I've now listened to Madness several times. It's definitely better than anything on The Resistance.

Yep, I suspect that may very well be the case. While I'm not in love with Madness, I didn't scream "OMG, what kind of crap is this?" I consider that promising.

I've seen comparisons to U2, Prince and George Michael, and I do hear elements of each in Madness. It could be worse.

Good call, bollox, I would LOVE to hear them do "The Fly" . That would kick ass.

No, actually by all accounts they seem to respect and like each other. I seem to remember hearing something once about Chris Martin being influenced by a song on one of Muse's albums, he liked the organ sound they used on it or something, and wanted a similar thing for one of Coldplay's songs. And there's video from some early festival Muse were at back in, like, 2000, I think, where Matt told the crowd to check out Coldplay at some point, 'cause they were good. I'm not sure what U2Fanatic means with that, either, but eh, well.

Also, further confirmation of the U2 vibe:

As I said in the "now playing" thread, I cannot stop listening to "Madness". It has wormed its way into my head . Cool to see Chris Martin likes it, too.

Mmhm. Exactly. I'm looking forward to it, will be fun to finally hear everyone's thoughts on the album when it comes out.

Plus, sometimes these songs sound even better live, too. I wasn't sure about the song "Invincible" when I first heard it, but then when I saw it performed live I definitely found a new appreciation for the song and now I like it.

I listened to that album last night.

I still really like it, myself. I think it holds up pretty well and there's some great songs on there *Shrugs*.

Haha, yes.

You know what part of the song I've decided I particularly love? Towards the end, when Matt's singing the whole, "Come to me..." bit-the whole song just suddenly gets this bright, shimmery, ethereal glow about it that makes it sound incredibly pretty.

some Muse fans think his comment was a practical joke but maybe its true.. and not alot are fans of Coldplay either. ( I am though). Musers are always joking around as is the band so these things that could get posted could be fake. I think its legit tho. That's what I was getting at..

The new @muse single has completely restored my faith in British music. It's been on repeat for (literally) two days now. Buy it! Jesse

If Keane and Coldplay like something, it must be good.

Gotcha. Yeah, I had a feeling you might've been referring to it possibly being a joke or something, 'cause your reasoning certainly makes sense. Thanks for expanding on it, though .

I like both bands, too. It's always neat to hear comments from other artists about a band's work-they often seem more open about all kinds of music than the fans do sometimes.

That is a good point. At the very least at lot of songs are more tolerable live, unless they're not... *cough* Neutron Star Collision *cough*...

That one falls into the not tolerable live under any circumstances category.

I think NSC would be tolerable if it wasn't for those god-awful lyrics. I mean, lyrics were never Matt's strong point and at best they're just average, but this song is just... abominably bad.

Madness is a proof that Matt can write a love song with lyrics that don't make me want to throw up.

The lyrics to "Starlight" are rather nice, too, I think.

"Neutron Star Collision" isn't one of their top songs, no, but eh, I don't mind it *Shrugs*. I just mainly find the music in it pretty more than anything.
