I am a big Muse fan...

I love them because of their lyrics(and music of course) and matt's world makes their music even more interesting..

I think their lyrics and themes encourage people to go out there and inform themselves .. which is pretty cool

I looove Muse
I've always loved listening to their alternative lyrics and their musical style is unique. That song is pretty cool, sounds almost like Queen at a certain point.

I'm not sure if a conspiracy is at work here but they are still continuing with their alternative views, which I like. Most people will listen to the music and do just that, listen to the music, not read into the lyrics or the deeper meaning of the songs.

The artwork is very cool!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention
I wasn't aware of a new album, and I call myself a Muse fan?

Edit: Some more of their wicked album art...

I embedded a few of the full songs on my BTS thread:

New Muse album - 'Resistance'

They'll probably be removed eventually due to copyright (as I've already had to re-source another version of 'Uprising')

**edit** the cover art for 'The Resistance' looks strikingly similar to a few things from my short story 'These Dark Worlds - specifically the bubble I described surrounding Earth as well as the 600m high by 600m across 64-cube octahedral hyperspatial device found inside Uluru (Ayer's Rock).

I think this must be proof there is a collective creative mind churning out ideas relevant to what's actually going on in the world (as I doubt anyone from Muse has read the story).

I believe the multicoloured shell on the album cover represents a number of things - first of all it's a barrier separating us from the rest of the universe. That barrier is seen to be crumbling. It also represents escape from this cage we find ourselves in. It's a version of a 'Stargate' similar to one Michael Tsarion speaks of which is the 'field' surrounding Earth that keeps us here (with our captors) and friendly visitors out.

I always thought that their song,Knights of Cydonia, was a hint towards the subject. (Ignoring the goofy video, of course.)

On an unrelated note, I also think this song is related to the subject as well.

I agree, just bought the album and gotta say its the best one by far, stunning actually. Not trying to plug them or anything, but its simply stunning!!! Go buy it!

My fav is probably Black Holes & Revelations, but this would be my second favourite. It's close though.

Fav songs are Uprising, USOE, Undisclosed Desires, MK Ultra and Overture!

Here's the official video for Uprising:

I just started reading through the track listing and thought to myself, "I bet there's an ATS thread on this."

We like it!

Ufology is a factor in many of Muse's videos, take for example..


Sing for Absolution..

I've heard Muse but never associated them with anything profound. Might check them out more as a result.

Yeah, Knights of Cydonia goes like this:

How can we win when fools can be kings. Don't waste your time or time will waste you.


No one's going to take me alive, time has come to make things right, you and I must fight for our rights, you and me must fight to survive.

I think that would say enough about the song's meaning. I'd say the video is just used as a metaphor for the actual meaning.

Also check my signature below for another lyric.

Regarding Radiohead, the song Paranoid Android goes as follow:

When I am king, you will be first against the wall. With your opinion which is of no consequence at all.


Ambition makes you look pretty ugly. Kicking and squealing, Gucci little piggy.

Muse are great and fair play to them for doing this...

Also check out radiohead

They too put political lyrics in their music.

This is from an article that thinks Muse's singer Matthew Bellamy lost his marbles because he believes 9/11 was an inside job:

So, anyway: Matt Bellamy - yes, that Matt Bellamy - reckons 9/11 was an "inside job", carried out in order to _"have an excuse to invade the Middle East"_. You probably didn't hear it here first. We didn't - we read CMU.

He said something along the lines of this, here:

_"September 11 is clearly an inside job, there's massive evidence that suggests that it was either allowed to happen or even worse, deliberately made to happen. There was a document called _Project For The New America Century_ which was made by neo-Con writers in the '90s who supplied most of the agenda that Bush is putting into place now, which clearly says, _'We need a Pearl Harbor-level of event so we can have an excuse to invade the Middle East'."

haha i love muse! The're not only musical genuies but there visual artists too. And yeah theres tonnnssss of stuff in their musics. watch the video for "time is running out" that pretty much showing that there people behind our goveernments. Also someone should check out the video for "invincible" theres so much symbolism in there. My mate had my looking at it reallly carfully and theres ufos and all sorts.

as for the new album they talk about about the story behind it and symbolism in a break down that was on radio on the other week try googleing "muse resistance album b reakdown" and see if you find something

Muse come from the town where I live in Devon, they played a couple of weekends ago on the green in the middle of town, they were fantastic.
What a weekend 10,000 tickets sold for each gig, that number again on the green and beach, no trouble ony four arrests for minor misdemeanours. All the profits went to a local charity.

My three kids went to school with them, my son who is also in a band used to hang out with a couple of them. I am not telling this for any other reason than to say they are a fantastic bunch of guys and whay you see is what you get,
They are not writing lyrics to please the masses, they have been into alternative issues since I have known them.

MUSE, I only got into them a year ago, about the same time i noticed ATS and Project Camelot.
Superbly written songs both lyrically and musically.
Funny that i read reviewers stating that the last two albums have gotten worse? I myself think that they have progressed well and prefer more tracks from the later albums.
Muse Rock!!

Well done guys and thankyou for your place in this reality!

Hey, great to hear you're from Devon. I lived in the Newcastle upon Tyne for 3 years, but now live all the way on the other side of the world - a place that Muse were actually able to find once in 2006, but I didn't go to see them because I only knew one song of theirs (ie Supermassive Blackhole).

So I didn't care to see them (hah!). If I had only known how great they truly are! Now I'm kicking myself for not going.

I just remember hearing Supermassive Blackhole at the seafood market that we go to here in Taiwan. I was impressed as I thought I was the only one in Taiwan who had discovered that song on Little did I know that it was a world hit, and not just some indie song lingering on by some band from somewhere called Muse.

Was it the Seaside Rendezvous you went to see? That's a song by Queen also by the way. They (or at least Matt Bellamy) must have been fans of Queen since they were little.

I believe Matt is only one year older than me, so like with me the musical influence must have come from listening to his parents music (Queen, classical music, glitterpop etc.).

I believe his Dad was one of the Tornadoes? Therefore another great band from your town
The talent runs through his family.

Anyway, Muse are of course amazing. My aunt and uncle also went to school with the members of U2 (same age, same school). My aunt saw Bono at her last class reunion with his pregnant wife, but she has nothing to do with them since they all graduated. It must have been Larry Mullen who asked her out on a date as she refused.

Imagine the road I could have had into the music business if she had said yes!

I'm very glad to have found this thread already having been made.

I've been quite a fan of Muse's work since I heard heard "Hysteria" in 2004 on the radio. Personally, I think the only other band that which may have gotten more play time for me could be Thursday.

Anyhow, I heard the first single "Resistance" when I was shopping with my girlfriend at a mall here in Indonesia.

After I heard it, I immediately used the free wifi in the mall to hit up iTunes and get the single.

Once I heard the song, and the lyrics, I felt such a release of tension. No more are people hiding behind allegories and synonyms.

As soon as I could buy the full album, I did. Since then, I've more or less had it on repeat whenever I go somewhere (I don't drive here and so everything is a taxi ride away).

All in all, I find that the album is not only a solid step further into progress and concept, but I feel such a wave of real emotions from some of these songs, especially the last song in all three parts; so much so that if I sing along, I am, at times, moved to tears with the horrible reality of it.

In so many words I feel they really are right; this may be our last chance to forgive ourselves and get everything right. Love is our resistance and people are waking up. No more lies. No more wars. No more torture. No more denial.

As a person who has been contacted amongst other things, these songs aleve some of the pain and subsequent frustration I feel for the rest of the world, and within myself as I wait for our big day to come.
