If you're going to pillage someone else's ideas, then go for broke. Because even if you find yourself crammed between the barriers of creative space, utterly at a loss for ideas, expression, or thought, you'd still have a self-respect buzzing in your ear like a mad angelic insect, putting down the newspaper and taking out a cigar to remind you that, hell, if want to

Overview

If you're going to pillage someone else's ideas, then go for broke. Because even if you find yourself crammed between the barriers of creative space, utterly at a loss for ideas, expression, or thought, you'd still have a self-respect buzzing in your ear like a mad angelic insect, putting down the newspaper and taking out a cigar to remind you that, hell, if want to sound like Radiohead when even Thom Yorke doesn't want to sound like Radiohead, you might as well take it to preposterous, bombastic, over-the-top levels. Add church organs, mental electronics, riffs bouncing off each other like the monolithic screams in 2001: A Space Odyssey, and you'll finally be in position to crack skulls like coconuts and make the world's speakers ooze gooey blood.

If you like melodious classic keyboard and love-ballad beauty brilliantly folded into violent, dark runs, you will love Muse. They combine the polarities of hard and fast with soft and sweet better than almost anyone, without diluting the quality of either.

The more I listen to them, the more I love them. (I can't believe they aren't just huge in the US.) An awesome cd - one of my most favorite Muse songs, "Plug In Baby", is on here. Also, their cover of "Feeling Good" is really great.

It's hard to believe that almost no one here knows about Muse, maybe that's because this album was only available as import last 4 years. OK, i am biased cos i think that they are the best band out there and OOS is their best album. This is a very daring sounding album and there aren't many bands that are similar to Muse in this regard. As for Radiohead, Matt may have similar voice to Thom Yorke and both bands play rock music but that's about it. Muse are louder and much more diverse lyrically and musically, lyrics are less cryptic, and amazing guitar riffs and piano interludes make the songs irresistible. Simply the best.

I started loving Muse in eigth grade(now in 11th) when I heard their hit song "Time is Running Out" on the radio. I absolutely loved it. I don't remember my exact thoughts, but it was deffinetely like nothing I had ever heard before. I then soon after got into "Stockholm Syndrom" and "Hysteria". I downloaded these songs and listened to them one after the other. My freind then lent me both Absolution and Black Holes and Revelations. I immidiately put them on my iPod and they became my favorite albums. Origin of Symmetry is just like those two. I think that it has got to be the greatest one yet. The only way to listen to it is all the way through from beginning to end. ENJOY!

Wow, i had this C.D for my birthuthday, because a fter i heard New Born and Plug in Baby, it had to be mine. The aforementioned songs have the most amazing guitar riffs on them, and the bizarre high-pitched singing which is so curiously irresistable. the rest of the album just bursts with creative ideas and that Matt is a total genius with the keyboard malarkey. who knew such kool rockers could hail from quiet old Devon? get it, u know u want to.

Muse have always had a taste of cutting edge and fine music, this is there 3rd Album, and its as good as its as good as showbiz. The album starts with New Born and Bliss, 2 very good songs with brilliant use of the piano and electric guitar riffs. Other tracks on the album such as the Fantastic Plug in Baby with a faboulus video and superb guitar riffs, and darkshines. Other tracks can become slightly repetitive, Space Dementia is One of my favourite tracks on the album, But the ending is...well slightly starnge, although thats the beauty of Muse. Even if you have never heard of Muse before start here by buying origin of symmetry, you wont be dissapointed. Daniel
