I remember some years ago Muse was being heralded as this incredible band trying to awaken everyone through exposing the illuminatti in their music. To think I sort of fell for that for a minute.

Muses first 3 albums were normal. It wasn’t until 2006 that they sold out to the Illuminati for good. Besides you can tell their singer has used magic to enhance his vocals. A great comparison is their first single Sunburn to their song Take a Bow off their fourth album. He has the ability to haunt you with his vocals.

The two albums of theirs I know are Black Holes and Revelations and The Resistance which were 2006 and 2009..With songs like MkUltra, Uprising, and Take A Bow it certainly seemed they were trying to influence people in a different way from others. His voice is pretty incredible – they were wildly popular then disappeared.

They still sell out shows and have almost 12 million followers on Spotify. But yeah I first heard about them as a kid in that era. Matt Bellamy seriously has a presence of a male siren especially in Black Holes and Revelations. And the ironic thing is the video of Sunburn seemed to foreshadow his future of gaining the ability to haunt people with his voice. A girl literally begins to go crazy when he is tormenting her with his voice in the video as a metaphor for her conscience.

Hmm. I may have to look up that video. So you think his extraordinary voice is part of his pact? It would make sense. I didn’t realize they were still so popular. I do remember people used to rave about their live shows

Let me know what you think? And I wouldn’t say they are still popular. They lost alot of fans who were with them since they started putting out music and from looking at their early work I can see why. The music industry seriously taints peoples ability to continue making good music. The fans they currently have seem to be the ones who were with them since The Resistance came out in 2009.

Black Holes and Revelations and Origin of Symmetry are the main Muse albums I’m familiar with. There are others I’ve heard, but it’s been many years since I’ve sat down and listened to a Muse album.
It’s funny, because I remember when they were becoming really popular, I was in 7th or 8th grade at the time… And I was irritated with the constant comparisons to Radiohead, a band I grew up with from very early childhood, and knew nothing could compare to (for me).
Everywhere I went at that time while Muse was huge, I kept hearing them being touted basically as “another Radiohead”, which is weird, because all they really have in common are electronic style/keyboards, and a strong yet wispy singer. Musically, they aren’t that similar at all.

But I agree that Matt Bellamy has a haunting sort of voice… Yet for whatever reason, I haven’t really cared for a Muse song in ages. I sort of liked Thought Contagion, but even when it was getting a lot of radio play a few years ago, it always gave me an eerie sort of feeling… I just remember thinking something about the lyrics and the deep reverberating sort of beat were oddly creepy.

I heard about their comparison to Radiohead also. I can understand why people would compare them but I see nothing actually similar either. But from listening to that song you said it is kinda eerie.
