In 2001, this second effort by Muse was a great success worldwide and set the stage for the years to come. It was dark: very dark. The often torn voice of Matthew Bellamy offered millions of teenagers a point of reference. Some critics have panned the British band for its grandiloquent, even pompous tendencies. But this group's strength lies precisely in its romantic flights and excessive expressions of emotion, that is how they have touched millions of people who feel the same way. To celebrate and pay tribute to this landmark album which defined an era, Muse have brought out this new version, subtitled XX Anniversary RemiXX. They have called on veteran producer Rich Cosey, who worked on almost every album released since this one first came out. Cosey remixed and remastered all the tracks for a clearer, more dynamic sound, which helps us rediscover sounds which were previously muffled by the rather less subtle first mix. For example, the strings on the pieces Space DementiaCitizen Erased and Megalomania are much clearer on this version. The same goes for the harpsichord on Micro Cuts. There is also a repeat appearance for another song: Futurism was not in the original track listing, except on the Japanese release, where it featured as a bonus track. It fits harmoniously between Feeling Good and Megalomania. Another novelty for the twentieth anniversary edition is the new cover art by artist Sujin Kim. It is a digital reworking of the original drawing. All in all, anyone who enjoyed Origin of Symmetry the first time around will find that this revamped version offers a stronger, more exciting experience than the original. © Yan Céh/Qobuz

In 2001, this second effort by Muse was a great success worldwide and set the stage for the years to come. It was dark: very dark. The often torn voice of Matthew Bellamy offered millions of teenagers a point of reference. Some critics have panned the British band for its grandiloquent, even pompous tendencies.

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electro group in history, founded by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, who died of cancer on May 6, 2020, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition and stage performance, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotion and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
