Lug 21 2011, 18:42 di VGKSPlatz 10: Joy Wants Eternity - You Who Pretend to Sleep
Als Einstieg in die Top 10 kommt das nächste Post-Rock Album. Ganz ehrlich, ich fragte mich einen kurzen Moment, wieso ich dieses Stück vor all den anderen bereits aufgezählten Platten gestellt habe. Dann aber spielte ich das Album erneut ab und mir fiel es wieder ein. Eine Erklärung ist wirklich schwer, also versuche ich es der Reihe nach anzugehen.
Mit Existences Rust gibt es einen starken Einstieg: Der Bassdrum ist so grandios geraten, dass es einen schwer fällt, nicht mit dem Kopf mitzugehen. Wenn dann noch ordentlich getrommelt wird und die E-Gitarren ihren stilgerechten Einsatz kriegen, wird Rock genauso groß wie Post geschrieben. Nach Knapp 4 Minuten ist der Spaß dann vorbei, und man taucht ein in die gefühlvolle Welt des Songs Above the Clouds Lies Eternal Sun. Im Ernst, die Gitarre ist so großartig gespielt, dass sie Effekte im Geist auslöst wie es sonst nur die Explosions in the Sky können. …

Ott 5 2010, 5:45 di mikasaurThere are some pretty damn good cover songs out there. And since I haven't seen a concert since the last time I wrote (I will tomorrow!), I thought I'd just vomit up some good covers to check out.
Feeling Good originally written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd. Matthew Bellamy — the lead singer of Muse — has a voice that can kind of get on my nerves pretty quickly. And for that reason I have a sort of love-hate relationship with this song. What are you whining about you whiny-voiced bastard? Oh, I guess it's not really that bad. Oh, it's actually pretty good. No wait, no it's not! No, yeah, it is.
Check out this version by Nina Simone, which I think is much better. Plus the animated typography is just plain cool. Feeling Good
Umbrella originally written by The-Dream, Christopher Stewart, Kuk Harrell and Jay-Z and performed by Rihanna. I have to say I like the cover better. …
Lug 31 2010, 16:29 di milann89I am writing this journal to show off my love for Muse by presenting my favourites from each of their studio albums. My ranking obsession has finally led to my long-postponed album ranking list. I cannot say it's a definite list for each day brings another emotion connected to a Muse song or an entire album.
The fact is, Muse is not a band which is positioned in my mind by the likes of a single album. The true greatness of Muse is delivered as a whole. An album isn't guilty of making me cry for just thinking of seeing them live. Muse as an extraordinary piece of art and energy, breathing through each of Matt's guitar riffs, Chris phlegmatic, but energetic live bass lines, and Dom's childish smile, is what makes the music of Muse so inspiring, emotional, enervating, epic and magical.

Muse at Glastonbury this year has long been set as the “one to watch”. I overheard one say to another “Muse tomorrow, I don’t give a f*** if I don’t see anybody else” and another say “watching them will make you a fan”… But tonight there’s more to it than that, as this is Muse’s first Glastonbury appearance since the tragic passing of drummer Dom Howard’s father, shortly after watching the band perform their greatest show to the date.
As much as I prayed and danced around in circles for things to go the way I predicted them to by open unusually with a classic, they kept the commercial approach to a setlist opener and kicked off with Uprising followed-up buy Supermassive Black Hole to clear the new hype and Twilight obligation swiftly, and hit their stride with New Born and the near perfect Map of the Problematique.
The fat eighties beat of Guiding Light works the open air, and the setlist return of Citizen Erased is a big moment for me…

Dic 14 2009, 18:37 di DuplodeThe Resistance is, from the perspective of Muse's established fanbase, a divisive album. While it has contributed to attract a broad new audience to the band, a large share of old-time fans felt alienated by it, and some even came to write off the band altogether. The new album led to hasty, precipitate judgement on Muse and the direction they are taking. In order to dispel any possible misconceptions, it is essential to understand the evolution of the band towards The Resistance. For that reason, this argument will begin with brief reviews of their four previous "main" studio albums.
The path began some ten years ago with Showbiz, which is a strong and surprisingly consistent début effort for the still very young band. Granted, it is somewhat more conventional than its follow-ups, and in a few select places it does sound kind of like you-know-who. Nevertheless, many of the elements which would set Muse apart were already blooming at that stage: the sweeping…
