Jane's Addiction ~ ...Then She Did

It's amazing what these guys could do when they put their minds to it. A very tragic, sad and moving song. They were something truly eclectic and special in their time.

Such a pity repeated comebacks, reunions and revivals have cheapened their legacy.

I'm loving Muse, The Killers and Pomplamoose (I love the Youtube videosongs) right now.

But I listen to everything from Sinatra to Zac Brown Band to Emery.

Love me some Maynard Ferguson too.
OK Muse fans. I know you're out there. How about:
Muse – Time is running out
Then I'm not normally into punk, but this one I like (especially the first couple of minutes):
Refused – New noise

At the moment I'm just shuffling through every song my iTunes claims I haven't listened to. The last five tracks:

Ed Harcourt - Ghost Writer
Mount Eerie - Goodbye Hope
The Posies - Friendship of the Future
Tim Hecker - Palimpsest I (well, those 36 seconds of instrumental sounds hardly qualify as a song, but you know...)
Liz Phair - Gunshy

Interesting, huh?
 
I'm with ACF, for once. Muse are horrible.

Matt Bellamy seems to think he's Jimmy Page, Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley rolled into one. He is drunk on his own glory. "THIS GUITAR NEEDS MORE PITCHSHIFT! THIS CHORUS NEEDS MORE FALSETTO!!!"

Sometimes, less is more. Muse have got steadily worse as they started out pretty promisingly, then as albums went by, added layer after layer of unnecessary ostentatiousness.

The Knife ~ Like A Pen
 
Disagreed. What makes Muse great is that pointless bombastic grandiloquence. Sometimes less is more, hell, I should know, as most of my favourite bands are punk one way or another, but that's simply not their steez. It's like asking Arcade Fire to not be epic (although in their latest album they definitely turn down the epicness and it works very well).

If I want pointless bombastic grandiloquence I'll listen to Emerson Lake & Palmer, since they were more grandiloquent, more bombastic, and more pointless.

Back in my teenage days I had that whole prog thing going on, the belief that the reason some bands didn't play 7 minute songs with multiple time signature changes and huge solos was because they were incapable. After a while I realised that, actually, it's because they didn't need to. Johnny Marr of the Smiths played guitar lines as difficult as anything any of the big metal or prog acts put out - but for him they were the basis of a 3-minute pop song. Just adding more only works up to a point; once you reach that you're just saturating things, and everything just melts into one. Muse used to be a thoroughly decent band, but they just disappeared up their own asses. A bit like Smashing Pumpkins or Nine Inch Nails before them.

Once I felt like the bombast was something that added to the songs. As they've gone on, it's feeling more and more like the bombast is something designed to mask the songs' inadequacies. A bit like how the comedy videos were designed to draw attention away from the realisation that the Foo Fighters never made a good record apart from their first album.

you serious? :eek: muse is awesome!
Some evidence of this is their butchering of Feeling Good. God that is an awful rendition of a classic soul song.

I think they are just simply awful. The lead singer couldn't properly hit a note even if his life depended on it.

AAAAAH! Muse!:eek: I thought you had better taste then that!
LOL! That's probably because I like Powderfinger and so on. :D Actually I like a lot of different stuff. It sometimes depends on my mood and what I want to hear. I sometimes like to focus on specific instrumentals, like bass or drums, focus on those and tune everything else out. For instance if I want drums, I might listen to some Led Zeppelin (John Bonham was lead-foot drummer, awesome). In this particular Muse tune, I liked the bass and then around the 1:45 time mark there's some decent drum going on.
