The only one I could really see doing a solo album is Matt. He'd probably recruit Dom and do a Coldplay-on-the-radio sort of thing, steeped in synth walls and pop harmonisation. Most Muse fans will hate it.

Chris has already given us a decent idea of what his solo work might sound like. Can't say I'm terribly excited to hear more.

Would like to draw attention to an interview with James Dean Bradfield from the Manics. He was asked what he learned from making a solo album. His reply was "not to do one" lol.

Also, see Thom Yorkes and Till Lindemanns recent solo albums. They just do not work.

They "don't work" because largely the fans of their band just go into it expecting something, and are disappointed.
Muse sort of manages to do this with their fans every album anyways, so they'd be at least in the same boat.

Matt's would be maybe interesting to see how much what he writes morphs once he presents it to Dom and Chris, or what he feels he needs to write "for" them. I'd be very interested, but he's likely to just get fat on the couch writing film scores instead.

I haven't actually listened to Tomorrow's Modern Boxes, but The Eraser (Yorke's first solo album) was pretty good. Damon Albarn and Mike Vennart have released good solo albums in the last couple of years too IMO. (although the latter being classed as a solo album is debatable as other members of Oceansize did contribute...)

Two examples do not make a point.

Chris Corner, Markus Krunegård (unknown to this board but still), Thåström (same), Björk, Beyonce, Serj Tankian did well on his own, Justin Timberlake, Robbie Williams, Bernhoft,Phil Collins, Lou Reed, Gwen Stefani, Iggy Pop, Paul McCartney, Dallas Green, Eric Clapton. Michael Jackson for christ's sake. There are so many examples.

80% of those are pretty dreadful imo

a film score by Matt would be nice. Nothing else would really get me excited. I wasn't exactly amazed by what we've heard of Chris's songwriting so far and as for Dom I just can't see him doing anything really different from something like vicky cryer.

but since I think Muse themselves have pretty much become a huge meh/ew, I don't think their solo projects would be any better.

Change from 2 examples to 13. Thanks for the help Tjet :P

Would not mind Matt doing a film soundtrack. Anything else, not too sure.

and you love the music of the bands/groups they belonged to, yeah? We're obviously talking success.

If you like Eraser, you would probably like TMBs. Just not a big fan of the electronica Yorke does.

nah but is there really any other way of having this discussion that won't just be "I like this" "I don't"?

I mean, I like Thoms solo output, does that mean Tuck Norris is wrong?

I'm not really one to sit and listen to film soundtracks, and I probably wouldn't change because Matt started doing them. It's obviously his dream job, though, and I'm kind of surprised he hasn't done it already.

I am quite picky on Radiohead lol. Cannot stand Kid A but one of my favourite tracks Optimistic is from that album. ( probably because i like the guitars, but then, i like All I Need too, and that does not have guitars iirc?
