about this album:
Musique is the fourth music album of Norwegian metal band Theatre of Tragedy, and the album that marked the switch from gothic metal with Early Modern English lyrics to a more electronic style, using Modern English.
The title on the album’s cover, “”, is the pronunciation of the English word ‘music’ transcribed in the International Phonetic Alphabet.

The change in musical direction for Theatre of Tragedy was also marked by the switch from traditional gothic and supernatural themes to lyrics based on modern life, including technology (Machine, Radio), nightlife (Image, The New Man) and streetfighting (Crash/Concrete).The album was re-released on July 27, 2009 as a limited edition of 2000 copies.
On the back of the album’s casing, “Space Age” is written in Russian: “Космическая эра”;moreover, words “Гагарин, Гречко, Леонов, Лайка, Белка и Стрелка” (“Gagarin, Grechko,Leonov, Laika, Belka and Strelka”) are recited throughout the song.

The song “Commute” has a line “It’s more fun to commute” in its lyrics, possibly a reference to
Kraftwerk’s It’s more fun to compute from their Computer World album, which in turn is a reference to “It’s more fun to compete” found on old pinball machines.
