^^ That's probably the best way to start... But be prepared when you listen to the first two... I think you have to be "open minded" at first But I fell in love with New Born from OOS the first time I heard it, I think it's still my favourite song. Well it depends on the day...

There are only about two and half hours to go as of now…

I apologise for the running commentary, although, I am about to witness one of the most over the top, lovingly operatic, honestly derivative rock bands on earth.

Have you guys heard Glorious? It's a bonus track of BHAR. My cd doesn't have it but I already listened to the it. I think it's very beautiful... Symple but deep lyrics and cute melody.

I really like the style of Absolution, but I don't listen to it that often anymore because it's a bit of a downer....I have to be in the right mood. It's the only album I have by them. Can anyone recommend another Muse album to me that I would like given my like for Absolution? An upbeat album in that style (early Radiohead, operatic rock) would be heavenly.

It's not that Absolution is a downer, it's just too damn long. I can only play it straight through on rare occasions - it's a bit of a large chunk of pomp to bite off all at once.


If someone were trying to get into Muse, I'd recommend Black Holes or Origin of Symmetry. If they were more of a pop rock/mainstream rock fan I'd say BHAR, if they were a hard rock fan or metal fan I'd say Origin of Symmetry. OoS has some AMAZING melodic hooks, though, moreso than Absolution in my opinion.

After seeing them at Point Depot last weekend, I am totally blown away. It seemed like a completley different band then the one I saw in Ohio and the crowd was fantastic.

I got some video to upload as soon as I unpack and recover....

^^ I went to college after the concert too... Knights of Cydonia was always playing inside my head the whole day. I was so tired but happy!! I slept three hours that night because Lisbon is about four hours away from where I live... But it was worthy

My WWII Montage with Knights of Cydonia!

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oid=1397722845

It's about the U.S. creating the atomic bomb to defeat the Nazis and Japanese, becoming the very monster they want to destroy

tell me what you think!

Woah.

That's some powerful imagery you've created there - it's really good.

You've made it fit well with the song - nice one.
