3.0 goodDavey Boy STAFF | May 3rd 09

Muse have always been ambitious and that fits right in with releasing (if only in Japan) an 8 track EP of B-Sides and live cuts after only one LP. Individually, most of these songs could have slotted in as album tracks on 'Showbiz', but as a whole they only result in a good solid package and nothing more. Only for diehard fans of the band, Muse's usual traits are on show here; The tempo-switching 'Host', the hooky guitar riffs of 'Coma' and the distorted vocals of 'Agitated'. Yet, it is the slower and haunting near-instrumental of 'Forced In' which stands out alongside the live version of the under-rated 'Filip'.

4.0 excellentRoss Delany | July 13th 07

Whilst Random 1-8 is not an EP for the casual Muse listener, it still easily contains some of their best work. With songs like Forced In and Agitated showing the less radio-friendly side of their talents and songs like Coma showing the mix of good hooks and a slight poppiness that would serve them in good stead. As already said, not a CD for the casual listener, but for Muse fans old and new, this is a good purchase.

4.0 excellentJosh Taylor | January 3rd 07

While Muse's bigger hits maybe appealing to more people, sometimes it's nice to see the more experimental side of Muse and this is a great way to do that. It holds many of their earlier recordings and while they maybe less radio-friendly they display Muse's musical progession fantastically and show how they would go on to refine their techniques and go on to release 4 great albums.
