  1. Cryosleep by Matt Bellamy debuts at #46 on the latest Official UK Album Downloads chart compiled by the Official Charts Company. The limited edition [4000 pressed worldwide] picture disc LP+ was held up by French customs so no physical copies were apparently available at retail for Record Store Day this past week in the UK or continental Europe. Not affected markets include the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. MUSE Top Venues Ranked by Total Career Estimated Grosses and Attendance: 1.

  3. Origin of Symmetry is the top selling vinyl album in Spain this past week according to Promusicae and also places at #14 on the Top 100 albums chart in that market. ¡Felicitaciones! It also debuts at #11 on the albums chart in neighboring Portugal.
  4. Origin of Symmetry debuts on two Billboard album charts in the United States: #3 Vinyl Albums #15 Top Album Sales [New Peak] I am estimating it sold about 3K copies this past week presumably most of them the XX Anniversary RemiXX edition on vinyl. The original Origin of Symmetry debuted belatedly at #161 in January 2010 for one week on the Billboard 200 album chart which at that time was sales-based only. It likely sold about 3K copies that week as well.

  7. Classical and rock elements in the band's magnum opus 2nd studio album released 20 years ago this month in 2001: Besides providing vocals, guitar, piano and keyboards on the album, Matt plays harpsichord and pipe organ on tracks 'Micro Cuts' featuring his falsetto vocal range peaking at G5 and 'Megalomana' respectively and was inspired by Bach's Toccata and Fugue BWV 565 on 'Plugged in Baby' and by Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 on 'Space Dementia' and 'Megalomania.' Händel, Bach and Mozart were skillful performers on both the harpsichord and organ in the baroque classical era. 'Hyper Music' has similarities to 'Snakecharmer' by RATM and the beginning of 'Futurism' resembles 'Too Many Puppies' by Primus. On Matt's solo release Cryosleep, several tracks notably 'Take A Bow' for piano four hands, 'Pray' and the two acoustic versions of 'Unintended' were possibly influenced by Mozart and Schubert keyboard four hand duet compositions and Bach compositions BWV 846 and BWV 999.
  8. Official UK Albums Chart Update (9 July-11 July): Origin of Symmetry is at #3 on the midweek tally and is on track to reach its highest chart position on the Top 100 albums survey since its original debut release in June 2001. From The Official Charts Company website posted on Monday: "Take a deep breath Inhaler fans – the Irish rock band are on course for Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart with their debut album It Won’t Always Be Like This. The Dublin quartet lead today’s Official Chart Update by over 7,000 chart sales having racked up the most physical and download sales this past weekend. Should Inhaler hold onto the top spot by Friday’s final chart, they’ll become the third Irish group to top the albums chart in the last decade, following The Script and Westlife. Last week’s Number 1 SOUR by Olivia Rodrigo is the most streamed album of the week so far placing at 2, while Muse album Origin of Symmetry is on track for a return to the Top 5 at 3 following its XX Anniversary RemiXX edition release. The revamped offering was released digitally last month, with its vinyl rollout occurring last Friday (9 July)."

  12. Origin of Symmetry entered the official album downloads charts in the following markets in the first week after the remixed and remastered version was released on 18 June 2021: #2 United Kingdom #7 Germany #9 Australia The 20th anniversary of this album also re-entered the Top Albums charts in the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Belgium despite not being available on physical formats. It may not have been eligible to chart in France because the original album was released more than two years ago and did not contain new tracks. It could have charted on the non-published 'back catalogue' SNEP chart instead. It also charted in around 60 global markets on the Apple Music streaming album charts and likely sold several thousand downloads worldwide at digital retailers Apple iTunes and Amazon Music. Undisclosed Desires becomes the fourth MUSE song to surpass 100 million streams each on both Spotify and YouTube after Uprising, Starlight and Madness. Reach Out (I'll Be There) by the Four Tops covered by The Jaded Hearts Club with Matt on bass recently passed the 1 million streams mark on Spotify and is by far the most viewed JHC video on YouTube with over 300k streams.
