progressive, politically active, hard rock band muse has been selling out massive stadiums around the world for the past decade and winning all kinds of internmuseational awards for the best rock band/album/track/etc in the world. in america not so much.

in large part this is because lead singer/composer/guitarist/pianist/lyricist matt bellamy doesn't hold back the hard truths when he describes musically how america's violent and controlling foreign and domestic policies crush individual free will and personal integrity.

check out this anthem from "uprising":

if you could flick a switch and open your third eye

you'd see that we should never be afraid to die.

rise up and take the power back.

it's time the fat cats had a heart attack.

you know that their time's coming to an end.

we have to unify and watch our flag ascend.

but they also write some of the most powerful love songs and sing like queen. so if you don't, perhaps it's time you knew them.

this week i'll preview their new cd "drones" which is scheduled to be released next week. it's safe to say you hear it here first (if not before)!
