NO to all of those. Those are all the usual producers for U2. Thats not a bad thing but just that they need someone else IMO. I voted Other.

I'm not sure how good Eno would be for Muse but he was great for U2 in the 80s and 90s and although significantly less experimental and creative helped pull Coldplay out of the ditch they dug themselves into with X&Y.

William Orbit helped Blur make one of their best albums too, though I don't think he'd work for Muse.

Seems like Nigel Godrich still is. I think it would be mighty interesting to hear what he could do with Muse.

Also, I would love to hear a Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) + Muse collaboration. That would be GODLY!

Stephen Sedgewick would be a very interesting one I think

But overall it's gotta be Rich Costey!

I'd be happy to see them work with John Leckie again.

This. And also Dave Botrill again would be pretty cool, I think.

Why is this a Spanish question? (upside down question marks anyone, lol!)

Anyway, yeah I think a reunion with Leckie might be interesting after all these years. Not Costey again - tried and tested with mixed results. Either way, I think they'd do well to work with a producer for the next one. They've proven they can produce themselves, but TR lacked direction in some ways - there was too much going on. I'm not saying they need to create more 'concept' albums, but a producer can give them a clearer steer of which way to go, musically. Someone new entirely might be refreshing, too.

I just want a cohesive album .

TR and BH&R are just all over the place in terms of sounds, production, lyrical themes, musical themes, influences, etc. Too disparate to be classed as great albums.

Look at all the best albums of all time; Blonde On Blonde, Revolver, Dark Side Of The Moon, Kid A, The Queen Is Dead, Led Zeppelin II, heck, even Origin Of Symmetry, they're isn't reckless amounts of needless genre-hopping.

Also, what really bugs me about BH&R and TR are the clichéed nods to their influences, Queen being a particularly painful example on Knights and USOE.

I'm not saying those two albums don't have some fantastic, creative songs, they do - Take A Bow, Map Of The Problematique, City Of Delusion, Uprising, MK Ultra, Exogenesis, all as good as anything Muse have ever produced, but they're lost amongst a sea of arsebaggery and pretension.

^ I agree with parts of that, which is why I think they need to be slapped back into a more succinct sound with a no-nonesense producer. I know producers don't define an album, and I'm not discounting Muse's own input to their creative sound, but they do almost need someone to musically whip them back onto a certain track, lol. It's funny, cos OoS had so many crazy concepts, musical styles etc that it almost shouldn't work. It verged on being too experimental, but somehow they made that a good thing.

Abso, however, was a contrast in that it stayed within the pillars of a concept - lyrically, thematically and musically. It wasn't necessarily rigid, but you could tell they weren't trying to jump all over the shop with too many different styles. If they can harness a level of both into the next one, it could be outstanding.

I don't have a huge problem with BH&R and TR being experimental in styles of music, but they did lack coherence because you weren't sure where it was going. I think that more of TR, especially because of the injection of 'soft' styles with Undisclosed Desires and the complete 180 shift when you get to Exogenesis. It tried to be conceptual with the whole 'resistance' theme, but I don't think that came across effectively enough. Hence - producer! lol
