Dug out Absolution and OOS, fantastic!!!
They're okay in a BIG POMPOUS SILLY way. Which is as good a way as any really.
They are ACE. Fact. You are wrong Gus(?)
an indie Queensrhych (sp?). Meh. But if they make you happy...erm, ah, then I'm happy for you!
Saw their LA show. Twas OK, but I wished I'd had earplugs for all them high notes and falsettos.
that didn't work
let it be known: Muse rule
even though they have some alright songs, i cant listen to them mor ethan once
is that a bad thing?
get bored of them really easily but they are great in an epic kinda way (read: pompous lol). I do think that Matt Bellamy is rather talented though.
is my favourite description ever. i'm recatogorising my media library genres...
'pompous lol' or just 'pompous'? Coz 'pompous lol' just sounds silly.
pompous doesn't describe them. it misses the silly fun bit. Pompous LOL is perfect.
library genres? I can never be bothered with that - way too much effort, and too confusing.
this is the first i've ever changed...
a singles band really aren't they though. I find their albums hard to get through because of the overblown filler stuff. I'd definitely like to see them live though.
But they're really boring live.
i've listened to both of these albums tonite too - not listened to OOS for ages, but it's still got some absolute beasts of songs...
...but there is something fundamentally silly about them. As there is about any band that takes itself seriously.
watching them in interviews, they're always giggling and prodding each other. they're glastonbury set was exceptionally good, i'm not sure if they'll ever top it. far, far better live than on record.
I'm an idiot. Fact.
whoever said they are a singles band, because they are. Their singles are amazing where as alot of the albums are filler.
Welsh bands that want to be American at the best of times, so when they've got a vocalist like Matt Bellamy, I really don't like them.
is the worst description of muse I reckon i'll ever hear. I like them a bit but lost absolution.
The whole production of the record is American. The voice isn't. The voice is just nails on a blackboard.
Scratchy guitars etc. Crap.
he sings i nthe most engish of accents ever, quite posh u know haha
first album - okay
second album - crap
third album - good
too much filler on all of them.
also, for all the epic drama of the songs they are completely soulless.
but when they get going on there harder hitting tracks, they are far far better. shame this doesnt happen much.
I thought that was a great song!
They have ambition. Not enough bands do. I can't stand the celebration of mediocrity amongst certain prominent bands. If you're going to fail, at least fail spectacularly. Not that they fail for me.
half the time it doesn't work but at least they're constantly trying to move on and not affraid of it the changes failing.
Coincidently, I went back to Absolution as well the other day, and it reminded me of how much I adored it. Granted, I didn't get as much enjoyment out of it just now but I can still admire it because it's actually really good still.
You like the white stripes.
but they are the most self indulgent band ever!
3 10/10 reviews, and not one review under 8/10!
ha ha.. i really dislike them, they just don't evoke any emotion. apart from annoying me.
i saw them live though, and they do put on a great live show and they've got thousands of fans.. but i just don't like them.
