View Full Version : Fury or The Small Print

As some of you will know, on Absolution Dom and Chris voted to have The Small Print on the album instead of Fury, which was Matt's preferred choice (and is the Japanese bonus track).

However I think Fury is a far superior track, and wondered what other people thought.

TSP is a better song. I think both should have been on, i dunno why they limited themselves.

Fury does have the better lyrics, before BHAR Matt did say it was in his opinion the best lyrics he had written.

But Fury hasn't got as much energy to it, it's another creepy/gloomy song, whereas TSP is fast, up tempo and loud.

both are brilliant but i prefer TSP

Definately Fury, just for the lyrics, altho i do love TSP too like, shulda had both tbh :), Fury shulda been played more live, wile poo that, not the best decision to have tsp imo.

I belive The small print fits in Absolution more than Fury. TSP is a really fast song, it fits in with Butterflies and hurricanes and Endlessly before and after.

But if I had to choose one song it has to be Fury, but TSP is right behind.

Both are good but I prefer Fury - awesome guitar riff, bass verse riff and chorus.

It was my favourite muse song for a while.

Fury's great, but TSP is better. Put Fury in it's Japanese place on Absolution and it's OK, but sounds slotted in (better as a B-Side); take TSP out of Absolution and it's sorely missed.

That's exactly what I would have said appart from your last sentance. Imo TSP is better than Fury, but only just.

Fury is a way better song, but TSP fits in with the rest of the album so much more than Fury. If they'd put Fury on instead, it would have turned out too....dunno gloomy's the wrong word..argh someone might know what I mean

agree. TSP is a great song, although it doesn't sounds like a good muse song (if that makes any sense). Toada is terrible!

RustySlide
22-07-2007, 08:58 PM
i voted for TSP merely because i need a whammy pedal to play fury

and thats just not fun

but in truth

TSP is a good gig song, especially when trying to impress people who constantly listen to screamo shit...

and TSP sounds like some abbreviation that could have a hilarious outcome...

TSP just sounds more like a B-Side. Of a similar quality to Crying Shame and Easily. Fury is just pure awesomeness!

Raiko
23-07-2007, 12:24 AM
Oh don't get me wrong. I think Crying Shame and Easily rock too. Just they're comparable to TSP in erm.. Well they're of a pop rock sort of style. Just not as good as usual pop rock style songs like Supermassive Black Hole or Time Is Running Out, so should be relegated to B-sides for something a little more technical. Like Fury! :D

Mozza
24-07-2007, 12:51 PM
Absolution has a silly ending. And I only like the heavy songs and RBS that much. Endlessly and Blackout are ok too. Rest is shit, especially TOADA.

TSP in terms of what works best with the other songs on Absolution, but Fury is one of the best songs Muse have done me thinks :yesey:

In my opinion Eternally Missed would have been better than both of them.

Milky Joe
26-07-2007, 08:46 PM
I'm not sure if Fury should have been on Absolution (as it is Muse's longest album anyway), but I think it deserved a bit more live action, as Muse barely played it after the album came out.

Mozza
27-07-2007, 11:18 AM
Absolution should be:

1.Intro
2.Apocalypse Please
3.Time Is Running Out
4.Sing For Absolution
5.Stockholm Syndrome
6.Hysteria
7.Endlessly
8.The Small Print
9.Blackout
10.Fury
11.Butterflies and Hurricanes (full length with additional guitars)
12.Falling Away With You
13.Ruled By Secrecy

Raiko
27-07-2007, 03:13 PM
Hmm... I prefer FAWY in it's original place. It sets up Hysteria well. That and i'd put Fury after Butterflies & Hurricanes. But I agree generally that Fury should have been on the album.

I'm with you Fury's better, but that doesn't mean I have a problem with The Small Print. Kind of hard to see where Fury would fit in alongside the other tracks on Absolution seeing as I've heard the album soooooo many times it would be odd to imagine another or a different song in there somehow.

