  3. Ok. We all long for new music, am I right? RIGHT??? I CAN‘T HEAR YOU !!!! Seems that Matt was at Abbey Road. Maybe with somebody else, we don‘t know it. He‘s headed back to LA, Dom was (is) in France, Chris in the UK (I guess). Autumn is on its way, means more album-releases ahead. Or singles, I mean songs. Will Muse release something, if only one song soon? I need some hype guysssss 😁😁😁😁😁

  5. Considering that Muse used the more stripped down version of Algorithm for Simulation Theory, I'm not so sure that the argument of OoS Remixx sounding like what modern Muse would do, holds much water. I think much of the tracks cut out of OoS point towards what the band progressed in Absolution. Had the band another month or two in the studio, I imagine they might have gotten some the more orchestral bits to work. I think during the recording of OoS, there was a lot of emphasis on how the songs would sound live, this might be why a lot of the non-core instrument flourishes were left on the cutting room floor. Remixx is a mixed bag overall, some songs were obviously meant to be improved (PiB, Bliss, Futurism etc.) while others were meant to show off cut content regardless of overall quality of the song(Microcuts, Feeling Good, Space Dementia). It's hard to listen to Remix without contrasting with OoS which has had 20 years to burn itself into my synapses, so with the exception of Futurism I doubt Remix will become my go-to for 2001 goodness.

  6. Ok… call me old-fashioned, but to me they sound too sterile, there‘s no warmth, soulless. It sounds unfinished to me. Matt said they wanted to make them sound more modern, well this is the problem I have with most modern (charts)music… it‘s too perfect! I know those are the original recordings, but did they cut out faults or something like that? Cut off edges? I stick to the original.

  8. I like the CE mix. It uses way more stereo field, it has a lot more guitar power in the riff which I never really liked with the keyboard, and the drums really punch more. Just a lot more clarity to the OoS mix. It does take some of the "spacey" feel the album is known for though. Notably through toning down the synths at the end but also by generally making it feel more like a live performance that sacrifices the interesting sonic character of the album. I like that both exist so I can get both takes.

  9. Rediscovering how great FAWY is. I overlooked this song for so long when I first listened to Muse, came around to loving it, then largely forgetting about it. The guitar playing in the intro and outro, the chorus synths and Matt's voice just work so well in this track.

  11. My toys are well and truly out of the pram and they’ll keep on flyin’ In all seriousness, there are a couple of reasons. For a start, Origin is my favourite album of all time and one of my favourite things in life full stop, has been for 12 years now. I’m naturally hesitant to say the least about the idea of it being significantly retouched in any way, rather than a simple remaster (which we already had and was unnecessary but harmless and fine). Especially when, after listening, I already reeeeally don’t like the result after one song. And, like I said before, personally I don’t really like the way it’s being billed so far. I do get the vibe that it’s being marketed as an “updated” version of the album that’s how it ‘should’ve’ sounded. Yes, the original will always be there, but is that now gonna get left in the dust with this album’s changes becoming the ‘canon’ Origin, especially for the band and younger fans? Is it gonna change live performances of the songs? When I talk about loving something from the record with another fan, are they actually gonna be thinking/talking about the newer version? Basically, this is something I’m incredibly attached to and I’m getting a bad vibe atm that it’s being somewhat invalidated, or at least at risk of it, by a very different band who wanna retroactively mould it to fit something closer to what they would make now.

  14. Yeah that’s what I saw too Can’t just be basically another remaster though, surely? We got that literally a couple of years ago 😂 Edit: ah, now I’m seeing it’s apparently been (at least somewhat) re-recorded? oh jeez oh dear, pls be ok edit 2: the more I think about this potential idea, I really really really really do not want edit 3: muse re-recording fucking origin of symmetry is really an event that needed the old board to still be alive for it edit 4: potentially false alarm, I’m not seeing that it’s “unused takes” - you’d better fecking hope but, even still, I don’t like this kinda revisionist vibe of literally your magnum opus. Like, are these versions and this tracklist now gonna become the ‘official’ versions? ‘Cos kinda no pls

  16. Ha! I remember this! This was when they were touring the US at the tail end of the Absolution tour. The time of the setlist anagrams. They introduced early versions of Assassin, Glorious, Crying Shame and Exo Politics to the crowds in this period. There were muffled recordings going around, and the board tried to decipher them. These four new songs kept having different names on the set list, a direct communication between the band and the board. Song names were anagrams, which were just fun at first and later turned into a bit of a treasure hunt. (This is where Debase Mason's Grog comes from, for example, a name used for Assassin that's an anagram of Message Board Song.) Anyway, Glorious at the time was listed as New Song (DES) on the setlist. This was not an anagram, but a note to their roadie, Des, that he had to set something up for that song (A specific tuning for the guitar or something, I don't remember). I speculated that it stood for Dead End Street and trolled the board into thinking that was the actual title. It stuck around for a while. I even heard an anecdote that the band picked up on it and started calling their roadie Des "Dead End Street" for a bit. Anyway, back to those muffled recordings. In the threads for the new songs there were multiple serious and trolling attempts to decipher the lyrics. Someone heard Pee Candle in Exo Politics, and that was the Muser name for that song for a while. As for Glorious (Or Dead End Street ), there were many different people trying to decipher a very muffled early recording, and the above interpretation was definitely mine. Anyway, that's the story kids. Funny this made its onto a lyrics site.

  17. Hype train will leave the station next year for sure but hoping to at least get the all aboard this year with a single. At the very least, I'm hopeful that we wont have to get too deep into 2022 before we're full steam ahead, especially since they have a handful of fest dates.

