  1. The rest of the album wasn't recorded and mixed during that time. They remixed those songs with Cornfield at Sawmills, but then went on to record the rest of the new songs with John Leckie at Real World Studios and The Astoria, a houseboat studio. This is taken directly from Out of This World, page 116 and 117 in the 2014 edition. Also, on the musewiki page for OoS it literally says: "New Born", "Plug In Baby", "Bliss" and "Darkshines" were recorded with David Bottrill in the middle of touring in late 2000, in Ridge Farm Studios, Surrey. The songs were recorded as if in a live situation, within a few days. The band later had to re-master the songs with John Cornfield after the tour was over, in order to make them suitable for release, as they were not satisfied with the mixing of these tracks. Matt attributes this to the effects of the hallucinogenics, which were "great for exploring new territory", but "certainly not good for finishing things off". It doesn't say that "Some songs like PiB and Bliss are re-arranged from the versions the band had being played live", it says that the songs were recorded as if being played live.
  2. That's not really how it went down. The mushroom session did happen during the recording session with Bottrill in December, and the result was apparently so crap that they had to remix the entire thing afterwards. So they were sent to John Cornfield who created the mixes for the final products. You can read about it in the book "Out of This World".
  3. I really like the acoustic version but it bothers me that it would have been so much better if they included the string arrangement that they had already written for the studio version. Like...why wouldn't you combine piano with strings when you have the option?? They add so much to the song.
  4. It’s not the GoT soundtrack. It’s a compilation album with sons that were inspired by the show. and The International wasn’t really a solo effort, even if Matt seems to have done most of the work. In that case we could probably consider some of Muses songs solo efforts by Matt as well.
  5. I'm sure you know this but Matt did start working on a soundtrack for Clash of The Titans but backed out after deciding to focus on the 2010 tour instead.
  6. Wonder how actual tv-show watchers are gonna react to what is basically the piano theme of The Leftovers
  7. For some reason the board didn't tell me I had a notification??


    Thank you for the birthday wishes :kiss:

  8. I was of course interested to see who this person was. Didn't take me more than a few seconds to find this http://board.muse.mu/showpost.php?p=57919&postcount=65 http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?p=65975#post65975 http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?p=59344#post59344 http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?p=34482#post34482
  9. You haven't been silenced. You've been told multiple times where to direct your complaints and yet you voice them here as if you're standing in public with a megaphone screaming about being silenced. A mod even asked you to send him examples of the injustice and unfit behavior by Niall, yet you keep telling us to just go and find it ourselves. You're the one with the accusations, the burden of proof is on you.

  11. I thought that was clear from his very first post: Basically this person saw Niall say that management had asked him for help, so he went into Niall's post history, fueled by rage.
  12. These people aren't paid. If the "privilege" of administrating and moderating a site full of shitheads also required them to never share their own thoughts and never be wrong, this board would have been dead over a decade ago.
  13. I agree tbh. They should have asked me. My post history is clean.
  14. It's not really a new take though. Muse tried to do dubstep a few years after it got big, and this time they wanted to do the synthwave thing a few years after it got big. It's been the main complaint from many of us for a while now.

    Best Album

    Recent days don't compare to OoS or Abso though (overall). It's interesting how Blockades is seen as fanservice but The Dark Side isn't, even though The Dark Side was basically compared to every single Muse song that people loved. Even Matt admitted that it was pretty much created out of earlier Muse songs.
