Muse

I'm trying to "get into" this band, so can anyone recommend any songs or albums?

All three of their albums are great (Showbiz, Origin of Symmetry, Absolution), especially the last 2. However, I would say that Absolution is a little more song-oriented and easier to get into (Origin of Symmetry is more of a concept album). Also, if you are from the US, you have probably only heard Time is Running Out and Hysteria from Absolution.

I'm listening to Absolution now. It's an incredible album, Stockholm Syndrome is amazing.... Hulabaloo is another album, it's alright, but not as good as the other IMO. The live CD is good though.

They have (or should have) a new album coming out in May. I can't wait, I'm definitely going to see them live when they tour

As for recommended songs;

Butterflies and Hurricanes - It's a beautiful song, one of the best of Absolution

Citizen Erased - Possibly my favourite Muse song, it's kinda heavy, but that's what makes it good.

and.... The Small Print - Another one from Absolution, it has the most amazing guitar parts...

Their be a couple versions of Hullabaloo...the DVD of a gig in Paris i think it was at the Zenith or whatever it is called, then the CD with a live disc and a second CD which is a collection of early b-sides.

Admittedly a little, but they're different, not just a wannabe Radiohead. I can't wait for their new album, I'm so excited!
Muse rock

If you use your ears they don't.
Okay, example; Thom Yorke, he has a creepily amazing voice, compare that with Liam Gallager. Use your head before you post.
