    MUSE

    Well, this trio has been around for awhile now and I will presume that people who have heard of them will love them (unless you are an enemy to me D:<) and people who haven't heard of them literally haven't ever heard of them.

    They have 5 albums out and roughly 85 songs in total.

    My favorite song from them is Knights of Cydonia. The music video is pretty weird.....cowboys and lazers?

    Meh, I never thought any music videos at all were supposed to make sense. :p


    For all those who happen to view this thread, which is your favorite album?
    (And if you've never heard Muse before, you can listen in at www.muse.mu to see if you like them.)

    Showbiz, Origin of Symmetry, or Absolution for sure. BH&R was crazy amazing, but not quite there. Hullabaloo wasn't supposed to be near as outstanding as their others, but some of my favorites still come off of it. I've listened to every album 48 times, BH&R 58, but Hullabaloo falling short at 28 (don't ask me what's up with the 8's).

    He has 5 album pictures up there, lists of all their songs, links to all their lyrics...take an educated guess.

    BH&R is good, but not the best. Definitely more "mainstream" stuff with songs like Starlight and Invincible. Not that that's bad, just not their best.

    It doesn't need to be declared, it's fact. If a Greatest Hits CD is released, I'll snatch that sucker up faster than a cheetah on a zebra.

    KOC is not that great (compared to Muse's other works; in itself, it's a great song, but it holds no comparison to any of the other songs I put in my "Favorite Song By Muse" list in the Muse Thread).

    Your taste phails dramatically. I mean come on Snooker > Tennis.

    I personally love KOC

    Knights of Cyndonia is nothing compared to everything else. Time is Running Out, Hysteria and Plug in Baby are a thousand times better.

    My aunty has signed CD's somewhere, all she brought me back was a t-shirt, ahah.

    That is pretty outstanding. Muse became one of my favorite bands several years back after someone on a forum recommended them for fans of Radiohead. Though I think they've created their own, very unique variant of the alt-guitar-synth-layered-Radiohead-ish sound.

    I've passed on the recommendation to friends and they've all been happy I did - pretty much near-instant fans. Origin of Symmetry is likely in my Top 20 of all time. :yesnod:

    OoS is definitely an incredible album. I also think their 1st album, Showbiz is incredible just because of the fact it was there 1st...and even though their sound has stayed mostly the same, you can hear how the band has matured. Absolution is crazy awesome too.

    On the topic of similarities between Radiohead and Muse, I really don't understand it. The only characteristics I find similar is that both bands use falsetto vocalists. The guitar and drums both sound way different to me. While Muse is ready to rock out and go wild, Radiohead stays very conservative and soft. Also, even though both singers use the same style, their voices still sound totally different to me.