11.Butterflies and Hurricanes (full length with additional guitars)
12.Falling Away With You

WHAT?! Put the guitars on the album? No wayz! And also, the guitar part didn't exist when the album was made, so. I think Absolution's track listing is perfection itself.

The better song is Fury obviously. But I still love TSP and think it deserves to be on the album. As most have said, it just 'fits' better. But I think both should have been on there to be honest - just release the Japanese one as a worldwide Abso album and it'd be the best 15 songs to ever be put on 1 cd! :happy:

03-09-2007, 10:10 AM
Fury is the better song, but TSP fits in on the album better.

I second this. Fury seems to dark and brooding which is what makes it a masterpiece of a song. However, TSP fits into the theme of Absolution better, as Absolution has had its fair share of dark songs. We need a song to accelerate our heartbeats and cause endless headbanging too....

This is why TSP fits better on the album but Fury is absolutely superior!:rolleyes:

It's known that Matt wanted to put Fury on Absolution, but Chris and Dom overruled him which meant The Small Print was placed on the album instead (unless you got the Japanese album where you got both).

This got me thinking... suppose you had decided the other 13 slots on the album and you had to choose between Fury and TSP... which song would you have included on Absolution?

Personally, I would've kept TSP as it has a more universal lyrical meaning and is a lot more heavy instrumentally.

Conxscience
04-10-2008, 09:07 PM
I think it depends on how the album would have been ordered, had Fury been on it. Fury is a lot slower than The Small Print, and like, wouldn't fit in with where TSP is.
But I'm not sure.
I prefer Fury over TSP, but whether it would sound right in it's place on the album is another question...



...which is the question you asked, and I've not actually answered.
(:


I dunno. Yes, TSP on Absolution rather than Fury. It fits in better musically on Absolution than what Fury would have done.
But I dunno.
I might listen to Absolution, but put Fury where TSP is meant to go. See what it sounds like.

So they have a band agreement that majority decides what tracks go on the albums?

05-10-2008, 07:45 AM
i used to prefer Fury but after hearing it many times I realised it's too lyrically repetitive. I know most of Muse songs are like that but with Fury, I'm VERY aware that it's repetitive.

Last Year - preferred Fury
This Year - prefer TSP

Harald Harestad
05-10-2008, 01:27 PM
I'd keep The Small Print. Fury is too grand to be placed anywhere on the album, would probably blow the bloody roof off.

05-10-2008, 01:35 PM
If they had kept Fury at the original speed in some of the early live versions it would've been better.

Fury everytime.

So much better than TSP.

Fury IMO. Powerful and brilliant song.

TSP always felt as though it was too weak to be an album track. It signified where Absolution got a little bit weaker (TSP, TOADA & RBS are not as good, song-wise, in comparison to SFA, Blackout, SS, TIRO, AP, Hysteria and B&H).

Should have been a b-side really.

Sing for Absolution
Citizen Erased

I discovered Fury a couple of months ago, and it blew me away. (Was checking out my Absolution DVD again). They should definitely play that song way more often, live. TSP is okay too, but I think Fury sounds better.

Fury. Way better than TSP

This might sound weird to some, but when I listen to Fury, especially the beginning of the song it feels like I'm with the devil or something. It just sounds haunting...i love it

This is really hard. I don't know. Both?!

Although The Small Print is a fantastic song and should be played more. But so should Fury.

I don't know which one I prefer more, they're both very different songs.

I think Fury would be too slow between the other songs of the album, so Dom and Chris made a good choice.

oabela
22-02-2010, 10:18 AM
Fury is a far superior track, and therefore shold have been on a single, like it is, to promote Sing For Absolution, which, in my opinion is worse than Fury. I think if Fury was on Absolution, and The Small Print on Sing For, Absolution would have been a little bit more sucesfull, and Sing For Absolution would have not been, although TSP is a great song!
I love them both. :)

Mozza
22-02-2010, 04:49 PM
TOADA should never have made the cut.

