...I like that song...

Meh. I say I've heard much worse lyrics over the years. Besides, if you look at the lyrics in the context of the album themes (like the aforementioned sci-fi/war movie thing, or the fanatical "THE END IS NEAR!" concept of Absolution), I expect them to be a bit cheesy and overdramatic and goofy. But that's just me .

Thanks for sharing that video, U2Fan101-I particularly loved the footage they used for the final part of the song. That worked perfectly. Very cool.

By the way, those of you who have Fuse, Thursday's episode of "Later...with Jools Holland" will have Muse as one of its guests. The show'll be on at 1 pm and 5 pm eastern for anyone who's interested in watching it.

you know xavi, I find a lot of what you (and a couple of others) say funny and interesting most times (I enjoy a lot really).. And helpful too in getting info re: RH...

But I have to say you love to come in and bash other bands except for RH. Everyone is entittled to their opinions no doubt but if you don't like a band then why not sidestep that thread for something else.. just a thought..

cont'd

I know you say alot in jest, fun and not to be taken seriously which I really don't. I guess I get a little annoyed... Truly, no offense to you or anyone else for that matter. I just wanted to vent I guess. I don't mean to come off as sensitive about it really.

I think Muse may be over the top, or sensational at times with their lyrics but they are one of the few bands who can be over the top and sensational without sounding cheesy in my opinion.

If a band can do it right without sounding lame-o, then I say more power to them. I happen to like Muse's lyrics a lot and have yet to find a song I don't like. Grand, powerful music and sensational lyrics does not equate to bad music. If it's done right it equals great music, and Muse does it right.

Of course this is just my opinion.

I like Muse because they're over the top. The lyrics are just to give the guitar something to play over, at least in my opinion.

They have fucking strobe lights and balloons filled with confetti because they can, and they rock the fuck out live because they're so excessive about using as little restraint as possible.

LOL, exactly. They're serious about the music in the sense that they want to make it sound as good as they possibly can, they put a lot of care into the creation of their songs. But they also know they're over the top, they know they're bombastic, and they're fine with that . One reason why I love a song (and video) like "Knights Of Cydonia"-they sound like they had fun making that one (after all, how serious are you if you come up with a title like that?), and I like that. It's a refreshing change of pace in modern music. And the fact that they're so "no holds barred" makes me curious to see what crazy ideas they'll come up with next-expect the unexpected.

Agreed on your post, too, U2Fan101.

Angela

I gave them a listen and they're pretty OK. I usually like over the top though. I think I'd enjoy seeing them live.

Couldn't have said it better if I'd tried, so I won't

Hey, U2Fanatic4Ever ...

Is that Hullabaloo CD worth getting?
