Middle Favorite song from each album?

Recommended Posts

Hullaballoo is what Muse need to do for all their future releases "uh... here's just a compilation of some weird songs we had laying around... yeah..."

 

No expectations for coherency, quality, etc. :chuckle:

 

And yeah, once you start ranking Hulla, DS/IYW and all that, it gets a bit complicated.

Shrinking Universe, definitely top ten, still.

 

I actually think Hullabaloo's pretty coherent because of it's oddness. There's a weirdly consistent feel/vibe about it, even though the songs were recorded/written years apart. Definitely feels like their most experimental album imo.

 

Also, I'd say it's fair to rank Hulla considering it's album-length, as opposed to EPs and whatnot.

 

I've still got a huge soft spot for Recess too, mad little song.

 

Recess, Forced In, HCM, Nature_1, The Gallery are all great imo. MOYH, Ashamed and Yes Please are pretty good too.

Well let's all say goodbye to the "Just How Bored Are We" thread...

It's a sad day

 

Gee it took 'em long enough. I was actually beginning to think I'd gotten away with creating a totally pointless thread that doesn't even belong in this forum. No one even complained, it was hilarious! On the bright side, I'm hoping that thread perhaps inspired some un-boredom throughout the forum through the realization of just how bored we had become.

I don't think we talk much about Exo-Politics. What's the general opinion on it?

Don't mean to be a dick but there's already multiple threads for talking about underrated/under-discussed (if there's even such a thing) songs:

I don't see why we need to use this thread to discuss them other than just to give it a reason to be used.

Tbh I think it's a pretty hated song. The version on BH&R is generally considered inferior to the early live versions (the lyrics definitely are) and that it's overall pretty boring

Personally I think it's a highlight

Then it's just another listing thread. :)

A list I haven't done yet :awesome:

 

Showbiz: Unintended

Origin Of Symmetry: Plug In Baby

Absolution: Falling Away With You/ Endlessly

Black Holes & Revelations: Knights Of Cydonia

The Resistance: Uprising

The 2nd Law: Survival

Drones: Psycho

 

(Not including interludes etc.)

 

EDIT: On a side note, if it wasn't for the choir nonsense, underneath Survival is a pretty awesome hard rock song and would probably be higher up on my list.