Why did it have to be between TSP and Fury?

I'd have to go with Fury. It's got the better riffage and better lyrics. Plus it's far more atmospheric, and it's more fun to play on t'Bass.

D'no. Fury has one of the best and the worst Muse lyric in the very same line.

But The Small Print is awesome as well...

Why didn't they just put both on? What's this obsession with 11/12 songs?

I personally think TOADA is a bit shit. Fury would have fitted fine just before RBS. Oh well. The fact they still very occasionally play Fury and never play TOADA (or Endlessly and never played FAWY) is at least a good thing

I think Fury would've fit better in between SS and Interlude,the ending riff would've lead into the beginning riff of Fury and the ending distorted riff of Fury would've lead perfectly into Interlude.TOADA is a boring song,however does have a decent guitar solo.Never understood why people like FAWY so much.

FURY!

In my opinion besides Citizen Erased the best song from Muse. It`s just so epic...

(Damn you Chris and Dom for voting against it to be on the album...;)).

The Small Print on the other hand is in my opinion just an average, if not even weak song from Muse.

Fury is good

TOADA is the worst song ever

Eternally missed is incredible

The Small Print is my second favourite song.


sooooooooo.

Intro
Apocalypse Please
Time is Running Out
Sing for Absolution
The Small Print
Falling away with you
Interlude
Hysteria
Blackout
Butterflies and Hurricanes
Fury
Eternally Missed
Stockholm Syndrome
Ruled By Secrecy

that is the best track listing for absolution imo.

Stockholm Syndrome 1st single but a hard copy. - b-side: The Groove

Time is Running Out 2nd single - b-side: Thoughts of a dying atheist

Hysteria 3rd B-side: Endlessly (which should also be the bonus track)

The Small Print 4th

B&H 5th

are you kidding ?

the amazing thing about absolution is that all the songs either make a minor change in pace or none at all, which is why endlessly is just like a sore tooth in respects to fitting in with the rest of the album. i struggle to see where fury would have fit in, interlude then fury then hysteria would maybe work but, just no.

just my opinion perhaps someone will correct me.

the only thing that does it favours with that argument is the lyrics are still along the "end of the world" theme.

okay this is starting to bug me, what do people hear in fury that i don't. it SHOULD be a good song but a riff played as such a slow pace is just so boring and the vocals aren't exactly "this should wake 'em up either." okay so we've established it's a slower tempo song, now songs that are slow from muse should be fucking beautiful like blackout, or falling away with you for example. where matt's voice compliments the music. in fury's case this is non-existent !

so why is it loved so much ?

TSP is just a fairly generic heavy song. There's not all that much to it. It would have been a great b-side, but it looks pathetic sitting alongside superior 'rocky' songs such as Stockholm Syndrome and Hysteria.

It's that dark, haunting guitar. Fury is powerful, emotional and euphoric.

Plus

"and we'll pray that there's no God to punish us and make a fuss" - deep - lyrically and musically.

And if I haven't said already. Fury is my favourite of the two.

the lyrics of both songs are deep

only this is lol:

sell, i'll sell your memories
for 15 pounds per year
but just the good days


But I prefer muse singing about the absence of a god than about some bitch he had a relationship with

And if I listen to the music itself and not the lyrics I still like fury way better than the small print

No, they shouldn't. They can be beautiful, but that doesn't mean they are better that way. The haunting guitar, the dark bassline, and the lyrics- It all makes for an amazing song. I think it's better than Blackout, FAWY, and a lot of other slow songs, combined.

Fury does have the better lyrics, before BHAR Matt did say it was in his opinion the best lyrics he had written.

But Fury hasn't got as much energy to it, it's another creepy/gloomy song, whereas TSP is fast, up tempo and loud.

I voted for Small Print because it has more energy ;)
