Need i say more? Most B-side albums tend to fall by the way side due to the over playing of A-side album tracks. Hullaballo, be it slightly inferior to Showbiz, is an awesome album which culminates all of Muses achievements to date. The 2nd CD, which is a gig live from the 'la Zenith' in Paris is brilliant to listen to no matter what mood you were in when you pressed play. I loved origin of Symmetry and Showbiz and this has rounded of my collection to the band which is the future of intelligent gutair music.

Sure, it's not as well polished or orderly as their two previous releases, but it's a b-sides and live album, so what do you expect. The live component is probably better enjoyed on the DVD version, just so you can bask in the glory of Matt's rock moves, but it still reflects that Muse are one of the most rocking live acts going around. It is perhaps disappointing that the songs are not experimented with to any great extent, and other than some big rock finishes and guitar/piano solo improvisations, but one just has to marvel at the fact that Matt can sing Micro Cuts at the start of the gig (it's about two octaves out of my vocal range) and then continue with the vocal power. Out of the three new tracks, Dead Star and Agitated are very gnarly loud songs with heaps of distortion (much like Hyper Music or the non-piano section of Cave), whereas In Your World is a surprisingly happy-sounding song from the guys. The b-sides album is much better than I had expected. The first track, Forced In, and track 9, The Gallery, are very odd and are esque of the way in which Pink Floyd sat on stage and then tried to make as many different noises come out of the instruments as humanly possible - they are quite trippy. The middle track, Map of Your Head, is quite unusually light and bouncy, and sees Matt playing quite a cool acoustic guitar riff. The closing track, Hyper Chondriac Music, is vastly different to the original Hyper Music, with each long vocal note quite painstakingly melancholy, but nevertheless extremely powerful. And there is, of course, the usual mix of quality loud and quiet songs that we have come to expect. The amount of weird and wonderful stuff that Matt Bellamy writes for this band is making it constantly more and more interesting to be a Muse fan. Hopefully he keeps producing the epics.
