Muse at Glastonbury

I watched Muse's set at Glastonbury last night. They were fantastic. They really can do it live.

I wasn't actually there, I'm afraid; I watched it on (mainly) BBC3. Cath took my girls to Glastonbury yesterday, but they would have been in bed by the time Muse came on. Shame - the girls quite like them.

Muse are the find of the decade as far as I'm concerned. I have all three studio albums now; Showbiz, Origin of Symmetry and Absolution, plus their b-sides-plus-live-set effort, Hullabaloo. They are all good, but what's more, the later albums are better than the earlier. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with next.

Andy will leave a comment in a minute, calling them Radiohead rip-offs, or some such. You'll see. I think he's wrong, though; cetainly, Radiohead are an influence, but they have a voice of thier own, I think. Besides, I don't intend to start taking guidance in musical taste from a man who raves about Marillion. ;-)

BTW, I've been getting some odd comments on an earlier Muse related post of mine. This is why: www.google.com/search?q=Free+CD+Muse.
