    OK. I'm a convert. I didn't pay these guys any heed 'til I saw the KoC video in a bar the other night. Couldn't really hear the music since every one was talking but WOW! The vid was amazing. One of the best I've ever seen. Maybe second only to Beastie Boys "Sabotage". Checked out the music on iTunes when I got home and drunkenly downloaded 3 albums. These guys are amazing!

    I'm dying to play the drum track to "Map of the Problematique"


    That video is in my opinion the best video ever!
    Its funny!
    It fits the song!
    And it uses a bunch of my favorite shows and movies

    The "what are we doing?" was referring to Merry and Pippin's bewilderment as to thier destination in the movie after they decide to join Frodo and the gang.

    Welcome to the cult . . . er, club! The vid for KoC is what really sealed the deal for me as well. I loved Muse before that but the fact that they made a video encompassing kung fu, cowboys, aliens, and robots just confirmed it for me.

    I came across a music critic's (the enemy!) review of HAARP. It's fairly obvious that he's not a Muse fan but it's a good read, for no other reason than to find humor in seeing him try desperately to find something wrong with the album. Here's a few of my favorite quotes:

    "Muse make superhero music, and if you're going to offer declarations like "Tonight we can truly say/ Together we're invincible," there are few settings more appropriately comic-book than the one for this CD/DVD set: a twice-over sold-out Wembley Stadium."

    "Take a Bow is the kind of song that could level an arena, and as the closer of H.A.A.R.P., this proves to be true."

    LOL:
    "And that's f*cking important. I mean, we can't all start with Radiohead."

    and this:

    "Muse are more effective for implying the give and take-- they may just be following in the path of the Cure, the Doors, Rush, Pink Floyd, or even Led Zeppelin"

    AMEN!!

    I just find this so cool. I recently got hooked on Muse, got their entire discography, then showed it to all of my friends, who liked it, and so on. It's a butterfly effect!

    I don't know why exactly since their sounds are very different but a lot of Muse's stuff puts me in mind of Queen at their most bombastically operatic.

    I think it's almost safe to say HAARP changed my life.
    The performances of New Born and Invincible were my favorites, I think. I'd seen the Invincible performance in saltine-vision, but putting it on an actual TV with decent audio makes it positively astounding.
    They're true geniuses. And I love the stuff they did after New Born.
    The only thing that can top that is actually going to a Muse concert.

    Ah, I'd heard the line "Always loveably lame, have managed to take a turn for the lamer," but not the rest of it.
    I'm curious as to how he knew Muse's wardrobe without seeing them.

    Also, my Muse 3-pack:
    New Born
    Stockholm Syndrome
    Invincible
    (It was really hard to take Plug in Baby off that list. Really.)

    6-pack:
    Time is Running Out
    Stockholm Syndrome
    Invincible
    Knights of Cydonia
    New Born
    Plug in Baby.
    (If both packs were to be released, I'd have New Born, Stockholm Syndrome, and Invincible replaced with Citizen Erased, Shrinking Universe, and The Small Print.)

    Album: Black Holes and Revelations.

    Yeah, that review was terrible, I've actually read it before. but if you check out the other reviews cited on Wikipedia, or even the Metacritic listing (http://www.metacritic.com/music/artists/muse/blackholesandrevelations?q=muse)
    , it's done pretty well for itself. Great album, but I guess not for everyone...?

    Well Q Magazine put Knights of Cydonia on thier list of top 20 guitar solos of all time.

    Now I'll have one left to relish after using one to rid my mouth of the taste of dinner. Sweet! :]

    If you go to Wikipedia and look below the album picture at the list of ratings, Pitchfork is the only one below the equivalent of 4/5 stars. Ha.
    Maybe not good in everyone's eyes, but hey, nothing can be loved by everyone.

    Pitchfork is a bunch of pompous asses who only give indie rock and electronica and favorable reviews. Now don't get me wrong, I really love indie rock (especially Bloc Party), but if that's all you like then there's something wrong with you. I like this part of the KoC review:

    [quote]The song opens with stampeding stallions and laser blips before moving into a galloping 6/8 drumbeat slathered in mariachi trumpets."

    One, all of KoC is in 4/4 (though you could argue 12/8 for the triplet part, I guess), and two, it's not slathered in trumpets, there's only one part of it that's got trumpets in it. And how is the end "a nauseating barrel-rolling guitar solo, possibly ripped from the soundtrack to a bad teen movie involving a stolen jet fighter." That makes no sense. That end solo rocks. It's not nauseating. I'm not even going to waste my time proving this jackass wrong. Really.

    I agree whole-heartedly. I've read a few of their reviews before and they are pompous music elitists at their worst. They've got their indie heads so far up their bums that they don't know what real music sounds like, it's all intestinal echoes to them. The guy that reviewed BH&R is of that sad, sad group of people that can't get past the fact that Matt's voice is similar to Thom Yorke's.

    I guess the fact that the album went Double Platinum, won countless awards, and got 9/10 from Rolling Stone must have slipped his mind.

    Chances are he would have rated it LOWER if it had won the Mercury award that the Arctic Monkeys edged Muse out for.

    Learning from what i read today ill never trust another music review from that website. It just puts down everything and try's to look for every little thing that they think is wrong.

    Muse would be awesome. Probably the only one of my favorite bands that will ever actually make it onto Rock Band.
