Bands that sound like Muse

Hey people,

This has probably been posted before, but I lack the wit to search the forums for replies.

I went on holiday to Crete last year with Muse on my iPod, providing me with many deep moments as I sat on the "philosophical rock" contemplating life and the Universe (I'd never istened to them before to be honest). Now I'm not saying Muse are all played out (I still listen to them) but for this years holiday, I'm looking for a similar experience. I suppose it's hard because Muse are somewhat unique in sound, but can anyone suggest some new music that would sit well with me on this years Philosophical Rock?

I appreciate your answers.

Robin

Radiohead perhaps... if anything, am listening to Kid A right now... so my opinion is swayed... but despite that, I think Radiohead make good thinking music... it's very beautiful music... another band who make beautiful music are Keane.

Regardless of the music, I hope you have a great holiday!

edit: just saw your joining date for the Muse Board... Hi, Hello and Welcome

Don't think there's a band which sounds like them, frankly, they're unique!
On the other hand, Placibo is their most similar artist on last.fm, so I guess yuo could try that (:

Haha, that just proves there's no band like them. Muse sound nothing like placebo.

Porcupine Tree

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

Well I was going for the more Philosophical approach like the thread maker noted. It is very hard to pick out a band that is similar to Muse.
