thoughts of a dying atheist is very underrated too in my opinion... And how great is Hyper Chondriac Music? I fell in love with it when I saw Hullabaloo...

I can't seem to get into Muse at all. I know it's a tired comparison, but a friend of mine said they sounded to him like a mediocre version of Radiohead. I'm not sure if that's a great comparison, but I could agree with the mediocre part. Maybe just not my thing.

They're more like an amalgam of OK Computer-era Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, and early '70s Queen.

I could totally see Muse scoring a movie Highlander or Flash Gordon-style. In fact, I will make a movie someday where they do such a thing, just so I can explode with joy when it kicks ass.

^^ A lot of people said that back in 2000 when they were in the begining. In fact Radiohead was an inspiration as many other bands are (especially Rage Against The Machine, they worship them). The first album, Showbiz, may sound a little like Radiohead but to say that they are a mediocre version is not fair... Then they made Origin Of Simetry wish is very different from Radiohead in my opinion. They even used to mention Radiohead in early interviews I guess, but a lot of people mentioned so much that they are a copy, that they started to get uncomfortable.
Nowadays I don't think they are even close to Radiohead... Not better and not worse, just different.

well their lead singers do sound rather similar, but radiohead is towering waaaaaayyy above muse.

muse does have some good songs, though. i'd only wish they would change their sound a bit once in a while.

agreed they can get tiring


They make good music...but I can get sick of their "Apocalyptic ...End of the world"

......bullshit thats in most of their songs


thats why I love "Showbiz"
its Muse not doing overblown rock songs about the end of the world
and bringing down governments

Well, to be fair, I haven't really listened to a lot of Muse, just the stuff on the radio and tv really.

Maybe if someone would hook me up, I'd give them a fair chance.

I used to find Muse tiring in the long run even after I started to like them. But I gotta say, seeing them live totally changed that; I can listen to them for hours now, I haven't felt this way about any band since I fell in love with U2 back in 2000.

"Microcuts" is probably the only Muse song I still absolutely cannot stand. It's just one long excruciating high-pitched wankathon,

Don't think they have much in common with Radiohead these days; vocal resemblance maybe. Even then it's pretty superficial IMO; Thom Yorke goes for a more subtle approach whereas Matt mostly goes for wall-to-wall histrionics. Likewise, I think it's pretty pointless to compare their music since they aim for different things. Muse will probably never write something as affecting and subtle as 'Fake Plastic Trees', but then Radiohead never wrote a song that makes me want to jump on a horse and ride across the plains of Mars,
