Re-order Absolution

1. Intro-Apocalypse Please
2. Time is Running Out
3. Sing for Absolution
4. Falling Away With You
5. Ruled by Secrecy
6. Dead Star
7. Hysteria
8. Blackout
9. Butterflies & Hurricanes
10. Stockholm Syndrome
11. The Small Print
12. Fury
13. Endlessly
14. Thoughts of a Dying Atheist

I think Ruled by Secrecy would be a good track to follow on from Falling Away with You which in turn could be a decent follow-on to Sing for Absolution.
Meanwhile, Thoughts of a Dying Atheist would be a good finale track as it seems to be a decent theme for an ending track.

Glad people agree with Dead Star being in there. Can't agree with the RbS thing though. And Eternally Missed SHOULD be in there.

I still hold:

1. Intro.
2. AP
3. TIRO
4. SFA
5. SS
6. Dead Star
7. Nishe
8. Hysteria
9. B&H
10. Blackout
11. TSP
12. Endlessly
13. Eternally Missed
14. RbS

You can take it or leave it.

I don't really think the Intro should be a seperate track though.

Aye, well it makes no difference to me there.

Intro can be in AP for all I care. It sounds pretty cool either way. As an album, the order would be fine with the tracks I added, I think.

Don't like TOADA or TSP, and both along with the brilliant Endlessly just don't suit the album. They're the scruff of an otherwise perfectly crafted album. Interlude works well as an introduction to Hysteria. Without it you'd surely have to make it the album opener as it just doesn't flow off anything else.

I've tinkered yet again but I think I've found my perfect list:

Showbiz needed a major upheval to be perfect, as good as it was anyway.
In the end I chose:
1. Sunburn
2. Recess
3. Nature_1
4. Minimum
5. Agitated
6. Showbiz
7. Unintended
8. Bedroom Acoustics
9. Muscle Museum
10. Uno
11. Spiral Static
12. Con-Science

I know that's virtually indistinguishable from the original album but I think I've essentially replaced the OK tracks with really good ones. Tracks like Falling Down, Escape and Overdue sound more like B-Sides than many of their B-Sides were! Nature_1 and Recess in particular needed to be on the album.

OOS I decided to stick Megalomania in first, but for a reason:
1. Megalomania
2. New Born
3. Bliss
4. Space Dementia
5. Hyper Music
6. Plug In Baby
7. Citizen Erased
8. Micro Cuts
9. Screenager
10. The Gallery
11. Hyper Chondriac Music

I really liked the idea of having both HM and HCM on the same album and also The Gallery sounded perfect on OOS. It leads well into HCM as well. I had Megalomania between them but it didn't sound right and then got a brainwave. I stuck it at the front.

Absolution also looks better now, I think.
1. Intro (again, it doesn't really matter. It's AP essentially. It's there so I can remember the tracklist right)
2. AP
3. TIRO
4. SFA
5. Stockholm
6. Dead Star (Absolution sounds better with a heavier track after SS. FAWY is great but doesn't work there for me.)
7. Nishe (After a suggestion that it sounded a lot better than Interlude. I agree.)
8. Hysteria
9. B&H
10. Blackout
11. TSP
12. In Your World (Felt we needed another song with a bit of oomph and the piano intro fits in well. Got rid of Endlessly because thematically it's not quite working.)
13. Eternally Missed (IMO, better than any other song on the album so should have been there.)
14. Ruled by Secrecy

BHAR was easiest. Removing Invincible was step 1. I don't hate this song but it really would have been better as single only. It's just so bland next to the rest of it. Soldier's Poem also had to go eventually although I debated about that one. I wanted to see Easily and Glorious on so I fitted them in pretty easily. Assassin gets the GOB edit.

1. ToB
2. Starlight
3. SMBH
4. MOTP
5. Easily
6. Glorious
7. Assassin GOB
8. Exo-Politics
9. CoD
10. Hoodoo
11. KoC

Right, that's it perfect. I'll leave it as that now and shut up. Unless people disagree and can think of something better.

I've rearranged BH&R to:

1) Take A Bow
2) Supermassive Black Hole
3) Map Of The Problematique
4) Glorious
5) Starlight
6) Assassin (Grand Omega Bosses Edit)
7) Crying Shame
8) Exo Politics
9) City Of Delusion
10) Hoodoo
11) Knights Of Cydonia

And that order makes it my second favourite Muse album (after OOS of course).

After thinking it over, I have changed my preferred Absolution tracklist and have gone for:

1. Intro-Apocalypse Please
2. Time is Running Out
3. Sing for Absolution
4. Dead Star
5. Stockholm Syndrome
6. Falling Away With You
7. Hysteria
8. Eternally Missed
9. Blackout
10. Butterflies and Hurricanes
11. Fury
12. Endlessly
13. The Small Print
14. Ruled by Secrecy

I like ToDA, but I think it's better off as a B-Side or on an extended BHaR.

I wouldn't say we 'know better', it's just personal preference.

Yeah but 90% of the people in the Muse area have never heard of that term, so they're resigned to having their opinion stand as the law (according to them).
