Muse - Starlight (Chris Avramopoulos Remix)

"Time after time Muse's epic soundscapes entice me; however hard I try to resist; and thoroughly excellent new single "Starlight" is no different. Beginning with supposedly foreboding and Muse trademark guitars Matt Bellamy doesn't wait too long before seducing the listener with his most powerful tool: his voice. All said, the band's musical arrangements on the track don't come into being just by accident. This single definitely falls into the category of Muse material whereby both Bellamy's voice and the music itself fuse together to create an awesome fusion of two elements together against the world. The bridge absolutely the point at which this is proven. "I don't know if it's worth it anymore... And hold you in my arms"; such a deeply romantic sentiment hidden in a whirlwind of confusion. And having seen "Starlight" performed live in someone's arms I can testify that Muse's songsmith has done it once again. Here's to hoping that he some may call the lyricist who defined a generation continues to articulate our innermost feelings for a long, long time." Article source:
"Muse is a alternative rock band from Teignmouth, England, United Kingdom. The band consists of Matthew Bellamy on lead vocals, piano, keyboard and guitar, Chris Wolstenholme on backing vocals and bass guitar, and Dominic Howard on drums and percussion.They have been friends since their formation in early 1990 and changed band names a number of times (such as Gothic Plague, Fixed Penalty, and Rocket Baby Dolls) before adopting the name Muse. Since the release of their fourth album, Morgan Nicholls has also appeared with the band at live performances to provide keyboards, samples/synth, and backing vocals.Their sound is a blend of alternative rock, classical music, electronica, metal, spanish guitars, and progressive rock. Usually they use the bass line as the driving force, often with the guitar providing only an extra layer to the song rather than carrying the melody, the bass has distortion and other effects applied to it to achieve a greater weight, allowing the guitar to digress from the main tune and play higher notes. Another peculiarity is Muse´s piano style in many of their songs; their music has been inspired by the works of Romantic pianist-composers such as Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and Liszt, and has thus resulted in a fusion of Romantic style with modern rock.The band is known for their energetic live performances and front man Matthew Bellamy’s eccentric and avid interests in global conspiracy, extraterrestrial life, theology and the apocalypse (as much as in Space and theoretical physics). Their lyrical themes involve madcap conspiracy theory, revolutionary rabble-rousing, weird stuff about aliens (or Zetas, if you please), religions and other such classic Muse concerns."
