What songs doesn't Matt use his falsetto in?

Recommended Posts

When I first got into Muse, I noticed that at at least one point in every song Matt went up into his falsetto, which I just found amazing since most singers don't rely so much on that part of their voice. However, in my recent discovery of how great Dead Star is, I started to think about Matt's vocals and couldn't recall ever hearing him use falsetto in the song, which seemed pretty rare for him, especially on such an early track. I could be wrong about that of course, but that's memory for you. So now I'm wondering, what other Muse songs (sung by Matt of course) go by without Matt reaching up for his falsetto?

Wow, funny how I never noticed that in all those songs before. Does Matt not do the "so come on"s in Uprising?

I don't know tbh, I just included them as backing vocals so didn't count them. I realise the way I worded that bracket could be a bit confusing though.

I Think it's more likely that we just get sets with songs that don't use a lot of range, chest and falsetto alike. And then with songs like KoC he'll just drop the falsetto altogether.

I don't think he uses falsetto in Endlessly.

 

In "hopelessly" I thought he did. He ive not listened in ages

I think it's just soft chest voice.Not that it matters. Even if he loses his range he won't lose his falsetto completely, so that won't be an issue.

Shit is gonna come down on me but Muse can retire when Matt can't do proper falsettos anymore. I don't know absolutely anything about vocals but in 10 years he is gonna die if he attempts to sing KOC,Bliss outro etc and i prefer not to watch them tuning instruments down because it's all gonna be downhill from there :LOL:

 

I know they already started tuning instruments down for some old songs but it stills sound great.

This makes sense in a way I don't understand.

What you don't understand? They started tuning instruments down i think for a couple of songs and it still sounds fine but at some point it won't, or does Black Sabbath sound good to you?

 

Matt used to sing everything pretty much effortlessly right up until T2L, now he has a hard time with some songs, even SS sounds weird (like i said i dont know anything about vocals).

They could always begin to try making proper instrumental albums. I'd also really love that.

Why are you so pessimistic about Matt?;)

 

1. Calling some bad voice changes after, say, 35, natural , inevitable and not worthy to upset is the same thing as calling wrinkles and obesity after, say, 40, even more natural and inevitable. Anyone who takes care of himself will neither get fat nor lose the vocal range completely. Aren't there any examples of people older than Matt who still sing as good/ high as in their early days? There are. Is Matt worse?

 

2. Matt sings decently if he wants to. He hit his highest note this year. Why he doesn't want to sing as good as he can sometimes, is another question.

 

3. Can we help Matt anyhow? Can we change the current situation? None of us will go and sing the last part of DI/Madness instead of Matt, no matter how much we write about it here. Should we still discuss it if we can't do anything about it?

 

Well, in fact, we can help. We can go to church and pray...what if it works?

Because he IS getting a bit older, but mostly probably because he's lazy about getting in shape (which is also more work when you're older)?

Seems pretty damn likely since at the same time frames he's struggling with notes, he's also missing the beginnings of lines, and noticeably struggling for breath.

I'm sure he can still hit the notes, i'm talking about when he can't.
Nowadays you have a valid point, but the T2L tour was hands down the best Matt has ever sounded.
