^ Your avatar pretty much sums up my reaction to that statement

I would have thought the MCR crowd and the Muse crowd would have been very different. I don't really see many of them appreciating Muse for their musicianship, but just for 'a couple of catchy songs'.

MUSE>MCR 4 LYFE!

Seriously though, MCR don't put in half as much effort into thier music as Muse do, and it's David Vs Goliath in terms of instrumental ability. MCR write songs so they can be rich and famous and give scene kids something to wank over and thats fine, whatever floats thier boat. But I think calling Muse fans stupid is unjust.

Seriously I'd take Muse over MCR any day of the week, but you that's not to say MCR don't put any effort into their music. They're just making music which appeals to them and their fanbase. In fact MCR's new album was fairly ambitious musically.

Muse are good musicians and write great songs, some people talk about them like they're gods or something though.

I saw some live footage of these guys off YouTube. I think the song was Stockholm Syndrome, and I have to say I was impressed, as they sure did play it well. I am not a fan of these guys, but it would seem they are excellent live. I bought the album the song is on "Absolution" and I don't like it much at all. I was hoping to like it after buying Showbiz and being dissapointed with the exception of a few songs.

Is the new one really a final break from their ripoff of Radiohead?

Clunge
01-02-2007, 01:59 PM
Ergh, only their first album sounds at all Radiohead influenced, and only very little at that.

/pet peeve.

Each to their own though, I absolutely love Absolution, and Black Holes And Revelations (their new album) is the most varied body of work they've produced so far so I'd definitely take a listen.

If you really want to hear the true Muse sound, get the album Origin Of Symmetry - it's regarded as their most complete/best album so far.

DBoons Ghost
01-02-2007, 02:07 PM
Sorry to touch on a nerve, but their second one sounds more like Radiohead then their first. I listened to it start to finish over a friend's house with him telling me how much they don't sound like Radiohead only to end up pointing out every reason why they do.

My only real question is the new one worth buying? Let's forget I mentioned Radiohead at all. Assuming I don't like all of Showbiz and only some of Absolution.

I gotta say though that YouTube video is phenomonal. Bellamy's got an interesting style of making noise, but Wolstenholme's steady play is what made me like it.

Origin of symmetry, its the best, and a bit of a go between for them to albums.

DBoons Ghost
01-02-2007, 02:23 PM
Maybe I'll give it another listen.

I will buy the new one regardless. I dig these guys, but I am unsure of Bellamy's fits of falsetto singing. I dunno. I like when people sing with emotion, but I don't always hear it that way. It makes me cring with thoughts of Coheed and Cambria, which is just awful.

Clunge
01-02-2007, 02:25 PM
Well, yes, the new album is definitely worth buying from my point of view but if you're not really a massive fan of Showbiz or Absolution, you're probably not going to enjoy Black Holes And Revelations as much as you might because it is still sounds essentially, like classic Muse.

But yes, go out and get it, take a listen and report back :thumb:.

And take into account Muse sound a million times better live than in the studio - I don't really listen to the studio tracks at all, simply because of the very flat production of Rich Costey's on their latest two albums.

What reasons do they sound like Radiohead? Usually dark music.. singer uses falsetto? Experimental? What else? Theres a lot of bands under that broad umbrella.

There are a lot of bands under that umbrella, but none so closely related as Muse and Radiohead. The comparisons are fairly non existent as both bands matured, but there were periods in which they sounded fairly similar. In my opinion, Thom Yorke and Bellamy both benefited from Buckley's commercial acceptance of falsettos when used properly and with great emotion. Radiohead's textured melodies were something never commercially accepted and I think they paved the way for a band like Muse to be accepted. Bellamy uses a lot more MIDI and sequences more then I'd like but I am not one to play tit for tat. I am sure given the proper criteria any band can be compared in this way. Muse is a more aggresive Radiohead for all intents and purposes, but these days both bands have defined themselves in their own categories. Layering sequenced melodies is nothing new to music, but the way they both do it is truly similar. I cannot say Muse ripped off anyone, but to deny they are similar in that regard is to claim fanboism on both sides.

