5.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, my friend, not bad at all., 18 Jun 2002
This review is from: Dead Star / In Your World [CD 1] (Audio CD)
The first time I heard Deadstar, I kind of didn't 'get' it. It's not like other Muse songs. Well, it is. Kind of. I mean yeah, it owes a lot to classical music (particularly the romantic era), and comprises of energetic rifts, sublime harmonies, and almost improbably high, sustained notes (how he reaches them without squeezing very tightly is a complete mystery)...but it's a sort of more intense, innovative, experimental, manic sound (which is not to say that his older music isn't intense, innovative, experimental and manic. 'Cos it is. See?) It took me a few listens before I really got into it, and understood it (without meaning to sound scarily pretentious). Now I love it and can't get enough of it. And as with other Muse songs, particularly Falling Down, you can really feel his pain when you listen to it.
The B-Side, In Your World, has an ethereally beautiful piano introducion, then turns into a great head-banging track, also very emotional. Much more traditional Muse. But it's too short. There seems to be so much room for development that was just ignored. But hey, who am I to complain? I just can't wait for Hullabaloo now.
