  1. I'm late but I did finally get mine over a month after release (despite pre-ordering within an hour of announcement). Even though I had heard most of the Newton Abbot stuff before, I never paid much attention to it because the quality was so bad. But I really enjoyed them on the CD that came with the box set! The songs are still rough around the edges, but the energy is classic Muse. I also wasn't expecting to love the actual book part of the set as much as I did. It was nice to see the band have such positive things to say about their early material, particularly with how much they have tried to distance themselves from their first couple of albums. Overall I'm super pleased with the OoM, I just wish it hadn't taken so long to be shipped to me.
  2. Mine still hasn't shipped. Remind me never to order from the Muse shop ever again.
  3. I ordered from the official shop like maybe an hour after it was announced, and it hasn't even shipped yet 😭 I'm mainly curious about the remasters.
  4. That performance of TV is fucking perfect. I really hope they bring this song over to the US at some point and that I get to see it.
  5. Edit: Nevermind I misread. I like that alternate setlist a lot better, though I would find a way to keep TaB somehow.
  6. I could've sworn Matt implied on instagram or somewhere that they'd play The Void live. Maybe I'm imagining that, but even if I'm not, we know how unreliable Matt can be.
  7. Yeah but now they have a giant robot for Stockholm. Though it'd be better if they played all of SS and then did the rest of the medley as the typical post-song riffage.
  8. Now that I think about it, MotP would fit in really well with the new material. I think the only reason they keep Mercy around is because it has the perfect moment for the confetti cannon, which the crowd usually seems to go crazy over.
  9. I will say that if those rumored rotations are legit, I'm insanely glad I got the setlist that I did instead of the alternative.
  10. I get that, but what can we do at this point? They consistently deflect any criticism of US setlists by claiming that they're just playing what most Americans want to hear. Honestly though I'd be more ok with a greatest hits setlist if they would actually change the order of the songs between tours, just do something to make the tired songs feel fresh. That being said, I've yet to see a bad Muse gig out of the 9 I've been to (probably because I skipped the Drones tour ). But I think your enjoyment of this tour might depend most on how much you liked ST.
  11. Is that the first time they've mentioned that Thought Contagion was originally a piano song? Now I really wish we got to hear that version on the deluxe album.
  12. The title "Pray" instantly made me think of Handmaid's Tale, though I believe that doesn't premiere until June. Would love if it's for The Twilight Zone though, since that's one of my favorite shows of all time. Either way, the song sounds pretty fantastic imo.
  13. Yeah I've pretty much given up hope of Muse giving us comparable setlists to everywhere else in the world. So going in without expecting setlist surprises helped me just enjoy it for the spectacle that it was.
  14. Just got back from the Phoenix show. I had been on a Muse internet blackout to avoid spoilers. Some thoughts: Easily my favorite live production from them, every single song had something visually stunning to look at. Setlist was ok, I would've liked for them to bring back something they hadn't played in years but the length was a real pleasant surprise. I knew there was gonna be a giant robot but I didn't realize just how massive that thing is. I was worried it malfunctioned or something because it was getting near the end of the show and it hadn't made an appearance, and when it finally did during SS, my jaw dropped. I've seen Take a Bow twice now and it's been a highlight both times, that song is so powerful live. And finally all the ST songs were great live! Just missing The Void for me. 9.5/10 would go again.
  15. I skipped the Drones tour because I wasn't impressed with the setlists *or* the stage setup, but this one I'm ridiculously excited for. I've loved all the teasers so far.
  16. Damn, what a setlist for that show too. http://musewiki.org/Nashville_Mercy_Lounge_2004_(gig) I wish I had known about Muse/cared about live music in general back then.
  17. Glad we're back! Had to re-upload a profile pic, fix my signature, etc. Not a fan of merging the two accounts because I lost my username of just "Tesseract" but I get why they'd want to merge them. Overall I miss some aspects of the old design (like all the possible info below people's names next to their posts), but hopefully this one will be looking nice before long.
  18. Gonna miss it, but I'm just hoping the new one is just as good and not the disaster that Muselive turned into.
  19. I'm just shocked they're actually coming to Phoenix, since a bunch of artists I like always skip here for some reason.
  20. I think his point is this album seems to have been more well-received by the fans than the previous two.
  21. That's really cool, now I'm even more excited for this.
  22. Nothing to be ashamed of using music to help you get through rough times. That's the best part about music in my opinion. Break it to Me has grown SO much on me so quickly, it's truly great.
  23. That makes me happy! I think I've said it on here before but I think there are definitely some aspects of OoS that could use some tweaking, though I'm not sure how possible it is on a remaster. Mainly I'd like the guitar solo and piano in CE to be more prominent in the mix. Bliss could maybe use a tad more "oomph" as well.
  24. Ticketmaster is such garbage. I had to try at least 5 fucking times because it kept kicking me out and THEN it made me randomly reset my password in the middle of it so I had to wait for the email and go through all that shit. Finally got row 6 seats, but ugh it was stressful. And one of the times it fucked up I had front row seats.
