I quite strongly dislike BHAR. Especially that godawful Supermassive Black Hole.

The songs that stand out to me:

Starlight: best on the album.
Invincible: shithouse on the album, but daaaamn it was great when I saw them live.

Knights Of Cydonia is even more overrated than One. It's like a big six minute intro to a 30 minute long prog classic, and then it just ends before doing anything and I feel unfulfilled. Having it as the closer is especially dumb.

Actually, I'm not sure I've heard anything by Ryan Adams.

I've heard all the others Andrew listed. I sort of liked Echo And The Bunnymen to start with, but they got old ridiculously fast and now I just find them to be dull and uninspired dross. I can't comprehend people who think U2 ripped them off. Television, yes, but the Bunnymen, no.

I used Supermassive Black Hole in my playlist.

It was the only shit song when I saw Muse live. Everything else was awesome. Those guys know how to rock the fuck out live.

I listen to them when I want a good laugh. Hysteria is a pretty OK song.

The rest of the time they're like a band trying to cover Queen and Radiohead at the same time...and trying WAAAAAAAY too hard at that.

it wasn't my fault! he was incredibly preppy looking, a theatre major, and he told me his favourite music was radiohead and showtunes. before we went on our date or whatever, i saw him act in a cabaret where him and some other people did an act (the sweet transvestite bit) from rocky horror.

what would you think??
