they haven't been ending with KOC so far so you may want rethink that strategy.

FWIW, the more I hear Big Freeze, the more Edge'y it sounds.

That's fine. If KOC remains in the setlist in another position, I will use it as my bathroom song.

What I really want to hear live this go-round is Bliss! It is my favorite Muse song, and in my eight times seeing them live (granted, five of those were opening for U2 in NJ 2009 and Buenos Aires 2011) they have never played it.

Finally bought it during lunch today.

I read that Muse have been the #1 most listened to artist on Last FM this last week, supposedly they're getting almost double the listens than #2 is receiving.

I impulse bought it at Target yesterday. Still haven't listened to it. I have to drive up to Seattle tomorrow so I'm saving it.

I am in the same boat with you on Bliss! I have seen them 10 times since 2007.. I need to hear Bliss.. My fav too.. I have "Give me all the peace and joy in your mind" engraved on the back of my iPod..

I too would be thrilled to hear "Bliss" live someday. That'd be awesome.

Oh, really?

That's pretty cool-who's the number 2 artist being played right now?

It sounds VERY U2-ish. I really like that song, too.

Yeah, my very first Muse show they played Bliss and we got the most epic Stockholm Syndrome ever. It was I think 9 minutes of riffage.

First six tracks on Origin of Symmetry are awesome.

Niiiiiice.

I don't know how long "Stockholm Syndrome" lasted at the show I saw, but it was still pretty cool nonetheless-I've yet to come across a bad live version of that song.

Does anyone else have the same feeling about that song as I do?
I really, really hated it when it was released, objectively I still do, but when they played it @U2's show at Giant's Stadium my opinion was swayed a bit, it was vastly improved in person. That was right after The Resistance came out right?

There's little in the rock genre as a whole that'll do that for me outside of the emotional content from the songwriter. Being a lyricist myself, lyrics are a big thing for me. That's one of the big things that elevates my connection/devotion to a band beyond the group of artists that I enjoy listening to at the right times for entertainment (Muse belongs to this group, U2 is head of the class in the former).

Well that's fair enough. For me personally lyrics are probably the least important factor when it comes to bands/artists - they don't really play any role when it comes to my big favourites like U2, PJ Harvey, Muse etc. I can think of very few artists whose lyrics I can honestly say enhance my love of their music.

I definitely like paying attention to the lyrics in songs, if for no other reason than to learn what to sing along to and everything .

But with Muse, I expect their lyrics to be goofy and cheesy and weird, because that fits with their music and the themes they discuss. If you're going to build an album around apocalyptic themes or paranoia and conspiracies, the kinds of lyrics Muse come up with make sense in that context. It's like the musical equivalent of the dialogue in big action films for me, if you will.

I have found some personal connection to Muse's lyrics, myself, either in the sense that I could relate to what they're talking about or I just like the story or weird topic they're talking about. But be it serious or silly, I can appreciate and be intrigued by what each artist I like is trying to do with the lyrics they write, even if that's not the biggest reason why I listen to some of them.
