  1. Hi! It's me again. I was going to post this as a reply to my initial Art History Project thread, but I decided that creating a new thread entirely would allow me to make this topic more specific and less jumbled. In essence, for those that do not know about my project, here are the requirements: Give a formal analysis, contextual analysis, and full description of a particular work of art How does the artist define art? Who is the audience? Can you connect it to past art? Is there a precedent in the artworld for this piece? Why did you select this artist as your topic; your personal feelings about the art The paper should be accompanied by a slide presentation you will give to the class. The paper should be accompanied by a slide presentation you will give to the class. My art history teacher said that I should choose one album in order to make the paper more specific and in-depth. Because I had trouble deciding which album would be the most contextually-dense, I polled my twitter followers (the options I gave were OoS, Absolution, The Resistance, and Drones), with The Resistance receiving the most votes. So, In conclusion of this droning thread, what are your thoughts on TR? Is there anything that you can lend me that could satisfy any of the above requirements? I really appreciate any help you could offer. Thank you!
  2. Throughout my many listens to The Resistance and Neutron Star Collision i have come to the conclusion that the only reason i can't appreciate their latest music (still love it) as much as their older music is that i keep comparing them. If The Resistance or NSC was the only stuff from Muse i had ever heard i just know i would never have any doubts about it and fall in love immediately. But since i know older Muse, when i listen to new stuff i always have a moment when i think how much better it would be if it had Matt's range or the dark atmosphere from Absolution for example. I can't help it I'm beginning to wonder if Muse will ever produce such passionate music again. I mean as amazing as their latest album was, their old style was so original, deep, powerful and perfect. Why are they moving away from that? When they perform live songs like PIB and SS they just dominate and they rock with such passion. Surely they wan't to go back to their roots? Please Muse, one more rock album and i'll be satisfied. Anyway is there anyone else who feels the same way?
  3. Hello everyone! This interview is very interesting, and I am translating it in French (with subtitles). I just need to know one simple thing: Could you write exactly the first sentence you hear? The interviewer is German so it is not really easy to understand... Does he say "Everything turns to gold for you?" Sorry if I am wrong, I just hope you could help me for this. Thank you very much!
  4. Anyone else able to hear the 'Whispering Man' in "Undisclosed Desires"???.... Was listening to "The Resistance" through my Thomson mp3 player (so that may have been the prob entirely, lol!), and in track 3, "Undisclosed Desires", when you get to the verse that begins, "You trick your lovers that you're wicked and divine.....", you can distinctly hear in the earphones, a male voice loudly whispering the words the same time Matt is singing them!! It's kinda creepy/disturbing, because suddenly this person whispering the lyrics jumps out of the music and sounds like he's standing right next to you!? .....Is it my ears playing tricks? Can I somehow tweak the track to remove the vocal layer with the "Whispering Man" lol? Is it deliberate part of the music? Am I being "difficult"?
  5. ??? (Sorry if this is too random or someone else has already done it or something. I'm new and only just getting used to this)
  6. hey, I posted picture from my nails that my sister made for me. and if you have any Muse related nail pictures/ideas, please tell me. so, here they are. (sorry for the link, I don't quite know how to add pics to forums from desktop) http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_lc3003iRU91qf04oro1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=0RYTHV9YYQ4W5Q3HQMG2&Expires=1290171476&Signature=Dj9mhMf0iaid3TXa9r%2Bjo86Q48M%3D EDIT: oh, forgot. HANDMADE
  7. I'm really interested in hearing other Muse fans' input here. I should start by saying I'm a big fan of Origin of Symmetry with Absolution at a close second, so Muse's epic songs and hard-rock jams are all very close to my heart. While of course it's too early to thoroughly judge the album, the previews iTunes now has to offer have given me grave concern that the band is headed in a direction completely opposite that of the OoS and Absolution days. When "United States of Eurasia" was released, I was satisfied with the song's grandeur and thundering harmonic minor runs. "Uprising," however, raised a flag. The originality and authentic Muse-ness felt absent, replaced by a baseline that was a cross between Marilyn Manson's "Beautiful People" and Battles' "Atlas." The synth melody felt like a weaker version of Billy Idol's "White Wedding," and the minimal guitar felt thrown in, a mere appeal to the rock and roll spirit that attracted fans like me in the first place. To be quite frank, the song felt empty, and entirely absent the heart and soul that the band seems to put into every song they release. "But that single is just a glimpse at the album," I told myself, "it's probably going to function like Starlight did in BHAR, as a device to draw in a wider consumer base." That was the rationalization I put into place, though I had a knawing at the back of my head at even a comparison to the album that I felt was a step in the wrong direction. Regardless, I held out hope, knowing (praying) that Muse would deliver. Then the iTunes samples came online. I don't believe I'm the first to say it, but I want to start a discourse on it among Muse fans: The Resistance isn't that good. From the 30 second samples, I drew a small list of grievances, after of course I had wiped the tears from my face: Where did the distortion from Chris's bass go? Why all the keyboard synth? What was wrong with piano? Where did the classical influences disappear to? Where is the fuzz factory, the rocking Manson sound? Where is the GUITAR for that matter? What is with this disco vibe? What is with this electronica vibe? Why has the political dissent encouragement in the lyrics been turned up to 11? And finally, WHERE IS THE MUSE I HAVE GROWN TO LOVE? Not here, I say. Not here. I will buy the Exogenesis Symphony, and that is probably all. Please let me know what you think.
  8. I pre ordered the resistance as i thought i would get it as early as possible as i was really looking forward to getting it as a huge muse fan!
