God, I thought I was getting mad... I thought I was the only one who could hear an U2 (zooropa or around those beautiful years) vibe in Madness...

Lol, I think the Zooropa comparisons with Madness aren't that far fetched. It took me a long time to appreciate the album. And now I'm hearing Madness more often (it's the hit of the week on the radio), I'm starting to get used to it. I still miss the old, louder Muse. But it's not actually as bad as I thought it was. Quite a relaxing song. The solo still reminds me of "I Want To Break Free" tho.

Oh, yeah, there's a definite similarity between the two songs. But hey, being compared to U2 or Queen isn't a bad thing, so... Also, am I weird, or does anyone else hear a slight bit of a Duran Duran influence, too, like, early '90s era Duran Duran, towards the end, when the music gets all shimmery and whatnot?

I love Muse's loud and crazy songs, too, no question. They do know how to make some kickass rock songs, and I don't ever want them to let go of that side of them altogether. But I'm also one of those who likes their more pop-oriented, shall we say, moments as well, so that's probably partially why I'm into this song. Glad to hear it's growing on you some, though. And again, for those who aren't as into this stuff, I understand this won't be to everyone's liking, and that's fine, too.

In other news, I saw this thing online earlier stating that Muse will be the musical guest on "SNL" on October 6th (yay!):

Seth MacFarlane to Host Saturday Night Live Premiere — Season 38 - TVLine

So there's that to check out in the future as well .

Will have to let my sister know about that, then-she can watch for Daniel, I can watch for Muse (she does like Muse, but I think Daniel Craig would be the bigger pull for her there).

And that show is airing ON my birthday. Oooh, the first week of October in general will be a very nice week for me .

^ It is growing on me a little bit, but I still don't think it's a great song, and the lyrics, which aren't exactly Muse's strength in general, appear to me particularly dull this time.

I'll wait for the album to arrive before I will judge their new music, but I hope it has more to offer than "Madness".

Cool! Not bad, nice to hear it in a live setting. Thanks for sharing that. What show is that supposed to be from?

(Also, shallow moment: Matt looks hot .)

Wasn't sure about it in the beginning, but something still made me buy it upon release, and it's grown on me big time, like a fungus, but a good fungus. It's really a fucking cool song, and yes there is most definitely a Zooropa vibe going on here. Very different compared to anything else on the radio right now. Loving this tune, and I look forward to their album.

Ah, okay. Thanks. Lucky people. Eh, well, they'll start popping up on U.S. TV soon, too.

On a totally different note, so today will mark 5 years since I saw Muse at Red Rocks. My, how time flies.

Muse -"Sing For Absolution"- live @ Red Rocks, CO - 9/18/07 - YouTube

Thrilled to death they did this song .

Muse played a gig in Germany which included Supremacy, Panic Station, Animals, Save Me and Follow Me. There are recordings of each one, not very good quality at the moment. I'm suddenly back to being excited about this album.

Here's part of Panic Station. It's super funky and features some great falsetto.

Muse - Panic Station - The 2nd Law @ E-Werk Koln 20-9-2012 - YouTube

Here's Animals. The guitar solo is
