  1. I LOVE Bridge Over Troubled Waters¬†ūüė≠

    Take a Bow is a lot of fun!

    Pray sounds a lot better than the previous release

    I've always unironically loved Guiding Light so honestly I'm all over this cover¬†ūüĎĆ

    Simulation Theory Theme could easily be the theme for a Mass Effect game (one of my favourite game series) - love the feel

    Fever's alright, not really my kind of thing

    Unintended lullaby is super sweet and precious

    Are they doing anything about Micro Cuts yet?

    I think it's been fixed on Spotify. Sounds like it to me, or maybe I'm overthinking it. Someone on a reddit thread also mentioned it was fixed on Spotify.

  3. First listen now:

    New Born: Not sure how to feel about this one. The snare is too loud. It does sound cleaner, but it makes it feel emptier to me. Also am I crazy or is the bass slightly out of time?

    Bliss: Doesn't sound much different (which they implied already given this was a single), other than Matt's vocals being a bit more at the forefront and it being a bit cleaner. Overall, improved.

    Space Dementia: Interesting new touch to the piano intro, sounds a bit more sci-fi. Halfway through now, and holy CRAP the strings are an incredible addition! This mix really captures the feel of a grand, epic space odyssey. Big improvement here, I love it.

    Hyper Music: Awesome! Angrier, more hardcore, explosive... love the screaming throughout, and now in the climax too - great addition.

    Plug in Baby: Not sounding too different so far (another single), but it was a classic on the original so that's fine.

    Citizen Erased: Already commented on this one, but I love this version. I wasn't as bothered by the drums here as I was in New Born for some reason. I do miss the sirens at the end, especially with the lead in to Micro Cuts, but the new strings bring in a whole new colour. I'm torn between preferring the original - which is my favourite song of all time - and the new version... but I might prefer the remix. Might.

    Micro Cuts: Did the song start a half beat late? Also, whoa, they weren't kidding when they said there was now harpsichord. Not yet sold on the new vocals throughout the song. The mix sounds a bit uneven at the end, and it's a shame they seem to have cut the panning. Honestly I can't help but think of Halloween/haunted houses with the additions. I prefer the original here.

    Screenager: Another one that doesn't sound too different. I love the original and everything I love about it is still here, but cleaner, so overall this is improved for me.

    Darkshines: The bass comes through really nicely here. LOVE the change to the guitar after the hook. Definitely prefer this version over the original.

    Feeling Good: Love the new strings. The extra fuzz on the bass is great. My only complaint would be that Matt's vocals seem to have been turned down right near the climax and lost. It's a shame, because it's a great scream.

    Futurism: Love this. Super clear

    Megalomania: Already commented on this one too, but it's fantastic. The intro is so much cleaner, the strings are simply FANTASTIC, and the organ is so much punchier. However, I think the final chord is less powerful than the original, since it sounds like it's just the organ now. The original had other instruments contributing to this huge wall of sound, plus rolling drums adding a bit of flavour, and those are missing. The rest of the song is definitely better though.

  4. I hope the album is out this year since every album since Absolution has come out every 3 years (2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018)... would be neat. If not, that's okay too, covid has understandably delayed lots of things. I'm just excited there's a new album!

    One day late, but Happy Birthday Matt!¬†ūü•≥

  5. Sounds like you should read "1984" by  George Orwell if you haven't already. It was a primary inspiration for that album, so a lot of connections can be drawn to all the songs (with the exception of the Exogenesis symphony at the end, which is its own thing)

    It's really neat to hear how personally Muse can speak to¬†someone. They're my favourite band for lots of reasons¬†‚ėļÔłŹ

    Is there a confirmed producer? Insta post mentions one but curious if they're working with Costey again. Would love that.

    Is that the one from Dom saying the producer is taking a nap? I think he was joking about his dog

    There isn't a confirmed producer yet, but my guesses are it's another self-produced album, or it's Costey (I hope!). They worked with him on the remix so it could make sense to keep the collaboration going even further.

    If it's nothing more than getting them nostalgic, I'll be a happy camper. The reason Drones didn't work as a back to basics album, for me anyways, was that it had the heavy instrumentation but lacked the soul of the earlier albums. I would be interested to hear a modern sounding, poppy album that was creatively linked to their earlier work, if such a thing is even possible. Or I might be way off base.¬†ūüėė

    100%! I totally agree.

  7. Map of Your Head.

    I've been trying to get my partner into Muse more over the years and assumed he wouldn't like this one, but it's actually now his favourite Muse song? So I've been looking at it in a different way. It's a really light, comfy song; very raw yet gentle, and one of the more different songs compared to the rest of their discocraphy. The lyrics are of course not light and comfy, but thematically it fits in really well with Origin of Symmetry.

    Megalomania sounds great! I alway thought that one missed the depth it deserved. Much better layering now, in both the loud and quiet bits, though the drums in the loud bits suffer from the same issue as the CE remix.  

    Yeah it really does sound great. I always felt like the pipe organ needed so much more space than the original album gave it, and the remix has made it so much more grandiose. The strings too were greatly improved.

  9. I loved the CE remix. It doesn't replace the original, but listening to it felt like I was discovering it all over again. Definitely sounds a lot cleaner, and the guitar reminds me of the live version.

    What I miss the most are the sirens at the end. I do love the strings that come out in the remix, but the ending doesn't feel as powerful.

    The Megalomania remix sounds fantastic. Looking forward to the rest of the album!

  10. Bought general admission tickets for the show this morning. Looking forward to lining up early like last time for barrier! :awesome:

     

    I'm really curious how the stage setup will be now that it's in the centre of the arena.

     

    Hi!

    I'm new! What is the presale code for Vancouver for tomorrow?

     

    You need to have been a member of muse.mu, not of the forums, since before October 13th in order to get a presale code. If that's the case you can find your presale code here. If not you'll have to wait until Friday to buy tickets the general way.

  11. Ordered the deluxe edition yesterday, tried about 5 times before I finally actually got the order confirmation page... I only got the one confirmation email from customer service about the order, but I'm worried that it still charged to my bank account all those times. Also didn't get Psycho in that email.

     

    Hopefully this gets fixed soon and we can get all relevant refunds. I'm sure it'll work out in the end though! :) Just need patience.

  12. Such an awesome concert!! :D

     

    My friends and I made it to front row barrier and it was spectacular. Bonus: Matt Bellamy shook my hand :LOL:

     

    I still can't get over the concert. Absolutely amazing. Thank you Muse :happy:

     

    Also, gocanux I believe we met at the very beginning of the line, at about 9AM? My friend was the number 3 and I was the number 4 you marked XD
