Today's CD review will be of Muse's second album, Showbiz. The feel of this album is very different from their fourth album (Absolution, previously mentioned), but the style is unmistakably Muse. This album is a bit more edgy than Absolution and makes more use of noise as a musical element. The tunes are catchy though not always memorable, and the falsetto is actually very powerful, especially at the end of the song Showbiz. Their non-edgy stuff works well too, though sometimes they sound too much like a frat rock band .

Here are a few samples for your listening pleasure. As usual the sound quality has been greater reduced for downloading:

Falling Down (409KB MP3)
Showbiz (288KB MP3)
Muscle Museum (437KB MP3)

We also watched Anchorman: Legend of Ron Burgundy a few nights back. It was hit-or-miss with some incredibly funny jokes and some incredibly bad Will Farrell cliches. Overall, it could have been edited to be a little shorter with fewer laughter droughts and been more worthwhile.
