Can I be your Muse?
I'm not usually the kind of person that will shill music. I dont pick up megaphones and shout the greatness of the White Album. I don't haunt the 33 record racks at Amoeba. I think Tomas Tallis is equally as interesting as Frank Zappa. So forgive me while I put on my Professor Harold Hill hat for a minute here, and implore you to buy the shiny brass band I'm selling:
Muse: Black Holes and Revelations
I like sitting and listening to an album all at once - makes me feel like I gave the whole 'music enthusiast' thing a shot and really gave the 'theme' a chance. Imagine my surprise to discover that not only had I heard most of these songs already, but they were ones that I had thunk 'wow- I need to get that' the first time around. They got better and better, and I was truly surprised to hear a good album out of a band that I had only known as 'one of those alternative bands from KROQ'.
So, to all you nappy headed hos....go out and get this. Order it from amazon in your pjs. You wont regret it.
Muse, which starts with M which doesnt rhyme with A and that stands for awesome.
