Muse is a great band from Britain, heres why:
- They have accessible music but its not too accessible
- They are noted for their outstanding live performances
- They are obviously talented and Matt Bellamy has never had a music lesson in his life
- Their performance at Glastonbury is what made them popular in Britain (they are good, thats what made them mainstream)
- Their two great albums Origin Of Symmetry and Absolution flirt with the line of dramatic-ness and lameness giving them an emotional intensity
- This intensity gives them soul and passion
- Their songs are not too cryptic but some have an air secrecy
- The music they play is not too complex and their songs can be catchy but it is not incredibly easy to play their music
- Matt Bellamy is awesome
- They are not into stupid optimism but they are definitely not depressed
Reasons to hate:
- So dramatic they come over as lame (not to me)
- They are Radiohead copycats (seriously, after Showbiz their music sounds nothing like Radiohead, if it ever did)
- Being a dumbass (there are plenty in the world)
- Not liking the vocals ... some might consider Origin Of Symmetry abrasive to the ears (at least he doesnt whine like Thom Yorke, and its not really very bad)
- Recently they have been singing about the government (OK this is a little lame, I still love them)
- Dont like heavy music at all (it might be a valid excuse)
As you can see the majority of people should like Muse, so listen to them.
Person 1: Have you heard of Muse? They are awesome.
Person 2: Yeah they are my favorite band; I love so many of their songs: Plug In Baby, Bliss, New Born, Feeling Good, Muscle Museum, Time Is Running Out, Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome, The Small Print, Endlessly, City Of Delusion, Map Of The Problematique, Knights Of Cydonia
Person 1: Yeah! We should see them live! I want to hear them play Stockholm Syndrome so badly!
