5.0 out of 5 stars Origin Of Symmetry!!!, 5 Feb 2004
This review is from: Origin of Symmetry (Audio CD)
This album is a masterpiece! Every track is special in its own right, and the Muse lads are certainly on top form!
From the start, this album shows creativity and imagination. 'Newborn' (my personal favourite track) has a riff that will force you to jump up and 'mosh'. Then into the powerful guitar in 'Bliss', and through into the funky bass-line of 'Hyper Music', the energy on this album never stops. Tracks like 'Space Dementia' and 'Citizen Erased' are emotional but still rocky, and the piano in Space Dementia really is a triumph of musical genius on behalf of Matt Bellamy - whose voice on this album is superbly unique. With the addition of inventive solid drumming by Dom Howard, and groovy bass played by Chris Wolstenhome, the quality of this album is extremely high. Bellamy's songwriting skills are wonderfully portrayed in this incredible album. If you're into rock, grunge, metal, whatever!, just buy this album and it is sure to inspire you to go and write some amazing songs!
This is a must-own album for anyone who appreciates music, particularly of the guitar-ish rock variety!

5.0 out of 5 stars De-Loused In The Comatorium!!!, 5 Feb 2004
Wow! This album is simply incredible! It is by far the most imaginative and creative album written for years. It cleverly combines rock, funk, jazz, latin, and other craaazy styles into one massive album full of surprises.
Bixler's voice is supreme, and commands full attention. The riffs conjured up by Rodriguez-Lopez on guitar are second-to-none in originality and effectiveness. As for the drumming, it is nice to finally hear a drummer who is not afraid to show what he can do. Jon Theodore manages to set the pace whilst simultaneously making the drums seem like an additional melodic instument as opposed to a simple backing. With Flea (form Red Hot Chili Peppers) on bass, and John Frusciante (also from RHCP) on guitar for the amazing 'Cicatriz Esp', there are top musicians a-plenty on this album.
I was first attracted to TMV after hearing the sensational debut single 'Inertiatic Esp', which is one of the more 'normal' songs on the album. Having heard lots of At The Drive-In, I can safely say that D-LITC beats it hands down! If you want an album that will inspire you, look no further than this one!

This is simply THE BEST ALBUM EVER! Wehter you're into rock, metal, grunge, or just like listening to music, you will LOVE this album!
The stoner riff style is not as prominent in this album as it is in the debut self-titled album and 'Rated R', which means there is more melodic, more sophisticated tunes and ideas which make this album so 'listenable'. The voices of Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan are stunning all the way through, as is Nick Oliveri's screaming in '...Millionaire' and 'Six Shooter'. Dave Grohl is on top form on drums, providing a solid and imaginitave backing to the catchy and imaginatave guitars on top. This is an album which you can listen to over and over again, without ever needing to skip a track! FANTASTIC!!!
