Clearly. I mean, that bit at the very beginning, where you can hear footsteps, is clearly the best bit :yesey:


Yes, yes it is :stunned: I love the beginning, its so epic and dream like, and makes you feel really warm and fuzzy inside :happy:

the part in escape that goes:

I'll take back all the things that I said

I didn't relise I was talking to the living dead

But I don't want you to think that I care

I never would

I never could again


i assume it's not permanent though,just around these days

My fave bit..........ooh the guitar solo in Hysteria - tis the reason its my fave Muse song, its the sex :D And also............


*the opening bass riff in Hysteria

*the piano solo in b&h - yeah boring I know cos everyone else has chosen it but its just awesome :eek:

* Showbiz - for the the falsetto "G" Matt hits at the end

* KOC riff

* the middle bit in Blackout where you just hear the strings, has had the ability to make me cry on many occasions :'(

*the extra section added to Assassin i.e. the Grand Omega Bosses Edit - changes the song completely!

* Piano solo in Ruled by Secrecy

*The opening of Supermassive Black Hole - that diiiiirty guitar riff :p

*The end of Apocalypse Please - er I seem to like piano solos a lot don't I :LOL:

*New born - the angelic opening and when THAT guitar riff kicks in

*Darkshines - thumping piano chords at the end of the first verse before the chorus

*Megalomania - the organ at the end, very haunting/eerie. Also when Matt hits G# Aflat (whatever?), sounds like Chip & Dale its sooo high :LOL:



There are probably loads more but I can't think of them all right now.....

I know most folk on here must have a particular line, chorus, verse, bar, bridge, solo etc. that they love and listen to over and over again. I want to know.


Mine is at the end of Citizen Erased when it goes from F major to F minor.....mmmmm :happy:

The end of the long version of bliss, do they only do the long version live?

Wow, I love far too many little things to mention them all, but I will list some of them, in no specific order. Unsurprisingly, mine are very like others’ choices. (Obviously almost Muse’s entire catalogue of music is wonderful in full, but you did ask for specific favorite parts to songs):


- The arpeggios to Bliss.


- The first twenty-seven seconds to New Born.


- For Plug in Baby: at 00:32 “I’ve exposed your lies…baby…the underneath’s no big surprise” and then at 1:31-32 the “oooooh”; and then at 2:42-3:06, after “tired of living”, the similar “oooo”, on to “and I’ve seen your loving…Mine is gone…And I’ve been in trouble…wooaahhhh”

..Man I love that. :D


- The guitar slide at 3:48 on Citizen Erased is wicked.


- The chorus, and piano sections to Sunburn – I love the level of ardency in that song; it is so exhilirating.


- The synth from Endlessly at 2:39-3:30. It’s incredibly compelling, and reminds me of something that is difficult to describe…something that would sound strange and silly if talked about.


- The entire song is masterful, but I especially love the enveloping guitar to Stockholm Syndrome at 1:23-1:29. Also the fluctuation in background vocals on the lines “let your anger rise”/”Let your hatred grow”. But it’s difficult to pick out any one section, I might as well say I favor the entire song…


- The strings to Blackout – they’re consolatory.


- “Interlude” from Absolution.


- Of course the bass to New Born, Muscle Museum, Hysteria and mostly every other Muse song…


- The Chorus to The Small Print – I love the guitar, and especially the vocals at “Saaaaaay, it’ll make you insane…” and the general mood the song carries.


- The dynamics, strings, and drums to City of Delusion.


- The descending guitar and piano notes at 1:33 on “Why….” of Hoodoo. (I think they are guitar and piano notes, it could be bass and piano, or something else…correct me if I am wrong.) Just a little nuance; it appears to be very common in many styles of music, but I’ve always enjoyed it.


That is all I can think of at the moment, but it is definitely enough to portray the idea…
