Purpose to a Muse

Post  misery guts on Thu Jul 20, 2017 6:42 am

Cornish three-piece who've released 7 albums already and look set to release an 8th in the not-too-distant future. Singer & main writer Matt Bellamy has helped evolve their sound from early bombast to rock and funk experiments, as their fearsome live reputation grows. I took a while to get the drift, but it was rewarding when I did. Here are a few of their most memorable moments:

Time Is Running Out

Knights of Cydonia

Uprising

Undisclosed Desires

Dig Down

Muse: Live at Rome - Olympic Stadium
A band whom I can take or leave, and I never really grasp the critical adulation. This wasn't too bad a show, mind, from Jul 2013, and featured several songs I actually knew, and a few I liked.

Muse Live @ R1BW
From Norwich, it's the Welsh rockers and a useful run-through of their act, especially stuff from their new album. They finished on 'Knights of Cydonia', which is my favourite song of theirs by a long way.

Discovering: Muse
I disliked them at first, but have slowly been won over by gems like "Knights of Cydonia" and "Uprising". Apparently they're not Welsh at all, but formed as outsiders in Cornwall, made in-roads in the USA, and honed an apocalyptic bombast for the masses. Matt Bellamy has apparently toned down the conspiracist angle since he married a Hollywood actress. They have recently released a new album which also went to #1. Good.

Muse @ Glastonbury 2016
They headlined on Friday night on the Pyramid Stage with a lengthy set which the BBC helpfully broadcast in 2 chunks on different channels. They finished on Knights of Cydonia, though, which was good.

Muse at Reading Festival 2017
They headlined the main Stage on the Sunday night, and did an impressive show starting with recent single Dig Down. The encore began with special guest Brian Johnson to do Back In Black, which they followed by favourites Uprising and Knights Of Cydonia. They had a good time, and so did the crowd.
