Oh--I just read the title of the thread.

These bands have very thoughtful emotional music but not easy to get into though.

Bands that TRY to sound like Muse but are merely copy cats.. Zornik, Fightstar
I just listened to Pure Reason Revolution and I have to say it was totally lacking in emotional energy (yes, yes I know, I'm a pompous ass). I couldn't make out the difference between the songs on the album either. Chosing a track was a bit like trying to distingush between a spoonful of porridge taken from one side of the bowl over one taken from the other. It's all YUK!

Fightstar faired better. I got quite excited about `Floods'. Still something missing though. I can't quite put my finger on it.

When are Muse going to release another album?

They are a support band and perhaps they should stay that way; not bad, but not exceptional either (just imho!). I can't listen to just any old tat on my Philosophical Rock you know.

Neeeeeeeeeeeeeext.

Sorry but "philosophical rock" sounds rather elitist. If you want something where the music takes you on a journey then those bands I listed are a good start. If you mean lyric wise then can't really help you. Also try "Battles" they are rather unusual but unique. Also "Mr. Bungle" as well.

Oh, it isn't Elitist. Well ok, I suppose it is on a personal level, yes, because we don't all like the same sounds, but the fact we're on this forum leads me to believe we all like Muse. If something sounds bland to me, it's a subjective personal thing I suppose, so you shouldn't take it personally. I'm listening to Black Sabbath right now, which probably demonstrates my point quite well .

I seriously think any Muse fan should at least give them a chance
