Who else has frankensteined their Muse albums?

In a sense, I like the albums as they come, but I download unreleased and fan made songs and my Muse collection has turned into a mess.

 

The Resistance is the most frankensteined album. It now has 16 tracks; We Are The Universe opening (goes so well into Uprising), an extended Uprising (frankensteined track in itself; the studio recording of the end live riff stuck on to the end of it replacing the dull bit after the last chorus), Helsinki Jam before Undisclosed Desires, the 5.1 Extended version of Unnatural Selection (only a rip from a youtube vid, so rubbish quality, 128kbps, to be deleted soon), and Soaked (yes I know it was bhar era, works better on this album though) between IBTY and Exo.

 

The Helsinki Jam is to be replaced by a Wankdorf Jam if a fan made 'studio' version is made. There were a few with WatU and Helsinki, so it's only a matter of time. This will be more difficult, but I'm going to hunt for a fan-made 'studio' version of the current Protestor's March intro. I may end up being a non Muse track, but I want that sort of sound intro. Sets the mood for the album well.

 

In Black Holes and Revelations, I have switched the positions of Knights Of Cydonia and Take A Bow (the latter works so much better as a closer, though I'm trying to find a way of getting the live DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH at the end on the album version). I have stuck Glorious after MoTP (sort of a middle between Map and Soldiers Poem in terms of mood).

 

Absolution is left alone apart from Fury after ToaDA and before RBS

 

Origin is completely untouched, though I may stick a Bliss extended in there, or Futurism (though I like that in its own little Dead Star/IYW EP).

 

Showbiz has Spiral Static at the end, though I'm searching for a better place to put it.

 

 

If anyone can point me in the direction of anything I am searching for, I will be very grateful.

 

Who else has done this to their Muse collection, and with what songs?

I love doing this :LOL:

 

Although I deleted Muse off iTunes in rage so I can't say where the songs go :LOL:

 

 

I know I threw the Groove in Absolution in place of Endlessly

The Clean version of Grand Omega Bosses of Assassin for Assassin

 

WATU before Extended Uprising

 

uhm

Showbiz before Sunburn on showbiz

:awesome:

I'm going to do the same with Resistance, i think. I'm looking for the intro song from the latest gigs (you know, when everyone has a flag) but i don't know the name/band (anyone?).

They play House of the Rising Sun live often, though thats usually related to TiRO, so I'm not sure. OH WAIT you mean the ambient intro? Don't know that, someone needs to tell me what it is.

 

I've deleted Feeling Good from my copy of OoS.

 

+8743793847900438591832 Though I would never do this, I always keep the original tracks

I wouldn't replace it, but I might add The Groove to Abso (I have it on my iPod in the TiRO single now)

 

I'm going to get the GOB edit soon. What do you mean by 'clean'?

Only compliling all my muse B-Sides into one big album.

 

I don't think I'd ever be happy with an order so I just order them alphabetically, it's a pain in the ass to change the track numbers when a new one has to go in.

 

Thats the only thing I have done as well. All the B-sides are put into one album but I put the right artwork with each.

I am not very adventurous, so I just added Fury to the end of Absolution and Glorious to the end of BH&R as per the Japanese releases.

 

 

 

Very wise :chuckle: I just skip it usually.

 

So I'm not the only one who doesn't grock Feeling Good. Good. Matt seems to really love it...

 

I've made my own "Best of Muse" Cd's--I have about 4 different ones, depending on my mood...ALWAYS open with TiRO though. Love it. KoC is a great closer too.

You are many many kind.

 

Though I must say, tut tut. It's 192kbps. It doesn't match the rest of Black Holes and Revelations at 256kbps. I am disappointed in you.

 

I'm disappointed for only having BHAR in 256 kbps...

 

Nice AC5 reference though.

I Hate doing this :LOL:. I dunno why, I just feel wrong if I mess with the order of an album or even live bootleg - like I'm taking away from its significance by changing the order around. :chuckle: But that's just me. I like each album the way it is anyhow; I come to appreciate the added riffs etc. when I play live bootlegs of gigs, rather than hear them every time I listen to the studio version.

 

If I was to change anything, I'd put Assassin GOB in place of normal Assassin on BH&R. But the download-only/digital version was like that on iTunes anyways, so I wouldn't feel like I'd done something drastic, hehe.

Did I just reference AC5? What, the epic PS2 game? I LOVE that game. Which bit did I reference?

 

And also, do you mean to say you have it on your ipod as a higher bitrate? How do you do that?

Grabacr... Brings back memories...

 

Anyways, I rip all my music in 320 kbps. You can change it under settings.

Nah, I don't mess with the existing albums. All I've done is put Dead Star and In Your World on Hullaballoo as a mystery 1st CD, making the studio tracks CD2 and live recording CD3. And I tagged on NSC at the end of The Resistance. If I want to listen to them with the good versions - GOB, Exopolitics remix, etc, I'll just make a playlist. I just stick all the extra stuff into very original and unpredictable albums like "Muse B-sides" and "Muse Live".

 

Thanks for the edit by the way Anxyous, never heard it like this before. though to be honest I guess I prefer it "dirty".

I had a clean version of the GOBE of Assassin but I deleted it accidentally and can't find it anymore :(

 

Sorry for the possibly stupid question, but it would be kind if somebody could tell me what the "GOBE" version of Assassin is? :)

 

I leave albums as they are, I always think I'm doing the musicians wrong by meddling with them. :LOL:

GOB(E) - Grand Omega Bosses (Edit). A version of Assasin with more layered guitar, a sexy Rachmaninoff middle bit, and more awesomeness. Can be downloaded from iTunes, part of the Knights Of Cydonia (or was it MotP? I forget) single.

I pretty much have tacked on all the b-sides to their corresponding albums. And BHaR has about 5 versions of Assassin on it. :chuckle:

I'm guessing that rage has to do with "the Florida situation." :indiff: Please don't burn your cds though! :p
