Muse's Acoustic songs...

Hello to you all,

I am wondering since a long time now why Muse aren't recording (or so it seems) any new acoustic versions of their songs... As far as I know, the most recent one was an acoustic version of "Time is running out" (or am I wrong??). I really miss their acoustic songs because I think that's where their musical abilities, that make them stand out in the world of rock music, can be heard in their purest way. And i prefer Matt's more precise and more careful singing in the acoustic versions, his voice is very clear and he sustains the notes longer and sings ALL the words COMPLETELY (by the way: don't you think it's a bit of a shame how he sings "Unintended" and "Hoodoo" on the Haarp-dvd? so unarticulated, it destroys the beauty of those whole (brilliant!) songs! Such a pity! The same goes for the latest versions of "Fury": Why on earth does he only sing "...to punish u- and make a fu-"?? I miss the former brilliance of "Fury" from the (best-of-all-dvds-)Absolution-dvd...). I would love it if they decided to record an acoustic album, for a change... Muse unplugged, wouldn't that be great?
Well, I really love ALL their acoustic songs, but if I were to name my three favourites (difficult task, indeed!!), they would be:
1) Sing for absolution (Radio 2 performance, it's on the "Hurr&Butt"-single): MASTERPIECE!!!
2) Hate this and I'll love you (early B-side): BRILLIANT! I love the solo before the last corus!
3) Muscle Museum (another early B-side): BEAUTIFUL, such a young, clear voice, and so well played...

Well now it's your turn: What are your favourite acoustic versions of Muse-songs? And what would you think about a "Muse-unplugged"-album? Thanks for answering! And happy new year! (-:

P.S.: As I said, it's a difficult task, chosing only three songs... If I were to name two more, they would be "Cave" acoustic and, of course, "Bedroom acoustics"... Wonder if Matt is still able to play that song...

I have to agree, every acoustic song they've done sounds great. That's the mark of a true band, to play unplugged and lose nothing in the music.

Favorite acoustic songs:

Shine
Map of Your Head
SFA
TIRO
Unintended
Hoodoo(the acoustic parts)

I'm not a big fan of TiRO acoustic either, ortoPilot's is much better!
