pretty huge muse fan. bigger radiohead fan. most people i know (like me) listen to and enjoy the two bands for very different reasons. i wont go into the details but i don’t know anyone who would argue muse has better composers than radiohead. Bellamy is probably a better guitarist than greenwood (in the guitar battle sense). The only legitimate comparison between the two bands is their vocalist’s singing range. also, the first 3 muse albums are so much better than the 1st coldplay one (which is their only good one, by far) \\endrant
best comment on the thread.
i like how it sounds more like a conversation now
replace “best” with “most recognizable” and all the winners suddenly make sense
70% is much better than most bands get out of a traditional record label deal (~20+/-% is common). The obvious problem is that when you multiply .7 * .2 you get the tiny royalties that people have been complaining about
How can they say the video is ‘social commentary’ or whatever when the overall message is “BUY OUR SHIT”
its a shame cause the product does seem to bring positivity into the world, but the bottom line is they are using the beastie’s song (and creative property) to profit
Party and Bullshit is one of my favorites, though admittedly I’m not a huge biggie fan
I think New Year’s Eve is the most overlooked/forgotten Walkmen song
wow this perfectly describes everything i feared when i heard the first single….
Really surprised Kishi Bashi didn’t make this list.
One of my favorites of the year, and npr seemed to give his album a lot of attention when it came out
