I first heard Muse when I went to see High Tension. After hearing New Born I had to buy their cd's. I would compare the lead singer of Muse to Freddie Mercury. His voice is so powerful. The band also sounds just as good live as they do on their cd.

I had a really good laugh when reading a comment on a Muse music video on YouTube. The poster said that My Chemical Romance is better than Muse! What a fucking joke! Laughing

That's the same thing I tell people. I understand the Thom Yorke comparisons he always gets, but the band, as a whole, is much more reminiscent of Queen. Every time I hear 'Knights of Cydonia,' my head goes to two places- 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,' and the theme to 'Flash Gordon.'

Seconded. I might even argue they're even better live. As a lot of people have said, before me: that's a whole hell of a lot of noise for a three piece band to be able to replicate, night after night.

I first saw them when I caught the live broadcast of Live8. I'd heard of them, but never actually heard them. A few months later, I caught the video for 'Stockholm Syndrome,' and I was sold.

If they're not already the biggest band in the world (which they, arguably, are), I'd give them one more album before they get the belt. I can't think of a single other mainstream (or, really, otherwise) band who are anywhere near their level in terms of innovation, consistency, and sheer bombast. Name me one other outfit whose songs so perfectly fit the tone of the new millenium (all about conspiracy theories, deep space, and the apocalypse).

Muse are probably the best band in the world. And without doubt the best live band. It's nearly impossibly to believe that that much music can come out of three people.

The HULLABALOO live DVD is the best concert DVD there is. Every single song sound far better than it does on the record.

Matthew Bellamy is a freak. He can sing like Jeff Buckley, play guitar like Hendrix and piano like Rachmaninov.

And Dom and Chris are the tightest, most creative rhythm section in rock.

I cannot stand most of the current bands here in the states. They all sound the same. They lack talent, creativity, heart and soul. The music industry is so fucking flooded with worthless bands with stupid names that will not be remembered for anything 10 or 20 years from now. And rap.....that shouldn't even be catagorized as music.

It's been that way for years.

... and don't talk shit about rap. There're as many good and bad acts in hip hop as in rock. It's all about who's getting airplay, and that's usually the lowest common denominator, in any genre.

Just got back.

Again, THIS IS THE BEST FUCKING BAND TODAY. Period.

If this concert doesn't kick your ass three ways to Valhalla, you're either not human or you're fucking lame. That's fucking law.

They are amazing live! I saw them in Detroit awhile back. They seem to be very big with the horror crowd as well. Not only for Haute Tension, but their music was also featured on the "28 Weeks Later" trailer and now "30 Days of Night"...I think they were both from their "Absolution" album.
