Thoughts? Does anyone care?
and I'm still waiting.
If this means bands being more productive, I'm largely for it but I'm not seeing much evidence at the minute.
(I say largely because I still like the idea of a body of work that you're intended to hear from start to finish...)
as well. Many times.
i guess they did release an ep with in rainbows, but they haven't really done what they said...
I wan't to hear a structured album not just a collection of tracks released individually. Even if they released a "best of" every few years compiled of all the songs from that period, I'm still against it. Once they release this "best of" we will have heard all the songs, I like the mystery of an album when you will probably only have heard one or two tracks. It's also not likely to flow properly in this format. Not a happy Muse fan here. :(
Hopefully it's all talk and nothing comes of it.
I'm not too fussed if Muse decide to do it, but I wouldn't want to see everyone doing this. I like the album format, it's one of the reasons I very rarely download individual tracks.
something that flows from start to finish, like an adventure or something.
Heck I wouldn't much care if Muse did it but here is hoping it doesn't catch on.
This is obviously apart from what I've read/heard about them. I take it that you're not a Muse fan then? Just imagine if your favourite band was doing it. I suppose you already have and that's why your concerned. Silly me.
If this was the new "way forward" for bands I would quite possibly kill myself (A bit of an exaggeration obviously but I needed to express my horror at the possibility of this happening).
don't get me wrong, I'm not their biggest fan but I own their albums and thought they put on a great live show a Leeds fest a couple of years ago. But, yes as you say, I would be highly distressed if a band I realy loved decided to do this which is why I stuck this up here! :o)
..but you are a Chelsea fan.
I don't actually dislike Muse that much. I'm just getting a bit sick of seemingly every band talking about changing how they will release music when you know most won't do anything about it
people need to learn to walk it like they talk it, because it's becoming a bit cringe-worthy
I've probably got nothing to worry about.
concern in life right now is sitting through another 3.5 hours of TMV fucking around on stage tomorrow.
I'll need to just eradicate from my memory that these shows ever happened and continue to enjoy the studio output
what happened?im seeing TMV tonight please tell me they played some "songs" at least?
wow - so an album full of singles that have been overplayed over the course of 2 years?!?
I don't care too much though, because i think they're on the decline anyway and hadn't intended to purchase any future release
I hate you die, die, die, die, die, die, die. Good morning by the way and I actually agree with you on the "album full of singles point".
I will purchase the next Muse album even if it's terrible, it's unconditional love.
Yeah, when a "best of" gets released, it's far more enjoyable when it's not just a singles collection. The latter are for parents' Christmas presents, not for mid-year release.
Plus having a single track here and there is irritating.
PLUS Muse have said they want to experiment more with the sound that they did on Supermassive Black Hole which means only this: nasty student clubs nationwide will inevitably be playing each track released until ears bleed and liquid floods from noses
1. Very orchestral, songs with layers & layers of noisy trumpets, violins etc.
2. Some slower piano songs with Bellamy's customary high pitched groans.
3. More use of electronics but mainly as a background to the main event so to speak, can't over do this.
4. Absolutely nothing like Starlight, please.
5. Obviously there has to be some spacey sounds in there somewhere.
Lets call it Galactic Star Eruption,
I'll think of a track listing later.
Black Holes wasn't as bad as most other Muse fans seem to make out. Map Of The Problematique, Assassin, City Of Delusion, Exo-Politics and Hoodoo were all good. Take A Bow, Starlight and Knights Of Cydonia were pretty terrible the rest were just average.
album instead of Muse, please?
BH&R i enjoyed Take A Bow, Map Of..., Hoodoo and thought City of Delusion was alright, albeit a bit Muse-by-numbers.
I didn't think it was a disaster of an album, but by no means a great one
thing is very mid-90's when Britpop bands thought that was the way to make a good album. It isnt.
Death to all Britpop and there crappy sing-a-long singles.
so do we not want good quality output from people from now on? The problem of non-album format is that artists won't maybe be as selective about what they release everything and a load of not-that-great songs will be out there for public consumption.
but if they save up their best and most immediate songs and release those as a set then people like DiS will probably accuse them of trying too hard/selling out/abandoning 'high art' in favour of hits...
Some bands write really decent singles but others are better on albums.
but I'm starting to tire of Muse anyway. They are (were?) my favourite band but they just seem to be getting further and further away from what made them good in the first place, still great live. But this, and with reports that they're going to go down the Super Massive Blackhole road musically it's seems like they're never going to release an album as good as OOS again. Sad.
Matt Bellamy can only answer your calls in falsetto
