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.

toad3000;545024 said: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...?

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'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.

jobn;545764 said: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.

kaybee;546149 said:Just to all the Muse fans who may not know...Muse has a load of quality very early material and B-Sides... most of which can be pulled on youtube.check out:Crying ShameComaTwin (at one time called Balloonatic... both versions have their offerings)Can't Take My Eyes Off YouIn The GrooveEasilyEternally Missed
Sveppi;546339 said:Their B-sides are really good (Can't take my eyes off you is a cover though), you might want to add Futurism, Fury, Spiral Static & Glorious to that list. Then ofcourse there's Hullabaloo and Random 1-8 (some of the tracks are listed).But I don't think the chances of getting b-sides are as good as getting their A-sides, but with HMX you never know
Drenks;546482 said:I would also love to see Knights of Cydonia or Time is Running Out on Rock Band. But Assassin, Map of the Problematic, or Exo-Politics would also all be great. I am just expecting something by Muse soon on RB DLC, I couldn't imagine a reason it isn't there already other than some license issue.
