More interested in more of the electronic stuff than an acoustic album, but I'm convinced Muse can sell me on just about anything they record after Drones...so acoustics would be fun and hopefully still very exciting. Soldier's poem would have been perfect on a classic Queen album.

Ssh, don't say those words around here! People here don't like Soldier's Poem or Queen!

(Kidding!)

I think I recall some people taking the piss by having a hardcore mosh to Soldier's Poem at the Stade de France gigs in 2010.

Acoustic you can mosh too would be an interesting style. But then the return of it, if it happens, is still something of a sea change. Though maybe it'll just raise hopes it might get City of Delusion recalled on the next tour.

I've always liked SP, but I think it really suffers from it's placement on the album after MotP. I'm guessing they wanted to juxtapose the lighter acoustic song next to the heavy drop C electronic MotM, but it just didn't work. - it was too jarring and too much of a letdown. If SP had followed or led into Hoodoo I think it would have been better received.

Anyways, to the point of the thread, my guess is when Matt said "acoustic" he meant "lighter" by stripping away the heaviness of Drones and the electronics of T2L / Resistance. If so, I would love an "acoustic" album in they style of their lighter / more idiosyncratic songs like Recess, Screenager, Hoodoo, etc.

lol, I love SP and Queen (check my screen name) and lost any fears of folks disagreeing with my tastes years ago. no need to worry.

Agreed. 1-4 on BH&R is a series of pretty perfect transitions, but SP totally stops everything in its tracks. Would've made more sense around Hoodoo and CoD.

SP is a pretty specific political piece with a big contrast in tone that just kills the album dead where it's placed.
It didn't really even have a chance.

Yes. It always bugs me how little piano Matt plays in concerts anymore. He usually uses it for maybe two or two-and-a-half songs. In Hullabaloo, he used it for six; hell, on Absolution Tour, he technically used it on seven. Come on, Matt, don't completely abandon it as an instrument!

Nah, pretty sure it's guitar he's been referring to guitar with all this acoustic talk. Kinda backed up by his teasy pictures of him writing with one. He was asked about using the piano more again in the board Q&A though iirc and gave one of those "oh yeah should probs do that" answers that you can tell he'll forget about

That said, more piano on-record =/= more piano at gigs though. Just look at TR.

Matt already said he doesn't feel like he can perform well on stage while playing the piano.

It's like the only thing I agree with him about; this last tour he was barely even visible to a large portion of the arena where the piano was placed, and it just felt like staring at a stark black empty stage. And the crowd on the other side.
The piano song was a real low point (depressingly as it was AP) in what was a very unengaging show to begin with.

Well, you can't rub your nips and play piano at the same time tbf. Something's gotta be sacrificed.
