Another Muse thread

Ok, maybe not another one but mine at least. I know there are some fans on the board and some that are not. Im impressed with these guys though, despite what detractors say is nothing more than Bends era Radiohead. (by the way, whats the matter with that).
Anyway, Absolution is a brilliant album in my opinion and a worthy follow up to Origin of Symmetry. Thats all i really have right now I guess, maybe I am just in the mood to start threads, seems bang and clatter is asleep these days.

Discuss....

The more threads, the merrier!

I only have 'Showbiz'. I quite like the big songs on it, it has a few snoozers too I suppose. The good songs on it are amazing though.

I always wanted to buy Origin of Symmetry, but I could never find a good import price for it. I have a few of the songs, they seem better than the songs on Showbiz.

How would you rate their albums in order of 'goodness'?

i have listened to all their albums.. I was initially really impressed, but it faded after a while, it just seemed to be a bit tooo much. Not that it sounds too much like bends era radiohead, and not that that would be a bad thing, just that they seem a little overdone to me. I love New Born.. wicked song. And I will admit they very well may grow on me at some point if I listen more.

origins IS a great album, I admit, but I see nothing special about these guys. They're fun to listen to...the bass lines will kill you, and the melodies are addictive....but, i don't know, they feel too shiney and produced...
it's crazy good rock music with a suit on and hair slicked back

absolution is not as good as origins though

(PS...sometimes, the singer annoys me)

Ok, well, I have really been digging absolution lately and origins is soooo good but absolution is starting to come close to that for me. Youre right, good rock music. I guess I just dont find that too often that I like. Its easy for me to find good indie, alt/country, singer-songwriter or even electronic ambient stuff. But not rock. I dont know why.

Hey EP...

I have a friend in town here that has turned me on to Muse. She is a Muse FREAK.

Anyway...they are actually coming to the US next month...or so she says.

I will be at one of their shows!

1) Origin of Symmetry
2) Absolution
3) Hullabaloo (live + b-sides)
4) Showbiz

I would highly recommend seeing them live or purchasing the CD + DVD Hullabaloo release because they do put on a very impressive live show. Not to mention that the majority of their songs work far better in a live performance.

plug in baby
new born
stockholm syndrome
bliss
time is running out
citizen erased
dead star
shine <acoustic>
in your world
fury
hysteria
space dementia
hyper chondriac music
sunburn


..all recommended for starters
