I like them and im nearly 50! I dont buy albums anymore - have'nt for some 10 years - although i like all i have heard of them and always make a beeline to watch any TV show or televised concert or festival they appear on.

Dont know if anyone has said this but i think they would be perfect to do a Bond Theme.

I think they are incredible. One of my top 3 favourite bands.

Although 2nd Law was disappointing, with a couple of great songs. All of their other albums are phenominal.

so big thumbs up from me.

I lost interest of Muse after The Resistance and The 2nd Law. Too OTT for me after that.

Black Holes & Revelations has a few good 'uns on there.

Their first 3 albums are good though, Origin of Symmetry being very good in my opinion.

So it's a yay-nay?

Or a yay then nay?

I find their lyrics abysmal, really meaningless.


Really? I think the meaning of most of their songs is pretty clear. Maybe the problem is the opposite - not that their lyrics are meaningless, but that the meaning is so clearly laid out that their songs don't have the ambiguous poetic (meaningless?) quality of a band like Radiohead.


That is a very good point, well made.

I should have italicised the "I" in that statement. You are quite right that their lyrics are not literally meaningless, they just do nothing to move me. I will not deny that I like more 'poetic' lyrics, the meaning of which are not always immediately apparent. I like lyrics that take a while to decrypt; words packed with ambiguity and meaning that enrich me and make me feel; lyrics that, when I make sense of them, hit me in the solar plexus and make me appreciate a song as not just fantastic music, but an intricately textured work of art. I don't get that from Muse at all.

I'm guessing by your username you probably hate them...

Having been to see them at the weekend for the first time, I have to say I thought they were brilliant live - they certainly put on a hell of a show!

A comment from one or two people I know who saw them too possibly sums up a lot of folks recent opinions of them - "even though they were amazing, it was still probably the worst I've seen them" . So probably a band not currently putting out their best music but still great to see.

Ooh, were you at the Emirates on Saturday then?  I was and it was fucking amazing!









I know that people are saying that they've played better but I saw them at Wembley a few years back and for me this was better (probably because I wasn't up in the gods crapping myself because of my vertigo  ).

Jealous of those seeing them in Manchester this weekend!

Aye, we were there! It was a great show, we were high enough up to be classed as 'in the gods' but had a great time all the same.

As someone not used to football stadiums I was surprised to find that it wasn't as big as I'd pictured in my head, so even being almost as far away as possible from the stage, it didn't take away a lot of the experience for me. In my wife & I's post-baby sleep deprived state I'm certainly not sure we could have handled standing!

I was there on the Saturday too!

Muse's latest albums may not reach the heights of Origin or Absolution but their shows make them so worth seeing live. The 2nd Law has some cracking songs though - Panic Station is brilliant.

If anything, I thought this gig was better than when they performed at Wembley back in 2010 simply because it looked they were all having so much fun performing - especially when Bellamy walked through the crowd and came across the man dressed as Spider-Man! And I loved that Time is Running Out and New Born were played back to back, my favourite songs of theirs.

I was abit annoyed at the guy in front of me though - he shazaamed during Bliss - who the f*** does that at a gig, and during one of their most famous songs! And the 10:30 curfew was frustrating because it meant the gig had to start earlier and I prefer when it's dark.

I'm off to see them on Sunday for their free gig in London - only a 30 min set but it should still be worth it.

A yay from me!

I think Muse are the best live act around at the moment. I own all their albums and listen to them regularly, even though I agree with most of you that „The Resistance“ is not that great.

I like electronic music so I don't mind if they flirt with dubstep a little bit on "The 2nd Law". I don't care too much about the Queen influence though...

Kudos to you Brits for choosing Survival as the official song for the Olympic games. Awesome choice! I thought it was hilarious and I'm sure a lot of people thought: "What the...was that???" Their OTT in general is pretty cool.

Ah yes, and I agree that any singer will have problems to compete with Matt's abilities. He is a very talented guy and can hit higher notes than I can.

I can't stand them. MR HQ is a fan and I have to leave the room when he plays them because I want to put my foot through the stereo. Find them wanky and hate the lead singers voice. So not a fan at all.
