Take a bow

July 12, 2006 // Tagged in: madonna, muse, Music

Muse finally have a new album out. The first song on it is named “Take a bow”. If any one of you who were around when people still listened to Madonna’s musical output are still alive, you’ll surely remember that she in fact had a song by that name. It may be a coincidence, but I don’t think so. So I’m obviously thinking that it was indeed their wish for people to see this connection, post about it on their blogs and then actually compare both them and Madonna by reviewing both their work and lives in not more than 1000 words. Their wish shall be granted!

Style
Muse: British guitar rock, interlaced with loads of synthesizers and catchy tunes.
Madonna: Well, just about every style out there. Some people call it “reinventing”, I call it “jumping a bandwagon”.

Albums
Muse
Four albums, each new one a tad better than the other. A feat almost impossible to pull off, they have.
Madonna
20 albums in 23 years. And all of them sucked. Except for that one of course, you know, the one that made all those alternative radio stations hail Madonna for being such a pop-chamaeleon. Well, the album still sucked.

Personal
Muse
Prototypical rock band. Charismatic singer, destroy stages, drinking and stuff. And the inability to form coherent sentences, just like me. Ok, that was made up.
Madonna
Total Diva. Is into a derivation of the Kabbalah. Destroyed Guy Ritchie’s career by marrying him and forcing him to cast her for his movies, even though she wouldn’t know acting if it jumped in her face and bit off her nose.

Now, as you can see from my unbiased review of both artists, Madonna truly does suck.
Muse, on the other hand, is quite possibly one of the best bands to ever walk this earth. Thus, I won’t feel bad by telling you that you must buy their new album, otherwise you’ll rot in hell. And you can guess what hell will sound like.
