Showbiz

I found them out this year with their last album, I loved it and so I bought the first. Well, I think they are both great. I like "Time is running out" and "Hysteria" etc... as I like "Muscle Museum" and "Showbiz" etc... Now I wanna buy the second.

So I can't choose! I love both! :)

Their second album... origin Of Symmetry has the best first 2 songs an album could have... it gets a bit crap towards the end but the first 6 songs alone are worth buying it :)

I have all 3 albums plus Hullaballoo and I say old muse. :D

As good as absolution is, it seems more mainstream than their earlier efforts. Time is Running Out is really a nothing song, and while Hysteria and Stockholm Syndrome are decent songs, they lack the sheer energy and intricacy of songs like Microcuts, Showbiz and Muscle Museum, in favour of a catchy chorus and something more suited to radio/MTV play.

That's what I think anyway. :D

Well on the Showbiz album I love (in order)
Sober,
Showbiz,
Muscle Museum,
Uno,
Cave
Fillip


Unintended really grates on me sometimes, I went through a short spell of liking it as its different,
but now I don't like it again





From Origin of Symmetry my faves are (in no order of preference)
New Born,
Bliss,
Hyper Music,
Plug In Baby,
Micro Cuts,
Feeling Good






I have mixed feelings about Absolution.

My faves from it are (in order of preference)
Stockholm Syndrome,
The Small Print,
Hysteria,
Butterflies & Hurricanes,
Time Is Running Out,
Thoughts of a Dieing Atheist

but I think Blackout :yuck: Endlessly, Falling Away With You, and Ruled by Secrecy aren't up to much

Apocalypse Please is a pretty good beginning to the album though IMO



From Hullabaloo I think the live versions of Showbiz and Citizen Erased are excellent, even better than the normal album versions :)

In Your World is a great track, as is Agitated :D






From the B Sides, I like Ashamed, Nature_1, and Yes Please

Hyper Chondriac Music deserves a mention too, as I think it very clever what they did with it,
some people on the official Muse board even reckon that its the best Muse track ever :confused:






Anyway, getting back to the question, I do prefer old Muse :)

although the likes of TSP and Stockholm Syndrome are great tunes IMO

CUG, I hate it when people say Muse are like radiohead... to me they are nothing like them, Muse's songs are way too good to be like Radiohead :howler:

Wrong way round. Radiohead are modern pioneers of rock music. Muse are an OK band. It is like comparing The Beatles with Mike & The Mechanics.
