He uses similar effects on the album tracks too, so away with you!

Greig, I've been a fan from the very start, sur! Good to see them getting the recognition the deserve at last.

Of the three studio albums, probably best to start with the best and most recent, Absolution. It's fcking brilliant. Not a bad track on it, the most well rounded of the three. "Stockholm Syndrome" and "Hysteria" to be played at loud volume, two of the greatest guitar tracks evahhhh.

1st album Showbiz was remarkable for 3 kids - they were extraordinarily young. Some classic tracks on there, a wee bit of filler, but great stuff. Imagine Jeff Buckley, Radiohead and Queen all mixed together. Nice.

Second album is excellent, Origin of Symmetry, with a big hit in "Plug In Baby", standout for me on there is "Bliss" however - could listen to that over and over and over.

Try Absolution and see if you like it.

By the way, I've heard wee bits and bobs of Muse and read a lot of critical acclaim (ie "opinion"). Are they any good? If so, what do people recommend for the first time buyer?

Hi Grieg when we going to have that pint and chat ?

If you have a DVD player I strongly recomend "Hullabaloo" it will blow your cotton socks off and gives you a very good insight to the band on the bouns DVD. Note that Muse have won best live band in every award this year.

I seen them at the SEEC and can confirm it is the best live band I have seen there , in fact the best live band I have seen since Pink Floyd, yes that good Grieg.

If your going down the Cd route start with "Absolution" this is the album that's given them a wider audience which is a good introduction to the band as it has the best production ( BIG SOUND )

Very clever band combining Clasical music , Modern dance sounds and Rock to give a sound that's diffrent from the run of the mill.

Origin of symmetry and showbiz are best listend to on the live DVD which is really worth the money.

If you like the band thier is also a very intresting book been written simply called "Muse" It's a great rock and roll story priced about £6.00.

Happy listening :)

I think the majority of the live awards for Muse lately have come from their headlining slot at Glastobury...that was one of themost stunning things I've ever seen, and that was just watching it on the telly.

Feel so sorry for the drummer though...probably the proudest day of their lives, but one of the darkest. The drummer's dad died of a heart attack hours after they were off stage in a first aid tent at Glastonbury - tragic.

Dug out Death to The Pixies and gave it a wee listen. What a great band! Some superb stuff on that. Here Comes Your Man was never off the jukebox when we were in the union. It always reminds me of my student days and, I believe, is still on the jukebox in the present union.

Others to relax to:-

1. Adore - Smashing Pumpkins

2. The Yellow Shark - Frank Zappa and the Frankfurt Ensemble Modern

3. Elephant - The White Stripes

4. King Crimson compilation made up by a pal from the Wee Howff; put together from 1981 - 2001 releases. Great stuff, in particular Discipline (band line up - Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Tony Levin, Bill Bruford. Fúcking shit hot).

5. Grace - Jeff Buckley (aye okay, at last)