It's all good in the end. I like both bands in their own rights.

DBoons Ghost

Well, my opinion is merely that. Don't take it personal. Maybe fanboi was the wrong term.

I like both bands. Like I said, given enough criteria, one can find similarities in a ton of bands.

Duman
01-03-2007, 09:52 AM
Nah it wasn't meant in an angry way, I just don't really see any similarities (apart from the vocals) between Radiohead's music since The Bends and Muse's discography.

The 3 most recent Radiohead albums aren't worth explaining, OK Computer had some songs that were a little Muse-y I suppose and the first two were a bit more guitarry so you could say that's where Muse got the rough edge from.

And I actually am quite a fanboy of both bands :D

mutant!
01-03-2007, 09:56 AM
Electioneering could have been Muse.

Cave could have been Radiohead.

There are more examples which I believe make for sufficient grounds to call the bands similar.

IMO Muse is like a teenage Radiohead that discovered RATM.

To be honest, I don't even find Matt's and Thom's voices to be very similar other than they both use falsetto, and TONS of artists use falsetto these days, come on, all those bands influenced by Buckley > Radiohead > Muse.

I agree that there is a common heritage musically between Radiohead and Muse but I think the bands are sufficiantly different to not warrant a lot of the comparisons they get. To be quite honest, I think a band like Coldplay is trying to be Radiohead, and Muse are simply trying to be themselves.

Muse have a lot of musical heritage that seperates them from Radiohead, ie: Their heavier rock/metal influences, and the classical/operatic stuff. Also, they're more overblown than Radiohead ever were, especially considering Radiohead went all minimalistic. Other bands could drawn bigger comparisons with Radiohead in my opinion.

Muse's latest album sounds NOTHING like anything Radiohead has ever done, and most Muse songs on the past three albums don't either.

To me, a lot of their older stuff sounds similar to Radiohead. I honestly can't believe most people who says they can't find at least a TINY hint of Radiohead in Muse, but I think the reason they are so widely compared is simply because of how big of an influence Radiohead is to Muse.

I think Matt's voice has sounded mature since OoS, it sounds a little immature on Showbiz in places. His voice sounds really mature on the latest album especially, I don't get how his voice sounds like some kind of younger Yorke.

And.. I do see a tiny hint of Radiohead in Muse. I see about as much Radiohead as I see Rage Against the Machine in the riffs on OoS, or System of a Down in assassin, or various classical piano players in various piano based pieces, or Nancy Sinatra in Hoodoo, or Spagetti Western in KoC.

My point is, theres about a hundred different artists who've influenced them, and the only time it comes across as negative is with the Radiohead simularities people seem to want to find, which to be honest are mostly minimal, especially in the last 6 years or so.

Fresh gossip from Muselive. The studio was Blink, who are the leading concert film company so this looks pretty solidly grounded.

In other news, BH&R to be re-released in Japan with a bonus DVD, currently known to feature the music vids for SMBH, Starlight and KoC, as well as live footage from Readind and the Summersonic festical in Japan, as well as the SMBH making of footage.

Cool - go and get 'Origin Of Symmetry' - that album has some amazing bass and is probably Muse's best album.

Second-top of the bill below Tool, hence the shorter set. Still, pretty cool short set, good to see Newborn, Plug In Baby and Take A Bow getting a look in.

Oh my life! Tool AND Muse, shame it was in Australia; although I think seeing those together in the same day/night would call for drastic measures. And for a possible debate, Tool > Muse :thumb:

New Born FTW! Man that was awesome at the ONLY (:mad: ) time I saw them live ... although that is my favourite Muse song so it may be a bit biased. Infact, what was the song that got you all into Muse?

It is quite suprising that New Born is still my favourite song considering it being the first I heard ... with most bands I drift away from the song that got me into them in the first place. Such as Money by Floyd and Blackest Eyes by Porcupine Tree, oh and also The Widow by The Mars Volta.

