It’s trying to speak

We saw Muse Friday night at Irvine Meadows (it’s called something else now, but screw that, it’s Irvine Meadows). It was a fantastic show. The more I think about it the more I think it was the best show I’ve ever been to. I love Absolution and the new one has been growing on me steadily, but they always sounded like studio songs to me, I didn’t expect them to work so well live despite people saying they’re a good live band. I was so wrong. Everything they played sounded better live than the recorded versions, often a lot better. I was blown away. They are clearly a live act first and foremost.

They’re apparently out of the U.S. for the rest of this year, but if you ever get a chance to see them, don’t stop to think about it, GO.

    MUSE is the f’n best band no one knows about. I have seen them twice, missed them earlier this year and love them dearly.

    Your impressions are pretty much right re: live band. I have many boots and videos of them and Matt simply DOMINATES live. They are powerful, musical and so damn good at what they do.

    I envy you for having seen them last week!
