The best song of 2006 from the best album of 2006 by the best group in 2006 and the best live act of 2006.
A completely over the top spaghetti western theme of a tune from galloping horses to lazers to crashing guitars. It is total madness that if you think it through should never work, but Muse get it to work in a way that no other group around at the moment are able to.
If you think the song is over the top - watch the video!!!!
Knights of Cydonia is completely over the top, from the clip clop horse noises that make you wanna pretend you're out riding to the melodramatic chorus of "no ones gonna take me alive!" It is, however absolutely brilliant. Buy it now!!!!!!!!!

Very interesting music. A bit of heavy metal meets country and twist of electronica. Thoroughly worth the listen. I actually happened to like it very much.
Great for listening to in traffic. It keeps your mind on the road and off other things.

Knights of Cydonia is honestly their most popular song next to Supermassive Black Hole, but either way it's awesome. I'm a collector of Muse and a huge fan and i love getting their singles. This one was pretty good, it's their two most popular songs and one is live, and Muse sounds so much better live. Totally worth buying if you're collecting or just a casual fan.

I was disappointed that this only had 2 songs on it! I didn't even know that they made CD's with only one or two songs on them. I ordered it for my son for Christmas. Read the fine print is all I've got to say!
