I’ve been listening to Muse for many years now and though I admit some pieces are too heavy metal for my taste, Muse is still one of my top favorite bands. What I like about Muse if that you can’t compartmentalize their music – they are quite ambitious, mixing lots of different styles. Their music is an interesting fusion of many music genres: space rock, progressive rock, alternative rock, classical music and rock opera. In that respect they are very much like my all time favorite band, Queen!

Below is a perfect example of thier genius. I just love how Muse is flowing between classical and rock in this new age symphony!
