Muse...A band most people associate with the song Knights of Cydonia on Guitar Hero. Well Muse is much more then that. They are a band that give the term music a different meaning. Their style of music is very unique, with very few bands being close to the same genre. Anyways, to this c.d.. It sounds like a futuristic march of armies crossing many galaxies. (Bizarre description, I know.) The album artwork on this cd is also very intriguing. A twisted hexagonal color wheel, this really struck my interest. With some of their songs sounding similar [ in my opinion] to Queen, Hollywood Undead, and many other, it is simply amazing of how they can fuse the music styles together, and still be good. For any true fan of music, this c.d. should be in your collection. Muse is one band that is a must.

Side Note: I also love how Muse can make people sound dumb, without even saying words. What I mean by this is, I saw a video (which will be posted below) of the band Muse, performing on an Italian tv show. Their vocalist, Matt Bellamy, and their drummer, Dominic Howard, actually traded places, and played an entire song. The tv show host (not knowing the band at all) actually interviewed the drummer, thinking he was the actual singer.

Suggested Songs: Uprising, or really just any Muse song.
