Muse

(1/8) > >>

tangerine:
I'm just wondering what people think about muse.

Personally, I rather like them- though I didn't really care for them until I saw them live at Glastonbury Festival a few years back. I think the lead singer + guitarist- Matt Bellamy is exceptionally talented- and he plays the piano amazingly too. I just think theyre a really creative group and their inspirations from classical music show through. I've heard people call it 'rock music for clever people' haha

anyway, opinions?

Indica:
Yeah - I've just got hold of their latest album (?) Black Holes & Revelations.
The second track 'Starlight' is fantastic. The heavy fuzz bass goes perfect with the light airy feel of the piano.
I tend to think most of the songs sound the same, as his voice is very 'samey' - but it doesn't take away from the range or power he can muster up.

Yeh I definately know what you mean about his voice being quite 'samey' - but I reckon it's more varied on the album 'absolution'  :) Interesting fact: when his throat was examined, it was discovered that he has a woman's vocal chords! Might explain how he can sing high so easily!

Revolution:
Don't  impress me. Heard one song of theirs. My U.K. friends rave about 'em!

An Apple Beatle:
I dig em but I'm from UK..Not a huge fan but their cover of Nina Simones 'Feelin Good' is a great way for anyone new to get a feel of them as a band. They kinda remind me of a cross between Jeff buckley & Radiohead. That can't be a bad thing and they are all accpmplished musicians.
