Muse

Anyone else here a fan? Absolution is the first album that I've ever fallen in love with after the first listen, and I still love it 5 years later. Black Holes and Revelations was pretty good, but I've got to say, I'm not sure if I'm feelin what I've heard so far of Resistance. United States of Eurasia and Uprising can be heard in their entirety on youtube, and to be honest neither is all that great (although Uprising is definitley the better of the two songs.) 30 second clips of all the songs can be heard on Itunes, and as of now all I can say is yuck. Maybe the album will grow on me, but as of right now I'm disappointed.

    I enjoyed their live album at Wimbley stadium. I'm curious as to what their new album will sound like whenever it gets released.

    To put it bluntly, you really don't get to decide how the thread turns out. Sorry dude, that's just how it goes.

    I've only heard Uprising and I wasn't really a fan of it. I haven't heard any of the others, so I might have to check them out.

    threads are like children, where the quality of the OP determines how well your offspring will survive. make a good one, and it can grow up big and strong! make a poor one and before you turn around it's getting fucked in a gas station bathroom for heroin

    Man, United States of Eurasia sounds a lot like Queen. I like it, though. Uprising was alright. That being said, I like Muse a lot. I was turned onto them when Take a Bow was used in a Watchmen trailer. I couldn't stop listening to that and Knights of Cydonia. I like the songs that have a more 'epic' feel to them like those. I'm not sure what else this new album has in store, but I'll withhold judgment until I can hear it all and more than once. It usually takes me a few listens to like anything, really.

    I've heard that and I really don't get the comparison, aside from Matt and Thom's voices sounding similar. Musically, they sound completely different to me.

    I've heard that too, and I don't hear it at all. Voices are what I key in on the most, and they sound very different, and Muse seems to be noticeably harder rock, and less electronic, than Radiohead.

    awesome lyrics courtesy of muse

    The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
    The transmissions will resume
    They'll try to push drugs
    Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
    We will never see the truth around

    Another promise, another scene, another
    A package not to keep us trapped in greed
    With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
    And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    Interchanging mind control
    Come let the revolution take it's toll if you could
    Flick the switch and open your third eye, you'd see that
    We should never be afraid to die

    Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
    The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
    Their time is coming to an end
    We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    I can't call myself a Muse fan, because I've listened to only about one and a half albums and I only liked about 1/4 of the songs I've heard by them, but I really enjoy that 1/4.

    Also, Dru, thanks for sharing the animation, it's adorable. How did you stumble upon it?

    The lead singer of Muse is a 9/11 truther.

    I'm not surprised Glenn Beck is a fan.
