It's a mutt rip. 128kbps, and Uprising is from the itunes single version. But fuck it, I've been waiting a long time for this - I am happy. A legit rip should show up soon now (probably later today or tomorrow).
Muse Cover 'West Side Story' Classic For Video Music Award Promo
When Muse signed on to perform at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, they did it with one caveat: since the show was taking place just steps from Broadway, they wanted to do a show tune. For real.
So, of course, we obliged (after all, they are one of the hugest rock acts in the world). And while they'll perform "Uprising" — the first single from their upcoming The Resistance — during the VMAs telecast, we also let them loose on a classic from the Great White Way: "America," the flamboyant standard from Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's "West Side Story."
I've only listened once, but I love this. Much better then Black Holes..., and I'm really liking it front to back.
Unnatural Selection and the Resistance are awesome! the only track I don't really like is "Guiding Light" and "Eurasia". But a lot of these songs will be incredible live, even the ones I don't particularly love.
If you didn't like Muse before tho, this isn't going to change your mind. Might even make you hate them more?
"Art rockers gin up huge sound, but something's missing
Many art rockers have symphonic pretensions, but it takes gumption to compose a "symphony." Enter Muse: The British trio's fifth album closes with "Exogenesis: Symphony," a three-part suite full of grandiose orchestra of swells and lyrical koans like "Why are we? Who are we?" Muse's humongous cresting and tumbling songs have earned them a massive cult following, along with criticism that the band sounds a little too much like it's heroes.(Frontman Matthew Bellamy has a serious Thom Yorke fixation.) Songs like the industrial flavored "Uprising" prove again that Muse know how to whip up an almighty roar. But the lyrics are pompus doggerel ("Coercive notions evolve/A universe is trapped inside a tear"), and they borrow shamelessly from Radiohead and Queen without the former's musical invention or the latter's cheeky swagger. Ultimately, The Resistance is a patchwork of expert clichés that leaves a listener just wondering what the point of Muse is. Why are they? Who are they?
I don't - Uprising and I Belong to You as "key tracks". Puh-lease. I also thought the review felt kind of "brushed off". I remember reading it on the last page of the issue it was in, and thinking..really, what a short review. Didn't really say much. Focused more on the band then the record.
320 Scene Rip and V0 are now up on what.cd Not sure if they are legit.
i agree with the reviewer if this was abotu any other muse album. yes there is one blatant queen moment in united states of eurasia. and perhaps a bit with the whole orchestration and piano at the end. but come on, queen didnt invent that. and i dont think this album sounds anythign like radiohead FOR ONCE.
i dont even really like muse and i think this record is fucking fantastic
A V0 conversion from ORIGINAL APPLE LOSSLESS files, I was sent the entire album in Apple Lossless by supr_nova, being a fellow Australian . I will also upload a FLAC conversion from the original Apple Lossless as well!
This is NOT a transcode from a lower bitrate, I promise! It was converted using dbPowerAmp.
Feel free to do your spectral analysis and what-not, this will pass.
I think this is actually legit. If it is, I'll hook you guys up with links.
So I've listened to it about 5-6 times now and it feels on par with the other Muse albums. There are some tracks I really like (MK Ultra & Uprising), some tracks I definitely dislike and the rest is still up in the air. It's good enough though. Not world shattering by any means but good enough.
