt Bellamy - First and Latest - 29 Year Span June 1991 - Teignmouth Community College, Devon (UK) - A short excerpt of his performance can be viewed on YouTube 'What'd I Say' - Ray Charles (#6 US Billboard Hot 100 Peak Chart Position in 1959) - Cover versions by several artists including Elvis Presley have also charted, while The Beatles played this song at their Reeperbahn gigs in Hamburg, Germany in the early 60s and Mick Jagger sang it with the band that would become the Rolling Stones. "Piano was the first instrument I really played. I didn’t have any lessons, and though I tinkered with it since I was five, I didn’t really get interested until I was ten or 11. My dad used to play a lot of blues records, Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder. Ray Charles was the one that stuck out; I used to work on my left hand to 'What’d I Say' in sort of this boogie-woogie style. I spent ages working that out, practicing the left hand doing one thing and trying to do chords with the right hand. I went into a talent contest and played a solo version of that piece and actually won the contest. My older brother forced me into this talent contest and, though I was too nervous to do it, I did it anyway. It made me want to get out there and get some gigs and get in a band. When I first got into a band when I was about 13 or 14, I didn’t play piano for about six years because I just got so into the guitar." - Matt Bellamy Source: Innocence_and_Absolution_(200506_Keyboard_Magazine_article) June 2020 - Recorded in Los Angeles, California and posted last week on Matt's Instagram account [See Claudia O's post on the News/Muse on Social Media forum for the link to hear his performance] 'We'll Meet Again' - Vera Lynn (#55 UK Official Singles Peak Chart Position in 2020; #29 US Billboard Peak Chart Position in 1954; Recorded in 1939) Fun Fact: The Resistance by MUSE debuted at #1 on the UK Official Albums Chart on 20 September 2009 selling 148k copies replacing the compilation album We'll Meet Again - The Best of Vera Lynn which moved down one position to #2 after reaching the #1 spot the previous week. Vera Lynn became the oldest living artist at age 92 to achieve this feat with an album.

    News, nEWS, NEWSS (and I know it isn’t strictly about the album but fuck it) 1 - no outright solo record or plans for Matt, but may do more stripped back, ethereal/dreamy stuff (doesn’t like ‘inflicting’ that on Dom/Chris which I kinda suspected tbf). Yes purlease 1.5 - talks about wanting to go back to their roots (again) for LP9, ‘totally resetting’ and ‘going back to square one’, even suggests moving back to Teignmouth. Potentially very exciting if he means something closer to Showbiz and pre-Showbiz rather than Drones 2 - unsure about live shows in 2021 but, if things seem back to normal, they’d be open to doing a show celebrating either OOM or just Origin (just Origin would be weird when they’ve already done that imo, but FUCK for the former) 3 - the Global Citizen gig was supposed to be in Berlin BUT....BUTBUTBUT 4 - this FUCKER has once again hinted at that secret ‘something at the Albert Hall’ by saying it’s something he’s not supposed to talk about. WHAT IS ITTTTTTT. Worth pointing out that he says both shows will still happen if they’re reorganised for next year, but that would seem to suggest that this Albert Hall show isn’t entirely in their hands?

    They can pull a Rammstein, for all I care. Occasional big shows, small tours, maybe a standalone single release here and there, some side projects of mixed quality, and then an album after a 10 year hiatus that doesn't sound stale or forced. I'd rather wait for 10 years for an album that I can listen to for years than waiting for two years for an album that I only listen to for a month.

    Oh thank god, I thought I had something wrong there. I really like the stab feature, the oscillating sounds it makes when you do vibratos.. In live versions, stab definitely isn't full since he has that dark sound , which I think comes from the stab not being full since it also kinda darkens that high end and also sounds.. compressed? (obviously he uses A LOT of effects but this may be a part of it) I compared your expression automations with mine, and looks like the only part that's different is, that dive bomb automation after the +2 octave part (which I was doing it manually), so it made me pretty happy! One thing I had wrong this whole time, that tremolo-ish sound at 1:38, I had it on +2 octave, playing with harmonic of low A's 12th fret. Changed it now to bypass mode though, like it has to be. The low notes' tone is on point, it's just too too good.. For that "external instrument plugin", I have to connect it to the audio interface right? Since I don't own one, I use the bass player's one when she brings it to studio. By the way one technical question (I'm really don't understand these advanced DAW things); My guitar was connected to my pedalboard, that goes to my amp. However, when I connected the usb-midi cable from my whammy to my Macbook, there was a little sound of my guitar coming from the monitors that we connected the interface to?? Do you have an idea where that may be coming from? Thank you for everything by the way, playing this song is pure joy and fun, and I don't think I could have done this without your help

    They said they were filming the O2 shows, no? Tbh, I really hope they don't go big on a release for this tour. It's been hugely underwhelming. Any of the previous tours - Drones, T2L or The Resistance - had much better productions. In fact, I would have loved to have seen the Resistance towers show given the full DVD treatment. That was an amazing set up.
