Is it me or is the recording of megalomania pretty poor? No atmosphere, no dynamics... i prefer:

 

That's what proshots are like in general, hence why Liam's Reading DVD edits were far more enjoyable than the BBC ones. Had much better variety of angles and sound which kept a lot of audience perspective - hence it captured the atmosphere a lot better than the BBC did.

 

I find that a lot of the time, HQ amateur video's do live shows a lot more justice than proshots. That said, I still bloody love this one.

It feels like the organ is a bit quieter than it should be based on the other fan recordings. I just love that you can hear more Chris and Morgan.

I imagine the organ doesn't sound as good because they weren't originally planning on releasing the performance, so when they mic'd up the organ (which I presume they did) they did it relatively close mic'ing, just so they could run it through the PA, but rely mostly on the actual sound from the organ for the show (I'm probably phrasing this really badly, I'm tired kay?). So basically on the recording they have of it, the organ won't sound so huge because they didn't have any ambient mics to capture the atmosphere of it?

As confusing as it was to describe, I was thinking the same thing. Or maybe it's just hard to mic a real organ or something

I think it's better like that, you can hear the other instruments better (Morgan's ukelele :awesome: ) so the organ isn't as overpowering as it might have been.

Please forgive my ignorance, but where is this download available?

 

Main Page>Members>Video Downloads>Scroll down to Royal Albert Hall and it's the third one.

 

I'm sure there's an easier link but I can't find it.

Thanks! I thought the links were updated according to the date of posting, and the last one was from 2009. Now I see it.

I liked the present! I was watching it intently when my dad walked in and started talking to me. I rudely waved him away and said, "There are some things you don't interrupt!"

Thanks Muse! (and sorry, Dad)

I have to agree with some people that the sound quality isn't the best. It's like what they did with HAARP - drowned out the crowd so it almost sounds like a live lounge session or something; it reduces the atmosphere when you can't hear anything except the band playing, imo. But it's still a stellar performance from one of the best Muse shows I've been to, so I'm still happy :happy:. In fact, I might go and watch the whole DVD now :D! I swear at one point during Starlight I could see myself in the crowd, so gonna look out for that again :LOL:.

Seems like we aren't getting any more christmas presents from Muse this year. I liked Megalomania but it's impossible to really get the organ if you aren't there yourself.
