So recently I've been looking into the band Muse. They're gaining popularity and I wanted to check out why. What I found interesting was the difference in sound between their new material (Resistance and some of Black Holes) and their old stuff (Absolution). Personally I prefer the older stuff.
Any Muse fans (or otherwise) with an opinion they'd like to share?
I'm a huge Muse fan. Got to see them live in Cincy this fall and it was phenomenal. Anyways, to answer your question, I too like the old Muse better. Showbiz is one of my favorite albums of all time. Black Holes also had some phenomenal songs, but it took me a while to find them hidden amongst the more popular tracks.