Hysteria got me into Muse because that's when I was discovering my love of good bass, and it has an amazing bass line. I listened to it frequently after that because my best friend loved them and always played them in her car. The rest I just kind of gradually discovered on my own as I listened to them more and more.

It's really from a personal point of view, I caught onto Muse when I was about 12, just after OOS times so I missed out on my opportunity to see them at a university and also missed out on tickets for the one-off Shephard's Bush gig - I'd just love to see them in a tiny venue rather than the three large venues I've seen them in.

Did anyone see them on Live From Abbey Road the other night?

They where prettay darn good. Map of the problematique annoyed me. Why do they insist on playing on these 3 song things?

Chris' live starlight tone sounded like fart, as usual.

Worst Muse song?

- Invincible
- Feeling Good
- Please, Please...
- Jimmy Kane
- Sing For Absolution
- Starlight

I know a couple are covers, but hey.

I adore Feeling Good and Please Please.

Invincible is a good single.

Starlight is a great song too, Jimmy Kane is pretty rubbish, and Sing for Absolution never did it for me.

Live starlight bass tone is poo! It's ace on the album but it just sounds tacy and cheap live. You would've thought that with his veritble bounty of quality effects pedals he could make sound better.

It did sound tight, I just don't know why they play it everytime they play 3 song sets on TV (Jools Holland etc). It seems they could've played a whole number of songs/single from the new album but don't. Thats what annoys me most.

Watching live videos, his tone doesn't sound bad at all.

Chris' tone is way better than Matt's nowadays, Matt's guitars sounded brutal on the Absolution tour, they sound utterly horrific now.

For example, listen to New Born at Glastonbury 2004 and then the one from Reading 2007.

Case closed.

Festival's aren't really much to go on, bands often have poor sound at Festivals due to the fact their given 15 minutes to set up rather than the hour or two they can take on a normal tour.

Well put it this way, I've seen them twice on the BH&R tour and once on the Absolution tour so I'm in a reasonable position to pass judgement ;).

Okay :p

I only got to see 'em on the BH tour.

Absolution live bass = ace.
Why? because he used Pedullas, none of this Fender/Ric shíte

Clunge

:o!

Fenders and Ricks are awesome! - But just not quite as good as the Pedullas...

Polyamarous

Rickenbackers are poo, look poo(although subjective) and have a very narrow array of tones, none of which are very good.

Fender's can be good (very versaitle), but Jazz Basses, especially passive ones-stock pickups, don't handle effects as well as, say, Pedullas (active, Bartolini pickups.)


Could always be worse though.

I've got to disagree about the Ricks, they look and sound immense!

Jazz Basses are solid and do a good job (I've got one and it was by far the best out of the price range I looked at) but I do agree, moving to Fender and Rickenbacker does seem a step backwards from the Pedullas...

Muse were extremely well received here at BDO recently. they must think we are their second home. Huge audience for the group here (probably not news to you though).

I am digging assassin atm and I think Starlight is an awesome song.... Knights of Cydonia for there best song \m/

Assassin is easily one of my fave Muse songs, I can upload you the re-recorded/remixed version if you want it? - It is waaaaaaaaay better, I won't go into its history now, that's a story for another time :D.

Quick question though... have you heard their earlier albums, pre-BH&R? (just wondering because you only mentioned BH&R tracks ;)).

Yeah of course lol, I am a drummer and I love the drums in Muscle Museum which is off Showbiz... and I like Sunburn with the piano and up-beat drums.... lol

Yay, we mess around with a tonne of Muse stuff in practice, songs liek Uno are just so easy to play but amazingly good fun :D.

Bass.

And fortunatly, Chris' basslines aren't too challenging so that makes things even better.

Hmmm, I would disagree, but then again, I'm not a very good bassist, so maybe that's why.

His basslines need more stamina than anything, keeping New Born up without stopping is damn difficult.

For bass its pretty tricky isn't it? No slacking, fingers must kill after a bit.

I pretty much have the main beat down in Knights of Cydonia... fairly easy, but everything is when you understand it...
