Post Matt Bellamy is the Man
I dunno is any of you guys are Muse fans but I'm really into their stuff (not the new album though) and I think Matt Bellamy (singer/guitarist of muse) is a kickass guitarist. He's kinda sloppy sometimes live but his riffs and solos and stuff are still really sweet, and the random squeals and string noise actually adds to the whole rock feel too. Not to mention he's an awesome singer.

Any of you guys muse fans or just dig Bellamy's style? He's not the most technical player out there but I think in terms of contemporary POPULAR rock bands out there, Muse and Bellamy kick major ass.

I love Muse. But their new single is god awful.

I think Matt has a hand up on all modern rock guitarists because of his creativity. Although he does have some decent chops. He's just a great musician overall with a great voice.

I haven't picked up the new album but after hearing their new single dozens of times I don't even want to bother downloading it.

Yes, they are a great band, but I dislike Matt's new approach of making random noises with effects rather than decent guitar fills like he used to.

The new album is good but is far more accessible after reading Orwell's 1984, a great book, which essentially is what the album is all about.

I thought the album was great. I tend not to listen to radio/TV so it doesn't get overplayed to me 8)

Muse are kickass

in the bonus DVD of the new album you see him do some alt picking shred for laughs (it didn't make it on the album)


and yes, you got to have string noises on your recordings, otherwise it sounds very sterile and not like you totally rocked it.
My last original song lacked that in the most parts and people said that it didn't really show my personality as a guitarist etc. blabla

I think the main reason why people don't like the new Muse album is because Black Holes and Revelations was so bombastic and the new one is supposed to be more stripped down. Most people probably wanted another Black Holes and Revelations kind of album.

I've always thought Muse were a good band, Matt Bellamy is a talented guy, once seen him singing, hammering octaves on a guitar and playing piano with the other hand all at the same time!!!
However all of their albums all seem a bit samey in my opinion.

Nice band, but i dont like there new album. It's kinda techno/trance/dance...

Bellamy is a cool guitar player. Maybe the master of guitar effects. so many cool effects.

But he isn't the best guitar player ever...
Jason Becker :D

That's all right, we hate you.

And the circle of hate is complete.

hahah calm down now nitefly!

Im seeing muse at MGS so im pretty pumped for that, i hope they still play a lot of their old stuff since i really do not dig the new album. its like they took all their last albums and surgically removed all the balls.

that song 'undisclosed desires' sounds like a shitty techno song and matt bellamy even plays a KEYTAR live for that song...that is the antithesis of rock or cool or anything like that.

I really enjoyed Absolution. Also quite like bits of the new album. Unnatural Selection's definitely my favourite off that album. Not a favourite band of mine, but I'd go see them live if I had the chance

For some reason I've always felt that his ego kind of shines through the music and live performances. He's never been a person I'd like to meet.
