It's a huge difference. Like I said, "Drones mostly has G4s. One Bb4 and like four A4s in total (two songs). T2L had over 10 Bb4s, and almost every single song had A4s."

 

I removed that single comment about the ONLY Bb4 on Drones.

 

Supremacy had G#4, A4, E5s and G5s.

Madness had two Bb4s and an F5.

Panic Station had A4s, an E5 and an F#5.

Survival had a Bb4, Eb5 and G#5s.

Follow Me had loads of G4s, G#4s and Bb4s.

Animals had G#4s or A4s, can't remember which.

Explorers had an A4 and a Bb4.

Big Freeze had loads of G4s (possibly G#4s, can't remember) and a bunch of Bb4s. The most difficult Muse song ever.

Unsustainable had G#4s and A4s.

 

The Bb4s in Survival, Follow Me, Big Freeze and Madness are all really, really impressive for Matt, and without a doubt the best he has ever sounded in that range. Then you have the falsetto G#5 which is the only note in that range since Micro Cuts, and it's arguably better.

 

Now onto Drones.

 

Dead Inside had G4s, G#4s and one Bb4. Really difficult song but the Bb4 is worse than pretty much all of the ones on T2L.

Psycho has G4s and falsetto C5s. Nothing impressive.

Mercy has loads of G4s and again falsetto C5s. Also difficult, possibly the hardest on the album, still nowhere near Big Freeze, Unsustainable or Follow Me.

Reapers has nothing really difficult. Short falsetto D5s,

The Handler has two A4s and 3 D5s. Pretty difficult, but still not even comparable to Madness with those insane Bb4s, not even comparable to the live version with the A4s.

Defector has some nice falsetto work in the background that goes up to like F#5, other than that it's really nothing special. Probably easier than every song on T2L.

Revolt has G4s and a falsetto G5. Probably comparable to Supremacy in terms of difficulty.

Aftermath is really easy apart from like a few seconds towards the end where he hits two A4s. Easier than Explorers.

The Globalist has a bunch of G4s. Really good ones, but still G4s. Probably once again easier than every song on T2L where Matt sings.

Drones is ofc really impressive, hard to judge it really. But range wise nothing special, and the difficulty of the individual vocal tracks isn't that impressive, unless you count sound but then all of this is useless because it's all subjective.

 

In terms of difficulty to sing, I'd rank the songs like this:

 

 

Big Freeze

Follow Me

Unsustainable

Madness/Mercy

Dead Inside

Survival

The Handler

Supremacy/Revolt

Drones

Explorers

Panic Station

Reapers

The Globalist

Psycho/Aftermath/Defector

 

I've been wondering, is the "foreeeeeeeever more" in the globalist a G4 or an A4? i've not tried pitching it yet

Who cares about how hard the Songs are to sing?

 

Everyone who thinks it makes a difference to which songs get sung at what point in a gig, which, seeing as this is the tour discussion thread, makes it a completely valid discussion point.

Full show from Moscow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20aW3P4YYnA

 

His vocals have definitely improved over the last shows. Haven't listened to all but The Handler, Micro Cuts and especially the ending of Plug in Baby sounds great. And dat intro to Micro Cuts :awesome::awesome::awesome:

 

Edit: Also probably the best ending of Dead Inside he has done so far.

 

What the hell was Apocalypse Please :LOL::LOL: cool to hear the bridge played like in the early live versions though.

Apocalypse Please has always been the song of which I really like the instrumental version :D

 

When I saw this song at Pinkpop, I found it very boring, even though I like the song a lot. I hoped that it was just Pinkpop, and that it would be better in this video. But I still don't enjoy it. And that's not because of the missing lead vocals at the beginning. Is that just me, or do others think so as well?

I'd say it's at the very least been in rotation for every tour except in 2009.

 

The amount of people acting like it's a "rarity" baffles me. Just because it was almost completely absent from The Resistance-era doesn't mean it's special. It's a great song, I just don't understand how people can act like it's some rarity.

Suppose it all depends on perspective. I didn't attend my first Muse gig until 2010, and I got Dead Star once and CE twice before I ever got Bliss at a gig (and I had to go to England to do so! Though I have since gotten Bliss one more time in NYC last month). I think a lot of it depends on geographic location and luck of the draw :LOL:

 

In big-picture terms, it's not a rarity, but it's still 'rare' enough to qualify as a personal rarity for some people (myself included!)

Even when it was a bonafide regular I managed to go to the only 2 UK BHaR shows where it was dropped (Nottingham and Wembley Stadium 1)

I've been to 9 Muse gigs, and haven't had AP live ... yet somehow I've had Dead Star 4 times :rolleyes:

I don't really see Bliss as a rarity either, I've had it 6/8 times I've seen them. I've even seen New Born less.

 

I've had Bliss at 4/7 - same as Map of the Problematique, New Born, Hysteria and Stockholm Syndrome. Always love having it at gigs though.

 

See, and I've only had it at 2/11 :LOL: (and I didn't get it at all until my 7th gig, which was not even in my country haha). I still think location plays a big factor... I noticed both of you guys live in the UK, whereas I'm in the US. I would classify it as a rarity here... Since 2007, it's been played here about as often as CE.

 

Not meaning to get into a debate or something, just pointing out that what may be a fairly regular setlist staple in some countries may be a rarity in others.

yeah it does seem to be a location thing tbh with Bliss. I think rotating it with PiB and rotating Hysteria/TIRO would be quite a good idea personally. Just a random opinion

 

yeah I second this - TiRO and Hysteria have both lost a bit of punch live so rotating them together at least in arenas would be great and bliss/PiB would just give more people a chance to hear bliss which is always nice and it would open a slot for something like Map of the Problematique or Citizen Erased to be played a little more

I guess it's that too. Bliss has been played four times in California in the past two years alone, accounting for the six times its been played in the United States over the last two years.

 

I guess it really is a rarity, just doesn't seem like it. To be fair, East Coast got a lot of those types of songs that never show up over here either. Wonder what's going on with that, because ti really should just be rotated.
