    Default Muse's 5th album - the first full appreciation and discussion thread.

    Here's what I've gathered:

    Release is slated in or around September 2009. It is likely going to include a 3-part concerto composed by Matthew Bellamy over the course of several years. There are also rumors of a possible "space rock" solo, which could be up to 45 minutes long (though I doubt it will be that long). The overall feel of the album, according to Bellamy, is going to be closer to the fast-paced feel of the song "Supermassive Black Hole". Chris Wolstenholme said that they're doing whatever they can to make it their greatest album yet.




    This is going to be so sick. Discuss.

    Supermassive is not "fast paced".

    And damn, I loved muse up until last album. Except Cydonia was still awesome. But stuff like Starlight and stuff I didn't like, its juts cheese. Supermassive was cool to begin with but got old quick unfortunately.

    Origin Of Symmetry > Absolution > ShowBiz > Black Holes & Revelations. This new one sounds like it'll be pretty cool though.

    Well, "fast-paced" wasn't the word they used, I just couldn't remember the exact wording. Maybe it was something like "dance feel" or something.

    And I want to hear the concerto and, if they actually put it in, the space rock solo. I'm expecting something like this, but longer and more epic:

    hmm not sure I agree, I generally go with origin - showbiz - absolution - black holes.

    Funny going to a gig when absolution was out andn o one knew any of their old showbiz stuff. Awesome band though, best band I've ever seen live without a doubt.

    I remember when I was told of story of crushed velvet, candle wax, and dried up flowers. The figure on the bed all dressed up in roses, calling.beckoning to sleep offering a dream. The words were as mystical as purring animals. The circle of rage the ghosts on the stage appeared. The time was so tangible I\\'ll never let it go. Ghost stories handed down, reached secret tunnels below. No one could see me. I fell into yesterday. Our dreams seemed not far away.

    ^ Showbiz has better moments in it, but absolution is very consistent I think. I went to a show a couple of years ago after black holes was released. Amazing show, I was stoked when we got to hear micro cuts! And new born led into quite a random jam too. They didn't play any off Showbiz though, not even sunburn.

    The lead singers voice makes me want to cry sometimes. Especially in Con-Science.

    x2. I can rank them by how much I like each one, but in my opinion they're all great. The recording itself could use a little work here and there, but the music is AWESOME.

    Yes it does. But it is the epitome of manly - robots, cowboys, and all that good stuff.