  21. No they don't? The old version is still up on youtube, and the bass definitely kicks in half a second earlier on the early version (which shouldn't be a surprise really, since it so clearly cuts off the beginning beat of the song)

  22. It seems they are in the chilling phase now, racing through high grass on a meadow in Teighnmouth 😅 like Matt said in an interview, going back to living there and going back to their roots musically 🤔 Yes, I‘ll stick with my theory, album in autumn 2022 😬 but one or two singles right before the festivals next year, to gather new fans maybe .. as if they‘d need them, but 🤑

  23. Nah at least Something Human and Dig Down started as the stripped down versions. Matt said as much around the time of the album release. I remember because it was such a dumb thing. They began the writing process by talking about how great it was to be able to work on individual songs without having to consider the rest of the album. They also talked about the freedom it gave them to go in any direction they felt like with every song. Then when the album was released Matt revealed that they wrote the gospel version of Dig Down and thought it didn't fit with the other songs they had written so they rewrote it all to fit into a synthwave/electronic rock sound. So dumb, and so Muse. And we can just look at the OoS remix to see that their attitude to songwriting has changed. They specifically said that they removed the strings because it was a bit too much and the songs became too all over the place and overpacked. Same thing with songs on Absolution. Abso also had songs like Blackout, Endlessly and Ruled By Secrecy. None of which have any over the top ridiculousness that basically every Muse ballad has these days.

  24. I didn't notice any volume issues with New Born, but what I am noticing is a super high pitched noise. Like, not an instrument but pulsating overtones that are really fucking with my ears. Very noticeable during the outro riff. And about this album as a whole, it's so clearly not "the way it was always supposed to sound" or whatever Matt said. They've literally just tacked on every single thing that was previously left out due to...actual music-related reasons. I know I might be reading into it too much but it really solidifies my biggest issue with Muse these days. They simply don't understand subtlety or "sometimes less is more" anymore.

  25. I wouldn’t say it’s too perfect, but it definitely lacks soul. It’s always hard to compare something like this to the way the original made me feel 20 years ago, so I’m not sure how much of the soullessness is imagined, but mix is undoubtedly harsher and sharper. I see it more as a cabinet of curiosities, an interesting insight into the elements that were left out. Not an album to lay back and listen to start to finish (which I did to the original countless times).

  26. Interesting someone mentioned reverb on the drums. They sound cleaner to me? Took the reverb out of the cymbals in PiB, which I find quite nice! I actually adore the drum tone on all these remixes. THE STRINGS ON SPACE DEMENTIA THO

  27. Space Dementia sounds terribly clipped. Previously unused strings are a fun addition. Different drum shuffle in the bridge to outro is cool too. Outro misses beef of the original.

  31. Positive: I love the strings and that you can hear the organ much better! It is cleaner. There‘s a bass which fits perfectly! Negative: the loud drums. Matt‘s gasping for air and you can hear his mumbling of the lyrics better. For me it‘s a different song now, with a different feeling to it. Reminds me of the RAH performance 😊

  33. While I am similarly reluctant about these new mixes but I must admit that I've been playing the new CE pretty much daily thanks mostly to the fact that I have really cheap ear buds for running and the cleaner, cranked up mix of CE hits just right atm.

  35. Literally knew this would be exactly the case before I even heard the strings were back in. No shock that they’re apparently added back in for other songs too :’) See, some of the wording of this is what I don’t like. They’re not talking about it like an alternative/optional version imo, it’s like a revised update. Big “this is what it *should’ve* been like” vibes to me. “Rescuing parts”, “making great strides” and featuring “all facets of its intricate original production”. Go awaaaaaayyyyy. This stuff wasn’t ‘hidden’ or ‘lost’, it was fecking intentionally cut for artistic reasons that made it beloved by everyone else as well. Ugggggh honestly more power to the people who do enjoy it but this feels so icky to me. Origin is a product of its time and these decisions were made intentionally, and they’re all part of why it’s your most acclaimed album. Don’t try to imply that you’re now ‘restoring’ some kind of secret real version just because this is how you’d do it 20 years later, as completely different people.

  36. The opening drums are weak as fuck, but other than that, I like a lot about the new mix. It's not gonna replace the original, but it's fun to hear certain parts more clearly. It's interesting how they back in 2001 went "nah, the strings are too much" but in 2021 it's "yeah, put those strings back in". Very telling of the difference between 2001 and 2021 Muse.

  37. Do you know what would‘ve been a much better release? Oos live, in full, at Reading 2011 - on Vinyl. For Record Store Day or not, I don‘t care. Yes, the one from the boxset. Why not do the fans a favour? There are many who couldn‘t afford the boxset.. Who‘s drunk idea was it to mix a masterpiece?? Or did Warner say „Let‘s make it modern!“ 😳😕 edit: for me a remix is changing a song, like they did remixes of songs on b-sides! Change them to reggae, or techno or whatever, done by DJs... I get it that this remixing means something else, ok!

  46. Simulation Theory at the Olympic Stadium was SO full on with technology and audiovisuals that I was hoping they didn't run into technical issues! I always wondered if Matt could see the slightest thing with those chunky LED glasses on On a slightly image related note, I had a massive poster printed on tough vinyl of one of my musical hero's (Al Jourgensen of Ministry), and it's accompanied me through aot of crazy times, more house moves than I can remember! It even got stolen my a dodgy landlord, which almost resulted in a brawl at a building site to get it back, absurd situation... Either way, I absolutely love this one image of Chris, is just sums up everything he embodies about the experience and passion of how he plays bass on stage. I've just ordered a Status Graphite bass, so every morning when I wake up, I look at this massive poster of Chris looking like an absolute badass, and think "Yeah... That whole vibe that image immortalised, that ultimate high of living for the moment, playing music is what I live for".
