  1. Mark Beaumont nominating himself I see...
  2. Well Matt's basic response to a fan requesting something is to inform that fans don't really want it...
  3. I'm talking more about Music rather than physical media. 95% of fans aren't collectors so packaging the vinyls with the CDs have made them unaffordable for some. Take account that hours after I made my post, Radiohead launched their public library sharing quite alot of music, videos, artwork for free which puts the creativity up front rather than the physical media with a scare supply. Nothing stops Muse from doing something similar.
  4. While I'm happy some new material has come out, I'm sort of disappointed by the lack of era specific live material. For those old enough to remember, Muse made their reputation as a live band before gaining critical or commercial success. 2000-2002 was the peak of their live performances, Matt ad-libbed like hell and was too young to worry about his voice, and it's not reflected in this compilation bar from three or four Astoria 2000 songs. Granted, a lot of this stuff is available on youtube but it would have been nice to have a properly mastered CD containing highlights from Eurocockenees de Belfort 2000, Bizarre 2000 and La Route Du Rock 2001, or even a DVD considering how expensive the boxset is. And no Plus in Baby acoustic? Come on!
  5. Can someone comment in the OoS instrumental demos? Anything interesting in there?
  6. I type this as my cat is sitting on my chest so please forgive any typos. HAT, I meant the rest of OoS was recorded during late 2000 and early 2001, nothing less, nothing more. That time period. The recordings of Bliss and Plug in Baby are quite different to the live versions that preceded them, hence they were re-arranged in studio. Listen to PiB in the video I linked from late 2000, or even read the comments for that matter, it sounds like the album version, not what they had been playing for most of 2000 prior to the Bottril sessions. Yes, the band tried to capture their live sound for the OoS sessions but that's a different issue to how the songs are composed. I don't think we're disagreeing here but you're mis-interpreting a lot of things I've written. edit: I'm currently just four miles from real world studios!
  7. Oh stupid me, I bloody forgot, Futurism was produced by Bottrill, so that must be what "The Other" is above.
  8. Okay here's the timeline (which is quite clear on the musewiki page for origin): October 2000, Muse go into the sudio with Bottrill. PiB, NB, DS, Bliss and possibly some other song, are recorded while the band were high on Mushrooms. Some songs like PiB and Bliss are re-arranged from the versions the band had being played live. Late October 2000, Muse go back on tour with PiB played with the OoS album arrangement rather than the showbiz tour arrangement. Refer to: Late 2000-Early 2001, Muse return to the studio with John Cornfield and remix (not re-record) the songs from the David Botttrill sessions owing too many overdubs and poor mixing. The rest of the album is recorded and mixed during this time. I honestly don't see where there is definitive proof of OoS demo's being left on the cutting room floor though I think it's a great shame there is no disc with the 2000 era live performances of OoS material but alas youtube has plenty of that material anyway.
  9. They are the recordings on OoS but different mixes with a couple of overdubs. The late 2000 live versions are based on these. You can find the club Quattro Gig on YouTube and listen for yourself. The other MM is the 2nd single release which should be available somewhere on YouTube. There's also another take on one of the showbiz b-sides. For Bliss PiB and Newborn demos, there are numerous good quality live versions widely available. It's a shame the live versions aren't on the box set, I'd much prefered remastered versions of those as opposed to reading 2011.
  10. I don't think these are Demo's. OoS was being recorded during this period. I assume these are from the David Bothril session who's credited with producing NewBorn, Bliss, Plug In Baby and Darkshines. I woonder if one of the PiB mixes is of 2000 -era version of the song. No idea what the other is though.....
  11. Well Christmas is the usual time for these things, gifts and all that. Though knowing Matt I can see it delayed further. They were talking about packaging in last December....
  12. Why's that? ( I'm beginning like origin of Muse is becoming akin to Chinese Democracy....)
  13. wow, that's pretty shit really though the Psycho video from Glasgow is a thing of beauty.....
