Indeed.... the vocals are usually the main complaint I hear from people that aren't into Muse.

But it’s just a terminology applying to songs that are outside of the usual squared 3 minutes ones.
I'm surprised Dom seems to find prog rock distasteful! I mean, I never equated Muse with prog rock either since my perception of it is also similar to Dom's, but I rather like it personally...

New songs? Can't wait to hear them.

MB: Yes I think we would be happy to come back to something simpler. But we’re doing it to test our limits, to see how far and wide we can go. It’s experimentation. But we would be happy to go back to smaller venues.

(yet again)





end those bs stadium shows already ... bring on the intimate, strip down shows already
Ummm... the bit you quoted was them explaining why they loved stadium shows?

I don't really care to quote anything, but the whole interview made me very happy. I've been kind of confused by them lately and this was somewhat reassuring to me. Chris seems to be more talkative than ever Nothing from Matt either.

I liked what they had to say about playing small gigs and that it still appeals to them. I think they do like the massive ones much better though.

I liked that interview! Gives me hope that there may be a small venue date in Australia in the future

With gigs like San Siro, why wouldn't they?

I'm not sure how well the synthesised Exo would go though. The strings make the piece, but having said that it would be most risky on Pt 1 and they've done that fine for months now.

Really nice interview, thanks for posting and the translation.

I liked the bit where Matt talked about the responsibility they feel to fans, that made me feel a bit teary and the bit where Chris said that they'd rather do music for a few who love it than many who think it's okay. Also the part where Matt talks about his distrust of the establishment and established norms as I can relate to that, and the fact that his favourite song on OoS is Space Dementia. I love Space Dementia, I think it's probably my favourite from OoS too. Play it more then!!!

As for the venue size, it may seem obvious to say, but as long as the demand for them continues I can't see them doing many smaller concerts. They work hard enough as it is to perform to as many people as possible and smaller venues means more disappointed, ticketless, fans. I get the impression that they mean they are trying this, but they are not banking on it, so if doesn't work out and their popularity reduces, they won't mind playing in smaller venues as smaller venues also have their advantages, and that's a healthy way to approach it I think.

Anyway quite a few bits in there. The interview has made me feel a bit emotional. Love them.

And Matt, don't go and be a junky. It's probably one of those life experiences that it's better to give a miss! Just in case he's had a change of heart and is thinking of trying it!

Doesn't intimate also mean small venues? That means only about 1/4 of those who wants to go to the gig gets ticket.
